About Us

Who is The Backpage NZ?

We are a private married couple who were advertising on the original backpage and like many of you found the platform to be absolutely perfect for our business. When the site went down our income plummeted so one day, as he was sitting on the toilet (where all the great ideas come from) before work, it came to him. We would bring the Backpage back! So we have spent months (too many months in fact) recreating the BackpageNZ, offering the same great ways of promotion yourself while introducing a distinctly New Zealand flavour.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
