Number of Online Marketing Advertisers in Hawai'i increases

The number of Online Marketing Advertisers in Hawai'i increased again!


Online marketing is a great opportunity for smaller businesses to get a bigger piece of the cake. It seems, some local business owners don't want to follow the trend of online sales or online acquisition. The possibility of loosing market share in the long run, to those businesses that invest in online marketing, is very high. 


"I want Hawaiian businesses to realize what big advantages online marketing has for them. Having a website is only one small piece of the puzzle when it comes to online marketing. Business owners in  Hawai'i have to understand, that the business world is changing. It's no longer important how big your business is or how long it has been around, it's important that people find it on their mobile devices and after that find you offline. It is surviving of the fittest" said Daniel Hildebrandt. "I would love to work with more business owners on Oahu, making Honolulu the strongest online business community in the state of Hawai'i within the next years."


The actual numbers of advertisers and website publishers has increased slightly. 6,800 businesses in Hawai'i advertised or published online in 2009. In 2012 there were 8,600 local businesses using the advantages of online advertising. 


number of online advertisers in hawaii


Within the last years, the annual growth rate went down from 12,65% in 2010 to only 3,61% in 2012. Keeping in mind that the investment in online advertising around the globe is growing, we must ask  why businesses on the islands are not using online advertising to increase their sales? We at dth think, that online advertising and especially mobile advertising is a great way to advertise and actually make money, instead of just spending it.


Google has invented some great new instruments, that will help hawaiian businesses to make successful use of online advertising. 


Here are some of the numbers for Hawai'i out of the Google eCities report:

Kailua wins the Google eCity Award

Congratulations Kailua Kona !

It is supposed to be the strongest online business community in the state of Hawai'i.

The annual Google eCity Awards recognizes the strongest online business community in each state.

One could think that Honolulu would be the winner of the eCity Award in Hawai'i, but the businesses on the Big Island are more professional, when it comes to online marketing. Google found out, that Kailua Kona has the strongest online business community in the state of Hawai'i.

Speaking to business owners on Oahu I sometimes have the feeling, that they don't care so much about growing their sales, network and brand awareness through online marketing. "The tourists are coming anyways, so I don't need to invest in marketing."

Business owners in Kona obviously see this a little different. They use online advertising to reach out to the tourists and get them to their online and offline stores. 


Congratulations to the people on the Big Island for being the strongest online business community in Hawai'i!

The Google eCity Award is an annual award since 2009. It shows which city in which of the US has the highest AdWords and AdSense use. If you like to know how to increase your cities score to get better results in the next yeear, here are some of the criteria Google works with:


Each of the randomly selected businesses were then marked according to the following criteria:

  • Was it listed in an online directory (such as, (YES / NO)
  • Did it have its own website? (YES / NO)
  • Did it have a social network presence? (YES / NO)
  • Did its website allow eCommerce? (YES / NO) [Directly within the site, there must be a 
    section to purchase product / service offered]
  • Did it have a blog? [This can be a page within the company's website OR a page on a 
    blogging site e.g. Tumblr / blogspot]
  • How did the website (if it has one) score Overall score and 


If you like to know more about how Google finds what city has a strong online community, you can find out more about their criteria here.

We at dth hope, that businesses on Oahu will take greater advantage of online marketing within the next year and we would be glad to help.


Free advertising on Google Maps


Great news for local businesses!

If you like to advertise on Google Maps to get new customers to your store, you can do it for free now.


Especially in cities with a lot of tourists, advertising on Google Maps is a great way to get new customers to your offline store. Why?


Tourists look up locations on their cell phones all the time. They wan to find the next bar with happy hour, the next restaurant with Japanese food, a surf store or a car rental place. Very often they use Google maps to get directions. Google Maps is the most used app in the world as you can see in the chart from statista.


Google Maps App


Over one billion people use Google Maps every month. Most of them are searching for local businesses. Since August 8th Google shows advertisements at the bottom of the screen after a user performed a search.

When users click on an advertisement, they see additional information such as the address, the phone number or reviews. If the user saves the business information, shares the information on Google+ or starts the navigation, Google does not charge for the click on the advertisement.


Google Maps advertising



Why is it great for businesses in Hawai’i?

Millions of tourists are coming to Hawai’i every year from different locations in the world. A very common picture in the streets of Waikiki is people looking down on their cell phones, following the directions they are getting from Google Maps.
