Getting your product or service to the people who need it most is the first — and most important — priority of any business. In the past, marketers and sales teams relied on time-worn techniques, ranging from multimedia promotional campaigns to pounding the pavement. Isn't it time you took a more data-driven approach to this critical task?

Target market mapping isn't a replacement for conventional sales and marketing. Instead, it's a way of making these initiatives smarter and more effective, improving your team's productivity and ultimately delivering the bottom-line results you need to grow.

How It Works

Mapping a target market involves identifying factors common to your desired customer base and putting them in a geographic format. In doing so, you can see where you should be directing your efforts and allocate resources accordingly.

How this works in practice will be different for each business. For example, if your goal is to attract a more upscale clientele, you may wish to create a target market analysis map based on average income or home value. If you want to reach out to repeat customers, you can import your own sales data and refine it by age, sex or other demographic factors.

Why It's Useful

Target market mapping helps you drill down on the core demographics that make up your customer base. If you're an established business, it allows you to see your sales data from a new perspective and can lead to insights that will assist in creating more effective marketing campaigns in the future. If you're launching a new product or rebranding in an effort to expand your clientele, target market mapping makes the process smarter and more effective by showing you where you should direct your efforts.

Target market maps are also useful tools for presenting ideas to upper management, as they showcase sales and demographic data in a visual format that's unbiased and easy to understand. Whether you're brainstorming new ideas, planning the specifics of a campaign or soliciting buy-in from others in your organization, target market analysis maps are a vital part of any marketer's toolkit.
