Hello and thanks for dropping in.

internet marketing and web designMy name is Bruce Gibson, CEO of Online New Zealand, one of New Zealand's premium Internet Marketing Companies. We currently have offices in Auckland, Hawkes Bay, Wellington, Marlborough and I am now here in Christchurch to assist local businesses generate more internet traffic to their websites.

I have been involved in Business Marketing for almost forty years having run several successful retail businesses as well during that time. My current position of Graphic and Website Designer, Search Engine Optimisation and Internet Marketing Specialist has evolved over the past 15 years and I always try to keep up with the latest trends in Search Engine Marketing (SEM).

I am now able to offer my valuable website development and promotion services to small to medium sized businesses here in Canterbury. If you are after an Internet Expert, I can help you expand and develop your online side of your business easily and cost effectively. Online NZ is well respected by the major search engines and our own site now generates over one million visits each year. There are very few other businesses of our nature that can generate this great amount of traffic for themselves, let alone for their clients.

double website trafficWe have a unique Marketing Plan that we use to assist our clients in getting their own website found more easily.
We have created a unique "association", so each of our clients enjoy our very high pedigree and therefor their websites inherit the high respect Online NZ has earned. I have been able to help hundreds of businesses with their online development both overseas and here in New Zealand. You can view some of our success stories here.

Online NZ specialise in:


 I have a passionate love of the Internet Technology and enjoy the challenges that the 21st Century Technology offers.
A business in the 21st Century now has no excuse for not being online, given that over 80% of your customers are now looking for your business online. Failure to compete by not having your business well featured online in this day and age could well see the demise of your operation as your competitors gobble up your share of the local market.

The hardest part of website development now is knowing that your website developer is really going to get your business easily found. Sadly, MOST "web developers" do not have a clue how to promote your website. In addition most make the most basic of errors that will even get your website penalised by the search engines. With Google's 400 or more rule changes in the past year, it has become even harder to get your website at the front amongst the 800 million other websites out there. Over 90% websites have "glaring faults" that are costing the owners valuable business. Don't take my word for it .. Have a look here: WEBSITE ANALYSER .. type your url in the search bar and look at the results. Now do the same with several of your competitors. Are you getting your fair share of the business? If you are not, please contact me. I can generally have your website out-perform most of your competitors without costing you a fortune (:
You can also easily identify website faults here. Call us if you want to discuss your findings and let us find some effective ways to improve your "site score".

internet marketing help me fix my website

I liken the internet to a HUGE highway. Along the edge of the highway, there is a huge forest. 95% of websites are now hidden in the forest so they really aren't that easy to find.
Online NZ build our client's websites visibly (correctly optimised for search engines) on the "internet Highway". In addition, we even build a nice path (internet marketing programme) for people to find your website more easily. last but not least, we place a large attractive sign outside ("keyword" strategies of the phrases that tell viewers what you have inside)  to welcome your visitors.

Our Services include:


Online NZ is a NZ privately owned Company with branches in Auckland, Wellington, Marlborough and Christchurch and still growing. We specialise in developing and expanding our client’s online side of their business.

Online NZ specialises in:

Over the past few years we have seen dramatic changes in the way the major search engines direct traffic to websites.
They have become more “human” in an attempt to predict more precisely what it is that a viewer is trying to find.
This has meant that the old days of merely stuffing a website with keywords no longer gives the same results.
They have integrated many more rules (algarythms) which have penalised most websites so they no longer enjoy the amount of “free traffic” they used to.

To explain this more simply, imagine the Internet as a highway. Along the edge of this highway is a large row of trees. Most  websites are now hidden behind this row of trees so traffic merely passes them by without seeing them.
Online NZ design modern websites so they are built directly on this highway, away from the rows of trees.
(we call these sites “optimised”)
We then place a large sign beside this business and build an attractive pathway to it. (we call this “Internet Marketing”)

We are able to do this by creating an “association” with OnlineNZ as we incorporate our client’s site into our own Internet Marketing System that has been developed over the past five years. In most cases, it is not expensive and usually costs around $10 per week and this system alone is GUARANTEED to double your existing traffic, in addition to increasing your world wide popularity (Alexa Rank).
In most cases our client’s return great results, often on the first page of google for their targeted keywords or phrases. Most SEO companies will charge many thousands of dollars and merely deliver the same results, some even less.
To survive business in the 21st century, you must dedicate a lot more time and effort in developing and marketing the online side of your business or you will be driven out by your competitors over time.

MOST “web designers/developers” think they know how to build your website on the “highway”, but they don’t!
Even less of them know how to cost effectively build a path to your business and place signs directing your potential clients to your door. In most cases I relate it to having expensive signwriting done on your motor vehicle and then locking it in your garage ... or building a new shop and forgetting to put doors and windows on it.

Online NZ can achieve outstanding results because we keep ahead of the trends and we focus on these main things:
You need more targeted internet traffic.
Your website needs to be found easily.
The results below show how well google “favours” our work and we feature well in the results as a worldwide “authority” on many topics.

Do I need a website?

Should your business have a website, even if your business is small and sells products or services you don't think can be sold online? Yes, if you have a business, in the 21st Century, you should have a website without a doubt.
Why? Well, because over 80 percent of New Zealander's now do research online for information, comparison and to identify potential suppliers before they make a purchase. And that's not sales hype - check it out for yourself on the Department of Statistics website (

Isn't selling online only suitable for retail type products?

Don't be too quick to dismiss your product as one that can't be sold online. Nowadays, there's very little that can't be sold over the internet. More that 200 million shoppers are now online, purchasing everything from books to cars to real estate to jet aircraft name it. 1.7 million New Zealander's bought online last year, and it was forecasted to grow to over 2 million by the end of 2013. You should at least have a presence on the web so that customers, potential employees, business partners and perhaps even investors can quickly and easily find out more about your business and the products or services that you have to offer.
Online NZ are able to assist you with web design and development within your comfort level and budget.

What sort of website do I need?

That said, it's not enough that you just have a website. You must have a professional-looking designed and well structured website if you want to be taken seriously. Since many consumers now search for information online prior to making a purchase even at their local hardware store, your site may be the first chance you have at making a good impression on a potential buyer.

One of the great things about the internet is that it has leveled the playing field when it comes to competing with the big boys. As mentioned, you have one shot at making a good first impression. With a well-designed site, your small operation can project the image and professionalism of a much larger company.

But I'm only a very small business.....

If you consider that yours is a small operation, when it comes to benefiting from a website, size does not matter. If you are a one-man show or a 10,000-employee corporate giant; if you don't have a website, you're probably losing business to your competitors that do.
Nowadays, Your Website is an important part of your business. Make sure you treat it as such.
