How did Source It come to life?

My name is Paul Hewitt, I consider myself to be a typical Kiwi in business - I work for myself and try to make a living for my family by working hard and persevering through the bad times and trying to enjoy the good.

Covid#19 has been a shock and a blow to the New Zealand economy. During lockdown all I could think about was “How are we going to rebuild New Zealand in the aftermath of this crises”

What became immediately apparent was the need for businesses to be able to Network better, Share work, share knowledge, help each other in any collaborative way whatsoever, to make us and our country all stronger.

Www.Scourceitnz.co.nz as a concept was born, to turn adversity into inspiration for as many as possible.  

Many companies are purchasing products from abroad that could be manufactured in NZ. In many cases they have just thought it was cheaper to buy in China and never explored our own back yard to find some of the highly skilled artisans, designers and tradesman that hide in every corner of our country. A product may be a little cheaper made in China, but is it better than a product costing a maybe a little more MADE IN NEW ZEALAND?

The original concept has not been taken up as I had hoped despite massive advertising campaigns. Hundreds of very welcome comments but little interest. Now I am changing the site to be a complete business tool. You can advertise your company, advertise your products or for products and services that you desire to source. I have also added the ability to advertise for staff and to buy and sell businesses. Each listing will be free, but a $5.00 administration fee will apply to help offset operating costs. This is an ANNUAL fee, and you can change your ad whenever you like to suit your needs. No other site in New Zealand can offer you so much for such a small price. 

Yes, all this for a year for LESS than the price of a cheap coffee. Or put simply, under 1.5c per day.

That’s my vision and dream and now it’s real. WWW.Sourceitnz.co.nz is here.
