Question:What are marketers talking about when they say Push vs. Pull?

Answer:"Push" tactics are typically promotions directed at re-sellers or other members of the distribution channel. Again, there are different types, including training programs, trade allowances, cooperative advertising, and the provision of point-of-purchase displays. These are intended to provide incentives to the channel to "push" a firmís product toward the customer.

A "Pull" strategy is usually advertising directed at the end consumer. It works to increase end demand, thus "pulling" a product through the distribution channel.
