About Me

Neil Patel - www.neilpatel.co

HELLO

By 2020, 50% of all search queries will be made by voice. The way we interact with the internet is changing fast. As you navigate this rapidly evolving environment, I will provide a helping hand by supplying the following services:

I enjoy collaborating with developers, designers and users in order to make the best possible product. I am a technical & creative problem solver based in the United Kingdom. Passionate about building the next big thing using Human-Centered Design, with deep understanding and empathy for users, I have launched successful products and features on multiple platforms.

I can help you understand the product development process: user stories, personas, emotional design, simplicity, usability and testing.

Voice applications are still new. So the first time you build a voice app, you have to be realistic. It may require additional iterations, time, testing and feedback to add value to the customer and your bottom line.

The good news is: 58 million smart speakers will be sold in 2018. And 75% of US households are expected to have smart speakers by 2020. So you can see the awesome opportunities out there in any industry. I can provide you with research, insight, creativity, production and deployment to bring your idea to life!
