P2P Foundation » Blog Archive » The use of cult techniques by sharing economy brands and platforms | The Office | Scoop.it

When marketing executives at “values-led” companies try to cultivate communities around ethical consumerism, it creates a new class of problems. Much like religious cults, cult brands manipulate their customers’ emotional and psychological needs and encourage them to construct their identities and lives around the brand. The collapse of the ideal would be felt as a personal catastrophe for its community, so the brand becomes practically immune to criticism.

Is the Sharing Economy Set Up to Help or Turn a Profit When Disaster Strikes?

Is the Sharing Economy Set Up to Help or Turn a Profit When Disaster Strikes? | The Office | Scoop.it

In the middle of the night on July 31, multiple explosions caused by a gas leak ripped through Kaohsiung City in Taiwan, killing 30, injuring over 300 others and displacing over 12,000. Shortly after, Airbnb created a link under its new disaster response site allowing hosts to offer free lodging without having to pay the company service fees. A number of rooms are now listed for free in the Kaohsiung area.

 

The idea to use Airbnb for free housing came from New York City hosts who asked the company to enable them to list their apartments for free during Hurricane Sandy in 2012. Over 1,400 voluntarily turned their homes into temporary shelters after Airbnb reconfigured its site, created a Sandy relief page to help facilitate the process and waived its commission. The site was also used during other major disasters worldwide: during the flooding in the Balkans, after two strong earthquakes hit the Greek island of Kefalonia and after Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the Philippines.

 

But not all those who use these sharing economy platforms were so eager to lend a free hand during Sandy. At least one Airbnb host raised prices and Uber took advantage of increased transportation needs by turning on price surging. At the moment, a number of peer-to-peer companies like TaskRabbit and car-sharing service Getaround are formalizing their efforts to respond to disasters but these business models seem inherently more vulnerable to price gouging during emergencies because they cannot control whether individual hosts or users will share or exploit.

 

Unlike Airbnb and Uber, there were no reports of price gouging with TaskRabbit during Sandy. Its site was being used for repair and clean up; around 75 taskers worked on recovery projects with 40 percent helping small businesses get back on their feet.
