We are aware that there are other sites set up for communities to learn about their local candidates and policies, so we wish to ensure Neighbourly remains accessible for the purposes it was created during this time.
As you'd expect, candidates are not allowed to campaign from their personal profile. This is limited to advertising on the site. However, once elected, Councillors can use a free Neighbourly organisational listing to share information directly with their community.
Therefore, as a candidate in the 2019 local body elections, we advise to take out some paid advertising on the site to be able to get your face and name out there as well as sharing some information about your campaign. The Neighbourly team can put you in touch with someone who can help with this.
If you don't think you'll need help advertising and interacting on the site, you could consider using a Premium Business listing which you could manage yourself. Our 3 month subscription is the best option to cover your campaign period up until the elections.
Pricing for this is as follows:
3 Months - $149.00 + gst (works out to be $49.67 a month)
