LET US HELP YOU
The wedding industry is such a unique market, as the audience continuously changes. The bride and groom engage in HBG Wedding Style from the day they get engaged to the day they write their last thank you note, a period of about 3 to 18 months. The happy couple will then begin referring the outstanding vendors used to make their wedding happen to their friends. Because the market is constantly changing, it is absolutely vital for wedding businesses to remain relevant and have a strong presence in the wedding industry. This assures that a business establishes credibility in the minds of its targeted consumers.  Advertising in HBG Wedding Style is an excellent way to build credibility with our loyal readership base, as well as market your product or service directly to your target readership base. 

MORE THAN JUST PRINT
Skeptical of print advertising because of the wide use of the internet? Despite the ability for internet advertisements to reach a larger readership base, internet advertisements are not as effective as print advertisements in terms of its ability to target a specialized demographic readership base, such as those planning a wedding in Hawaii. Just because an individual comes across an internet advertisement, doesn’t mean he/she is interested in the product or service being advertised. However, an ad placed in a target-specific magazine, like HBG Wedding Style, ismarketed directly to the target readership base; those planning a wedding in Hawaii.  

In addition, a reader who comes across an internet advertisement on a website that he/she is not familiar with, is less likely to trust the product or service being advertised.  Magazines, such as Hawaii Bride & Groom, build loyal readership bases, who trust the publication and therefore feel that the products or services being advertised in the magazine are credible.  Further, a product or service advertised in a prestigious magazine, like HBG Wedding Style, becomes equated to the magazine’s reputation.

Magazines also offer companies the opportunity to advertise using high quality, glossy and colorful ads, appealing and attracting readers to their product or service. The ad space in magazines also provide for more intricate and alluring layouts, allowing for more creative freedom when designing eye catching layouts.
