The Target customer

Market segmentation:

This approach would be more preferable for Goldsport because, “it will help target customers” (Marketing by Tony Gray (2000)) unlike mass marketing, which promotes the same product to the whole market and treat every consumer the same in terms of needs and wants.

Segmenting the market will allow the company to focus more clearly on targeting the right customers with the right product that better satisfy their needs.

There are a range of segmentations that allows a company to target potential customers effectively.
