1 Early Adopters https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

2 Real-time marketing Unrealized promise 1 In some respects, these early real-time marketing customer implementations were ahead of their time despite acknowledged revenue realization within the early adopters. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

3 Behavioral targeting Onsite Behavioral Targeting 1 The early adopters of this technology/philosophy were editorial sites such as HotWired, online advertising with leading online ad servers, retail or other e- commerce website as a technique for increasing the relevance of product offers and promotions on a visitor by visitor basis https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

4 Six Sigma Doctrine 1 Six Sigma is a registered service mark and trademark of Motorola Inc. As of 2006 Motorola reported over US$17 billion in savings from Six Sigma. Other early adopters of Six Sigma who achieved well-publicized success include Honeywell (previously known as AlliedSignal) and General Electric, where Jack Welch introduced the method. By the late 1990s, about two-thirds of the Fortune 500 organizations had begun Six Sigma initiatives with the aim of reducing costs and improving quality. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

5 JMP (statistical software) History 1 JMP was developed in the 1980s by John Sall and a team of developers to make use of the graphical user interface introduced by the 1984 Apple Macintosh. It originally stood for “John’s Macintosh Project” and was first released in October It was used mostly by scientists and engineers for design of experiments (DOE), quality and productivity support (Six Sigma), and reliability modeling. Semiconductor manufacturers were also among JMP’s early adopters. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

6 Ancient technology - Summary 1 They were early adopters of bronze https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

7 Mobile commerce - History 1 "Profitability for device vendors and carriers hinges on high-end mobile devices and the accompanying killer applications," said Burchett. Perennial early adopters, such as the youth market, which are the least price sensitive, as well as more open to premium mobile content and applications, must also be a key target for device vendors. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

8 Mobile commerce - Memetic research 1 It also showed how products take on new life because of the mindset of the young, who tend to be early adopters of any form of social technology services. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

9 Change management - History 1 The scientific study of hybrid corn seed adoption led to the commonly known groupings of types of people: Innovators, Early Adopters, Early Majority, Late Majority and Laggards. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

10 Diffusion of innovations 1 The categories of adopters are: innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards (Rogers 1962, p https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

11 Diffusion of innovations - Rate of Adoption 1 Also, injecting an innovation into a group of individuals who would readily use said technology, and provide positive reactions and benefits for early adopters of an innovation. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

12 Diffusion of innovations - Adopter categories 1 The categories of adopters are: innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards (Rogers 1962, p https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

13 Diffusion of innovations - Adopter categories 1 Early adopters are typically younger in age, have a higher social status, have more financial lucidity, advanced education, and are more socially forward than late adopters https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

14 Diffusion of innovations - Adopter categories 1 Early MajorityIndividuals in this category adopt an innovation after a varying degree of time. This time of adoption is significantly longer than the innovators and early adopters. Early Majority tend to be slower in the adoption process, have above average social status, contact with early adopters, and seldom hold positions of opinion leadership in a system (Rogers th ed, p. 283) https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

15 Social network - Diffusion of innovations 1 Diffusion of ideas and innovations studies focus on the spread and use of ideas from one actor to another or one culture and another. This line of research seeks to explain why some become "early adopters" of ideas and innovations, and links social network structure with facilitating or impeding the spread of an innovation. https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

16 Evan Williams (entrepreneur) - Medium 1 On September 25, 2012, Williams and Stone created a publishing platform called Medium (at Medium.com). It was initially available only to early adopters, but was opened to the public in https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

17 Diffusion (business) - Theories 1 Early adopters – social leaders, popular, educateds; https://store.theartofservice.com/the-early-adopters-toolkit.html

28 Technology adoption lifecycle 1 The process of adoption over time is typically illustrated as a classical normal distribution or "bell curve."
