Ideas need to be simple. People are bombarded with roughly 400 messages daily from billboards, television commercials, Internet advertisement, etc., and the brain filters out an enormous amount of that information.

Ideas also need to be repeatable. If a person can latch onto an idea and repeat to someone else with relative ease than it has a better chance of spreading throughout a large group of people.
