Introducing HL Ad Sharing

Hawaii Life has created an advertising-sharing program for 2017 to share advertising costs with you. Simply choose great places to advertise, produce your ads with the Create Team and Accounting will reimburse ad-sharing costs for you. Let’s create some great advertising together!

Hawai’i Life Advertising Sharing Program


  1. Contact with your advertisement info.
  2. Receive approval on the media buy and produce your ad with the Create Team.
  3. Provide with copy of media-buy invoice.


  • The cost share is the same as the commission split that you share with Hawaii Life.
  • If your split is 50/50, Hawaii Life will share 50% of the advertising media cost with you.
  • Advertising must be created or approved by the Hawaii Life Create Department.
  • This is for print and other media advertising only. This does not apply to other marketing materials. (Ie; postcards)
  • Create Department design fees apply for any custom ad creation and are not a part of the ad sharing costs. All costs for custom work will be billed to agent.
  • Company Policies and advertising standards apply.
  • Provide with copy of media buy invoice/receipt within 30 days of purchase for reimbursement. Invoices later than 30 days cannot be accepted. Reimbursement will go to you, the agent, not the publisher/media.
  • The advertising sharing program is on a trial basis though 2017.
