NZ's most innovative rural business directory.

We help rural businesses connect with new customers


Connecting Rural New Zealand.

RuralHQ is a platform through which rural people connect with good honest reputable businesses, just like yours. For the price of a small ad in a rural newsletter, your business can get the exposure it deserves.

By collectively sharing positive experiences on RuralHQ, rural people are empowered to make better decisions faster, and businesses have a way to take their ‘word of mouth’ reputation online to reach further, and have more impact, than traditional advertising channels.

We take the hard work out of building your reputation online. Our platform gives you the tools to make it easy, and we’ll help you do it.


Your customers are online. We help them find you!

Word of mouth and traditional advertising has served you well, but times are changing. 

In our modern connected world, ‘Digital Natives’ are gaining ever increasing influence over buying decisions. These are people that have grown up with a phone in their pocket, and easy internet access. When looking for a new supplier or products, they tend towards pulling out their phones as the first step in the search. The way they decide where to spend their money has also changed. Relationships still matter, but not as much as they did.

The numbers speak for themselves

90% of consumers read online reviews before visiting a business.
