While the majority of us use Instagram to share pictures of food and tag our friend’s in memes, there are people using it for an altogether more prolific purpose: to make some serious cash. Yeah, it’s true.

While you wait for a like on a picture, or if you’re lucky, a follow back, some people use this platform as a serious (very serious) money-making business tool – getting paid more for one Instagram upload than we make in a month. Who knew an internet account could fund your whole life, and a luxurious one at that.

But, how do they manage to make so much money from a single post? 

Instagram has now become an effective marketing tool for various brands. One can not even imagine how much a celebrity’s post can increase profits of a brand and get them acknowledgement on social media. While some accept their online endorsements, there are a few who refrain from doing so. Well, because it’s just a product in hand with the slogan facing right way with the perfect lighting, sure – so what?

So the next time you like their post, you should know you made them earn a fortune.
