PODCAST >> Carrotmob Dangles Money for Businesses That Embrace Change

Jan 21, 2013 3:15 PM ET

On today's show, Megan and Joe talk to Alex Gold, Director of Partnerships at Carrotmob, about the power of buycotts - campaigns in which a group of people offer to spend their money to support a business. In return, the business agrees to make an improvement that the people care about. Buycotts are an interesting idea, and Alex explains how they are being used with by consumer goods companies such as Unilever. Are you tired of the threats and attacks that often precede any kind of meaningful change? Carrotmob is proposing a new model based  on incentives and money. A "carrot" instead of a "stick"! Tune in now!
