Marketo has come out with a great infographic depicting the characteristics of “Right Brain” and “Left Brain” Marketers. This insight is interesting. Traditional, pre-Internet marketers have generally been “left brain,” and even many contemporary Marketers, although they are utilizing tech tools that enhance creative productivity, still depend on a “Right Brain” approach. While this approach remains important to the firm, it is slowly and necessarily being eclipsed by Marketers who are more “Left Brain,” and as Scott Brinker (@chiefmartec) has coined, “Marketing Technologists.”
We’re going to leave you with the infographic here, but be sure to check out our post on the blog run by the Marketing Automation Institute which will expand on the “Attitude” of “Left Brain” Marketers.
