Push or Pull ?

“Push” or “Pull” from Yonge and Finch ?

It’s been years that push marketing is not the only advertisement strategy that businesses follow. While TV commercials, billboards, magazine ads, etc are still in effect in many marketing campaigns,  new media play a much more significant role in those campaigns every day.

While the medium can be different, the lack of interaction from the consumer side is what defines push marketing.  When a marketing message is sent through TV or radio for instance, the information is “pushed” to the consumer and theconsumer cannot have any engagement or interaction with the message but absorbing it. 

Pull marketing on the other hand puts the consumer in the position to demand and “pull” the information they need from the seller.  A forum on a new product is one of the best examples of this kind of marketing.
