New Zealand is a pretty ka pai place. Consistently named one of the top countries to live in the world, there are many benefits, like the scenery, the culture, and the lifestyle, to name a few.
However, finding information about New Zealanders and how to market to them isn’t always easy. Especially when it comes to habits and spending (unless we’re talking sport). Most online information is for the US, UK or Australian markets.
Anecdotal evidence can be helpful to a degree, but sometimes you need the cold hard facts to help make informed business decisions.
At Storbie, we’ve sorted through the latest reports relating to Kiwi shopping habits to bring insights for how best to sell to the locals. (more…)
One of the unique features of Storbie is the ability to create and join marketplaces.
A marketplace is an online destination for multiple shops to be grouped together to increase discoverability, it’s part of being “Different Together“. Much like going to physical markets, Storbie’s online marketplaces allow shoppers to browse a range of products. However these markets are always open and allow search from anywhere via mobile, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.
The more visibility your website and products have, the more likely customers will see your products and buy from you.
No more waiting until the weekend, handling cash or moving stock in the rain!
