While the vast majority of us use Instagram to post a few holiday pics, many celebrities make a fortune from the social media app.
How life could be so different, eh?
No, as this crown now belongs to former Manchester United and Real Madrid footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, who is currently applying his trade in Saudi Arabia with Al Nassr.
The 38-year-old footballer pockets a whopping $2.4 million per sponsored post, way ahead of Kylie's $1.9 million.
Ronaldo has brought a lot of that in through promoting health and wellness brand Therabody, cryptocurrency exchange Binance and sports website LiveScore on his account.
The reason as to why the football star rakes in so much per sponsored post is a pretty obvious one, he is the most followed person on Instagram.
Boasting a whopping 597 million Instagram followers, Ronaldo is ahead of the likes of fellow football star Lionel Messi, singer Selena Gomez and beauty mogul Kylie.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has made much of her money from sponsored posts by promoting fashion giant Jean Paul Gaultier, alongside some of her own brands including Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Swim.
Kylie's dropping in the rankings comes after she admitted that the Kardashian family had a responsibility to young women who saw their posts.
In the latest episode of The Kardashians, the 25-year-old said: “I just feel like we have huge influence and like what are we doing with that power?”
“I just see so many young girls on the internet now fully editing [their pictures]. Like, the editing!
"I went through that stage, too. I feel like I’m in a better place but other people can instil insecurities in you."
As for the rest of the highest earners on Instagram, as per The Sun, Lionel Messi sits in third place taking $1.7 million per post for advertising the likes of Adidas and Budweiser.
Selena Gomez is fourth on the list, followed by Dwayne Johnson in fifth place.
Meanwhile, fellow Kardashians are also in the top ten - with Kim in sixth and Khloe the ninth biggest earner on the social media app.
