Hi, I’m Dylan…

…and I’m just a geeky ‘Gen Z-er’ with a passion for digital marketing and the power it holds to take small businesses to new heights!

My Story

My name is Dylan Swain and I am the founder of Mouse Potato Media. I’ve had a passion for digital media since a very young age. At 12 years old I was running my own YouTube channel where I made embarrassing comedy skits with my friends. This is where my passion for video production and digital media started.

In November 2016, I became the Social Media Manager at a local mortgage broker business, Specialised Mortgage Solutions. During this time I built them a website and social media profiles and through my digital marketing efforts I helped the company grow to become one of the largest mortgage broker companies in the Central West.

In September 2017 I decided to pursue my passion and started my own digital marketing agency, Mouse Potato Media. I wanted to use my skills to help local businesses owners grow their brands online and reach more potential customers.

When the COVID-19 pandemic occurred in 2020, I started working fulltime as a Marketing Officer, offering more security and stability. I still operate the business as a side hustle / passion project.

Today, as time is scarce working full-time, I only take on select projects where I believe I can provide immense value to the business owner and where I think we’d be a good fit. I still enjoy helping business owners from all over Australia grow their online presence through a range of different services including video production, web design, search engine optimisation, email marketing and social media marketing.

I absolutely love being able to help business owners from a wide range of industries help make a difference to more people’s lives through the power that is the internet and digital media.
