What is Hawaii PPC Management?

The act of creating and optimizing Hawaii paid advertising campaigns is known as PPC management. However, that is an incredibly simple explanation, so let's dig a little deeper.

In order to provide professional PPC management, a paid ads agency for Hawaii should get to know your company and its goals. Since the way you approach paid advertising for a local Hawaii business is much different than how you would for an ecommerce brand, this information helps determine the next steps.

For example, local service providers in Hawaii are often only interested in qualified leads. This can be accomplished through paid advertising that drives traffic to an optimized landing page or sales funnel. If those digital assets don't yet exist, or need substantial improvement, then you could start with Google Local Service Ads or Facebook Lead Forms.

In contrast, ecommerce brands are most likely to be interested in online sales. Using paid advertising, you can drive traffic to a page optimized for products or categories. Google Shopping Campaigns might even make sense in some cases. We've even utilized sales funnels to help sell products, subscriptions, and services.

The next step in Hawaii PPC management is understanding the metrics that will be used to optimize and scale. Most Hawaii paid ads agencies will implement email collection strategies through squeeze pages or lead magnets to help increase the value of paid advertising. To better understand ad attribution and reporting, it makes sense to integrate with Wicked Reports, Triple Whale, or Northbeam. For that to make sense though, your ad spend should be over $1,000/month.

In order to be successful with paid advertising, your Hawaii business needs to use multiple strategies and marketing tools. Some of the best paid advertising services in Hawaii include:

  • Drive traffic to your digital assets (websites, sales funnels, etc) from search engines, social media channels, and third-party websites.
  • Increase revenue for your Hawaii business through qualified leads or online sales.
  • Better understand ad attribution through the integration of third-party attribution software.
  • Provide social proof with case studies, white papers, video testimonials, etc.
  • Engage users in story creation, email collection, and user generated content.
  • Place ad creatives across various ad placements and media formats to see which performs best.

How Paid Advertising Helps Hawaii Businesses

The most obvious benefit of Hawaii paid advertising is the near instant increase in traffic it provides.

The quality of your ads, landing pages, and business model will determine whether or not that traffic increase results in higher conversions.

Starting slowly is the first recommendation we give to Hawaii businesses interested in paid advertising.

Make sure you have realistic goals, a working sales funnel, and the ability to gather actionable data before diving into paid advertising or scaling your ad campaigns.

If you run into trouble getting the conversions you were expecting, don't blame Facebook or Google. The issue is often in the ad creatives, campaign settings, or sales process.

When everything comes together, paid advertising can be an invaluable addition to the digital marketing strategy of your Hawaii company. It's important to keep in mind that increased traffic does not always translate into more conversions.

Types of Paid Ads for Hawaii PPC Campaigns

There are numerous ways to run paid advertising for your Hawaii business. Hawaii has a variety of business industries that use paid ads. Let's take a look at some of the most common ones.

Local Ads in Hawaii

Local ads for your Hawaii business can be run through nearly any advertising platform. Depending on the nature of your local business in Hawaii, you may find better success in one platform versus another. It is important to try out every available option to see which works best for your needs. Let's talk about a few local advertising choices.

Google is going to offer two options.

As a first step, you can run traditional Google Adwords, possibly using their newer Performance Max campaign type. With this ad campaign type, the Google algorithm can find the best combination of headlines, images, videos, and service locations to bring you customers in Hawaii. We often use Performance Max campaigns for professional services companies in and around Hawaii, such as accountants, lawyers, dentists, and physicians.

The second option from Google, if you are in a qualifying business industry, is to check out their Local Service Ads. The Google Local Service Ads offers a pay-per-lead model, which means you get charged a flat fee for each lead the platform provides you. Plumbers, electricians, roofers, and heating installers in Hawaii often use Google Local Service Ads.

You can also target people in your local Hawaii area using Facebook Ads. The first step is to set up a campaign with ad sets restricted to Hawaii, or specific ZIP codes within Hawaii. We often rely on local Facebook Ads for all types of Hawaii business industries.

