" : search here first & let your heart do the talking" is the new online directory where you can choose businesses according to your personal interests & values.

At least 70% of all advertising fees are given to community organisations of the advertiser’s choice which are then shown in search results. This means, eg, it’s now easier than ever to find a business supporting your kid's school, your local sports club or fav charity.

NZ invented, owned & operated, Halo™Biz is based in the Wonderful Waikato and opened its online doors in July 2011.

Halo™Biz is all about polishing local business halos so if you’re a business wanting to raise your profile, please make contact. If you’re a community organisation wanting to increase your fundraising $ we’d equally enjoy hearing from you.

For more info visit, "FOLLOW" our Tweets @HaloBizNZ and "LIKE" at, or "WATCH" us on YouTube.  

We look forward to hearing from you.

Until we chat, smiles from Julie & the team at Halo™Biz.
