Sell Your Brand Story, Not Your Products

Don Draper, the show’s protagonist, is a Creative Director for various Manhattan advertising agencies throughout the show’s run, which takes place in the 1960s. Don does a lot of things well — womanizing, chain-smoking, day-drinking and best of all: pitching advertising concepts to clients. [SEE FULL POST]
