Top #Salespeople of All-Time – David Ogilvy

top sales people of all time

David Ogilvy is often referred to as the father of advertising and was one of the most sought after Ad-Men of his time.

His success in advertising and sales came from his ability to gather information about his consumers, treating them like human beings instead of morons. He is famously quoted as saying, “The consumer is not a moron; she is your wife.” He disliked loud, patronizing ad campaigns and believed consumers should be treated as though they are intelligent.

He listed himself as a research director, knowing that the information he could glean from consumers was priceless. He prided himself on being a creative who could not only be an original thinker, but also sell what he created.
