Creative Home Image and Nachos Cantina to get online business boost


Creative Home Image, a home decorations supplier in Port Augusta, South Australia ( has been awarded the title of Australia’s worst website as part of the Rescue My Site campaign, receiving $25,000 worth of digital services from KBB Digital to help boost its online presence.


Nachos Cantina, a Mexican restaurant chain in Melbourne, Victoria ( has also received $25,000, taking out the Local Legend award in the national campaign aimed to get more Aussie small businesses online.


David Chaffey, CEO of KBB Digital explained that it was not easy selecting just two major prize-winners from 10,532 entries, and guest judges David Koch (Kochie), Jodie Fox, founder of Shoes of Prey, Bradley Smith of braaap Motorcycles and Eddie Machaalani of Bigcommerce helped to make the final decision.


“Our digital team carefully reviewed every single entry and website to put together a shortlist of 12 entrants for our panel of judges to review. While we would have liked to help every single entrant, we had to select two final winners and know those who didn’t win have learnt a lot from our campaign,” Mr Chaffey said.


“It’s clear that small businesses are calling for help in the digital space. The Rescue My Site campaign has been a huge success with more than 1.2 million website visits, 1.5 million votes and an international reach spanning the USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand and Moldova!”


“This huge response reflects the increasing need and desire from small businesses to establish a strong digital presence. Through the Rescue My Site campaign, we partnered with some of the most successful online business-people to share our collective knowledge and expertise through insights, tips and advice providing support to people looking to improve their online business,” Mr Chaffey added.


Creative Home Image and Nachos Cantina will work with the KBB Digital team to review and revamp their digital presence in 2015, receiving a digital marketing strategy, brand new premium website including 12 months of support and an SEO package to a total value of $25,000.
