  • Why did Magnetic Poetry Kit Tip? Last CampRDU I led a discussion of Sex and the Death of Advertising with a great group of barcampers. This CampRDU, I would like to share my experience with a product called Magnetic Poetry Kit (MPK), words on magnets most people put on their fridge or locker for ad hoc poetry. Magnetic Poetry Kit "tipped" a la Malcolm Gladwell's book "The Tipping Point" in the 1990's and became a huge seller. A company I co-founded helped create that tipping point, but it was unplanned and really LUCKY. Now that we are all responsible for making new ideas and products tip, I thought it would be helpful to review what happened then and identify every piece of Gladwell's Tipping Point formula. Like last time, I hope this session is interactive with lots of questions and ideas. Together, maybe we figure out how to sell our ideas and products in a marketing world changing almost too fast to keep up. I can be reached at martinsellingzoe@aol.com. See you at camp - Martin.
