a particular group of consumers at which a product or service is aimed
Wouldn't it be amazing if your products and services were for everyone? Unfortunately, unless you're selling ice in the Sahara desert, the odds are kind of stacked against you. In today's market it takes a lot of work to win the hearts of fickle consumers. Mainly because they are always looking for something newer, cheaper, and better.
It seems today's companies have two things in common when it comes to marketing. They want a love-at-first-sight story, and a fairytale ending; however, much like real life it takes time to build a solid relationship. Because of today's consumer expectations, businesses have bigger challenges than ever.
The goal is to introduce yourself, share your story, and form trust with your buyer. Find your market, and establish a loyal relationship with the people who will introduce you to their friends and family.
If you're still wondering about your target market, then consider the following... Let's take, for example, a child care service. If your business provides safe, fun, and affordable care for children ages 1-4, your target market is, mostly likely, working mothers. That's not to say dads and grandparents won't use your services, but the largest percentage of your customers will probably be moms. Instead of targeting everyone who has a child, you focus on the consumers who are prone to search the internet for safe, fun, and affordable child care. Pretty simple, right?
