John Campbell is the CEO and one of the founders of the Gopher group. The Gopher NZ company is providing a service that is crucial to the success of thousands of small businesses and their owners. Gopher ensures that these companies are represented online through its massive directory, allowing a connection between consumer and company that has not been possible previously.
John Campbell started Gopher back in 2007, and since then it has grown exponentially, providing a valuable service to more than just New Zealand business owners. No other online directory company in the Asia Pacific area has grown as fast as Gopher has over the last 7 years. That means no other service offers the kind of visibility and expertise that Gophers provides to small and medium-sized businesses.
John Campbell started in sales before founding the Gopher NZ company. This gave him valuable experience that he has carried through is years of business. He worked with printed media and in telecommunications, so he knows what it takes to reach clients by any means necessary.
As he gained experience from his various sales and marketing work, John realized how essential online marketing was becoming to the success of businesses of all sizes. He began the Gopher NZ company as a way to bring an important service to companies who really didn’t have the knowledge or means to create an online presence for themselves.
Helping Businesses Succeed
John Campbell started Gopher as a means to bring something to small businesses that nobody else was providing. He heard from many businesses that they struggled to be represented properly and equally in the online space and that many larger companies were stifling their ability to grow and be noticed.
These smaller companies grew frustrated with not being able to connect with customers, but the Gopher NZ company changed all that by creating a directory for local businesses that extended to the online marketplace.
This allowed them to put their company on the map, so to speak, and make sure that many hundreds of thousands of potential customers could find them. It became an exciting opportunity for many companies to reach out to their local and global customers in new ways.
Gopher’s primary goal now is to create results that work to everyone’s benefit. The customers win because they can locate the businesses they want in their local area without having to resort to using faceless monopolies with little customer interaction.
Businesses win out because they can be found by clients all over the world and become even more visible to the customer’s in the local area. This allows them to grow their business and expand their online presence in exciting new ways.
And the Gopher NZ company wins because it is able to grow and expand as well. Even now it is looking to start operations in locations all over Southern Asia. As it finds its way into new markets, it is creating new business opportunities for thousands of companies.
