  • @amirakmal look for surveys that prove this or that consumer preference, to claim that this target exists and that their interests would be met by using this product/service. More technologically advanced products/services for instance would be better for early-adopters who are mostly young people. Price of the product would entail the income level, and etc..

  • @Amirakmal depends on what the product is, first of all consider what aspects would be important (age, sex, income, lifestyle) Then you can combine them, or look at the competitors for benchmark. It depends on the product and industry, whether it will suit the mass market (or meet the needs and wants of the majority) or more specifically target the niche (small groups). Start-ups try to differentiate at some point to capture niches and then grow, but on the other hand they have to on some level acquire product specifications that are widely accepted. Hope I helped :)
