Actionable Do:

  • To spread an idea, you must make sure it sticks first. It has to be something special, catchy, unique, and remarkable to cut through the market noise.
  • Keep the group smaller than 150 if the goal is to effectively spread a message.


  • The spread of ideas has a similar behavior to spread of epidemics.
  • The tipping point is when ideas spread from an initial niche user base into the mass majority.
  • A select few types of people are generally responsible for ideas to spread: Connectors, Salesman, and Mavens.
