WHAT IS A TARGET MARKET?
Identifying a Target Market helps your brand develop effective marketing communication strategies. A Target Market is a set of consumers sharing similar needs or characteristics that your brand hopes to serve, with products or services. Targeting an audience that is too large or undefined can lead to messy outcome due to an unclear direction and scattered results; a strong brand identity is unlikely to result.
HOW CAN CUSTOMER SEGMENTATION HELP?
Looking into what your competitors are doing can help you understand the population that is targeted most within your industry. As well, looking into social media trends can shed light on the audience you wish to target. By using a Target Market, you can see what works and doesn’t work to rake in capital for both your competition and apply it to your business.
MARKET RESEARCH AND DEMOGRAPHICS:
Looking into certain types of customer demographics can include understanding their gender, income level, occupation, as well as location and age. All demographics are a great way to understand what your Target Market consists of, and by understanding the difference between a young female audience versus an older male consumer base, you can make ads that strike each differently and effectively. Using a Target Market allows us to find out preferences that can be used to gain valuable and free insight. Target Market research is essential to promoting your brand effectively.

SERVICE AND PRODUCT MARKETING:

Know the benefits, the possible cons of the service or product, and expect very honest feedback from the audience you are targeting. By not only showing that you have a realistic product or service available, but by taking their feedback seriously, working towards making them happy, you are building their brand loyalty.

Some ways to maximize your businesses brand is to use video marketing, mobile advertising, social media platforms, and brand marketing.
