Market & Target Audience Research
Target Audience Research as per your market is an integral part of digital personality and digital transformation process. If you don’t know your customers, whom you are going to market, to whom are you going to sell the product.
A target audience is defined primarily by gender and age range. Additional elements may include:
- Socioeconomic status
- Rural or urban
- Family status
- Level of education
- Special interests
These interests can include anything from political leanings to religion or the particular subject matter of the product, such as football (Mike Bassett: England Manager), visual art (Pollock) and human rights (Hotel Rwanda).
Few questions that needs to be answered are.
- Where does my audience hang out online?
- What is their biggest gripe at work?
- What sort of content or article do they most enjoy reading?
Some Questions Might Be:
- What do people most often misunderstand about the product?
- What level of technical knowledge do people typically have?
- What causes people most frustration?
- What do people generally like about the company or product?
