When Cristiano Ronaldo moved two Coca-Cola bottles out of view during a pre-game press conference before advising people to drink water instead, the soft drink giant’s market value plummeted by $4 billion, demonstrating the huge influence he and other superstars wield on popular opinion. But, of course, the megastar player is well aware of the magnitude of his impact. So he reaps the benefits in various ways, including sponsored Instagram postings to his over 300 million followers.
Ronaldo makes the most of any Instagram influencer per sponsored post, according to an analysis by social media marketing firm Hopper HQ, raking in an average of $1.6 million each time. This isn’t a one-of-a-kind circumstance, either. As our article demonstrates, many celebrities may earn upwards of a million dollars by selling their influence. Dwayne Johnson, an actor and former WWE wrestler, may make $1.5 million for such roles, while Ariana Grande, the most expensive woman on the list, joins five other women in the top 10.
