Marketing is both an “art” and a “science” there is constant tension between the formulated side of marketing and the Creative side. Marketing is a science because marketing is about understanding and influencing behaviors. Psychology, the science of behaviors, studies how people react to certain stimuli in predictable ways. This is similar to Newton's' third law - cause and effect. For every marketing action there is a reaction. The science is in anticipating the reactions to your actions. Marketing is an art because marketing is about appreciating the nuances of human behaviors. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Beauty is art.
