John Swinney is the MSP for Perthshire North and currently Deputy First Minister of Scotland and Cabinet Secretary for Education. Inspire were commissioned to create a fully compliant website to Scottish Parliament guidelines and conform to the EU Cookie Compliance Regulations. We worked with John's team to put together a dedicated MSP website package that was premised on being quick and simple to inform constituents and easy for the constituency office to update and manage ensuring that constituents are kept up to date.
What We Did
We created a bespoke but easy to use Content Management System. We incorporated a Press Releases page to enable site visitors to keep up to date with Mr Swinney's latest news and comments. We added a personal and political bio with useful contact forms throughout the website.
The Deputy First Minster was delighted with the website and visited our Perth Office to meet the team. He was impressed by the knowledge of the team and was fascinated by the thoroughness of the process. We provided full training on how to use the Content Management System to the constituency office and provide full support and maintenance service.
Unlike many web design or marketing agencies, we do not run automated software and send you out a long technical Website Review Report on what you or indeed your last developer have missed.
We recognise that the web is evolving at a tremendous pace, one real month is equal to one web year, so what was delivered just a few years ago, may very well be looking tired and dated.
At the two BNI Groups we are members of, we are fully signed up to Givers Gain and offer referral clients 20 minutes of our consultancy time (at no charge).
We cover a range of areas such as "What is the objective of your website?"; "What is your business model?"; "Who is your audience?"; then we can cover User eXperience; Usability; Site Analytics; Search Engine Optimisation (On-Site).
We know the value of both your and our time but we also know that we're keen to build relationships and this approach is the first building block in establishing that mutual trust and respect.
