Moving forward with the Cash Mob Movement

Happy Monday everyone!

With National Cash Mob Day 2013 behind us, it’s time to start looking forward to the future to other Cash Mob opportunities we can join efforts on a national or international scale!

Summer is near and it’s the perfect opportunity to come up with new and creative ways to keep support going for mom-and-pop businesses.

Have a couple of ideas that can help create a fresh approach to the cash mob movement.

Dish mob: Dish Mobs have been springing up since late last summer when Restaurant.com teamed up with cash mob organizer Andrew Samtoy. Like a cash mob, a dish mob is designed to get people to eat out mom-and-pop restaurants. We’ve had several dish mobs in Kansas City since November, and is one of the things that a community could use to fuel the shop local movement. You could take the dish mop concept a little further by choosing food things every month with your mob. For example, you could mob a food truck one month and maybe Bob a steak restaurant another month. Possibilities of combinations are endless.

Farmers market mob: I know there have been a few farmers market mobs, but farmers market week is August 4-10. Most farmers markets do pretty well, but in our quest to keep things local I think it would be a great idea to form a mob to go to a farmers market on a Saturday and help our local farmers. I would definitely like to see a national push during this week to create a frenzy with mobbing farmers markets.

Outdoor events Mobs: There are many mom-and-pop outdoor event places but I could use business. I like it would be great for a little creativity during the summer too. Mob at some of these locations such as family-owned swimming pools, Rec centers or sporting areas.

Those are just some of the ideas that I have. I’m curious to know what ideas you have as far as creative cash mobs. Leave your comments below!

  1. We do dish mobs, but we just call them cash mobs too. I suppose the next time we do one, we could call it a dish mob. In January we did a mob at a bowling lane, which is an activity mob, not necessarily an outdoor event mob. Thanks for the creativity Burton! Have you written a post about your ideas for the giveaways? I really like those too.
