What is audience segmentation

What is audience segmentation?

Audience segmentation categorizes audiences into logical groups so we can tailor our

  • Messages

  • Media Approaches

  • Service or products


Audience profile aisha

Audience Profile - Aisha

Aisha has been married for 12 years and has given birth seven times. One child died within 30 days of giving birth. She lives in Zanzibar where she washes clothes for other families. She is illiterate. She thinks her husband Ali, who is a farmer, is seeing another woman and she worries about AIDS. But Aisha is afraid to talk to him about it.


Audience profile rose

Audience Profile - Rose

Rose is newly married. She lives in Kampala with her husband Charles, a business executive in a computer firm. Rose is an accountant. She has known her husband for 3 years before marriage, and trusts him completely. He often travels to other countries in Africa and is gone for months at a time. She believes that he is faithful to her during these trips. They have never discussed HIV prevention and neither she nor her husband have ever been tested.


Audience profile new parents

Audience profile – New parents

Musa and Sarah married 5 months ago, and are expecting their first child. Sarah went for an antenatal check up and the nurse gave her an HIV test. She was negative. The nurse told her that Musa also needs to take the test. Sarah does not know how to tell Musa, without insulting him, and she assumes that he must be negative also. So, she has not spoken with him about it.


Why segment audiences

1. Limited resources

2. Trade-off between reach and intensity

3. Different people may have different information needs

Why segment audiences?


Limited resources

Limited resources may not allow us to reach everyone.

Limited resources


Trade off between reach and intensity

We cannot use the same resources we spent to increase reach to increase intensity of campaign and vice versa.

Trade-off between reach and intensity


Audience analysis

Example

  • We wish to broadcast a radio spot for a period of one month.

  • Budget = $60,000

  • Cost to air radio spot = $100/broadcast

  • Three radio stations

    • Station A - High Income

    • Station B - Middle Income

    • Station C - Low Income


Audience analysis

Case 1: Reach and Intensity (Frequency)

Reach: number

of people

Intensity:

number of

repetitions


Audience analysis

Case 1: High Reach

  • Although reach is high, frequency or intensity is low

    • Station A = $20,000 = 200 spots (high income)

    • Station B = $20,000 = 200 spots (middle income)

    • Station C = $20,000 = 200 spots (low income)


Audience analysis

Case 2: Reach and Intensity (Frequency)

Intensity

Reach


Audience analysis

Case 2: High Frequency

  • Reach is low

  • Frequency is high

    • Station A = 0 = 0 (high income)

    • Station B = 0 = 0 (middle income)

    • Station C = $60,000 = 600 spots (low income)


Different information needs

“One size may not fit all!”

A single campaign may not meet everyone’s needs.
