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.

LOCALTACTIC’s complete article can be found at

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

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.

Seoul police up security after rally at US envoy residence

Aug 15, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korean police said Saturday they beefed up security at the U.S. ambassador's residence in Seoul after a group of anti-American students used ladders to break into the compound. They were protesting demands by the Trump administration that South Korea pay more to help cover the costs of keeping U.S. troops in the country. Officials from three Seoul police stations didn't immediately say whether they will seek to formally arrest any of the 19 university students who were detained Friday afternoon at the residence of Ambassador Harry Harris.

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

Aug 15, 2020

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Women, late-in-life new authors expand Japanese literature

Aug 15, 2020

TOKYO — The works receiving one of Japan's most coveted literary awards, the Naoki Prize, have something new in common: For the first time in 85 years, all six of the nominated authors are women. Japan is home to what many consider the world's first novel, "The Tale of Genji," written in the 11th century by noblewoman Murasaki Shikibu. Its modern fiction has been defined mostly by long-established male writers such as past Nobel laureates Kenzaburo Oe and Yasunari Kawabata. And for decades it has been dominated by Haruki Murakami, whose surreal blend of magical realism and pop culture has...

Chinese pop stars publicly back Beijing on Hong Kong

Aug 15, 2020

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...
