Sales-based incentives offer higher return on investment than advertising »

In August, we ran two different sales campaigns to promote the sale of clean energy technologies in Eastern Indonesia. One campaign was a newspaper advertisement, in which a photo of solar lights was featured in a local newspaper directing readers to a location where the technology could be purchased. The other campaign gave additional financial incentives to a network of 244 sales agents and enrolled the high sellers in a competition to win a motorbike.

MEASURING EFFECTIVENESS: KOPERNIK'S M&E INSIGHTS FROM LAST MILE COMMUNITIES IN INDONESIA »

At the beginning of this year, Kopernik introduced a new series of projects called ‘experimentation projects’ as part of our commitment to find what works to reduce poverty in the last mile. The nature of experimentation is characterized by trial and error, an approach of “try, fail, learn, repeat”. However, this leads to a fundamental question; When failure is part of the process, how do we measure our effectiveness?

Adopting R&D principles in the social sector »

In our work at Kopernik, we’re seeing a lot of promise in applying research and development (R&D) approaches - well-established in private sector best practices – to improve our programs and find what really works to reduce poverty. Our lean experimentation methods focus on rapid, small-scale testing of ideas and products to determine their viability prior to investing large amounts of money, effort and time into widespread implementation.
