Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Market Orientation This is when a business puts customers' needs at the centre of the company's decision making process. Market research and market testing are the key elements in a market led organisation. Niche Marketing This is when a product or service is aimed at a small market segment.
It can be attractive as the organisaion is able to build up expertise in one type of product or customer, can often avoid competition from large organisations as they view the small market as non profitable due to the small amount of customers. Often higher prices can be charged resulting in more profit margin per sale and it is normally associated with quality products/services.
However if the organisation becomes successful it may attract competition which would result in reduced sales and profit. There is a high risk of failure due to the small customer base. The business becomes heavily reliant on a small number of customers. Differentiated Marketing This is when a business produces a product or service to suit certain market segments.
For example some car manufactures produce different sizes of cars to suit large or small families. Industrial Markets This is where organisations purchase goods/services from each other to help them produce their own goods/services. Product Orientation This is when a business manufactures a product then tries to persuade the customer to purchase it. The company does not conduct any market research before production commences. Why do business spend large amounts of finance on market research. To anticipate changes in the market and customer tastes.

Undifferentiated Marketing This is when a business produces a product or service to suit the market as a whole. Instead of aiming for particular market segments with a variation of products or services.
For example Heinz uses undifferentiated marketing as most of its products are targeted at the majority of the population. Random Samplling This is when individuals are pre-selected from a list, perhaps the telephone directory or electoral register. The interviewer makes a number of calls to randomly chosen people from the list. It is expensive to operate as the people who have been selected must be interviewed. Stratified Random Sampling This makes a random group more representative of the population as a whole. The sample is divided up into segments based on how the population is divided up. Quota Sampling This is when a researcher interviews a specific number of individuals with particular characteristics (e.g. age, sex, income). Its the researchers job to find the people who fit into the categories required. this is cheaper than random sampling.