Social Ads for Hawaii Businesses

Pretty much any online ad you see on a social network site is going to qualify as a social media ad.

It's important to keep the ad creatives fresh when running social ads. The performance of your campaign will gradually decline if you do not rotate your ad creatives every couple of weeks. It might be necessary to look at weekly ad creative changes for campaigns with higher spending.

The best part of social ads is you can target audiences that have never thought of your product or service, or perhaps just aren't thinking about it now. When running search ads, that is quite the opposite since your ads are only going to show when someone is actively looking for what your Hawaii business offers.

That benefit can also be a curse though, since conversion rates are often lower when people aren't closer in the revenue funnel of making an immediate purchase.

Search Ads throughout Hawaii

You'll want to invest in search ads if you know people are looking online for the products you offer.

Some people refer to this as Hawaii Search Engine Marketing, or SEM. This is just a different way of explaining search ads, which are advertisements placed on the search results page of a search engine.

If you've been running search ads on Google for a while and have been successful at it, we suggest considering copying the campaigns over to the Bing Ads platform. As of an October 2022 study from StatCounter, about 3.57% of online users rely on Bing for their primary search engine.

Display Ads for Hawaii Businesses

You'll find display ads on all kinds of message boards, chat rooms, game lounges, news websites (sometimes even local Hawaii news stations), gossip websites, and more.

These are commonly used within the Google Ads and Bing Ads platforms.

To get started with display ads, you just need a set of ad creatives in different image sizes. It also helps to have a general idea of your target audience, but both ad platforms have their own algorithms that help you produce results from your ad spend.

Retargeting Ads for Hawaii Businesses

Not everyone is going to convert during their first experience with your Hawaii website, landing page, or sales funnel.

It is almost always recommended to set up retargeting ads to help bring people back to your website after they've had time to think through different options.

You can run retargeting ads on any ad platform, too.

Shopping Ads for Hawaii Ecommerce Companies

This type of search ad was popularized by Google Shopping Campaigns.

To get started with Google Shopping, you just need an ecommerce website, a product feed (CSV or TXT), a Google Merchant Center account, and a Google Ads account for your Hawaii storefront.

With these tools in place, you'll be able to provide Google Ads an updated list of all of your accurate product data, including the title, SKU, image, price, and availability. From there, they will be able to find the right types of search queries to display your products at the top of the search results page.

Video Ads for Hawaii Businesses

You can run video ads on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and other social networking websites.

If you are interested in running YouTube Ads, you'll just need to set up a video ads campaign in Google Ads.

To run video ads in Facebook or Instagram, you'll need a working Facebook Ads account.

Both ad platforms offer excellent conversion opportunities with video ads. We frequently use video ads to showcase product launches, custom services, personal introductions, and more!

If you have the budget to support ad creatives in video format, definitely look to implement them into your Hawaii paid advertising campaigns.

We are a team of paid advertising specialists with extensive knowledge in the latest PPC trends for Hawaii local businesses. Drive traffic and conversions to your Hawaii digital assets with our experience across dozens of industries.

Keyword Research

In the context of paid advertising, keyword research largely relates to Google Ads and Bing Ads search campaigns. After all, search ads only show up based on what is searched on Google or Bing.

For example, a person looking for a roofing company in Hawaii might search "Hawaii Roofer" on a search engine. As a paid ads manager for that Hawaii roofing company, targeting that exact phrase wouldn't require in-depth keyword research.

However, what if the exact match keyword isn't generating enough search volume and the Hawaii roofing company needs to expand their advertising reach? In order to solve the problem, keyword research would be required.

Typically, the paid ads manager will discuss with the Hawaii roofing company what types of services to target more often. It might also require some broadening of the keyword targeting.

For instance, the PPC manager might discover high search volume for "Hawaii roofing companies" or even "Hawaii roof repair." The first phrase is targeting a plural of the service in Hawaii. If the repair work is extensive, the second phrase might result in a more lucrative roof replacement project.

