The 2020 Instagram Rich List — Who Earns The Most From Sponsored Instagram Posts?

The Instagram Rich List is back for the fourth year running…

For the first time in the list’s history there has been a drop in fees for influencers on Instagram, even among the highest earners, as marketers and brands have reduced influencer budgets due to the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.

What’s more, this is the first year that a Kardashian or Jenner hasn’t taken the top spot, following controversy regarding Kylie Jenner’s billionaire status earlier this year.

Just as we did in 2017, 2018 and 2019, Hopper HQ have produced the official:
