ZB Phone Out With Jeff and Heather du Plessis-Allan - 3rd May 2022


Web Wonks; a Premier Google Ad Partner in the top 3% of all agencies in NZ. A team of 27 wonks working hard on SEO, Ecommerce, Social and more.



H: Jeff, you have some insights from the Activate Auckland Funding.

J: Hi Heather, I do and I have a warning. Web Wonks was the largest provider of services for the Activate Auckland funding and we helped over 200 clients.

30% of these businesses are in retail. 25% are in the trades. 25% are service based. 15% were tourism businesses. While the remaining 5% are hard to classify, such as the BDSM lounge – and I can tell you, that the Google policies were a hard ask on that.

Now 95% of clients wanted Google Ad Support, 75% wanted SEO support, and 25% wanted website support. So all good stuff.

However, we are now seeing a real boom in digital marketing companies who didn’t exist before this false economy, and who now are out there trying to grow their client base. Problem is, many of these companies just don’t have any depth.

They are promising top spot on Google – which is not possible to promise – or they are charging small initial fees, and then hiding additional costs in the paperwork. I think there is a real issue in the digital industry and warn all businesses, to do your diligence.


H: And as a Premier Google Partner, you can offer $600 kick starter ad credit

J: We sure can, with every new Ad account we create, you get $600 of ad credit to get your campaign rolling.

Work with the best, work with Web Wonks.
