In 2004 we incorporated our company and built our first online portal directory website as our own business. Through this, we learned a lot about owning and running a successful web-based business. All SEO is self-taught over the years with excellent results. There was no need to use paid advertising. We expanded the business into Australia franchising into different locations. We’ve built a lot of standalone websites that are linked to the same admin area for quick and easy updating.
We’ve also built large portal directories in the age concern and youth services area.
More recently we’ve moved into building websites using Wordpress. Years ago we never liked Wordpress much, it was clunky and very hard to use. Not so today. With a ton of fantastic themes to choose from it enables us to build extremely modern functional websites that are much easier to update.
Throughout the years we’ve also designed a number of new logos with quality branding.
Our passion outside of work is walking and exploring our beautiful country - New Zealand. We decided to document all our walks for others to experience for themselves for free. You can see a couple of hundred walks, hikes and bike rides on our website www.freewalks.nz - Enjoy!
Because we have a lot of experience running our own successful web businesses we can offer new and existing clients a different set of skills to most other web design companies. We can build better websites to fit your business especially in the areas of tour bookings and selling online.
We are also an Official Partner of Weka Online.
