New Zealand Video Marketing

Auckland Video Marketing

Something I have noticed amongst the Auckland marketing scene is the fact that there is little to no Auckland video marketing Companies.

Across the world via a simple Google search we can find video marketing companies. Companies that specialize in whiteboard marketing (such as this one here;, we have other companies that specialize in explainer animation videos (such as this one here;

However in Auckland (or all over New Zealand) for that matter there are almost no companies that specialize in video marketing, or animation video for businesses.

If we do a simple Google search for; “whiteboard video Auckland” we can find little to nothing of companies that specialize in companies that produce animation videos.

SEO Auckland

We an see via this simple google search that there is almost no companies in Auckland that specialize in marketing video

I found one example on Youtube of a company that had an animated marketing video, it was for an SEO Auckland company and the video is located here;

I think personally we should have more of these videos around. The video is clear, well produced, looks professional and draws the viewer into watching the video and learn about the company.

Maybe I should start a company specializing in video production ;)

Until Next time

How Europeans Discovered New Zealand And Changed the Map

How Europeans Discovered New Zealand And Changed the Map

In the old times, people used to think that the earth was flat which was really hard to think because what will happen if we reached the ends of the earth? Will we fall? Good thing this perception has changed and then came the discovery of many other places around the world. Many countries were found earlier while some were found in the later part of the century. This is what happened in New Zealand.


Before it was discovered by the Europeans, New Zealand was already occupied by the Maori. A group of Polynesians who settled in the country. New Zealand was one of the very last body of land found by the European. The first European explorer who took sight of the Island was Abel Janszoon Tasman and this happened on December 13, 1642. Captain-Cook-protrait-side-He and his crew of men aboard the ships Heemskerck and Zeehaen during their travel to the island. They then landed on the South Island in Golden Bay which is now considered a heritage site and a national park. Although Tasman draws a map of the island but it was detailed, however, another explorer had the chance to circumnavigate the land on October 1769, it was Captain James Cook. He then made a map of the island which is now New Zealand. From then on, many missionaries, sailors and traders visit the islands. Because of Cooks clear description of the lands biodiversity, many sealers and whalers came to the place. Due to the massive arrival of many new visitors, the European government formed a treaty with the locals called Maori in order to propose equal rights among them. The treaty was called the Treaty of Waitangi and it was signed and witnessed by the British Crown Representative as well as several Maori Chieftains.

The treaty of Waitangi discusses equal rights between the Maori people and the European citizens. It acknowledges Maori’s ownership of their land as well as their other properties and it also gave the Maori rights just like the European people. There is an English and Maori version of the said treaty though they both vary in context and up to now, no one ever knows exactly what was agreed in the said treaty.

Through the next century, war ensued between the Europeans and the Maori’s. There were many European settlements and the imposition of European economic as well as their legal system led the Maori to loss their properties to the European which was then called Pakeha. Because of these events, the Maori’s became poor and suffered.

Now New Zealand has become a country making a name for themselves. Although their roots are tied to the Europeans they are striving in making their own name and mark in the world. Many are now flocking in to the country because of its serene beauty and natural wonders. Indeed the country has come a long way.
