‘Math men’ not mad men rule advertising’s data age, says Lévy
May 5, 2019 | Financial Times | by Anna Nicolaou.

Maurice Levy: 'The future [of advertising] is based on data. It is not based on any mass media.' We know that mass media is [declining] every day,” “And if an advertising agency wants to have a future, data is absolutely indispensable.”

the advertising industry was undergoing a “metamorphosis” that required big bets.......As consumers shift attention away from pricey television commercials and towards the internet, where Facebook and Google dominate, the industry is more “math men” than mad men......In light of digital disruption Publicis, the world’s third-largest advertising agency by revenues, has made a big bet on data. In April the company made its largest acquisition with the purchase of Epsilon, a digital marketing company owned by Alliance Data Systems......Like its rivals WPP and Omnicom, Publicis is under pressure as Facebook and Google have disintermediated the traditional agency model. The two tech groups account for two-thirds of digital advertising sales in the US.....The industry has been consolidating as traditional agencies look to position themselves as data analytics gurus who can help brands target shoppers online. Last year Interpublic bought data business Acxiom for $2bn, while just last month buzzy agency Droga5 sold itself to Accenture......Despite lingering fears that an economic slowdown is looming, “the situation is much better now,”.... making the Epsilon decision easier. “The fastest-growing segment in our industry is data, technology, internet. Period. All the rest is suffering.”

Business: King of the Mad Men; Face value: Martin Sorrell
Nov 6, 2010 | The Economist. Vol. 397, Iss. 8707; pg. 81 |
Anonymous. In the long run, WPP seems to be well placed in many of the
world's fastest-growing economies, including Africa, where it has been
hired to rebrand Zain, a mobile-phone company. Only around one-third of
WPP's revenue now comes from the sort of work most people associate with
advertising; the rest is generated by a broader range of marketing
activities, such as consumer research, digital marketing, public
relations, and media planning and buying. It is a world away from the
1960s Madison Avenue advertising agency featured in "Mad Men", a hit
television drama. Sir Martin watches that too, and admits it shows that
some things remain the same in adland: "The egos, turf wars and
political incorrectness."

The Real 'Mad Men' Behind the '60s Ad Revolution - Newsweek
In her new book, Mad Men Unbuttoned: A Romp Through 1960s
America, blogger Natasha Vargas-Cooper took a look at the real men
behind the ’60s ad revolution and the cultural landscape that influenced
them. She spoke with NEWSWEEK’s Isia Jasiewicz about what Don Draper
can teach us about advertising and the media the ’60s in
America, ad men cut the fat on copy to make it about an emotional
reaction to the product. Now, sometimes you don’t even realize you’re
looking at an ad because it’s like looking at a work of art.

Christina Hendricks: A Letter to Men
April 19, 2010 | Esquire | By Christina Hendricks. The sexy
star of Mad Men — and Esquire's all-new issue devoted to women — has a
few things she'd like to get off her chest. Also, watermelon. About
ogling: The men who look, they really look. It doesn't insult us. It
doesn't faze us, really. It's just — well, it's a little infantile.
Which is ironic, isn't it? The men who constantly stare at our breasts
are never the men we're attracted to.

There are better words than beautiful. Radiant, for instance. It's an
underused word. It's a very special word. "You are radiant." Also,
enchanting, smoldering, intoxicating, charming, fetching.
