As we all navigate this uncertain time, we want to say thank you to all of you on the frontline, our unsung heroes.
Pharmacists, Doctors, Nurses and Healthcare Professionals and their teams are working tirelessly across New Zealand to make us safe.
They are risking their own personal safety to meet our needs and are needing to adapt almost daily to respond to this rapidly developing situation.
We want to take a moment to say thank you and kia kaha.
Thank you for prioritising continuity of care in this uncertain time. Thank you for doing your best to juggle the safety of your teams, your families and for providing critical support on the front line. Thank you for caring for the people of New Zealand.
But we want to do more than just thank you. We want to show you our support. That’s why we’re asking all New Zealanders to write their own personal tribute to New Zealand’s healthcare professionals and tag them with #UnsungHeroesNZ. It’ll give them hope and let them know we care.
We can’t wait to see your photos, your stories and your support for those on the front line. It’s the least we can do for those keeping us safe.

Landing pages are pages on your website used strategically to align to specific keywords you (the retailer) want to be visible for in Google. Your goal is to have traffic “landing” on specific pages throughout your website, completely bypassing the home page.
In ecommerce, the most effective landing pages are the main and sub category pages within your navigation structure. However, there is also a need to build landing pages to sit outside of your navigation set up.
