Zoella: Net Worth & Salary Breakdown
Beauty Blog and Early Start on YouTube
Zoella has been many things in her life: blogger, vlogger, YouTuber, entrepreneur, author; and the fact that she is a veritable millionaire is a testament to her success in everything she attempts.
Zoe started as an intern at an interior design firm before starting a beauty and lifestyle blog in February 2009 under the name “Zoella”.
The blog started accruing a steady following over the course of many years but as her internet presence grew, the views on her blog also skyrocketed.
Zoe went from writing about her life to playing it out on camera. She ventured into the realms of YouTube in 2009 and not only started talking about fashion trends but started video blogging (vlogging) about her life.
Through a combination of smarts, beauty, and dedication, Zoella became one of the most influential internet personalities in the UK.
In September 2014, capitalizing on her growing influence on the internet, Zoella launched a range of beauty products called Zoella Beauty. She also took over ownership of ZS Beauty Ltd., a UK-based perfume and cosmetics wholesale retailer in 2016.
In September later that year, she also collaborated with the UK-based beauty and healthcare chain, Boots, to launch her line of homeware products — which has since been distributed by many national retail chains since. The line was discontinued in 2020, but not before earning her a reported £3.8 million ($4.7 million) by the end of 2019.
Zoella has also authored three books to date. Her debut novel, Girl Online, dropped on November 25, 2014, and sold 78,109 copies — setting the record for the fastest first-week sales of a book by a debut author.
Her two subsequent books, titled Girl Online: On Tour and Girl Online: Going Solo were released on October 20, 2015, and November 17, 2016, respectively.
Social Media Earnings
In a 2019 year-end survey by Metro UK, it was revealed that Zoella earned a combined £600,000 ($750,000) yearly from her two lifestyle channels on YouTube.
The same report also noted that she made as high as £12,000 ($15,000) for a sponsored Instagram post.
In June 2017, Zoella and her boyfriend, Alfie Deyes, moved into a £1.7 million ($2.14 million) house in Brighton, East Sussex, England.
