    Snack company Walkers Crisps has been given a harsh lesson in the dangers of opening up an advertising campaign to social media mischief-makers.

  • Who is the typical non-internet user?

    Posted on May 24, 2017

    How many times today have you used the internet? Did you log onto Facebook this morning? Did you send an email from work? Are you reading this article online now? We’re guessing so, unless someone printed it out and gave it to you! What if you had never used the web at all? It’s probably […]

  • Has the internet killed satire?

    Posted on November 25, 2016

    I love a good bit of satire. Whether it’s old episodes of Spitting Image, Aristophanes’ ‘The Frogs’ or a bit of the Daily Mash – nothing beats good satire. The problem is, does satire remain as satire when too many people believe it? For instance, the spoof news website BFN was originally set up with […]

  • So you think you don’t need a website?

    Posted on August 26, 2016

    Before I start this post, I must first apologise for the vitriol that is about to spew forth. John, our Content Team Leader, will have attempted to edit much of the hatred and anger from this but, if he’s caught all of it, the word count won’t be sufficient for a blog and you won’t […]

  • What happens online stays online

    Posted on March 11, 2016

    You may have heard the phrase ‘what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas’ at some point in your life. The phrase refers to Las Vegas, the gambling capital of the world, which is also known as Sin City. The notion that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas means that you’re guaranteed anonymity by the […]

  • What’s the number one reason friends hide you on Facebook?

    Posted on May 22, 2017

    It’s an inescapable fact that all of us who use social media can be very annoying. Whether it’s a political rant, a plea for sympathy or just something plain uninteresting, there’s probably always at least one of our friends or followers thinking “I wish he/she would shut up!” But if irritating the people who follow […]

  • We still have to Google with a capital ‘G’

    Posted on May 18, 2017

    In news that may give Google mixed feelings, it seems the company is not quite so synonymous with internet searches as to lose its trademark on the verb ‘to Google’. About two thirds of internet searches are conducted using Google, but this isn’t enough for the company’s name to become a generic term rather than […]

  • Brew Cards Infographic, updated rules

    Posted on October 22, 2014

    Two years ago we produced our first ‘brew cards’ infographic, to help explain the complex rules we have here at Engage Web for brew making in the office. Over time our rules have evolved and grown, partly to make the selection process more exciting and partly to counter for the rule-bending shown by our project […]

  • The growing importance of infographics

    Posted on August 30, 2013

    In a world saturated with adverts, stories and statistics, and with the internet only a mere click away, there is a real danger of consumers being overloaded – trawling through so much information can be monotonous. A well-designed infographic, however, can set companies apart from their competitors and should also enhance brand awareness. So many […]

Social media is such an important part of Internet marketing these days you need to take advantage of it to make […]
