Our Advertising & Marketing Services

Native Advertising

Tile Advertisements

  • Tiles are designed to natively integrate with the surrounding content, which helps to more naturally promote your related services.
  • Tiles include a main image, title heading, call to action button and may include other relevant information.
  • Tiles can send visitors directly to your website (or reservation system).
  • Your Tiles will show up in related Hawaii search queries that visitors enter when looking for services offered by your company.
  • Tiles can also display award information and other additional details to visitors searching for your services.

Pricing & Details - We offer clients the opportunity to utilized our native Tile Advertisement placements by creating targeted/relevant links from specific high-quality content pages. The billing rate that is used for each campaign is determined by the type of business and demand for that category on GoUS Hawaii.

For CPC-only campaigns, each client can set their maximum monthly budget (minimum budget of $250 required) based on the quoted CPC rate. No long term commitment required; 30-days notice to cancel any CPC-only campaign.

More often, we suggest clients consider utilizing native Tile Advertisements alongside a dedicated business landing page, where pricing is discounted and is determined as part of a complete package.

Dedicated Business Landing Page

  • Your business will have its own dedicated and personalized landing page to promote your services within related section(s) of the site.
  • Your landing page will have a direct link (optionally, with follow link attributes) to your website and/or reservation website.
  • The listing must be approved by you, or another representative of your company, before going live on GuideofUS Hawaii to ensure accuracy and consistency with your brand and marketing message.
  • Live Examples: Kauai Exclusive Vacation Rentals or Valley Isle Excursions

Pricing & Details - Dedicated business listings include a $250 non-refundable set-up fee. The final listing price is determined based on the total number of listing placements and complexity of the listing itself. A lead form, photos, videos, and other options are available for business listing pages - please ask us for details. Because this is a premium service provided by our team, rates for this service begin at $3400/year with the balance due upon listing's final approval and prior to live placement on the site. Discounted rates are available for businesses who utilize multiple services with us (i.e.; bundled with Tiles, Guidelink, or Email Marketing).

Guidelink Intelligent Marketing

  • Guidelink is the unique process of pairing our visitors, at the proper stage of the travel-planning funnel, with the business services that best suit their respective needs.
  • This highly-targeted approach yields significantly greater conversion rates than traditional advertising or marketing strategies. This is because we intimately focus on each unique campaign to establish an authentic 'link' between the visitor and relevant services. This ultimately ensures value-driven results for our business partners, which are continuously refined through evaluation of our robust visitor network and the corresponding analytics.
  • Your company's information will be added into our Guidelink automated marketing system.
  • Guidelink will allow visitors, who indicated interest in services like those offered by your company, to immediately see your company in the corresponding results pages.

Pricing & Details - Guidelink billing is also typically included as a part of an overall client package. However, this service can be utilized stand-alone where pricing is CPC and based on demand. Each client can set their maximum monthly budget (minimum budget of $250 required) based on the quoted CPC rate. No long term commitment required; 30-days notice to cancel any Guidelink campaign.
