You’ll Never Guess How Much Selena Gomez Makes Just From Social Media

Here's Selena Gomez's Secret to Getting Instagram Followers
Do you want to gain millions of Instagram followers?

It literally pays to be the most-followed person on Instagram.

Selena Gomez, who dethroned bestie Taylor Swift this year for the top honor, reportedly earns six-figures just from doing things that we plebes do for free. According to D’Marie Analytics, she rakes in approximately $550,000 for sharing selfies and posting across Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Estimated with a net worth of $45 million, Gomez also currently holds the title for the most-liked photo shared on Instagram. The photo — a sponsored shot for Coca-Cola with 4.6 million likes and counting — has beaten out ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber’s 3.7 million likes.

“It comes in a moment when I capture something happening, and I go, ‘Oh, that would be great for Instagram. I should post it.’ I know it’s boring, but that’s genuinely what I do,” Gomez recently told The Hollywood Reporter of her social media strategy. “I’m not sure there’s a method to my madness.”

Well, it also helps to have a photographer capture your every move. According to the “Hands to Myself” singer, she does have someone on staff who is documenting her current tour life.

“I try to find a good balance of just being 100 percent myself and knowing when to post a really good selfie with good lighting.”,” she said. “I’ve created this bond with him, so it’s super organic when he takes photos.”

Hey, it takes money to make money.
