On the series today, we will look at a strategy of dividing potential customers who have similar characteristics into groups or segments and then focus on them. This is called segmentation. To win this war, you must have your focus.

There are different ways to achieve segmentation. It could be based on regions or age or personality/lifestyle or attitude. You must ensure that ur chosen segment is identifiable, different & profitable. The most important thing for every business is profitability.

The profitability of each region differs and your strategy might be to focus on a particular region and therefore deploy your resources towards that. You must understand the needs of that region and how they behave as working towards this will give you a competitive edge.

Products sold to this region must be tailored towards their taste preferences. Advertisement and promotions must also be tailored to their culture & bias. Some brands have done this by focusing on a region yet they are the leading brand in their category nationwide.
