Hopper HQ has compiled the first-ever Instagram Rich List, to see exactly who is making the most money for their Instagram posts, using a mixture of internal data and publicly available information.

While every single Kardashian sister made the celebrity list, it was Selena Gomez who topped it, reportedly earning up to £425,000 for one post to her 122 million followers.

Meanwhile, beauty mogul Huda Kattan, aka Huda Beauty, topped the Influencer list – reportedly earning up to £14,000 for one post to her 20.5 million followers.

Huda is a Dubai-based beauty YouTuber who has since started her own make-up line, Huda Beauty, off the back of her incredibly successful Instagram account. Her range of liquid lipsticks, false eyelashes, highlighters and eyeshadow palettes are so popular that they consistently sell out almost immediately.

Co-Founder of social-media scheduling tool Hopper HQ, Mike Bandar, explained to the Daily Mail about the opportunities available on Instagram:

“With approximately 700 million active monthly users across the world, it offers a wealth of potential customers for brands that have the budget to harness the influence of the people on our lists, and a chance for people to make a real career out of “gramming”.

“In the last couple of years influencers and celebrities have really caught on to the fact that endorsing brands on Instagram pays off, and as you can see from our Rich Lists, there is a serious amount of money to be made.”