When building negative keyword lists, keyword research can also be beneficial. You can use these to prevent your paid ads from showing in search queries that you know won't convert.

For example, someone looking for "free roof repair companies" or "how to advertise to roofing contractors" isn't likely to purchase a roof replacement service. However, they might see your paid ads if you are using broad keyword targeting without any negative keywords like "free" or "advertise".

As you can see, no matter how obvious your keyword research needs might be at the start of building out your campaign, they become more complicated as you begin to scale your ads and reduce wasted ad spend.

Audience Research

Audience research is often mentioned as part of scaling social media ads on Facebook and Instagram in Hawaii paid advertising campaigns. Google Ads and Bing Ads also offer audience targeting options.

Let's go over a little history on audience research and targeting within the Facebook Ads platform.

In years past, Hawaii paid advertising managers relied heavily on building out their own custom audiences within Facebook. After all, one of the most attractive features of the Facebook Ads platform was the data it collected on its users, which Hawaii advertisers lined up to exploit.

The rise of data privacy and machine learning had a significant impact on custom audiences over time.

In the iOS 14.5 update, Apple included a pop-up message that allowed users to opt out of tracking for personalized ads. As a result, Facebook had difficulty tracking mobile device behavior. In fact, it even affected the accuracy of ad attribution reporting.

Then came improvements to their machine learning algorithms, which greatly diminished the need for custom audiences and lookalike audiences for most Hawaii ad agencies. Their algorithm has become so good at understanding your ideal audience that you typically do more harm than good by choosing your own interest-based targeting.

While there will still be plenty of Hawaii paid ads agencies relying on custom audiences, it is clear the trend is moving toward broad targeting. You can see it in every update within Facebook Ads Manager as they slowly remove interest-based targeting options, or push for "Advantage Detailed Targeting."

This blog article from Social Media Examiner does a good job of talking about recent changes to audience targeting, if you'd like a second opinion.

This isn't to say audience research and targeting is going away. There will always be targeting options that can be manipulated within Hawaii ad campaigns to squeeze a little extra performance.

Landing Page Optimization

The quality of your landing page will be a big factor in the success of your Hawaii paid advertising campaigns.

When we take on the management of a paid advertising campaign in Hawaii, we start by looking over the landing pages to see if they follow best practices. Here are some of the factors we look for in this review:

  • Is there a benefit-focused headline?
  • Are there any images above the fold?
  • Is the content written in a compelling manner?
  • Am I able to find a lead form right away?
  • Are the call to actions easily noticeable?
  • Does the page load quickly?
  • Is there social proof?
  • Am I able to load the page on a mobile device?

There are so many factors that come into the design and development of a quality landing page.

Please, don't spend money on Hawaii paid advertising until you have a landing page that follows best practices!

Ideally, you should never consider your landing page to be finished. Try running A/B testing every few months to continue refining your Hawaii sales pitch.

Sales Funnel Development

As an alternative to a landing page, you might want to consider building out one or more sales funnels. We rely heavily on sales funnels for lead generation, email audience building, and even online purchases.

For example, we have a client that promotes an online fitness challenge that you could even join from Hawaii. While managing their digital marketing we built multiple sales funnels within Click Funnels. Here are some of the funnels we made:

  • We used squeeze pages to help capture email addresses while building awareness for the program.
  • We used lead magnets to provide people with healthy eating tips, fitness tips, webinars, and sneak peaks in exchange for an email address.
  • We used application funnels to push people toward the idea of wanting to apply to participate in exclusive programs.
  • We used sales letter funnels to serve as the registration system for the online program.

There are many different types of funnels, so your Hawaii business isn't limited to only these options. Just keep in mind these can be incredibly helpful for gauging interest in a product or service, building out an email subscriber base, and selling a product or service online.

If you do decide to implement a funnel, take your time at it. Doing this type of work yourself can take weeks of training, whether you learn it at home by yourself or at a technical school in Hawaii. It can take years of experience to master funnels, however. You can save yourself some time by looking for a PPC management firm, like WebCitz, to handle the heavy lifting!

