The amount of money the Kardashians are paid for one sponsored Instagram post is bananas

While most of us use Instagram to look at bizarre memes and share photos of our vacations and selfies, the Kardashians use it to rake in millions. MILLIONS. Sure, we were already aware that this was happening, but we have to admit we didn’t realize just how much money they were making. Are you ready? No, really, are you ready?

Kim Kardashian can make $500,000 for ONE Instagram campaign. One! WHATTTTTTT.

Michael Heller, who works with the Kardashians as the CEO of digital marketing firm Talent Resources, recently told US Weekly that sponsored Insta posts account for 25 percent of their income. Omg.

My aces. Can you have two aces?! Well lucky me, I do.

Kim, Heller says, tends to stick with products that she has a stake in, such as her Kimojis, but if you scroll through her Instagram you can find her also promoting luxurious brands as well as body-shaping products to her 95.1 million followers.

Here’s Kim advertising for a private jet company:

And for a waist shaper:

Khloe and Kourtney don’t make as much as Kim, unsurprisingly, as they have less followers — Khloe has 64.3 million and Kourtney has 54.5 — but they still do okay. The younger and elder Kardashian sisters can make up to $250,000 for a campaign.

Khloe, whose brand, as we know, is health and fitness, promotes products such as protein shakes:

She also advertises for her clothing line, Good American, and her Koko cosmetics collection, which sells through younger sister Kylie’s make-up brand.

While Kourtney seems to go the beauty route — seen here selling a body creme:

And sunglasses (as well as an anti-bullying campaign):

Heller tells US Weekly, “They only endorse what aligns with their lifestyle. They turn a lot down.” Hmm. Very interesting. Makes sense.

So, we would not advise looking at your bank account after reading this post.
