Morris, 26, and Bullen, 24, have a mixed 3.4 million adherents on their two personal Instagram accountings. They assembled on a chore in Fiji last year after both left their respective jobs to focus on Instagramming for a living, according to a January profile in Cosmopolitan UK.The duo, who are based in Bali, share dazing photos of their world escapades on their respective reports, and get paid by labels and tourist boards for sponsored images.
Its working: Theyre seeing six-figure payments, despite apparently being told their proportions areso low.
Exact fleshes are hard to say because every profession is different, but we wont do a post for less than $3,000, Morris told Cosmo.The most Ive personally went for one pole is $9,000 … I did a job for a phone company where I moved out for three days; there were two days filming and then I had to do five photos on Instagram, and that was $35,000.
Being paid thousands of dollars to post a single photo may seem shocking to most, but Morris tries to give it into perspective.
Once[ industries] compare counts to magazine readership sizes or Tv circular views[ and] take into consideration our personal force, they are aware of more, he told The Huffington Post via email. I conclude all influencers charge differently and even though follower size is taken into consideration, its not based solely on that. Quotes are also based on booking, excellence of the information contained, demographics, etc.
While their lives may look like a dream, they say it requires more labour than matches the eye and Instagram only captures a small snippet. The two dont use any apps to digitally adapt their photos, expending Adobe Lightroom instead.
As for their primary tip for other Instagram influencer hopefuls? Keep it real.
The biggest[ admonition] marriage give is to be authentic, original and do what the hell are you enjoy, Morris told HuffPost. If you want to stand out you need to have a degree of gap. Dont do things for the wrong reasonableness such as a paycheck or reputation. Both[ Lauren and I] jaunted and caused content for years with no business scheme. It was always just for fun, and even though its our full-time responsibility now, its still evenly as enjoyable. I think thats the reason our positions and life resonates with so many people.
