5 Essential Criteria for Developing a Target Market Segmentation Strategy
Market segmentation is crucial to business success which is why it is practiced by most business organizations to streamline their marketing initiatives. Market segmentation is the process of dividing the target market into specific sub-segments to devise tailored marketing strategies that appeal to each group. Here’s a list of the top five essential criteria that may be useful when planning your company’s target market segmentation strategy:
Accessibility: While demarcating a market segment it is essential to consider how it can be accessed and whether it lies within the capabilities of the company. This is the most crucial criterion which cannot be overlooked as different segments respond differently to marketing strategies.
Quantifiable: It is necessary to identify the size of the market in terms of volume of sales to a certain degree of accuracy so that the strategies can be developed to suit the individual market needs.

Actionable: Every market must have a practical value such that its characteristics are easily quantifiable.
Differentiable: Defining the differences between market segments is essential to implement a marketing campaign, products, and marketing tools, without being overlapped.
