How to advertise with Franchise New Zealand

How your advertising works

Franchise New Zealand enjoys a first-class reputation for delivering quality leads to its advertisers. It's easy to generate time-wasting enquiries from "tyre-kickers", but we specialise in delivering enquiries from people genuinely interested and informed about franchising. We offer a mix of information, advice, case studies and news articles, so that your advertising appears within the context of intelligent and informed comment. Readers are given the knowledge and tools to self-assess, and to have real expectations about what it takes to own and run a business.

“To date, every dealing I have had with Franchise New Zealand has been superb – you and your team live and breathe the franchise industry. We believe the magazine, website and newsletter are informative, easy-to-read and professional. We have found the magazine a key source of quality franchise enquiries. The web site equally enables potential franchisees to qualify their targets and provide a sense of surety they are dealing with a reputable franchisor.”

Paul Brown, Paramount Services – Supreme Franchise System of the Year 2008, 2016, 2018

“I launched Dream Doors in New Zealand through Franchise New Zealand magazine and website and I am delighted by the results. It is worth every cent - if their advertising cost three times as much it would still be worth it to us.”

Derek Lilly, Managing Director, Dream Doors (NZ) Ltd

“The Westpac Franchise Directory at the back of the magazine and on the website has long been the who’s who in franchising and an easy way to find a large percentage of the franchise opportunities available in the market. It also lists the specialist advisors that potential franchisees will need in one convenient directory. Many of the famous franchise brands out there started with articles and listings in Franchise New Zealand magazine and it is an important vehicle for franchisors marketing franchises.”
