  11. Market Segmentation • Market segment – A sub group of consumers within a market in which consumers have similar characteristics. • Market Segmentation – identifying different segments within a market and targeting different products or services to them. • This approach is very normal within the business world, it requires businesses really understanding consumers and the groups within there market.

  12. Market Segmentation • What Segments of the market are the following products targeted at?

  13. Market Segmentation • Marketers need to identify different consumer groups that are most likely to buy there products. • This leads to a consumer profile, so the marketing can be more effective in terms of promotion, design and price. • Consumer profiles include – age, income level, location, gender and social class.

  14. Market Segmentation • There are three commonly used basis for segmentation • Geographic Differences • Demographic Differences • Psychographic Differences

  15. Geographic differences • Consumer tastes may vary between different areas so it may be appropriate to offer different products and market them in location specific ways. • Different countries have different cultures so some forms of advertising are not going to be acceptable in different countries. • Before entering a new market extensive research needs to be done to avoid a loss of sales from a disrespect of local laws or culture.

  16. Examples • Frank Perdue's chicken slogan, "it takes a strong man to make a tender chicken" was translated into Spanish as "it takes an aroused man to make a chicken affectionate". • The Coca-Cola name in China was first read as "Ke-kou-ke-la", meaning "Bite the wax tadpole" or "female horse stuffed with wax", depending on the dialect. Coke then researched 40,000 characters to find a phonetic equivalent "ko-ou-ko-le", translating into "happiness in the mouth".

  17. Examples • We all know about GM's Chevy Nova meaning "it won't go" in Spanish markets, but did you know that Ford had a similar problem in Brazil with the Pinto? Pinto was Brazilian slang for " tiny male genitals". Ford renamed the automobile Corcel, meaning "horse".

  20. Class System • Identify two products that each different class might buy. - Upper Class - Middle Class - Lower Middle Class - Working Class
