The New Zealand Affiliate Programs and Affiliate Marketing blog came about after 5 years working (in part) in the international affiliate market. After shifting focus to work in the New Zealand online market I realised there was a distinct lack of information about affiliate programs for the New Zealand market.
Due to this lack of information as well as a generally low broadband up-take across the NZ market (particular because of the previous Telecom monopoly), affiliate programs were widely unknown by New Zealand webmasters. There were a few prominent exceptions and these few affiliates were all targeting the wider international market (usually the US) so there has been little time spent providing NZ specific affiliate information.
