The History And Evolution of Marketing: Exhaustive Timeline (INFOGRAPHIC)

by DiTesco

history of marketing

The folks over at HubSpot recently published this infographic and I gotta hand it to them, they did an awesome job putting this together. They must have spent an awful lot of hours researching for all the information contained in this infographic, considering the number of “sources” they provided on their official blog post. Marketing has been around for a while now and it is impressive how the methods have evolved.

Take a moment to take a look at it and after doing so, what do you think will be the next tools Marketing professionals will use next? Enjoy!

This….Is…Awesome…. This had to take forever to make. I particularly love the 1970’s with the telemarketing, the picture of the couple holding their ears is hilarious.

Awesome. When we just looks back, its so amazing how we’ve evolved. Along with the evolution of technology, the approach and reactions have changed too! But the good old methods sometimes stay evergreen for many years!

I can now understand the concept of evolution in its essence :).
But the best thing about the marketing evolution is that ancestors are still in their original form and active like tv ads, magazines, tele marketing etc they are still here
