- Back around 2000 BC Ancient Egyptians would write on papyrus to advertise their goods. Probably best compared to todays version of a flyer.
- There has even been the discovery of graffiti styled ‘Wall Posts’ revealing a potential ancient Social Network.
- During the middle ages from the 5th to the 15th century a large majority of citizens could not read. Symbols were used as signs to differentiate between shops.
It wasn’t so obvious back in the day, but marketing has always been around us and attempting to manipulate and influence us. It’s fascinating for me to see how it’s developed over time. Also, interesting to see where it will go in the future.
