Seeing a SalesForce ad didn’t surprise me. What amazed me was it was on a bus stop. Not a big billboard (although I am sure they have those too), but a dingy little bus stop. The audience SalesForce is targeting is the masses, not a niche group of early adopters. This speaks volumes for the potential they see in software as a service.
