Geoffrey Moore’s, Crossing the Chasm, 1991 Harper Business Essentials. Crossing the Chasm is closely related to the technology adoption lifecycle where five main segments are recognized (Everett Rogers): innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority and laggards. According to Moore, the marketer should focus on one group of customers at a time, using each group as a base for marketing to the next group. The most difficult step is making the transition between visionaries (early adopters) and pragmatists (early majority). This is the chasm that he refers to. If a successful firm can create a bandwagon effect in which enough momentum builds, then the product/Idea becomes a de facto standard. How to market AA Homeland Concept.
    • Innovators discuss theories and ideas. They base their political positions on principles and fundamentals.
    • Early Adopters discuss ideas and events. They are more practical but still value principles strongly.
    • The Early Majority discusses events and people. They may take a principled positioned but only when they feel in sync with a well-known personality.
    • The Late Majority discusses people. They are completely influenced by mass media. They will repeat talking points that are readily accepted as truth.
    • The Laggards really don’t matter from a marketing perspective as they do not represent a large group and they are extremely susceptible to majority opinion. (Tenth Amendment Center) Diffusion of innovations is a theory that seeks to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread through cultures. Everett Rogers, Diffusion of Innovation, 1962. Rogers proposes that four main elements influence the spread of a new idea: the innovation itself, communication channels, time, and a social system. This process relies heavily on human capital. The innovation must be widely adopted in order to self-sustain. Within the rate of adoption, there is a point at which an innovation reaches critical mass.
