ubergeeknz: It would seem that the OP has a bit of work to get their own camp in order before trying to dish out advice to small business owners on successful web marketing :)
Aside from all the other problems described in this thread, the site is a bit slow, over 11s to load here (and I'm on a very fast network). Not a good start.
Yes you would expect them to host it in NZ to get it loading faster.
Maybe one of the conditions of listing a startup on here , could be that the lister can show that they are based in NZ. Potentially any listing could be literally be from anywhere, and using geekzone to advertise the website to get a higher pagerank. I am not saying that is the case in this case, but we don't know because it is impossible to know where they OP is from, from their website. I can't even see a company name or if it is a LLC.
Back on this website, I have had a look at the blog, where your are recommending services, and appear to be using affiliate links. So you are getting paid to recommend the service. You may want to disclose that you are an affiliate when you recommend something. You may also want to proof read what you have written, because there are some major grammatical problems. As you are wanting to rewrite peoples website content, they will be looking at the wording on your own website to see how well it reads.
