Find Advertising, Marketing and PR expertise in Solomon Islands
- Industry media
There is no significant advertising or marketing consultancy industry per se in the Solomon Islands. However, small firms that offer these services can be found in the larger urban centres. Most firms also conduct advertising, marketing and PR operations in house.
The marketing and export division of the Ministry of Commerce, Industries, Labour and Immigration oversees the sector.
Online and newspaper advertising space can be purchased from the country’s various newspaper publishers.
In terms of broadcast media, local and national commercial radio stations offer a key way of reaching the sometimes remote population. However television does not yet have this power due to the lack of national television channels and technological difficulties.
Social media advertising is of growing significance in the Solomon Islands. Although overall Facebook uptake declined in the latter six months of 2012 it maintained steady growth from August to November of that year. Local businesses are starting to use Facebook as an advertising tool and client interface.
