Kim Kardashian made $50 million last year. One quarter of it came from sponsored Instagram messages.

Her 95 million followers may not realize it, but a fraction of her posts are ad campaigns. Brands have paid millions just so Kim will promote them on social media.

A digital marketing agent told Us Weekly, "The Kardashians only endorse what aligns with their lifestyle. 

Sponsored posts are about 25 percent of their income!" Two popular products the Kardashians push are waist trainers and weight-loss tea. 

Also, Yeezy fashion. So often they’re out in public wearing Kanye West’s designs. Subliminal advertising!

2009. Maybe 2008 I can't remember
