Who cares about your product?
What is a target market? A target market is a group of customers that has similar needs and wants, making them more receptive to your products or services. You can segment a market by different demographic characteristics, such as age, gender, ethnicity, education level and income. Target markets are also segmented by their product usage and the number of times they buy a product or service in a given time period. There are four types of market segmentation: demographic segmentation, geographic segmentation, psychographic segmentation and behavioral segmentation.
Why should they care?
Marketing can feel like a daunting task, but the more you do it the easier it will become. And when you know what you’re talking about, your customers can sense that too. It’s not enough to just have a good idea and jump in – you need to know what your target market wants and needs. And that’s where target market segmentation comes in. Demographic segmentation, geographic segmentation, psychographic segmentation, and behavioral segmentation are all types of segmentation. And no matter which one you choose they will all help bring clarity to who is your target market and what type of marketing tactic works best for them.

Why should they trust you?
Customers trust is key to any business success, and in order to have a successful business, you have to find your target market. Each type of market segmentation has its own advantages and disadvantages that make it great for different purposes. Target markets are made up of those customers who meet the criteria of the targeted group by which they are being targeted so that their needs may be better met through targeted products or services offered to them specifically.
