Target Customer Analysis Helps a Financial Services Firm Build New Value for Themselves and Their Customers

December 5, 2022

Whether you’re about to develop a new product or looking to expand into new market segments, it is essential to identify your target customers and then devise robust business strategies to address the needs of your customers. This is crucial for business success because, without customers, your business has no chance of surviving in the long run. However, the real challenge lies in finding the right target customer groups. To do so, you need to distinguish your target market segments and the potential customers in each of these segments through target customer analysis.

Once you’ve gathered the necessary information, you can then devise a plan to address customer needs. New insights on market developments and customer needs can also help you set new prices for your products, adjust your products and services to suit your potential customers, and find out why your existing customers prefer your products and services.

What is a target customer analysis?

Most businesses today claim that their approaches and business strategies revolve around the needs of their target customer groups. But the term target customer is among the most elastic in management theory. A working definition might be that your target customer groups are the entities that are most likely to buy your products and services. This makes it crucial to find your target customers and devise strategies to address their needs. Target customer analysis uses innovative research methodologies that aim to identify and address diverse customer needs.

Our approach

Our customer intelligence experts reviewed internal and external documentation related to target customers and existing business strategies in the project’s initial phase.

The secondary market research also helped gather information related to customers in different target markets. Upon completion of both these phases, we compiled and analyzed the primary and secondary data, empowering the leadership team with access to high-quality market data and consumer insights.

In the final phase, we developed and delivered structured surveys to identify and collect information about the target customer groups. Key activities in this phase included focus group analysis, survey design and execution, identification of channels for the survey instrument, and analysis of the survey data.
