New website for Guernsey Liberation Day 2021
Submarine has worked with Oliver Tracey, Marketing Officer and Nikki Symons, Head of Marketing and Events both of Sport and Culture, States of Guernsey to bring the island a new website experience in support of Liberation Day in 2021. The new website gives details of proposed events and activities*, as well as the history of the German Occupation during World War II, and of course the islands liberation on 9 May 1945.
The website is designed to be responsive, built efficiently to work well in a 'real time' situation delivered to an audience with mobile devices. This is especially important leading up to the main events when people will be out and about joining in but it is also effective in addressing the increasing use of mobile devices on the island - conservatively estimated to be 60+ % of local social media traffic in 2020.
Key deliverables in order to ensure a great weekend are the activity programme of course and encouragement for people to get involved, as this really is an interactive community event for the people, by the people. Sponsorship is also key part of funding and so these three items in particular are promoted across the site and available on every screen through a 'sticky' header bar which remains, even as you scroll the page.
Further support is also provided within the advanced content management tool set for promotion via social media and the internet - meta tags, open-graph, landing page creation, tracking are all provided for within the application. This is largely managed by SoG staff saving both time and money on outsourcing.
The Liberation Day event has a rich history and many media assets are provided for in the Look-Back and Gallery sections of the website including video. This allow visitors to enjoy the nostalgia of previous years before and after the event. The gallery will be updated regularly during this years events, and once again we encourage amateur enthusiasts and professionals alike to get involved with the Sports and Culture staff.
Clearly this year as these strange times continue, the public events are still subject to change, dependent on the island COVID situation. However, the team remain positive in their plans for a Summer event and we believe that everyone will have even more reason to celebrate their freedom following this second lockdown.
