PD is an online Directory for Maori & Pacific Islander owned business helping consumers find your business quicker & easier in one dedicated space.
The directory will fill a crucial gap in the Australian & Pacific markets as well as the global market, allowing for more choice for consumers, while also allowing business owners to showcase their offerings and, ultimately, expand their presence on the local & international market. See our ”About” page via ‘Meet the Network’ tab for more details.

Being listed on Pacific Direct does not automatically guarantee sales but can improve your business visibility and help customers, potential buyers find you more easily.
Pacific Direct is more of a marketing tool and networking platform that consumers can use to search for goods and services more easily and quickly.
That’s Awesome if you do & we recommend you keep using those platforms.
We created the Directory site purely out of frustration of not being able to find Maori & Pacific Business easily or quickly. Having to trawl through the Facebook & IG pages was very time consuming so we thought if we are finding it hard then how many others are feeling the same so the Directory idea was born. A dedicated space where you only had to search in one spot & save time.
We also wanted to support, connect & shine a spotlight on all Pacific Business around the globe not just locally. Being aware of what Pacific Business are out there also gives the Communities a chance to support each other and celebrate each business success no matter what stage they are at or where they are located.
Covid19 really hit a lot of Business hard with many having to close. This is one way to ensure we have the platform to support from afar & everyone have a more global reach should another pandemic happen.

The Advantage of being on the PBN Directory is that our directory not only lists local & national Business but our reach is also global.
Use the content on your profile to market or “sell” your business effectively. Doing so makes it more likely that customers will:
1) find your business on the directory, and/or
2) decide to purchase your goods or services directly from your website
You don’t have to, but we highly recommend you do. Adding pictures helps with the branding of your business, and potential customers will want to see your products or the end results of your services before purchasing.
We want you to showcase the BEST you can so you & your Business THRIVES & SUCCEEDS! After all we are ALL IN with you on your journey here!
Upload photos that show your business off! If you sell products, upload pictures that show just how amazing your products are. If you are a service provider, upload pictures that show the great results you’ve achieved for your previous customers.
Remember what picture is going to get customers wanting to buy from you or hire you? If you need help in deciding why not ask our PBN members in our Facebook group chat.
