Case Study: Brendan O’Hara MP

A challenging import from an existing WordPress site, a large cleanup of underlying database tables, categories and structure.

Brendan O’Hara MP

Another SNP site based on a custom WordPress theme but, this time, there was an import from a very large existing WordPress site to be undertaken before anything else. This involved a site clone process, and a long cleanup of underlying database tables, categories and structure.

Properly GDPR compliant in terms of data usage, tracking and cookies, it features Mailchimp Newsletter integration, RSS data feeds, embedded Social Media feeds, and multimedia rich posts.

The Editor login dashboard has been reworked to be simple and clear, with customised user permissions and built-in help menus with tailor-made ‘how to’ videos for Brendan’s team.

I needed someone professional, skilled, capable and trustworthy to manage and grow an increasingly interactive audience to leave staff free to concentrate on other tasks, and Mat filled that role perfectly.

Embedded Social Media

As an MP with a large rural constituency, communication with constituents is very important. The nature of my job means I spend a lot of my time in Parliament and it’s vital that I can share information about the work I am doing there.
My website is the main platform for engaging with my constituents about my work in the constituency and in Parliament so it’s vital I have a site that’s easy to use and has a reader-friendly format.

With Mat’s help, I have been able to post video, clips of my speeches and any newsworthy items on my website in a matter of minutes. Mat also sees to all the work in the background, so I don’t need to worry about security or backups and if I, or my staff, need any help Mat is always there to provide assistance.
His calm, professional manner is reassuring and his on-going support means everything is taken care of.
