My name is Neil C. Hughes, and I’m a tech columnist, published author, ghostwriter, and podcaster for hire, also known as the tech blog writer. In 2015, I was named one of the “Top 9 Influential Tech Leaders on LinkedIn” by CIO Magazine. However, my journey began when I won a “LinkedIn Top Voice Award” for being the #2 technology writer of 2015 on the entire LinkedIn platform. In 2016, I helped a client win a LinkedIn Top Voice Award in their industry through ghostwritten content. Welcome to the bittersweet world of a tech ghostwriter.
When exploring how I could better engage with my readers and bring my written content to life, I launched the Tech Talks Daily Podcast, which went on to be featured by Forbes in their 15 Inspiring Podcasts For Professionals Of Every Stripe list.
The show evolved into The Tech Talks Daily Podcast, and I have now interviewed over 2,300 tech leaders, entrepreneurs, CEOs, thought leaders, and even the occasional celebrity about how technology is transforming their business. My daily tech podcast has enabled me to speak with eclectic guests. As the digital transformation of everything gathers pace, I have also recorded interviews with tech giants such as Adobe, Microsoft, Sony, Adobe, and IBM.
I have learned how technology is also affecting sports and entertainment after enjoying conversations with Real Madrid, Manchester United, McClaren, BBC America, and Fender digital. I have also been incredibly fortunate to interview TV talk show host Wendy Williams, Star Trek’s William Shatner, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Guy Kawasaki about their use of technology on my podcast.
Tech Talks Daily has also taken me everywhere, from Armenia to Arizona. I can be found interviewing leaders and businesses at tech events across the globe. I currently record ten podcast interviews weekly and have guests booked for the next six weeks. These are great problems to have, and I genuinely enjoy talking to a diverse range of guests, from some of the most exciting new tech start-ups to the biggest tech behemoths and thought leaders in the world.
The most common question I get asked by PR companies is, “What Is Your Social Reach?” In a world where many will buy fake followers or fans, I am highly suspicious of metrics based on follower counts alone. I prefer to focus on building relationships and engaging with my audience by making them a part of the podcast. However, according to Listen Notes, Tech Talks Daily is currently globally ranked in the top 1% out of the 5 million podcasts worldwide. You can find more information by clicking the image below.
Since July 2015, I have interviewed more than 2,800 guests, and here are a few more stats about the Tech Talks Daily Podcast and this website, where every episode has its own blog post promoted across my social channels.
My biggest online following on social media is on LinkedIn and Twitter. I am particularly proud of the engaged community I have built with my audience through online and written content, with over 5 million article views and over 3 million podcast downloads.
Guests from every industry educate listeners by sharing their road to success, startup stories, and how technology transformed their businesses and lives. The audience consists of people from a wide variety of backgrounds who are united by wanting to learn more about how technology is transforming their work, industry, life, and even the world.
So business leaders, decision-makers, IT and office workers passionate about tech, and startup founders in 165 countries are interested in hearing stories about how tech solves real-world problems and how this could work in their businesses. The US is the biggest country listening, but the rest of the audience is scattered worldwide. Please contact me if you are interested in sponsoring Tech Talks Daily.
Join me for daily optimism and motivation as I prove that technology works best when it brings people together.
I also host and produce two other podcasts when not recording Tech Talks Daily. Combining two technologies can often be cumbersome. In the Tech Fusion podcast, I teamed up with Citrix to interview technology companies on the latest tech they’ve developed and their integration with Citrix.
If you are a tech enthusiast looking for how Citrix technology alliances have solved industry challenges and empowered people to unlock their full potential, this podcast is for you. On the podcast, I have interviewed Wacom, AMD, Microsoft, Fujitsu, and NVIDIA to learn how they are working alongside Citrix to build a new future of work.
On the Switched On Thinking, I hosted and produced a podcast with NETGEAR. On the show, I interviewed leaders from NETGEAR and its key partners. The podcast delivers an insightful and informative analysis of networking technology’s key role in driving business success and ensuring business continuity during times of uncertainty.
The show covers various topics, including how SMB Networking will evolve moving forward, what the home office will look like in years to come, how to improve productivity, the versatility of PoE, and how Cloud Managed Networks can be a real asset when growing your business.
If you want to launch your podcast but don’t want the hassle of editing audio files and setting up RSS feeds, I can help too. My Podcasting Made Simple service will get you up and running with 12 podcast episodes edited and published across Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and all the major podcasting platforms.
Are you looking to increase the reach or credibility of your brand or business? Do you want the book to open doors for more speaking engagements but don’t have time to create content? I also offer a wide range of services to help anyone create content at scale. I take away the hassle and turn your ideas into ghostwritten thought-leadership blogs and articles for you to share across multiple platforms.
To launch your podcast, you only need to record a conversation on Zoom, Teams, or in person and leave the rest to me.
Do you also need a ghostwriter to help your clients with tech thought leadership articles or blogs or help launch a podcast without the hassle? Please contact me.
