The Kardashians may be the royal family of reality television, but a large percentage of their income is actually earned from Instagram posts. And you can bet they're taking full advantage.
The Kardashian-Jenner squad are considered influencers on Instagram, and brands will shell out six figures for a single sponsored post. According to Us Weekly, Michael Heller, the CEO of the digital-marketing firm Talent Resources, estimates that some brands pay Kim $500,000 per post, whereas Kourtney and Khloé get around $250,000. Kim reaps the benefits of having 94.8 million followers; Khloé and Kourtney have 64.1 million and 54.3 million followers, respectively.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner are in on this money train, too. With Kendall's 76.4 million followers and Kylie's 89.1 million followers, Cosmopolitan suggests the sisters could each earn roughly $400,000 per sponsored post.
The products that the KarJenners have endorsed include hair vitamins and waist trainers, which Heller says "sell out immediately." He adds that "25 percent of their income" comes from sponsored posts alone.
