  4. View that classic mass of single standard product is no longer always appropriate • Emergence of using knowledge to identify market segments of differing needs • Early attempts (e.g. socio-demographic segmentation) limited by quality of knowledge generated by research • Advent of low cost powerful IT systems has permitted more effective segmentation analysis TWO

  5. Cluster analysis software permits rapid analysis of customer buying records • Discriminant function analysis to determine product benefit clusters • Advent of e-commerce has greatly increased volume of real time data concerning customer purchase behaviour • Emergence of data warehousing and data mining technology to generate new knowledge TWO

  6. Niche marketing is about using in-depth knowledge of small group of customers to satisfy their special needs • Popular strategy of smaller firms • Sometimes what starts as a niche business evolves into a global operation (e.g. Microsoft) • Data mining permitting large firms to acquire knowledge that permits entry into niches TWO

  7. Style • Early marketing theory focused on managing next transaction or sale = transactional marketing • Research in Europe (IMP Group) led to recognition that transactional marketing is “arms length relationship” • Research revealed in some markets that firms sought to build long term relationships with customers TWO
