Demographics are just the first step, the second is understanding that demographics can change by channel and goal. This is where we do the heavy lifting for our clients!
We are by no means saying that identified demographics create a one size fits all customer of your product or service. But using the proper tools to establish baseline demographics allows into you to then create manageable groups, or market segments that you can formulate a strategy around. Here are some of the top demographic data you should consider researching for your company.
- Age Range – Try to keep this to a 5 year window, when understanding your demographics the more granular you can get, the better!
- Geographic Location – By identifying an ideal area to your target lives or works in allows strategists to find other locations that show similar trends based on your company to target as well.
- Gender Ratio – It’s important to know the male to female ratio as the supporting data for external activities and interests to target will change.
- Adjectives – How would you and your business describe this individual? This is important because this allows you to way their personal value proposition with yours. It also helps shape your messaging and tone in future marketing efforts with this potential client or customer.
