[INFOGRAPHIC] A Brief History of Marketing Technology

There are a lot of infographics, blog posts, and articles on the evolution of marketing and the technology fueling it. Many start with Gutenberg’s printing press, and then cover billboards, radio advertisements, television, phone, and so on.

The graphic below tackles key points of “A Brief History of Marketing Technology,” an interactive essay that explores the evolution of marketing technology, from database marketing, to CRM, to the birth of SAAS, and beyond.
