Success in the Entertainment Industry
Many people often wonder how Deyes is so rich? But, the truth is, Deyes started from very humble beginnings and took his time to reach stardom. He created his channel “PointlessBlog” back in 2009, and for the first couple of years, he got around 1,000 views on his videos.
As the years passed, his success grew rapidly, and in 2016, he was at 5.5 million subscribers, with 480+ million views in total. He won fans over with amazing content and fun, relatable vlogs people could enjoy.
Soon, he opened new channels, and PointlessBlogVlogs reached a staggering 4.1 million subscribers and 880+ million views in total. Now he earns $24k from the second channel “Alfie Deyes” annually, almost $95k from the main channel, and around $4k from “PointlessBlogGames” yearly from ads on his videos. (This doesn’t include brand deals).
Most of his revenue came from vlogs and social media. He has around 4 million Instagram followers and 3.2 million on Twitter, which have paved the way for more opportunities and better deals.
But, his success didn’t end here, at the end of 2013, he popped up on Yahoo! News as one of the top 12 entrepreneurs to watch. A month later, he was on the cover of Company magazine. To add more to his revenue, Deyes published a book titled “The Pointless Book.” Even though it was heavily criticized for its pointless content, the book still got immense attention and opened the way for the second book, “The Pointless Book 2,” to be released the next year in 2015. It was the bestselling book in the non-fiction genre in the UK.
As an influential role model, Alfie Deyes participated in multiple campaigns for health issues and bullying to spread awareness and help people overcome various difficulties.

Deyes stated he is very conservative with his spending and would like to be better equipped for progressing in his career, so he decides to invest.
