Throwing you a good parking party
Emel - the Portuguese company that manages street parking in Lisbon - decided to celebrate the best parking practices spotted in the main streets of the city. They created a celebration around drivers that parked and paid correctly for their parking space with cheer leaders, TV cameras, a music band, etc. The videos and photos can be seen on youtube and other online social networks.
Why it matters
More than ever consumers want to be acknowledged for their actions, behaviour and adherence to best practices. How can companies and organisations take note and reward customers that display positive behaviour in more innovative and memorable ways?
BMW has begun to help people to sell and buy second-hand BMWs by promoting them on their website, Facebook and Twitter.
Fiat has launched Happy Drive, a web application that allows consumers to virtually experience the Fiat 500 in their local environment with a virtual test drive thanks to Google Street View.
