If you’ve been online at all this year then chances are that you have come across the name “Liziqi.” The popular YouTuber has over 17 million subscribers on YouTube with another million on Instagram.
She is one of the most successful female creators in China who started out being sponsored by Xiaomi back in 2015 before moving to Baidu later that same year. Her success story took off when she appeared in Forbes’ list of top 10 highest-paid YouTubers worldwide in 2019, beating established names like Lilly Singh, PewDiePie, Tana Mongeau, and Rosanna Pansino.
So how did Liziqi get so wealthy so quickly? And what does her future hold? Here we will take a look at some interesting facts about Liziqi to help answer these questions.
How Did Liziqi Become Rich?
Born Li Jiajia on July sixth, 1990 in Pingwu County, Mianyang, Sichuan, China, she lost her father soon. When she was seven years old she enrolled into a local school.
Liziqi dropped from the school in 2004 and went to work as after the death of her grandfather her grandmother couldn’t afford to pay for the education. It wasn’t until 2015 that Liziqi found fame thanks to her popularity amongst kids through Meipai videos which eventually led to her now massive following on social media sites such as Weibo.
In 2017 she started posting videos on YouTube about her life in a Chinese village. Her videos quickly became popular throughout the world. In China she has built a loyal fan base throughout the years.
However, Liziqi isn’t completely free from criticism. Many people argue that she makes videos in a way that promote not China but its ruling party – the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Others claim that she uses quality village footage to create fake videos about her life. Many scholars have said that she is a “soft power” of the Chinese Communist Party.
What Is Liziqi Net Worth?
Now let’s talk about Liziqi’s net worth. Well, if you believe the numbers — and I do — then she is currently sitting on approximately $7 million dollars. As previously stated, Liziqi officially surpassed the coveted figure of $4 million in 2019, reaching the mark very quickly. Over time, she may even end up becoming even wealthier.
But why exactly Liziqi has so large net worth? Well, her wealth comes down to a few factors.
Firstly, she has received numerous brand partnerships throughout her career thus far which means she gets paid handsomely each time someone watches one of her clips.
Secondly, she rakes in additional income by selling products related to her shows and merchandise associated with her personal branding.
Finally, she has invested in real estate property in Shanghai, Hangzhou, Suzhou, and Hong Kong which further adds to her overall net worth.
How Liziqi Spends Her Money?
With her newfound fortune Liziqi can afford to spend whatever she wants. In fact, she told Time Magazine recently that she would probably give away half of her total earnings in order to avoid feeling guilty. While that seems like an admirable sentiment, it doesn’t necessarily mean that Liziqi actually follows through with her promise.
The majority of Liziqi’s discretionary spending goes toward buying expensive designer clothes. For example, she once purchased a pair of sneakers retailing at nearly RMB 20,000 yuan ($2,800). She has also spent large amounts of cash on branded handbags, sunglasses, and shoes. On occasion, she splurges on fast food and other snacks too.
Another way Liziqi likes to relax is by going shopping. Like most millennials, she loves browsing stores looking for potential purchases. Sometimes she’ll buy things purely just to support local businesses. Other times she’ll treat herself to pricey dinners or fancy drinks. What better way to enjoy yourself than with champagne?! If Liziqi happens to find something she really enjoys, she won’t stop at one purchase though. Instead, she tends to go overboard and buys everything within sight.
When asked whether she was happy with the amount of disposable income she earns, Liziqi said: “I am very satisfied with my current lifestyle. Money shouldn’t be able to define happiness. Everyone should follow their dreams no matter what they earn.”
- She weights 105 pounds (48 kg).
- Liziqi has almost 1 million followers on Instagram.
- In 2018 she has also started her food brand in China.
- She hasn’t been posting on YouTube for more than 10 months now.
- Looking forward, Liziqi hopes to continue growing her audience and building upon her reputation as an influential voice in youth culture. Although she has yet to venture beyond her native country, the internet allows her to connect with supporters wherever she travels. With luck, Liziqi will remain relevant long enough to become a household name in America while continuing to grow her wealth.
