Cristiano Ronaldo has climbed to the forefront of Instagram’s yearly rich list of individuals who really can collect the highest money for a paid ad, well with footballer commanding quite so much as $1.6 million for promoting a brand just on social media site.
In a list that contains performer Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson as well as singer Ariana Grande, the Portuguese captain has indeed been succeeded to the throne of such influencers after causing a stir after removing Coca-Cola drinks to view during a post-match media briefing. This is the first time that footballer has topped the yearly rankings, which have been dominated with reality Television, movie, including music stars from the United States.
The anticipated price Ronaldo is charging for just a single sponsored post increased dramatically, effectively doubling to $889,000 in 2019. Ronaldo jumped from the third position to the first in 2019, passing Johnson, the current list-topper, with Kylie Jenner, the beauty entrepreneur turned celebrity, who was placed second.
The 36-year-Instagram old’s earnings are reported to be much more than $40 million per year, further than his income as just a player for Serie A team Juventus in Italy, and the salary price has risen in tandem to his following, which now has soared throughout the pandemic.
Ronaldo has more than 300 million followers on Instagram, has gained upwards of 125 million ever since the beginning of the year, more so than tripling his previous high of 100 million in 2017, when the very first “rich list” was published.
Ronaldo endorses anti-dandruff hair products company Clear on Instagram, which he advertises in sleek television-quality films alongside more amateur postings like “keeping a clear mind helps you to remain on top of the game.”
And over 550 million people follow him on social media, along with the major sites Twitter and Facebook.
“Well with Euros beginning earlier in the month including some few controversial promotional maneuvers throughout the last couple of days,” Mike Bandar, a co-founder of a website, which publishes the informal annual ranking of Instagram’s highest earners, said Ronaldo’s popularity has risen. “He reinforced the king of Instagram position just ago when he became the platform’s most-followed person.”
