From photography enthusiasts to influencers, everyone loves Instagram. Its reach and popularity mean that famous names with huge followings can easily use the platform to earn money. And that’s why many of the highest-earning celebrities on Instagram in 2022 are making millions of dollars per post.

UK-based Hopper HQ, an Instagram planning and scheduling tool, has released its Instagram Rich List every year since 2017. According to Hopper HQ, the 2022 list has more women at the top of the chart with 67% compared to 56% l ‘last year.

With several new features on Instagram being introduced through 2022, it is expected that creators on the platform will be able to earn more than they currently do. This also means that celebrities, depending on their influence in the market, could also see an increase in their income from Instagram.

Hopper HQ compiled the list using its internal data, publicly available information, and agency rates. Celebrity earnings are what they charge per sponsored post.
