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?

Digital wallets

The clever students at the MIT Media Lab have created Proverbial Wallets – digitally enhanced wallets designed to guide your spending habits. Using Bluetooth technology, the wallet collects your financial data and measures your spending. The wallet then swells and shrinks to reflect your bank balance. It also has the ability to lock if you reach your monthly budget.
