New Zealand Business Directories
With the huge growth in internet usage, more and more Kiwis are going online to find the business services they are looking for. In fact, in 2016, 91% of New Zealanders were actively using the internet. And 70% spent more than 2 hours a day online.1 What this tallys out to, is if you are a business and you aren't online, you are missing out!
The good news is that there are many ways to get yourself online. The main option is to have your own website, and these are becoming more and more affordable. If you'd like to find out more about getting a website, call Kiwi Web Works on 0800 999 549.
If having your own website is a little cost prohibitive right now, then there's more good news. There are a number of really high quality online business directories that you can get your business listed on for free. These business directories are a great idea for all businesses, whether you have your own website or not.
