  • Everett Rogers is one of the best known diffusion researchers. But, diffusion has it’s history in a variety of disciplines: anthropology, rural sociology (agricultural ideas/innovations), communication, education, and of course, marketing. This pic.

(We’re not talking about M&M’s with crispies inside). How is this different from PLC? Does not include REPEAT only 1st-time use. Each segment in the curve represents a standard deviation from the adoption norm. Thus, the early and late majority EACH represent about a third of the population. Innovators: Tech enthusiasts Late Majority: Conservatives Early Adopters: Visionaries Laggarts: Skeptics Early Majority: Pragmatists

Also, on things like the social system (what the visionaries look like -- are they opinion leaders) Understanding these factors is clearly crucial to crafting the marketing mix variables: ad copy, promotion strategy, etc., but it’s also critical to understand these up front when devleoping the concept and especially the pay-back period for the financial analyses.
