How do you connect customers to the local business community?
We’re hyper-focused on connecting our small business community with a global audience. We spotlight our beloved vendors on our website and social media pages. Our quick synopses can never do justice to the work they put into their products, but we are passionate about empowering local business owners to achieve success.
How do you attract customers to your business?
We want to extend far beyond just a site. We’re not just a marketplace. We support local business owners located in Hawaii and use our social media platforms and our mobile app to get the word out of supporting local businesses. We also host podcast series featuring local businesses, community leaders, and influencers, produce video reviews, and add vendors.
What do you focus on?
We are a huge supporter of career building and supporting the next generation. Our college interns are our main driving force for supporting our mission, helping us run daily operations. We also focus on quality – it is our goal to prove that being locally made doesn’t mean being expensive or inferior. We vet each vendor so you know that every product here is either handmade/manufactured in Hawaii or designed locally.
