The three characteristics of an epidemic

    • Contagiousness
    • Little causes have big effects (cumulative impact)
    • Change happens in one dramatic moment – aka the ‘Tipping Point’
  • Ideas, products, messages and behaviors spread like viruses do!
slide3

The three characteristics of an epidemic

  • The best way to understand the emergence of
  • New fashion trends
  • The sudden uptake of new technology
  • Phenomena of word of mouth advertising
  • Social marketing and bookmarking on the Internet
  • is to think of them as ‘Epidemics’!
slide4

Three rules of the tipping point

  • The law of the few
  • The stickiness factor
  • The Power of context
  • Offer a way of making sense of epidemics
slide5

The Law of the Few

  • The 80/20 Principal
  • Social epidemics are heavily dependent on the involvement of people with a particular and rare set of social gifts.
  • Connectors
  • Mavens
  • Sales People
slide6

The Law of the Few

The tale of Paul Revere’s Ride August 18th 1775 -The beginning of the American War for Independence

Why was he remembered and the other riders forgotten and why was he responsible for the most effective word of mouth campaign in history?

slide7

Connectors

  • People with the talent of making friends and acquaintances
  • Occupy many different worlds and sub cultures and niches
  • Masters of the weak tie a friendly yet casual social connection
  • Collect people personal information and enjoy putting people in touch with each other
  • Their importance is a function of the kinds of people they know.
  • But how do connectors get their information normally?
slide8

Market Mavens

  • Accumulators of knowledge: information brokers and experts
  • Passionate about sharing that knowledge and wanting to help
  • Have the power and credibility to provide the right kind of advice that provokes reactions in people
  • But Mavens are not good at persuading people to take up ideas!
slide9

Sales People

  • “What separates a great sales man from an average one is the number and quality of answers they have to the objections commonly raised by potential clients.” – is this the only factor?
  • Persuaders, charismatic people with powerful negotiation skills based on
  • energy,
  • enthusiasm,
  • charm
  • likeability
  • very, very powerful optimism
  • something else
slide10

Sales People

  • “An indefinable trait that goes beyond what they say, that makes others want to agree with them.”
  • The power of human expressions and conversational rhythms
  • Motor mimicracy: unconscious imitation
  • The ability to infect each other with our emotions
  • Falling into physical and conversational harmony
  • Good sales people dictate the terms of this interaction.
slide11

The Law of the Few

  • The power of collaboration between these personality types
  • Connectors
  • Mavens
  • Sales People
  • Paul Revere’s word of mouth epidemic!
slide12

The Stickiness Factor

  • The specific content of a message that makes it
  • Memorable
  • Creates impact.
  • Turning information into personal and practical advice to become memorable i.e. the tetanus experiment
  • Use of a narrative style to help tell a story increases the stickiness of a concept
  • “Measuring viewing behavior is as easy as simply observing how people look at your information.”
slide13

The Power of Context

“The immediate context of your behavior is more important in guiding your actions than the content of your thoughts”

Fundamental Attribute Error

Diffusion of innovation theory (draw)

Other examples

slide14

Conclusions

Law of the Few: In releasing your communications concentrate your energy and time on involving those important people or media. They will do the work for you i.e. optimize for Google not MSN or Yahoo

The Stickiness Factor: think about how you personalize your communication to make it memorable and create impact i.e. speak to people on a social level by providing information that is helpful to make your ideas a social experience!

The Power of Context: remember the power of the group, and be clear with your meanings by understanding the context of the people you are communicating to.

slide15

Conclusions

The key to learning and improvement is performance measurement:

“Those who are successful at creating social epidemics do not just do what they think is right, they deliberately test their intuitions”

Remember “We are actually powerfully influenced by our surroundings, our immediate context, and the personalities of those around us.”

The slightest push in the right direction can cause a tip no matter how stayed or change resistant the culture.
