A push strategy involves ‘ pushing’ the product through distribution channels to the final customers. ITC adopted this strategy to increase its sell and awareness & to gainfavoritism from the kirana owners. In anticipation of the mystery shoppers, the Kirana owners kept offering ITC cigarettes to all the customers first and only upon request & insistence they sold the requested brand. ITC did thisby putting up posters in the Kiranas & used the concept of mystery shopping in case of tobacco industry. And hence they requested the shop owners to offer ITC cigarettes first to every customer & if he sold A particular target he will be qualified to enter a lucky draw and hence bumper prize.
