Okay, mayyybe not more than you’ll EVER make (unless you’re trapped in the hell that is working minimum wage), but probably still more than you’ll ever see saved up in your bank account, and more than you’ll ever see written out in a check addressed to you.
Just like Scott Disick and his (failed) attempt at a sponsored Instagram post, Selena Gomez also makes money from brands by hocking their products. But just how much does Selena make? Girl’s got over 180 million followers across all her social media channels, which means she’s able to charge the big bucks when it comes to promotion:
As the top social media influencer worldwide, D’Marie has estimated Gomez’s social media posts are worth $550,000 when they appear across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook—a $300,000 increase from what her brand posts were worth just last December, according to Adweek.
With more than 180.6 million total followers across platforms and an average of 200,000 new followers per day (yes, every 24 hours), Gomez is absolutely dominating the social media market.
She has more than 90 million followers on Instagram alone, and recently made it into the Insta hall of fame with the most-liked post in the app’s history, a sponsored picture that currently boasts more than 4.6 million likes.(via)
The sponsored photo they’re talking about doesn’t even seem like an ad, although that’s the whole point:
Still not gonna drink Coca-Cola though, no matter how many likes Selena Gomez gets on Instagram.
