Although Martha did not reveal the exact figure she charges for branded content, it’s estimated she makes up to $3,000 for a single sponsored selfie. 

‘I’m a beauty influencer who probably makes your yearly wage in a month. So, you should probably take some notes because this is not a fluke,’ she said. 

Martha and Michael are one of the few Married At First Sight success stories, having met on the show back in 2019.
