Legal fare dodging

Legal fare dodging

Launched in January, Promobilletes sells  public transportation tickets in Barcelona at discounted rates of 10 to 50 per cent thanks to sponsorship from advertisers.
As well as benefiting travellers, the brands sponsoring the tickets gain exposure on the Promobilletes website and can send personalized notes out with the tickets to travellers making purchases.
Promobilletes brings commuters respite from increasing ticket prices while giving advertisers an opportunity to generate considerable exposure.

Why it matters

Sponsorship in this case is a win-win solution, as commuters and advertisers alike reap a benefit. It’s a great strategy to demonstrate brand compromise with consumers. Can you think of ways how your brand can gain more visibility by providing a useful service to your consumers?

Power to the people

One of the biggest challenges that poor urban entrepreneurs face is lack of access to capital. Banks and financial institutions are hesitant to lend to these individuals due to credit risk and small money lenders charge almost usurious interest rates. State Bank of India has developed a unique model where small sums (sometimes as low as $100) are loaned to individuals who form ‘Self Help Groups’ that together add up to a significant corpus. The bank benefits because the default risk is spread across multiple individuals in same social circle. Additionally peer pressure helps to prevent defaults.

Rather than turning to traditional investors, he paints canvases that he later sells to finance his movie project.
