According to Pixlee, a US company that helps brands market and sell with real customer photos and videos, “A social media influencer is a user on social media who has established credibility in a specific industry. A social media influencer has access to a large audience and can persuade others by virtue of their authenticity and reach.” Despite that, some people think that the profession of “Social Media Influencer” is not really a job. On the contrary, it is quite the big (and profitable we might add) deal, especially for those who pursue influencer marketing on Instagram. The Digital Marketing Institute states, “Each influencer serves as an inspiration for business and brands on how to become reputable through Instagram, becoming an example of self-sustenance.”

Egypt is definitely not a stranger to the world of social media; as a matter of fact, we should get some sort of honorary award for most innovative memes produced in a day! While skimming through the 2019 Instagram Rich List on Hopper, a UK-based Instagram planner & scheduling tool that posts for thousands of customers in over 55 countries, we came across the one and only, Mohamed Salah. He came in 12th on the 2019 Instagram Rich Sports List, which is just one of the eight main categories, followed by the ninth, combined category, led by renowned American media personality and socialite, Kylie Jenner, with 139,226,677 followers and earnings of $1,266,000 per post! We’ll give you a minute for that to sink in. Salah has, let’s say, a more modest figure with 30,408,149 followers and $165,000 per post. Who were the 15 other remaining competitors you may ask? Let’s explore them.

Will there be more Egyptian personalities on the Rich List in the future? Well, Egyptian actors, Mena Massoud and Rami Malek, have 2 and 3 million followers respectively, but the lowest listed Hollywood celebrity is Demi Lovato at 72,858,509 people (according to Hopper’s top 26). So, it might take a bit of time to get there, but nothing is impossible! After all, Malek has 3 million followers already, and he has only posted three times since his first post back in August 2016! Let’s wait and see what happens.
