If you are a small business doing business in Switzerland, chances are that you are doing a good job with traditional marketing, also called ‘push’ marketing. It’s referred to as ‘push’ marketing because the company pushes information towards the consumer. This push can come in many forms: advertisements in newspapers, direct marketing via sent out mailings or telemarketing campaigns.
