To leave a significant impact, a Honolulu brand marketing strategy must be attuned to current events. Marketing expert David Meerman Scott calls this “newsjacking” and believes it has enough potential to make a campaign succeed when done right. For instance, what’s going on in Hawaii right now? What’s the latest from the mainland?
Upon identifying relevant developments, one must then utilize the appropriate marketing tools and strategies to boost brand exposure. Pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, where the advertiser only pays for ads every time a user clicks on the links, is one such technique. Put simply, related paid content will show up on the search results for each query on a trending topic (e.g. ice bucket challenge).
