Dan Heath and Chip Heath show how common marketing strategies don't work nearly as well as strategies that are designed with long-term thinking in mind. The authors bring up the idea of sticky ideas, ideas that not only capture attention, but also make people want to learn more or adopt an idea or behavior.

Chip and Dan Heath studied why some ideas survive and others die in their book, Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die. Chip explained the idea of "sticky" ideas. An analogy they used was to imagine a fly stuck on the wing of a plane. The idea that sticks is when it makes more sense for the fly to stick its wings out rather than fall into the engine. When an idea is sticky, it sticks with people because it has substance, meaning, and practical value. People want to know more about sticky ideas so they can use them in their own lives.

Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die is a book written by Dan Heath and Chip Heath that outlines the power of sticky ideas. They argue that the path to success is not through marketing, but rather through messaging effectively. Through their research they discovered six steps which make certain messages more likely to stick than others. These steps are repetition, contrast, order, exclusivity, social proof and action. They also argue that these steps must be followed in order to be effective, though they do offer some guidelines on how to create a message most likely to stick.
