When verifiying google+ pages lately, and despite them having New Zealand as the location, the postcards seem to be travelling via Thailand and taking a really long time to arrive? Is there any particular reason why this is happening???

Some good tips to keep your Adwords click through steaming. I agree with using specific numbers but it can be hard to keep thinking of new copy!
With such limited space and tons of competition, writing AdWords ads is a pain. To stand out, make sure you're using these battle-tested tactics.

Awesome scenery & photography - nature on steroids
Lakes and ponds might look nice, but the cold of winter just elevates them to another dimension. As you might have seen in our previous post, freezing water creates an astonishing variety of patterns: from jagged lines or frozen bubbles to perfect snowflakes with every imaginable shade of blue, ...

I have a client who's google+/map pages were set up years ago and they can't for the life of them remember their passwords. There are now several duplicate pages (with incorrect addresses) and they want them removed! How can I do this? I tried reporting them as impersonating another page - and even sent Google a signed letter on behalf of my client saying we were able to act for them - with no luck! 

Hope someone can provide some answers!

The new trend: do something really quirky and generous with your brand, film it and then share on social media: http://stoppress.co.nz/blog/2015/04/coca-cola-treats-all-42-people-otira-taste-test?utm_source=Newsletter&utm_medium=EDM&utm_campaign=2015-04-17
Last week, Coca-Coca Life hit Kiwi shelves, giving Kiwi consumers their first opportunity to purchase the stevia-based variant. But long before anyone in Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington or Dunedin was able to taste the drink, the Coca-Cola team headed south to ...

Great to see nZ online spend eclipsing newspaper spend. Figures on mobile spending show heaps of potential.
The Interactive Advertising Bureau of New Zealand (IABNZ) has released the Q4 figures for 2014 and, somewhat unsurprisingly, the results again showed growth in the channel. In Q4, advertising revenue in the digital channel reached $168 million, marking a 32 ...

Simon supplied hearing aids for my brother when he ran a clinic in Canterbury but now after being a senior manager for a large hearing aid group, Simon is head audiologist at Audiology South hearing clinic in Invercargill where he has become the main shareholder. I could not speak highly enough of the way he operates. He was patient and informative with my brother. So great for my brother's wife who was getting a bit ratty as it does take apparently seven years of procrastination before people get their hearing tested! Simon is a consummate professional, always smiley with a twinkle in his eye and extremely knowledgeable. 5 star service on a 4 star budget!

My premium went from $2,500 to over $8,000 per annum when they found I had two rooms of my house used as an office. They refused to rate just part of the house and insisted that the whole house be rated as commercial. I then paid it in installments through the year last year. This year I did the same, then in September, having paid 75% of the fee being three quarters of the way through the year, I got a phone call today threatening to cancel the policy if I didn't pay the rest within 5 days because I was drip feeding it and I "hadn't ticked the premium funding option.' I said I didn't understand that premium funding was drip feeding and given I paid that way last year, and have been paying steadily all the way along, why had it taken them 9 months. I asked for to change to drip feeding and they refused. I'm shopping elsewhere. They did pay the extra from EQC and I am grateful. But I've been regularly paying a huge increase and feel that they are holding me to ransom when I have been very conscientious. Fair enough if it was still $2,500.

When looking for a Christchurch builder, we selected Sam on referral from a colleague for whom he had built a modern architecturally designed townhouse. He has completed two residential projects for us, a $200k renovation of a two storey 1920's Fendalton home, and repairs at our farm homestead. He is currently completing our EQC repairs and we're about half way through. Sam is good at keeping to budget and the workmanship is value for money. He's good at communicating and personable.
