   The right product, in the right place, at the right time,
    and at the right price.
   According to Kotler “Marketing is the social process by
    which individuals and organizations obtain what they
    need and want through creating and exchanging value

    includes the flow of goods and services from rural to
    urban areas and the flow of goods and services from
    urban to rural areas as well as the flow of goods and
    services within rural areas.
   A market segment is a classification of potential private
    or corporate customers by one or more characteristics,
    in order to identify groups of customers, which have
    similar needs and demand similar products or services
    concerning the recognized qualities of these products,
    e.g. functionality, price, design, etc.
   Segmentation is the process of dividing a
    heterogeneous market into several sub- markets or
    segments, each of which tends to be homogeneous in
    all significant aspects. The division is based on the
    premise, that different people have different
    preferences.

Rural market segmentation and Targeting & Rural Marketing Research

  • 1. Submitted To Submitted By Sanmeet Sidhu Arsh Koul Navpreet Manish Mehra
  • 2. The right product, in the right place, at the right time, and at the right price.  According to Kotler “Marketing is the social process by which individuals and organizations obtain what they need and want through creating and exchanging value with others”.

The division is based on the premise, that different people have different preferences.
  • 5. 1. Geographic Segmentation 2. Demographic Segmentation 3. Psychographics Segmentation 4. Behavioral Segmentation 5. Multi Attribute Segmentation
  • 6.  Segmentation on the basis of geography is done depending on various factors such as  Region: North, South, East and West. ˃ Proximity to the feeder town:  Density: The number of people per sq. km  Climate: Moderate, rain fed or dry with scanty rainfall.  Level of Irrigation: Whether good, moderate or scanty.
  • 7. Demographic segmentation calls for grouping of their demographic characteristic  It is based on the population, age group, literacy level and income of the rural consumer.
  • 8. Such segmentation which is done using variables such as Lifestyle of the people, (whether rigid, traditional or changing), Occasion, (whether on a regular day or a special occasion), Benefits sought from the product (such as Quality, Price and Service), and Loyalty to brands (whether Low, Medium or High.)
  • 9. It takes into account the specific behavior of a consumer related to occasions, benefits, user accounts etc.
  • 10. In practical terms it is very difficult for a marketer to depend on a single variable for segmenting the market. It is a complex function since it depends on multiple factors that define market dynamics. In order to identify smaller, well defined, meaningful target groups marketers use several variables.
  • 11. Untapped rural potential  6,27,000 villages across the country account for 70% of population  60% of national demand for various product categories comes from rural areas  41 million kisan Credit Card have been issued
  • 12. Once segmentation has been done the marketer needs to evaluate each segment to decide which segment to target.  Targeting involves evaluating various segments and selecting how many and which one to target.
  • 13. ASPECTS Targeting EVALUATION COVERAGE SELECTION
  • 14. While evaluating market segments two broad factors are considered 1. Overall attractiveness of each segment 2. Company’s objective and resource competencies.
  • 15. While evaluating segments in rural one should not be impressed by size alone. This is because in rural the size of market may be big but purchasing power on people in rural area is limited. Therefore the growth of rural markets for different product categories should be evaluated while targeting the market.
  • 16. Marketers should evaluate the segment opportunity with reference to their short term and long term objectives. If a company’s objective is to achieve long term sustainable sales volume by expanding its customer base then it has to go rural instead of expecting consumers to come to urban markets to purchase the products and services.
  • 17. COVERAGE Undifferentiated Concentrated Marketing Differentiated Segmentation or Targeted Marketing
  • 18. Undifferentiated Marketing takes into consideration what is common among consumers and tries to include it in offer. It majorly relies on mass distribution and mass advertising. Only one product line keeps down the cost of research and product management. Due to low cost incurred in production and distribution the company can afford to set its price low.
  • 19. Differentiated marketing strategy investigates and identifies differences between segments and tries to match the market offer to desires and expectations of each segment.  This strategy results in:-  Strong identification of company in product category.  More costs but higher sales and profitability.  More loyal consumers.
  • 20. Due to small number of consumers in each segment, targeting only one segment would spread marketing efforts thinly over a vast area. As companies invest a great deal of time, effort and money to reach rural markets, it is important that they should have a multi segment strategy rather than single segment strategy to ensure adequate returns on investment.
  • 21. In the case of single segment there is a risk of change in the preference if consumers although there is a lower risk of this in rural, as the pace of change in preference if consumers is slower. This is also known as niche marketing. EG HLL dominates the mass market in rural with a series of niche brands each aimed at small section of consumers. With brands like LUX, LIRIL etc HLL targets different consumer segment in rural market.
  • 22. Research is the guidepost to laying the foundations of a successful marketing program, it must be planned, keeping in mind what is the objective of conducting research. It must also be designed in order to get maximum inputs, on an accurate and authentic framework, in order to yield the right results.
  • 23. Marketing research is a function which links the consumer, customer and public to marketer through information. Information used to identify and define marketing opportunities and problem, generate refine and evaluate marketing actions, monitor marketing performance and improve understanding of marketing as a process.
  • 24. Rural Marketing Research Types Primary Sources Secondary Sources
  • 25. Primary data are collected especially to address a specific research objective. A variety of methods ranging from qualitative research to surveys may be employed.  Some of the sources are 1. Retail shops 2. Tea stalls 3. Schools 4. Melas 5. Influence groups
  • 26. These are the readymade sources of information that a marketer can use for his or her research. This kind of data can be collected from government publication websites, research agencies.  Some best sources from where marketer can get information are 1. Government Websites 2. Private Bodies 3. Publications
