The eCommerce.org.nz website is operated by Netmarketing Courses, the trading name of Netmarketing Services Limited.
We Train Kiwi Organisations
We specialise in online training – we don’t offer digital marketing services ourselves because we believe our time and expertise is better directed to training those who do.
Our company, Netmarketing Services Limited, is based in Auckland, New Zealand. Thanks to the joys of doing business online, we provide our courses to students across New Zealand and increasingly around the world (we’ve had participants from Switzerland, France, the British Isles, the US and of course Australia). We’ve had more than 2500 take our courses since we began offering the courses in early 2010.
The courses are written by the principal of Netmarketing Services Limited, Michael Carney.
Michael is a highly experienced marketer with an insatiable passion for whatever’s new, different, exciting or interesting in the world of communications (and especially in the digital space). Michael has been in the marketing game since 1971, online since 1987 — and can be variously described as a digital marketing trainer, adman, media director, strategist, researcher, copywriter, consultant, playwright and dad.
He is probably best known for his many years as Media Director of a number of leading NZ advertising agencies, including MDA Mackay King (now Saatchi & Saatchi) and HKM Rialto (since merged with Colenso BBDO). More recently he worked in strategic roles with MediaCom New Zealand and Grey Worldwide and was Strategic Planning Director for the Media Counsel before setting up Netmarketing Services Limited.
Michael is also the author of “Trade Me Success Secrets: How To Buy and Sell Effectively on NZ’s Favourite Auction Site”, now in its second edition; and is currently working on a new book, “How To Use Facebook For Business”, due out in August this year.
Michael was chairman of the NZ Marketing Association’s Network of Digital Marketers from 2009 until March 2013. He is also a professionally-accredited Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketers (UK).
Our Online Training Courses
We offer online training in various aspects of digital marketing, predominantly in partnership with leading industry and professional associations (see below for more details of those organisations). Our courses include:
95% of Kiwis are researching products online, long before they consider stepping inside a retail store. But many Kiwi retailers simply aren’t actively marketing online. To meet that need, we’ve developed a ten-week online training course to help retailers market effectively online.
For more details of the How to Market Your Retail Business Online programme, please click here.
Because Social Media never stands still, we’ve developed a brand new course that has as its focus the very latest developments in the medium. This course is designed for those who already have a solid understanding of Social Media Marketing and wish to keep themselves as up-to-date as possible. The course content is reviewed monthly and updated where necessary to reflect what’s happening NOW.
For more details of the Advanced Social Media Marketing programme, please click here.
So you have a few hundred (or a few thousand) followers on Facebook but now you want to know how to get to the next level? Our Facebook Accelerator seven-part online course will lead you through the steps necessary to supercharge your Facebook presence and get Kiwi consumers engaging with you and your brands.

For those who wish to master Facebook Marketing in its entirety, we’ve created a ten-week online training programme which will take you from absolute beginner on Facebook to highly effective Facebook communicator.

Even if you don’t intend to become directly involved in social media yourself, you may still need to understand the principles, practices and opportunities of social media — for example, if you need to brief someone about running a social media campaign. This programme is designed to provide you with the insights necessary to prepare an effective brief.

Find Us On Facebook
Although we do of course operate a number of Facebook pages we don’t use them as a primary marketing tool, given that our target is businesses who aren’t operating effectively in social media (79% of NZ businesses fall into that category, according to the MYOB Business Monitor for November 2012).
