Effective market segmentation takes effort. It is not something that comes easily for any business. It requires a great deal of skilled research and effective implementation of segmentation strategies. Mindful monitoring of marketing strategy performance and adjustment to the segmentation system is also necessary to maintain the effectiveness of the strategies that have been employed.

This is the reason that marketing is a highly valued profession and on in which most businesses hire a skilled professional to manage and implement any strategies that will be employed.

For small business owners and operators, the process of implementing marketing strategies is often a task that falls squarely on their shoulders. There simply aren't the resources to hire a big marketing team to handle these functions. As such, you may be looking for ways to increase your own market performance and may see market segmentation as a means for achieving your goals.

Market segmentation is a process through which businesses identify if different market groups seem to be good ventures. It looks at whether these groups are:

• Easily identifiable
• Measurable
• Accessible
• Responsive
• Can be sustained

If you have any product that has more than one customer, then you have the potential to implement successful market segmentation strategies. Doing so means that you need to have a means of tracking your customers, identifying information about them - like their interests, how often they buy, whether they are loyal to your product, etc. You also need to be able to predict that they will remain customers and will be interested in the marketing information or new products that you try to peddle to them. One of the best ways to do this is through customer surveys and consistently strong customer service review techniques, during which you can gauge the degree of interest and loyalty your customers have for your new products and your business in general.
