How Sticky is Your Nonprofit Organization? Top Notch Speaker Coming to UNF April 30th!


What do urban legends, conspiracy theories, public health scares and great advertising campaigns all have in common?  They stick!  Meaning they circulate effortlessly through our culture and become ideas and concepts that we remember.   Brothers, Chip and Dan Heath, wrote the book Made to Stick to try to help us understand that making a great idea into something worth remembering is possible and a good business decision.   

The Heaths analyzed extra-sticky ideas and stories to figure out why some ideas died while other ones thrived.  What they realized is that sticky ideas often share the following qualities:

Simple

Unexpected
Concrete Imagery
Credible
Emotion-Provoking
Stories

By using the SUCCESS approach, business owners can focus and target their communication to conquer the art of making ideas unforgettable. Consider making your business idea or message sticky. Make it understandable, memorable, and effective in changing thoughts or behaviors toward it and see what it does for your sales!
