The History Of Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

The History Of Marketing [INFOGRAPHIC]

When did marketing truly begin? It’s an expansive question, but, cave paintings aside, most pundits believe it was the invention of the printing press (circa. 1450) which truly gave birth to marketing in any kind of modern sense, inasmuch as this allowed the development of everything from magazines and newspapers to business cards and posters.

From here, it’s a relatively step to direct mail, the actual use of the term “marketing” (1900s), radio and TV advertising, the birth of the internet (notably email) and, of course, online commerce, social media and mobile.

This visual from Anchor Wave Internet Solutions takes a closer look at the history of business marketing, circa 1450 to the present day.
