Get your event website sorted – without the big cost


Bay of Plenty communications and event company Cheeky Rooster is hitting the sweet spot by serving up quality websites fast for smaller events. Through its experience in putting together many of the region’s top events, including the Motu Challenge multisport race and the Sunshine and a Plate Festival, the company has perfected a process for rapidly delivering a cost-effective site that works well.

Cheeky Rooster has over a decade of experience in the event industry in variety of roles including delivery, marketing or providing strategic advice.   


Director Mike van der Boom saw the opportunity after seeing event start-ups struggling to get a website for a reasonable cost. “Often, a new event will get a cheap site developed that doesn’t really fulfil its needs or which has a difficult content management system. The other option is an expensive site which way exceeds requirements.”


Van der Boom adds that a website is a crucial component in promoting an event, particularly when the fixture is new on the calendar. It is therefore a resource which has to be done effectively, or the event might suffer.

“We understand what event owners need. They need to be able to change content quickly by themselves, an ‘easy to use’ ticket purchase or entry process and, above all, they need a fit-for-purpose online presence which also fits within the budget.”


Recent examples of sites developed by Cheeky Rooster include the Motu Challenge multisport event in Opotiki and the Sunshine and  a Plate Festival in Whakatane[www.sunshineandaplate.co.nz].
