For quarter a century, OmniHyper® has been providing electrifying, forward-thinking, value for money, hyper-innovative digital products and services for medium-sized business across Australia, New Zealand and around the world.
Spider Web International is born.
Spider Web was started in Michael’s parents’ garage, Lake Taupo, New Zealand.
Initially developing a website that represented all charter boat operators on Lake Taupo, it was free to list your business, and the website took a commission of all bookings made.
Making a name for itself as a website development agency, Spider Web opens its first office in Taupo’s town centre, with a modest local client base.
Search Engine Marketing was brought on as a service, with it being recognised that, there is no point in having the best website in the world, if no one can find it in Google.
Growing in size and staff, Spider Web opens a larger office in Taupo’s town centre, still in the same building. Its brand was further developed, “Simply Smart Web Stuff”.
Gaining in market share, there was strong customer demand for a wider range of products and services, such as signage and logo development.
Spider Web is rebranded to Traff1k® and again further expands its offices in Taupo’s town centre.
Traff1k® becomes a full-service agency covering brand, design, web, search, photography and more. Traditional marketing as a service was offered in order to support digital.
Now with a large market share, perhaps 80% regionally, and again bursting at the seams, the next move was on to our new home in Taupo. Once we had settled into our new office in Taupo, the recession really started to bite in the region, while new competitors were also opening. The decision was made to open our second office, in Auckland. Auckland offered further growth opportunities for Traff1k® through existing customers, and indeed, the ability to win new customers with larger budgets.
Instrumental in the company’s growth and direction, Colin was appointed Director in 2014.
Having secured foundation clients in Australia in 2013, Traff1k® opened its first office in Sydney’s CBD in 2015.
Supporting our growth and business objectives, Traff1k® Auckland moves into a new office, this time in the Auckland’s CBD.
Hard work in Australia starts to pay off, and with a growing team, Traff1k® moves into a new, larger office.
Travelling far and wide, the Traff1k® family reunited for the first Annual Awards Ceremony – Go For Gold. Celebrating individual achievements and company triumphs, welcoming new staff members and catching up, this soirée was sensational!

With a change in vision and direction, Traff1k® and its agency model is retired.
OmniHyper® is launched, with its first two core products, HyperZone® and HyperHelium®.
