Infographic Compares Mad Men Era to Today
An infographic from shopping transaction and activity research company Buysight takes a look at the differences between today's advertising culture and the one glorified on AMC's Mad Men. In a post on the Buysight blog about the infographic, the author writes, "Marketers are content creators and publishers are increasingly like agencies. Audiences, too, play an active role now, from debunking false claims to spreading the word about great brands.
Several industry experts comment on the post with Personal Life Media CEO Susan Bratton writing, "Biggest trend: The marketer as content publisher. . . Curating and creating content for search optimization and social media are now crucial components of an online marketing platform. No longer can we buy ads in someone else's content, we must be the content creators to have a voice in the digital domain, which frankly, for most brands, is where the war is won in the 21st century."
