The popularity of Pet Influencers is not limited to Singapore. For many countries around the world, such as the USA, Brazil, the UK, Russia, and Germany, pet influencers are also gaining popularity. The most popular pet influencer in 2021 is Jiff the Pomeranian (@jiffpom), followed by Nala Cat (@nala_cat), and Doug the Pug (@itsdougthepug). These famous pets have a starting income per job ranging from $10 to $2,500 or more. But the salary of each pet influencer depends on the post or the story they’re telling. There are many factors to consider including the number of followers they have on social media, engagement rate, and content production costs. According to the list of “Top 100 pet influencers by the number of followers,” surveyed by Hype Auditor, dogs remain the most popular pet influencers on social media, followed by cats, and other animals.
So, the take away from all of this is to start taking as many pictures of your pet as you can! Post them all on social media! Who knows, your paw buddy might be the next rising star!
