IMC 2011 by ARM<br />Market Segmentation based on Demographics<br />Segmentation based on Gender<br />Brands for Males or Females<br />Can be highly effective if the other gender is also taken care of like BMW motorcycles<br />Market Segmentation<br />Market Segment is a group of individual consumers with distinct characteristics<br />Helps in identifying specific purchasing groups based on needs, attitudes and interests<br />Segmentation based on Age<br />Defining customer types as children, tweens, teens, young adults, middle aged, senior citizens<br />Segmentation based on Income<br />Spending is normally directed at 3 Categories:<br />1. Necessities 2. Sundries 3. Luxuries<br />Segmentation based on Ethnic Heritage<br />Language, Geographical linkage, Race etc.<br />For e.g. TapalMezban for Sindh, TapalTez Dum for Punjab<br />

Mostly includes younger, upwardly mobile and career oriented people<br />Usage Based Segmentation<br />Is clearly based on highest usage customers who are identified through Data bases maintained either by the company itself or through independent data providing companies.<br />Examples include Frequent Fliers on Airlines, Priority Banking Clients, Regular Hotel and Restaurant Clients with privileges <br />
