  2. Ultimate aim of market segmentation • The aim of market segmentation is to increase sales, market share and profits • This is done by better understanding and responding to the desires of different target customers

  4. Ways of segmenting consumer markets • Demographic segmentation • Geographic segmentation • Psychographic segmentation • Behavioral segmentation

  5. Demographic segmentation • Dividing the total market according to particular features of a population such as age or gender • It is easy to measure demographics, therefore it is commonly used among marketers • Age and gender are the most common • For example coca cola targets 15-35 year old males while Fanta targets 13-16 year olds

  6. Geographic segmentation • Geographic segmentation divides the total market according to geographic locations • A business may divide the market into regions • Different geographical locations have different needs and tastes • A city size will impact location, for example a fast food chain will not open in a city with a population of 25,000 • Climate will also impact segmenting markets for a business selling heating or cooling systems

  7. Psychographic segmentation • Psychographic segmentation is the process of dividing the total according to personality • Characteristics such as motives, opinions, socioeconomic groups and lifestyle • To segment this market a business would research preferences such as TV shows, movies and music • Psychographic variables can be combined with other segmentation variables • This segmentation focuses on why people behave the way they do • This method of segmentation is difficult to measure

  8. Behavioral segmentation • Behavioral segmentation is the process of dividing the total market according to customer relationships to the product • This includes the customers knowledge of, attitude and benefits of the product • This type of segmentation identifies what the customers want from the product • By understanding what customers want from the product, marketers can design their product to satisfy the needs of their target market
