Disclaimer: This idea will either be pure brilliance or completely insulting.
I was driving two days ago and saw this homeless guy standing on the side of the road holding a cardboard sign. His marketing skills were weak! He didn’t look “that homeless”, the saying on the sign was hard to read and furthermore it wasn’t catchy. An idea hit me like a punch to the face.
Mass Market homeless signs!
Now hear me out on this one. A team would come up with crazy signs that are legible, funny and inspire people to give out money. They can also be location based depending on where the begging happens. The money is a profit share where the homeless person gets the sign for free and share 10-20%.
Bottomline: I am mostly joking about this idea but it could be a win-win situation for everyone. As always, if you do this idea, please just buy me a burrito:)
