Sponsorships are enhanced-brand-recognition and promotional marketing agreements. They’re open to nearly all business types and, depending on the size of your business, require payment of annual dues or an in-kind exchange of products or services. To promote fairness and equity in business, our Sponsorship dues are on a sliding scale based on the number of employees per business. All Sponsors receive the same package and no advertisements or promotions are weighted, meaning equal viewership for all Sponsors regardless of the size of their business or organization.
Sponsoring Big Island Made is a direct and powerful investment in our community. By helping local makers, producers, and retailers to succeed, you’ll be keeping more money and tax dollars in our island economy, supporting local jobs, reducing the environmental impact of shipping foreign goods, and investing in our island’s up-and-coming entrepreneurs!
Big Island Made Sponsorships can offer exceptional value when compared with many forms of traditional advertising. Your Sponsorship status and promotions will be visible online to our rapidly-growing, Hawaiʻi-focused audience 24 hours a day for an entire year!
