Christchurch, New Zealand - March 19, 2020 /PressCable/ —

LOCALTACTIC has released an article “Coronavirus COVID-19 The Importance of Local Business Websites in Christchurch NZ”, bringing some cause for concern, as the article may upset some people that consider their websites to be the lowest priority as far as maintenance and promotion is concerned.

The 400 word article examines the high points and low points of the Coronavirus increasing the need for Internet visibility for local business websites in Christchurch NZ. Contained within the article is their offer of help to local business owners by discounting their services for anything to do with the Coronavirus. This article is aimed mainly at small and local businesses that rely on word of mouth because their website has no visibility online. In a somewhat typical manner though, a certain element of the article is set to spark discontent for those with poorly maintained websites.

Below is a portion of the piece, which neatly exemplifies the controversial element:

“Being a small business owner myself, my take on the Coronavirus is this; since people are seeking self-isolation so they minimise the chances of catching the virus, they are going to depend on the internet even more than usual, this means that local business websites are even more important than ever before.”

A spokesperson for LOCALTACTIC, Steven Brough, says “Of course LOCALTACTIC never sets out to intentionally upset anybody. The aim of our articles is first and foremost to help with any media coverage that can help small and local businesses reach out to their target audience during the Coronavirus epidemic. It is critical, however, that we stay dedicated to our true voice.”

Here is a video introducing the article perfectly

Although our “Coronavirus COVID-19 Importance of Local Business Websites in Christchurch NZ” might unsettle those that consider their websites to be the lowest priority as far as maintenance and promotion is concerned, our duty is to our readers. We believe it’s more important to make a point that if business does drop off due to an economic downturn, then the need for internet visibility, for many businesses, will be the surviving factor through all this. It’s hard to please everyone, which is notoriously difficult to do.”

Although there has been no backlash as of yet, the possibility exists that some people may disagree with the contents of the article because of their circumstance, which is fair enough, I’m just making an offer to help and stating why I am offering help and what for.

LOCALTACTIC has been a provider of in-depth articles in the Digital Marketing arena for several months. If you are a business owner in Christchurch and you are reading this, then you can see it works, can’t you? Notice this article is on an International website and that you have seen it and read it – just trying to make a point that this works.

LOCALTACTIC has stated the main aim for the website is to offer an alternative to standard digital marketing services through the continued publication of news media and digital assets. So LOCALTACTIC hopes any controversy will pass quickly and re-emphasizes no offence is or was intended.
