What exactly is a Cash Mob you ask?
Perhaps you have heard of “flash mobs,” where a mass of people invade a public space to make a scene. Now the idea has been turned on its head by “cash mobs,” where crowds of consumers show up to spend money at local businesses.
“Cash Mobs are part of a call-to-action to rebuild our local economy”, says Nancy Bradley, owner of NANZORIGINAL Digital Branding & Online Marketing Agency and spokesperson for the Rely On Local Business Campaign. “We are continually seeking out local businesses for Cash Mob hits in Charlotte and the surrounding areas” Bradley added. Fueled by social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter, local Cash Mobs are popping up all over to help boost local economy and build a sense of community.
Cash Mobs have no political or social affiliation. The events are organized by people who want to make a positive impact on local businesses and have fun while doing so. All businesses chosen to be the target of the Cash Mob are known for giving back to the community in a positive way.