Conversion Rate Optimization

Having a clear understanding of your conversion rate is critical to making informed advertising decisions. The average conversion rate is between 1-3%, but that varies greatly between industries, products, and services throughout Hawaii.

Let's run through a basic scenario to help illustrate the impact of conversion rates.

  1. You sell a $100 sweatshirt in Hawaii on your website.
  2. You have a 1% conversion rate, meaning for every 100 Hawaii residents that visit your website you sell 1 sweatshirt.
  3. You have a $0.50 average cost per click (CPC), meaning for each person in Hawaii that visits your website you spend 50 cents.
  4. To sell 1 sweatshirt, you need 100 clicks from paid ads, which would cost you $50. This is known as your cost per acquisition (CPA).
  5. Your return on ad spend (ROAS) would be 2x, meaning for every dollar spent in paid ads you get two dollars in return.

For most Hawaii businesses, this return on ad spend wouldn't be acceptable unless the margins were great.

To improve the situation, you hire a paid advertising agency to modify your campaign settings, ad creatives, and landing page experience.

Let's assume those improvements bring your conversion rate up from 1% to 2%. That means for every 100 visits to your website you now sell 2 sweatshirts. This is twice the return on ad spend! You might actually be profitable now selling those sweatshirts.

Understanding your conversion rate, and knowing how to improve it, can be crucial to the management of your Hawaii paid advertising.

Ad Creation

This is potentially one of the most important aspects of a Facebook Ads account.

When you run Facebook Ads or Instagram Ads in Hawaii, you are mostly targeting a cold audience that is more interested in quickly scrolling by advertisements in favor of seeing what their friends and family are up to online.

You have to develop an understanding of how to capture someone's attention in a split second.

To do this, you need build out amazing ad creatives that make someone stop for a second and say to themselves, "wait a second, what...?"

This doesn't happen by running the same ad creative over and over and over again. Even if it is a great ad, it will eventually become stale. You have to change things up frequently, even if you are just targeting people in Hawaii.

If you don't change out your ad creatives and test new ideas, you'll suffer from what is called "ad fatigue." This is the state in which your target audience (in Hawaii and beyond) has already seen your ad so many times that they instinctively scroll by it without ever interacting with your brand.

Don't be caught in this situation. You have to understand when to pause an ad because it isn't performing as well as it once did. You have to understand when to test new ideas, especially if you are emotionally attached to an ad that you spent a lot of time making.

This is one of the benefits of working with a PPC management company that helps Hawaii businesses, since we are proponents of testing new ad creatives regularly.

Ad Attribution Consulting

Knowing your ad attribution is important. If you don't know what ad attribution is, it is the process of determining which advertisement resulted in the conversion you experienced on your Hawaii website or funnel.

You might be suffering from ad attribution issues and not even know it.

Do you rely on Facebook Ads or Google Ads to tell you which campaigns, ad sets, and ads are performing the best?

If so, you are relying on incomplete data to form critical decisions about when to turn off or scale an ad.

For Hawaii ecommerce businesses running on Shopify, we recommend you look at ad attribution companies like Triple Whale or Northbeam to get a much clearer picture of your ad attribution.

For Hawaii content-based websites, or ecommerce websites in platforms other than Shopify, check out ad attribution companies like Wicked Reports or Hyros to get a better idea for how well each of your paid advertising campaigns are doing.

Corey was absolutely amazing in helping me with my issue. He was encouraging as we worked through things that to me were huge, but he made them seem small. Will definitely use WebCitz again!!!

What can I say about this company? These people that work there? Unbelievable!! It doesn't matter when or why you call, they will help you.

WebCitz helped the Oshkosh Area Humane Society with our new website and they were great to work with. Responsive, professional and affordable. I think the biggest perk for us was having someone local we could talk to for assistance instead of long wait times. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking to start up or revamp their website.
