Simon Swampy Marsh - New Blog

As council candidate for the Wellington Eastern ward, Simon “Swampy” Marsh had a clear message to deliver to his constituents. “It’s time for a new voice in council, a councillor who will listen to your ideas and be the voice. I want to be the voice because you deserve to be heard!”. To spread his message, “Swampy” moved into the online realm, through a website that incorporates a range of Social media tools. Expert’s brief was to provide a two way communication tool, between “Swampy” and his constituents. We recommended an online blog. This has given the general public a way to post comments on issues raised by Swampy.


The site also integrates with social media communities such as twitter, facebook, and linkedin to widen Swampy’s communication with the public. The Swampy Marsh site’s ”look and feel” has also been incorporated into The Swampy Marsh twitter page. This helps followers to be brought closer to Swampy’s message and voice.

To develop this site for Swampy, Expert designed and built it in MoST. By using MoST as his Content Management System (CMS), Swampy is able to post blogs and videos, run surveys of local constituents, and truly interact with the Eastern ward, and greater Wellington community.

The integration of social media into his site and campaign has helped Swampy bring his voice closer to the community. It has ensured that his representation of the Eastern Ward is in line with the thoughts and feelings of the community.

Swampy’s feedback:

"The team at Expert Developments have proven their capabilities again with our recent website development. They have just completed our second site and they make it look easy, helping us figure out the best way to move this campaign online. Our site is clean, uncluttered and simple to get around, just what we wanted. Do not bother even attempting to create your own site when you can use the team at Expert."
Regards Simon "Swampy" Marsh
