Nice lit­tle earner for Ron­aldo and co

The Irish Times - - Soccer -

Did you ever won­der how much celebs got paid for plug­ging prod­ucts on their so­cial me­dia ac­counts? No? Well, we’re go­ing to tell you any­way now that the fig­ures have been re­vealed by the Buzz Bingo peo­ple – pre­pare for your eyes to wa­ter.

Cris­tiano Ron­aldo, Lionel Messi, David Beck­ham, Ney­mar and Zla­tan Ibrahi­movic, in that or­der, are the foot­ball folk who earn the most loot from spon­sored In­sta­gram posts, Ron­aldo – make sure you’re sit­ting com­fort­ably – pick­ing up just over ¤900,000 for each (each!) of the 49 prod­ucts he plugged to his 186 mil­lion fol­low­ers – all of which earned him more than ¤44 mil­lion.

Poor old Messi only made ¤22 mil­lion and Zla­tan’s haul was mere loose change, pick­ing up un­der ¤4 mil­lion.

If your young one or young fella ask what they should be when they grow up, tell them to aim for be­ing “in­flu­encers”.
