The majority of people in business will tell you that knowing your customer is one of the most important things you can do to be successful. Of course, this is much easier said than done, and many businesses open without ever having a clear picture of who they are selling to. Without full knowledge of the marketplace and the consumer base in a specific area, it is only a matter of time before most companies will fail.
Target marketing allows you to get an idea of who you should be trying to sell to. It will also help you develop the most effective strategies for reaching them. However, most target marketing available today focuses on very basic aspects of a population, such as age and race. While this is often important information to obtain, it does not do nearly enough to help you make effective marketing and business decisions.
The marketplace is far more diverse than it has ever been, and consumers do not break down along the same lines as they did in the past. It requires target marketing that is thorough and nuanced to fully understand the marketplace. You have to be able to study trends and make accurate projections, and the only way to do that is to be able to fully study the past and the present.
