the benefits of using Vitalise

it has free listings
Free listings are available for individuals, businesses, sports clubs, social groups and services.
This means that everyone gets to tell the community about what they do and what they can offer – it’s not restricted to those with an advertising budget.
We also have classified advertising at extremely low rates, and build affordable websites which you can promote externally and we can promote through Vitalise.
Our best deal ever can be seen here

it’s 24/7.
Unlike other forms of advertising (radio 30 seconds, newspaper a few days), Vitalise is available to its audience 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

Information stays where we put it on the site so it can always be located – not like putting a notice on a community social media site, where it will quickly be replaced by pictures of cats and dogs. We use those sites too, but Vitalise has one specific mission – to do the best possible job of representing everything in our community, and informing each and every member of this community about everything they need to know to get the best out of what we have here.
This means that someone looking for a special bargain, a coffee, a sports club or help with their health can search for it at 4pm or 2am – it’s there for them at all times.

it will help keep local money in the local community
We have a huge range of great businesses and services, and they deserve our support.
Vitalise will allow more people to see exactly what is on offer in our community, and help our businesses thrive.
This includes visitors to our community, who need to find what is available and where it is.
If your business or group is located in Thames, Paeroa, Waihi, Ngatea, Hauraki or Coromandel this website is designed to support you.
We do not support Big Box businesses – we are all about making our own local community thrive.
You can help promote local businesses and groups by telling everyone about a good experience with a locally owned/operated enterprise here

it has people waiting to hear about your offers to the community
Vitalise has a rapidly expanding list of locals who have signed up as members to win prize draws and hear about the offers that businesses and groups make to the local community.
A monthly email to these members will include all Special Deals made by local businesses and groups.
A quick and easy way to get your message to people who want to hear it.

it has free stuff
It has a section where we can offer free goods or services to fellow members of the community, whether this is a bag of lemons or a retired person wishing to use their skills to help another person or group.
Listings for garage sales are welcome.

it has a jobs section
This will help businesses needing staff locate the right people, and help job seekers find a position.

it’s new, and available for use right now.
The more listings we all put on the website, the better our community will be represented and the more useful the site will be.

it’s independently funded
Vitalise is built and sponsored by local business Photo Factory, so it’s not burning any ratepayer or taxpayer cash, and there is no subscription payable to use the website.

Rather have your own complete website? Vitalise can build you one from only $399.
You can promote it externally, while we promote it to Thames/Coromandel and Hauraki on the Vitalise website.

A stand alone website is a lot like putting
your advertising in a paddock,
and hoping that someone drives by.
It involves hosting fees, and can cost
a lot of money to make any changes.

Advertising in the Vitalise paddock means that we can promote you with
news items, promotional deals, and monthly
emails to all Vitalise members.
$5 per week includes hosting.

Vitalise is for all of us
in Coromandel and Hauraki,
and it's ready to use now!
If you would like help making a listing,
please call in to see us
at 507 Pollen Street Thames

Local Business Photo Factory started building the Vitalise website
during lockdown in 2020.
It is designed to give everyone a voice within our community.

Businesses, community groups, sports clubs and individuals
can now tell the rest of us all about themselves.
Everything from garage sales and free stuff to 
Special Deals from local businesses can be listed,
and we are always  happy to help 
if you need
some assistance with using the website.
