These Insta-Famous Pets Bank More $$$ Than You & They Don’t Have Hands

Instagram has become quite the platform for marketers over the last few years, meaning anyone with more than 20k followers can make some decent money with their posts.

These influencers can make full-blown careers out of endorsing products that their hungry followers will eat up, giving them a piece of that sweet, sweet advertising money. 
And it’s not just humans dipping themselves into giant pots of money, pets are getting into the trend too, raking in absurd amounts of money with every adorable post they make. 
Of course, they don’t actually make the posts themselves. They don’t have hands. In fact, I’d argue that they have no idea what’s going on, but the bottom line is, they’re money-making machines. 
I know what you’re thinking. What could a dog possibly market that’s worth that much money? When you consider pet parents in the US alone spent $US62.5 billion in 2016, the answer becomes pretty clear. 
According to Market Watch, a dog with 20k followers can make about $US200 per post. Between 150k and 250k followers will rake in about $US3,000 per post and anything over a million followers can make about $US10,000 per post.
