Stop Yelling into the Void: Target the Right Audience with Customer Segmentation

When clients seek our assistance in promoting their offerings, we pay close attention to a specific phrase during their strategy presentation: “Everyone loves our product!” While their enthusiasm is commendable, it begs the question: “Are you sure you’re reaching the right ears?”

Treating your target audience as one large group is a common misconception.  To ensure effective promotion, it is necessary to employ customer segmentation, breaking down the broader audience into smaller, more targeted sub-groups.

So, what exactly is customer segmentation? Imagine you have a delicious cake.  Wouldn’t you slice it differently for your health-conscious friend versus your sugar-loving cousin?   Segmentation works the same way.  We take your potential audience and divide them into smaller, bite-sized segments based on shared characteristics such as age, interests, or buying habits.

Consider a scenario where your target audience spans a wide age range. You might create one segment for individuals aged 55 and older, while placing younger people in another. Perhaps a direct mail strategy is suitable for the 55-and-older group, while a social media push is more effective for the younger crowd, such as millennials.

Technology has made segmentation a piece of cake (pun intended). From social media targeting to personalized email campaigns, reaching the right people with the right message has never been easier.
