Have you seen local businesses appearing on web pages as advertisements? They might have used a service like Revlocal.Com. RevLocal targets potential local customers or clients online. A good example of a business that might need this help is a furniture seller. Here in Hawaii, it will be expensive to ship furniture items and usually this type of businesses targets the residents already living on the island to buy their items. I think a good number of people here likes to support Hawaii grown and manufactured items. They provide jobs for people and it helps the economy by making the money stay on the island. There has been a good exposure to these businesses through local magazines, local TV programs and trade shows.
