The Forbes Magazine has termed Kim as the “tech entrepreneur.” She makes most of her revenues through different mobile ventures. Her popular game Kim Kardashian: Hollywood has generated $71.8 million alone in the year 2015. It is also estimated that Kim earns at least 40% of her money from this mobile game alone. This game requires the player to make some sensible decisions related to fashion, publicity as well as relationships. The game topped all the charts in Google as well as the Apple store. The players felt that they were “extremely addicted to the game.”
Apart from Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, Kim earns a lot of revenue through a series of emojis based on her as well as her personal app. These two are available for $1.99 and $2.99 respectively.
