An audience of over four million article views with high engagement and podcast listeners in over 160 countries is an incredibly humbling achievement. However, Neil is not motivated by numbers but enjoys involving his audience in a unique and meaningful way.
In December 2015, Executive Editor at LinkedIn Daniel Roth announced the top 10 writers who inspired new ideas and sparked conversations throughout tech, finance, venture, media and beyond. The list was measured by the engagement and influence from their users content and Neil was unveiled as the #2 technology writer of the year. The recognition is incredibly flattering and illustrates the value of building relationships through content and creating genuine conversations with your audience.
In 2016 Neil’s ghostwriting work enabled his client to also win a LinkedIn Top Voice award for written work around their industry too.
In this digital age, online readers are incredibly sophisticated and will instantly see through transparent attempts to create content designed to give the hard sell on products or services. Online material that has clearly been filled with keywords for the sole purpose of boosting SEO will also leave users rushing to close their browsing tab.
After seeing countless companies making these same mistakes, he created Tech Blog Writer Ltd to help businesses and individuals with online content that allows them to reap the benefits that useful articles and blog posts bring to their readers.
A simple ethos of providing valuable content that allows both businesses and individuals to build their own online community and even position themselves as a thought leader.
