Gr8PortlandME Connects People to Benefit Local Business
Gr8PortlandME creates community through connecting people online with bricks and mortar businesses. Take a look at the video produced by Snailfish Productions, of the Cash Mob on May 31st, to see how the event brings online social media communities to life.
Gr8PortlandME is facilitating real community building at these events.
- Each of the businesses mobbed has “paid it forward” by promoting the next Cash Mob and showing up to participate.
- Social connections being made by people meeting for the first time or reconnecting after years is amazing.
- After Mob gatherings allow for more personal connections between participants.
- Participants inevitably bring more new people to the next event.
All the Cash Mobs to date have generated over $4000 in business to all the businesses involved from the retail to the restaurants.
