Why Target Market Research is Important
Market research plays two important roles in your online marketing strategy:
- Attracting the right customers
- Remaining attractive over your competition
Using Market Research to Attract the Right Customers
In today’s fast-paced, technology-driven market, consumers are overwhelmed with information. While Traditionals (age 70+) and Boomers (ages 51-69) may still prefer to “shop around” to compare products/services for the best value; the most research the Gen-X’ers (age 37-50) and Millenials (ages 15-36) is reading the reviews of others 5 minutes before making their decision to buy. Because of this varied focus, you – the merchant – has to be extremely targeted on your message to make sure it speaks directly to the specific needs/desires of your audience. To develop web content that has the right targeted focus, you have to do some market research to get to know your market, what their desires are, and how and where they are searching for solutions. We specialize in market analysis and can help you gather the information you need to create an effective marketing strategy for your business, promotion or product launch.
Using Market Research to Stay Ahead of the Competition
While the internet and having an effective website design can help open opportunities for your business; it also means your potential customers have a broader selection of solutions to choose from when making a purchase decision. In order to stay competitive, you need to be alert of what your competition is doing so you don’t fall behind making them an easy choice for your audience either through online search and social media or promotions and offers. Having an effective marketing strategy is important; but being alert of what your competition is where you want to start. We specialize in market analysis and can help you target a specific market in a way that attracts them to your business time and time again.
