PDC73074 - Segmentation, Targeting and Positioning in Strategic Marketing
|Duration||13 hours online self-paced learning. Students can access the micro-credential for one year from enrolment.|
This online micro-credential will examine one of the most popular marketing models used in modern business practices. The use of the segmentation, targeting and positioning (STP) model represents a shift away from the traditional marketing model that focused on product differentiation to a deeper awareness of the consumptive behaviour of consumers. Market segmentation involves identifying the various potential target audiences for a company's product or brand. There are many ways to segment a market including segmentation according to age, gender, purchasing habits or hobbies. Market targeting involves directing and crafting a company's product or brand to a particular audience. Product positioning involves the distribution and promotion of the product to the chosen segment.
This online micro-credential provides a non-creditable micro-credential and digital badge which can be shared to your social networks and displayed in your professional portfolio.
