Neil Patel net worth, bio, wiki, and more.

Overview Of Neil Patel

Neil Patel’s name is very much synonymous with “digital marketing” in today’s online landscape. 

He is the co-founder of a number of online businesses and software companies, namely KISSmetrics, Crazy Egg, Hello Bar, QuickSprout, NP Digital, and Subscribers. He is also responsible for the creation of the free keyword tool Ubersuggest.

He is, however, mostly known for educating digital marketers on how to drive more traffic and grow their online businesses via his very popular blog at neilpatel.com, as well as his YouTube channel.

This post will serve as a breakdown of Neil Patel’s bio, videos, online interviews, and content marketing blog posts. 

 

Neil Patel Bio, Background 

Neil Patel’s early forays into digital marketing were- apparently- not marked by great success.

“I got into the business I am in right now because I thought when you put up a website, people just come to the website, and it magically becomes popular,” Neil said in an episode of the Growth Everywhere podcast

Patel explains that this belief was quickly dashed, and it was his response to that which sent him on the digital marketing ‘journey’ he has been on ever since.

Watch the whole interview below:

 

According to this article from Inc.com, Neil Patel was born in London in 1985, before his family relocated to California.

His parents were first-generation immigrants.

His father initially worked for one of his uncles, and his mother walked to a teaching job each day until she was able to eventually start her own daycare business.

According to same inc.com article, Neil Patel began his marketing journey in 2001- at age 16- when he came up with his first website and tried to get paid assistance from a few marketing firms to help expand it. After getting duped, he resolved to learn marketing on his own.

Since then, Patel has achieved tremendous success in the world of online commerce, and a quick glance at his career and ubiquitous presence in the world of digital marketing clearly demonstrates this. 

Here is how he now describes himself:

“I am a New York Times bestselling author. The Wall Street Journal calls me a top influencer on the web, Forbes says I am one of the top 10 marketers, and Entrepreneur Magazine says I created one of the 100 most brilliant companies. I was recognized as a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 30 by President Obama and a top 100 entrepreneur under the age of 35 by the United Nations.

I’ve helped Amazon, Microsoft, Airbnb, Google, Thomson Reuters, Viacom, NBC, Intuit, Zappos, American Greetings, General Motors, and SalesForce grow through marketing.

My marketing blog generates over 3 million visitors per month (51% of them spend money on paid ads), my Marketing School podcast generates over 1 million listens per month, my YouTube channel about marketing has over 20 million views and half a million subscribers…

Neil Patel’s Companies

Neil Patel has co-founded several online businesses. A general overview of his most notable companies is given below.

 

KISSmetrics

KISSmetrics is intended to provide website owners with in-depth insight into customer behavior. KISSmetrics can:

  • Show how customers are using products.
  • Show conversion rates of users who didn’t bounce.
  • Show customer acquisition channels.
  • Track acquisition funnels.
  • Help entrepreneurs understand the lifetime value of their customers.

 

Crazy Egg

Crazy Egg is an analytics tool that visually shows how visitors interact with a website. Via snapshots, heat maps, recordings, and scroll maps, Crazy Egg displays where visitors are coming from, where they navigate, and where they direct their attention.

Based on this data, Crazy Egg then allows website owners to make changes to their web pages and perform A/B testing to identify the most effective website layout.

 

Hello Bar

Hello Bar permits website owners to create popup bars on their web pages to grab the attention of visitors. Some of the features of Hello Bar include:

  • Bar customization, ranging from button size and shape to font style.
  • Unlimited number of popups (except for the free plan where their number is limited to 10).
  • Targeting based on the device, date, and the web page where the visitor is located.
  • A/B testing.
  • Integration with email marketing platforms, analytics tools, and more through Zapier.

 

NP Digital

NP Digital is a marketing agency providing the following services:

  • Paid search marketing and social media marketing to help brands efficiently promote their businesses.

NP Digital has offices in a number of countries, including the US, Australia, Brazil, and India.

 

Ubersuggest

Providing insight into keyword difficulty, monthly search volumes, and top ranking domains, Ubersuggest is primarily a keyword research tool.

However, in addition to keyword research, Ubersuggest allows website owners to review their own and competitors’ back link profiles, as well as identify pages that are ranking high and are popular on social media websites.

 

Books

In 2016, Neil Patel co-authored the book Hustle: The Power to Charge Your Life with Money, Meaning, and Momentum which went on to become a New York Times bestseller. 

Here’s an excerpt from the book’s description on Amazon:

In Hustle, Neil Patel, Patrick Vlaskovits, and Jonas Koffler—three of the nation’s top entrepreneurs and consultants—have teamed up to teach you how to look at work and life through a new lens—one based on discovering projects you enjoy and the people and opportunities that support your talents, growth, income, and happiness.

The book essentially aims to help readers to change their attitude toward work and money-making.
