The best of non-profit advertising and marketing for social causes

In a boycott, everyone loses; in a Carrotmob, everyone wins

In a boycott, everyone loses; in a Carrotmob, everyone wins

This is new to me and I love it: Carrotmob. It is a method of activism that leverages consumer power to make the most socially-responsible business practices also the most profitable choices. Businesses compete with one another to see who can do the most good, and then a big mob of consumers buys products in order to reward whichever business made the strongest commitment to improve the world.

It’s easier to understand if you look at an example. In the first ever Carrotmob event, a liquor store agreed to invest in upgrades that made their store more energy-efficient. In exchange, hundreds of Carrotmobbers showed up at once to support the winning liquor store.
