Infographic: From the Mad Men Era to Modern Intelligent Sales Automation

Intelligent sales automation has ushered in a new Don, revolutionizing sales CRM strategies to meet 21st century expectations. In the 1960’s, Don Draper, from the popular TV show “Mad Men”, and his colleagues at a fictional advertising firm on Madison Avenue, were the center of the marketing and sales universe, controlling all channels of influence and dictating selling strategy. Today, marketing and selling is a two-way dialogue with buyers, one that includes many layers of influence.
