“It’s been a shock. New Zealanders love – visitors to the site have really connected, with around 49% of kiwi visitors making their homepage of choice. These results have totally astounded the OHDC team, which has accelerated the official worldwide launch of the site.”

“We’re incredibly excited to take our New Zealand developed website – – to kiwi’s everywhere as well as to an international audience,” Says Nick. “It’s about taking New Zealand business and tourism to the rest of the world.”

The worldwide launch and THE HUNDY RUN will focus on giving away New Zealand cash and prizes from the site, encouraging New Zealanders and visitors worldwide to win and use their prizes locally.

“International visitors win New Zealand cash and prizes just like kiwi players do – and along the way to winning they also see a fantastic representation of kiwi businesses. It’s a great way for anyone coming to New Zealand to find out all about the way things get done in Aotearoa.”

Australians have been the first to begin hitting – with 92,000 hits already recorded from across the ditch in the month of November to sister site, Nick says.

“It’s taken New Zealand by storm – no doubt the international community will take it to another level,” he says. “Isn’t it great to see a little kiwi company take it to the world!”
