Market Segmentation by Jerry W. Market segmentation is a much broader concept, however, and it pervades the practice of business throughout the world.
What is market segmentation? That is, the members of a market segment share something in common. The purpose of segmentation is the concentration of marketing energy and force on the subdivision or the market segment to gain a competitive advantage within the segment.
Concentration of marketing energy or force is the essence of all marketing strategy, and market segmentation is the conceptual tool to help achieve this focus. Our focus is on consumer markets rather than business markets, but most of the following concepts also apply to B2B.
Geographic Segmentation This is perhaps the most common form of market segmentation, wherein companies segment the market by attacking a restricted geographic area. For example, corporations may choose to market their brands in certain countries, but not in others.
A brand could be sold only in one market, one state, or one region of the United States. Many restaurant chains focus on a limited geographic area to achieve concentration of force.
Regional differences in consumer preferences exist, and this often provides a basis for geographic specialization. For example, a company might choose to market its red-eye gravy only in the southeastern U. Likewise, a picante sauce might concentrate its distribution and advertising in the Southwest.
A chainsaw company might only market its products in areas with forests. Geographic segmentation can take many forms urban versus rural, north versus south, seacoasts versus interior, warm areas versus cold, high-humidity areas versus dry areas, high elevation versus low-elevation areas, and so on.
These examples also reveal that geographic segmentation is sometimes a surrogate for or a means to other types of segmentation. Distribution Segmentation Different markets can be reached through different channels of distribution.
This type of distributional segmentation is common, especially among small companies that grant each channel a unique brand to gain distribution within that channel. Other examples of distributional segmentation would be an upscale line of clothing sold only in expensive department stores, or a luxury hair shampoo sold only through upscale beauty salons.
Media Segmentation While not common, media segmentation is sometimes a possibility. It is based on the fact that different media tend to reach different audiences.segmentation and SWOT analysis summarizing the internal strengths and weaknesses as well as the external opportunities and threats that may impact the success of a company when marketing to Millennials through the digital marketplace.
