"95% of kiwis use the internet every day and 88% will search online for a product or service prior to purchase"

This is where small Kiwi businesses lose out to larger companies, chain stores and online retailers who dominate Google search results.

These small businesses are often overlooked because they are not investing in digital advertising or growing their online presence. 

When people use their phones/digital devices to search for local products and services most small businesses are not getting found, so people aren’t aware of what their business offers and often end up buying from the big players like Mitre10, The Warehouse etc

Checklocal supports small businesses in New Zealand only. Small businesses are defined as having fewer than 20 employees so if you have 19 employees or less you’re good to go!

If your business hovers around that amount, perhaps just over, contact us as we can make exceptions on a case by case basis.

Yes. You can cancel your plan at any time, there is no contract or lock in period. We don’t offer refunds for partial months so if you cancel on the 1st for example and your monthly payment is on the 16th you will not be reimbursed for the 15 days.

Not at all! You can use Checklocal as a way to build your online presence and start getting found in the major search engines and the Checklocal search engine.

It would be hugely beneficial to have at least one external URL you can use eg; Facebook, A business directory, Pinterest, Etsy etc… 

No, the idea behind CheckLocal is that business owners or existing employees can manage their content themselves and draw upon their knowledge of their business industry to write and publish unique content for people searching for answers online.

With that said however, if you have limited time to put aside for creating your content and are happy to outsource then by all means go for it!

Checklocal offer a single Flat Rate Plan of $39.95 per month. No hidden costs what-so-ever. 

This plan gives you unlimited advertising. All profiles published are live while your plan is active.

For Answer, Product and Service Profiles your content will be saved in two formats.

One format is for Google. So any time someone searches for content on Google, your profile has the opportunity to rank in the organic search results.

The second format is for the Checklocal Search Engine. Your profile will rank for any search performed on the Checklocal website that includes the same keyword(s)

A visitor to www.checklocal.co.nz can search the entire profile database for an Answer, Product, Sale/Special Offer or Service.

Content can be filtered by location, so users can localise their search results.

All profiles are displayed using RSR (Random Search Results). So every profile has the opportunity to rank 1st, 2nd 3rd and so on every time a search is performed.

Search results can also be shuffled using the shuffle button, returning a new order of results for the user.
