Darren has over 15 years’ experience of working online, having started his web career in the last century. His work on websites and affiliate networks in the 90s earned him the role of web designer at GAME, where he gained an important understanding of the needs of the client and the complexities of an industry-leading ecommerce website.
After leaving GAME, Darren worked for various digital agencies around the UK for clients such as Sony, the NHS, the Environment Agency and Manchester United (but don’t tell him we said that, he’s LFC all the way).
Over the years Darren has worked with pretty much every type of content management system available, and has developed many of his own – including the ‘Writers’ System’ we use here at Engage Web to manage our global network of writers. Darren’s experience of web hosting providers is extensive, having worked with many different companies over the years. The knowledge he has gained allows him to manage the many websites hosted by Engage Web for our clients on our own dedicated server.
It is within the field of search, online marketing and blogging where Darren has really found his passion, all of which fall under the banner of SEO (search engine optimisation). Darren formulates the SEO strategies Engage Web uses for each of our clients, which are then executed by our team.
Darren also has experience of speaking at conferences and giving seminars, and would welcome relevant speaking opportunities.
