Looking for the best Marketers in NZ? Your search stops here.

We have recently been awarded as Best Marketing & Communications Specialists by APAC Insider for New Zealand Businesses for 2018.

Being awarded Excellence in Marketing gives our clients confidence in our capabilities with their marketing challenges.

We are proud to have won the Award for Excellence in Marketing at the Westpac Business Awards in 2016 and finalist for Excellence in Strategy & Planning.  One of our clients also won this award through our help in 2015 and 2017. We have additional client entries in 2018.

We were also the runners up in the AUT Business Support Awards in 2016 for businesses who work to improve other businesses, which is an NZ wide competition.

What does winning awards mean for us and other SMEs?

Entering into awards helps small businesses by benchmarking their capabilities across their peers, and by exposing them to wider networks, all of which help to grow build brand reputation and word of mouth marketing.  As a company that ‘Walks the Talk’ we often recommend awards to our clients as a great way to build a network and build trust metrics within the brand that go towards helping customers to say ‘YES’ to working with you.

At Max Marketing we don’t recommend things we haven’t tried ourselves – and so putting our hat into the ring was an important way for us to ascertain the journey that SME entrants go on with the awards process, and determine how best to leverage the additional interest and publicity these events bring.

Now we’ve been through it, we know the effort and demands put on small business resources to tell the story effectively and present the facts to demonstrate excellence and effectiveness. We have also seen first hand what becoming a finalist can bring – with our phone ringing off the hook the day after the announcement with new companies wanting to work with us.

If you think that awards should be part of your marketing strategy, speak to us and we can help you formulate how this can fit into your wider plan, or if you are already a finalist or a winner, let’s talk about how we can leverage all that good PR you are probably already getting from the process.

Finalists in the Category of Best Business, <$5M for Sales and Marketing Support as assessed by AUT, we are in great company with Mint Design and Intelligent Ink.  To find out about these awards and what they mean for NZ Businesses, visit the AUT Awards to learn more about the process we undertook to reach this position.


The Westpac Business Awards are probably the most well known of the business awards for SMEs and are held throughout NZ.  We were successful in two categories, Marketing and Strategy and Planning and are in good company with other finalists, Northern Arena, MoeMoe, and Manawanui Incharge, DogHQ and Distribution Box Ltd.  To hear more about the other finalists and learn about the awards, visit the Westpac Auckland Awards page.
