Where to deliver inserts
Whether you are targeting the most senior IT managers in corporate and government organisations, members of the ICT channel or consumers, Techday has the right publication or website for you
Since starting in 2006, we have assembled a number of publications and websites. We now have a fully integrated suite of publications and websites across virtually every part of the IT, telecommunications and consumer electronics industries.
You can find a full list of our publications here.
To get started, we suggest you download our media kit here.
You can subscribe to any of Techday's publications by contacting us on 0800 SUB NOW (782 669) or +64 9 376 8121 outside of New Zealand.
Our password resetting system works with the following steps:
1) Visit the forgotten password page.
2) Enter your email address and a new password, and click submit.
3) You will then receive an email with a link to activate the new password. Until you click this link the new password won't be activated.
4) Click the link to activate your password. You will be taken to a page confirming your password has been reset.
5) Click on the login link at the top of any Techday page.
6) Enter your email address and new password.
Here are the two most common problems customers encounter:
1) The password resetting procedure requires that you activate the new password before using it. We have encounted a number of customers whose email client breaks this activation URL into two lines. So when you click on the link, it is incomplete and your new password is never activated. If this happens to you, you will need to copy and paste the different parts of the URL into your browser to assemble the complete activation URL again. Once activated your password will work.
2) In rare circumstances your new password email is treated as junkmail or spam. If you haven't received your new password email after five minutes this maybe the case for you. Please check your junkmail / spam folder or if you are a Spark Xtra customer log into your Yahoo Xtra webmail to clear your spam folder.
If you are still having problems with your password contact us.
Eventually all of our magazine content goes online in the form of an archive.
This occurs approximately a month after the magazine has been published.

A site takeover is an opportunity to theme panels on either side of a particular section of our website with an image that supports your existing banner, tile or skyscraper advertising. Because different users have different zoom settings and screen sizes, no guarantees can be made that all users will have the full imagery. The imagery for these panels should be non-critical information, ideally a pattern or colour, with no text.
Two JPEG panels both measuring 266px wide x 900px high with a fade to our background colour (#EEE) at the bottom. Please note that we're unable to accept Flash files.
Where to send all the files: Files should be emailed directly to email@example.com five working days before the campaign is due to start.

If you're providing the content please include:
If you choose us to write the story we need the following information:
Send all this to your account manager, who will get it to the appropriate journalist.
It takes us approximately five working days to turn around a sponsored story writing project or just two days if the content is provided complete.
Our journalism is designed to inform, entertain or contribute to debate concerning the development of the ICT industry in NZ. We hope that through better information, users of technology will become more productive.
It is our policy that we provide:
Definition: Stakeholders are our readers, advertisers, employees and shareholders (including any parent companies) or any industry contact or special interest group we encounter.
Below are the key questions we get asked about our reviewing procedures and policies:
Do I have to pay in order to submit a product for review?
No. Techday's review scheme is free of charge. However, we welcome any corresponding giveaway opportunities that may present themselves.
Which publications do you accept review product for?
At this stage we are just reviewing products in NetGuide, Start-Up, PlayOn and AppleWatch, but occasionally we consider reviews for our other business publications. The problem we face with business or enterprise products is that we don't have the right environment or technical experience to fully test some of the more complex solutions.
What does participation in the review scheme get me?
Submitting your products for review is a great way of possibly receiving coverage, which may include feature images of the product along with details of the product's features, specifications, pros and cons.
What happens to the review product?
Products over $500 in value will be returned to the supplier. Generally speaking, products under that value will be kept by Techday and auctioned some three months after the publication of the review as a means of supplementing the review facility and the time spent on the piece.
Will participation guarantee a good review? And can we see the review before it is published?
No on both counts. The review process will be impartial and no further correspondence will be entered into. Techday endeavours to ensure the review process is fair and based on comprehensive and knowledgeable testing.
If I submit product for review, is it guaranteed to be published?
Vendors, distributors and PR agencies are welcome to submit products and press releases to Techday for consideration. However, if only a press release is provided, we will consider the product for inclusion as an announcement. The announcements provide less substantial coverage with little to no discussion, a small image and release details only. Inclusion is at the discretion of Techday. Products supplied for review will have a much greater chance of inclusion.
Are any products excluded from the reviews?
Yes, products focused on corporate or enterprise customers will not be reviewed, as well as electronic components and services like SaaS solutions. This is because we don't have the facilities or expertise to review these type of products and that they aren't relevant to our audience. Remember at this stage we are only accepting reviews for the following consumer focused publications: NetGuide, Start-Up, PlayOn and AppleWatch
Can we arrange a joint advertising/review deal?
No. The review scheme will operate independently from advertising sales.
How do I arrange a review?
We've got a centalised approach to reviews. Email our review co-ordinator Aaron Smithson here, he will register your product in our tracking system and know to expect it. Then despatch the product/s to Aaron Smithson, Techday Ltd, 3B 49 Brown Street, Ponsonby, Auckland. Only Aaron can sign loan agreements on behalf of Techday Ltd.
All inserts into Techday publications should be delivered to the address below. Before delivery the packages should be clearly marked with the magazine and issue (i.e. The Channel November 2015)
