Permission Marketing


Marketing centered around obtaining customer consent to receive information from a company.


Coined and popularized by Seth Godin, permission marketing is the opposite of traditional interruption marketing. Permission marketing is about building an ongoing relationship of increasing depth with customers. In the words of Seth Godin, “turning strangers into friends, and friends into customers.”

Permission marketing has been hailed as a way for marketers to succeed in a world increasingly cluttered with marketing messages.
