Marketo posted this infographic, visualizing the difference between right brain vs. left brain marketing. As they write: “Psychologists and personality theorists have long believed there to be differences between the right and the left side of the brain. The right side of your brain is responsible for creativity, while the left side handles the details and implementation. The left side is analytical while the right side is artistic.”
Frankly, the infographic feels quite dated. If you’re pure right brain or left brain marketer in today’s market environment, you will fail. Pure art with no science attached to it lacks effectiveness. Pure science with no art lacks emotion and passion. You need both sides of the brain to succeed.
