Real Madrid play maker Cristiano Ronaldo charges a staggering £308,000 (N149.4m) per sponsored post on Instagram and has over 116 million followers on the social media platform.
The only two celebrities ahead of Ronaldo are pop star and actress Selena Gomez on
£424,000 (N205.6m) per post and reality queen Kim Kardashian on £385,000 (N186.7m) per post. While Instagram may be a popular social media platform owned
by Facebook for photos and video sharing among friends and followers; it is also a goldmine tool used by a few.
The photo-sharing app is big business, especially when it comes to promoting products of brands by individuals with a
huge number of followers. All of which brings us to Cristiano Ronaldo of course.
So if you were wondering why the Real Madrid starman Instagram profile so often looks the way it does then it is usually for commercial reasons. And I always tell people, never, ever underestimate the power of adverts. That is why even till
today, Facebook, Google, Microsoft keep on advertising their products regardless on
how big they are.
