Kylie has knocked Selena off the top spot since last year! When charging up to a million dollars per Instagram post, you can see why she was recently named in Forbes’ list of America’s Richest Self-Made Women.
Hopper HQ Co-Founder Mike Bandar commented:
“Social media marketing has grown so much within the last year, and a tool that continues to yield results for brands is celebrity and influencer social endorsements. It’s truly amazing what influence these professionals have over their audience, and in terms of sales and exposure many of their clients claim that they’re worth every penny.”
“I’m not surprised that Kylie Jenner has topped this year’s list, as far as social media marketing goes, she has it down to a tee. Kylie was introduced to the public through her family’s reality show, but she has forged her own billion-dollar career and harnessed the power of Instagram to build a global, loyal, engaged following that brands are willing to pay top dollar for!”
