Did you know that history of advertising dates back to the Ancient Romans and Greeks? It's true. They printed their lost and found ads on papyrus for circulation.

Actually, you can even still find remnants of the birth of advertising in ancient Pompeii today. No doubt about it, we've come a very long way since then.

Now, instead of using wall paintings to promote local politicians, we have radio, television, digital, print and internet mediums to spread the word and convince our target audience that we have something they need.

This article about the history of advertising is an interesting summary of how ads evolved over centuries. Not to worry, it's not a novel, rather a "Coles Notes" type of report. It's an interesting read, well worth taking a few minutes for. You'll enjoy it and maybe even learn a little something.
