What is Segmentation and What Does it Offer Businesses?

Updated: Apr 20



Brands have a wide range of people they can market to but narrowing down the choices to sell to a specific type of consumer is what makes a conversion rate rise. Segmentation plays a huge role in that break down, by dividing consumers into profiles based on demographics, buying history, and geopatterns.





Demographics – One of the segment attributes that has the most variables is demographics. These variables include things such as:

  • Age

  • Gender

  • Name

  • Occupation

  • Income Level

  • Family Size

  • And More


Utilizing these details to narrow your targeted audience margin is the defining feature for a precise marketing delivery.


Buying History – Every purchase decision that a consumer makes builds an identify of who they are as a customer. The history of a consumer consists of items such as:

  • What brands they purchase

  • What products they use

  • How much they spend on specific items

  • Times of day they shop


This type of information gives brands an idea of what a consumer wants, how they want it, and when they will buy it.


Geopatterns – Every consumer leaves a series of location data through their use of mobile phones. The data gives marketers an idea of:

  • Where consumers shop

  • How often they visit brick and mortar locations

  • Which brands they prefer

  • And more!
