Discover how Search Republic came to fruition from an online travel startup business – and grew into a leading Kiwi digital marketing agency.
Our heritage of e-commerce success
Our parent company Online Republic, (now GoSee) global online travel agent, transformed from just an idea in 2004 to one of Australasia’s largest and most successful e-commerce companies. In the past ten years alone, Online Republic, in partnership with ourselves, invested more than $100m into SEM and SEO and other digital marketing strategies resulting in over $1.5 billion in online sales.
In January 2013, we decided to share the vast in-house capability and knowledge from Online Republic with other companies to help them succeed on the world stage. Thus, Search Republic was born.
