  • The messy and short-lived story of OWNAFC

    Posted on March 20, 2019

    On February 28, an article on BBC Sport featured an exclusive interview with an upbeat Stuart Harvey, founder of OWNAFC.

  • How much should a website cost?

    Posted on March 19, 2019

  • Enjoy matchday hospitality at Anfield with Engage Web

    Posted on March 13, 2019

    There are those who say you should never mix business with pleasure but, at Engage Web, we don’t believe that at all. That’s probably because the vast majority of our work is a pleasure, especially when you’re designing websites, writing blogs about holidays or cars, making videos and managing social media. It’s hardly manual labour, […]

  • 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 […]

    Posted on January 23, 2019

    Who remembers the Yellow Pages directory being the size of a small family car? With the first issue being distributed to UK homes more than 50 years ago, the business phone book known as Yellow Pages used to be a substantial piece of

  • Three search terms that peak in January

    Posted on January 15, 2019

    Once Christmas and New Year have come and gone, January can feel like a month where not a lot happens. Clearly, though, there are certain subjects on our minds at this time of year, and a look at Google Trends suggests that some industries should be aware of what’s going on in the world of […]

  • 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.

    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.
