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, and 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 

“I got into the business I am 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.

According to this article, 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 inc.com, 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, Neil 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…


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 is a typical video from Patel’s YouTube channel.



Neil Patel Net Worth 

As with many digital marketers, a common search query across search engines seems to be “Neil Patel Net Worth”.

One 2016 business2community.com article speculated that it was between 7-10 million dollars USD.

And in 2019 the ‘Angels And Entrpreneurs’ online info product Patel was involved with apparently alluded to his net worth being over 30 million.

However, overall we can find no exact information on this subject – and the two amounts listed above may not be accurate.
