Approaches to Market Segmentation - How Can the Market be Segmented?

Market segmentation market research studies for market analysis, targeting and product positioning SME's often fall victim to believing their market is significantly effected by demographics - limiting their opportunities. Segmentation makes business decision-making easy!

Too many untrained marketers fall into the demographic trap, and never truly identify segments in their market. Almost every market has only 2 to 5 segments.

Don't be wooed by psychological theory which can be dangerous for larger businesses needing to secure sustainable competitive advantage.

Market segmentation identifies consistencies in buyer behaviour...it is logical to prefer to know what a buyer does, rather than what that say they will do.

A "market" is only a corral of market segments... IF you segments well, you WILL own a every segment you want to, within a market. Let us show you how!
