This year we helped Kiwi businesses three million times. Thousands of you gave feedback and helped shape our tools. Next year we start personalising our services.
This year there were over 3 million sessions on our website, 25% higher than last year. Each month on average our content was accessed around a quarter of a million times.
With help from our 100+ partners from across government and the private sector, and thousands of small business who provided feedback and design insights, this year we launched a heap of new tools and resources, including:
This year we talked to thousands of different Kiwi businesses up and down New Zealand, along with many business advisors and supporters.
Over and over businesses have told us they find it difficult to understand what applies to their particular situation, and where they can go for further help.
So we’re working with the public sector, expert advisors, industry groups and regional business partners to start personalising information to your needs.
We also want to get better at connecting you with expert help in your regions, when you need it. We want you to get the right advice for your business, at the right time.
The first thing we’re doing is working to personalise this newsletter to your needs. In 2019, we’ll be asking you what you want to hear about so we can bring you the most relevant updates and information for you and your business.
In 2018, the World Bank said New Zealand was the easiest place in the world to do business. While this is great, we think we can keep striving in 2019 to help Kiwi businesses fly.
See you then!
