Zeald sponsored story: Online business is anywhere

“Globally there’s no company, there’s no person, there’s nobody that can’t have a look at who we are” - Annah Stretton, New Zealand fashion designer and Zeald client.

A website is a sales and marketing tool that exists to serve a purpose. For thousands of businesses this purpose is to generate a result: more sales, more leads; more money.

If you are not being found online, then you are losing money to those who are. Use of the Internet in New Zealand has continued to rise with 95 percent of online shoppers searching the web for product information, price comparisons and peer reviews before making a purchase online and over 65 percent of in-store purchases are initiated on the web. (PwC and Frost and Sullivan, Digital Media Research, 2011.)

1.9 million New Zealanders are now buying online and will spend on average $1,659 online in 2012 and this is expected to grow by 14.9 percent compound per annum for the next 4 years. (PwC and Frost and Sullivan, Digital Media Research, July 2012.)

Make sure you are being found online, compare to your competitors and improve your results!
