Appealing to a target market

Appealing to a Target Market

  • Market Segments –groups of potential customers for a company’s product or service

  • Target Market – a chosen market segment to pursue

  • Majority Fallacy – go after the segments that make up the majority of the market

    • Targeting all females is an inefficient use of marketing funds

  • Niche Market –a smaller, highly defined market segment

    • Males, age 21-25 who live in Savannah, GA and drive Subaru Foresters

  • Brand Power – specific image evoked by a brand name, usually proportional to its focus

    • Lexus: Luxury

    • Mini Cooper: Sporty

Fred age 27, earns $60K and just recently moved to the East Side of Cleveland. Fred lives in a 1 bedroom apartment with his dog, Ajax. On weekends Fred likes to mountain bike with his dog and hang out with his fiancée, Mary.

This biking trail app will enable Fred to

identify areas to go mountain biking,

and because it is ‘animal friendly’, it can

also show him maps of areas he can

ride with Ajax off leash and the

location of areas where they can both

stop to rest and get some water.

Summary conclusion

Summary/Conclusion

  • Design systems according to the users’ needs.

  • Identify your users with market segmentation and target marketing. Segment markets using demographic criteria such as age, gender, income, and so forth.

  • Pick a segment to target. Then design an appeal for that target.

  • To help focus your design, create a persona in the target market for whom you design the application.

  • Differentiate your brand by using unique names and colors.

  • Logos and fonts used in logos convey specific images and should be chosen carefully.

  • The iPhone’s four major standardized interface parts are the status bar, navigation bar, activity indicator, and tab bar.
