Target Market Selection
How to select the Target Market ?
It is essential for the organizations or marketers to identify the set of people whom they want to target ?. Marketers must understand the needs and expectations of the individuals to create its target market.
The target audience must have similar needs, interests and expectations.
Similar products and brands should entice the individuals comprising the target market.
Same taglines and advertisements attract the attention of the target audience and prompt them to buy.
To select a target market, it is essential for the organizations to study the following factors:
Always remember you would never be successful if you try to impress everyone. Be specific
Identify individuals who show similar characteristics. Put them in one group to create target market within a broad market.
Let us go through the below example:
Why do people use soaps ?
Some would use it to fight germs and infections
Some for a fair and spotless skin
In the above case the product is same but the needs of the individuals are different. Consumers have different reasons as to why they use soaps.
Target Audience 1
Against body odour - Soaps with a strong and lasting fragrance.
Target Audience 2
To fight germs and infections - Soaps with medicinal properties
Target Audience 3
For a whiter skin - Soaps which improve the skin tone of individuals.
Target Audience 4
For a younger looking skin - Soaps which help get rid of wrinkles and fine lines of ageing
Individuals with identical requirements form the target audience. A 20 year old girl cant be targeted along with someone who is 50 years old.
Online matrimony sites target young individuals aspiring to get married. The organizations strive hard to fulfil their expectations by providing suitable matches.
Other important factors like climatic conditions and geographical locations also play an important role in deciding the target market.
Deodorants and perfumes sell like hot cakes in humid and warm places.
