Company profile

gauk Media is NOT a Web Design Agency!
We’re a ‘Solutions Company’ Run by Internet Entrepreneurs

We’re owned and operated by a very rare breed indeed … ‘Entrepreneurs’ who have and still do run successful, profitable online businesses of their own.

Gauk (now gauk Media NZ) has run commercial websites for nearly fifteen years. Each business has been built from zero and self-funded with no outside investments or loans. Every one has grown through trial and failure using strategic testing, methods and technologies with a laser sharp focus on a ‘return’ for every dollar invested.

It’s One Thing Having a Website … It’s a Totally Different Ball Game ‘Doing Business’ Online!

After years of outsourcing gauk Media is now growing its base here in Ruby Bay. You’ll be working from a small but energy filled office on a stunning lifestyle block, just five minutes from the sea and overlooking vineyards, orchards and the full expanse for 360 degree mountain views.

We’re more shorts and tee shirt than slick suits and designer haircuts…

And we want YOU to join us.
