We are developing the Lucid Directory and, to make it better and encourage people to spread the word, we are trialling a referral program. If you want to earn a little cash, feel free to sign-up. We intend to make the Lucid Directory one of the best tourism directories in New Zealand.

The way it works is that once you sign-up, you will be given a simple referral link that you can put on your blog, email out or do whatever you want with.

We will credit NZD $10.00 (incl. GST) to your account for anyone who takes out a paid subscription within 30 days of clicking your referral link. Simple as that.

For those who don’t know, PayPal has been available for Kiwis for some time now. All the basic functions for sending and receiving payments are available and you can withdraw your funds into your New Zealand bank accounts at any time.Personally I think PayPal still has some limitations but it’s pretty easy to use, it’s definitely cheap and it’s pretty widely trusted.More information is available on the PayPal website.


More businesses in New Zealand need to promote the fact their products are made locally. The Lucid Directory has a whole category for New Zealand-made products.


This is one of those ideas you wish you had thought of yourself. A simple directory where people can list their websites and then (when it’s fully implemented) pay to put themselves on the top. Anyone else can then crown themselves as King and they, in turn, are back on top. What a cool concept.

I must say, though, I am surprised that Lucid Design has remained King of the List for over 11 hours already—I had thought I would get bumped down very quickly but I’m sure that will change as more people use this site. These are the sorts of sites you expect to have hundreds or thousands of members but it must be very early days.

Watch this space. These guys have a very good little business potential here. Great work.
