Target Market Vs Target Audience: Knowing the Difference Can Be the Key to Your Success

In a previous post, How to be Successful in Affiliate Marketing, we talked a bit about target markets and how they differ from niche-markets. Well, in the same way, there’s a difference between a target market and a target audience. Surprised? Understanding this will help you to properly focus all your efforts where they are needed most.

It can also help refine and establish you as an authority in your niche and will be instrumental in how quickly you reach success.  In the end, you might discover you are better suited for, or better at reaching a particular audience within a target market.

What Is a Target Market?

  • A target market is a group of people you deliver products to. It’s a segment of a market defined by needs, behavior, ethnicity, commonalities having a distinct interest in a specific product or service.

A company will aim its marketing efforts here… e.g. a company manufacturing organic hair care products for (x) women.  * Replace “x” with any variable e.g. tall, short, orange.

What Is a Target Audience?

  • A target audience is an audience within a target market but who are specially targeted for certain factors, like; a unique feature or need that separates them from the others in the target market. For this reason, they are positioned and ready to buy.

This is done to appeal to and satisfy a specific segment (target audience) of the target market. Your marketing efforts can now be specifically geared to this audience — especially if research shows they spend a lot on products.

A Marketing Strategy That Sets You Apart

Successful Publishers, Marketers, and Advertisers use a more targeted approach when marketing products. After the tests results begin to roll in, they focus all their marketing efforts on this unique area for maximum ROI.

Ultimately, they aim for a target audience within a target market. They know that a targeted audience is more likely to purchase a product.

From the above, it’s safe to conclude that there can be a range of audiences in a given target market. This can help you to refine your focus when planning content-style and product-promotion for maximum results.

There is also another opportunity here to take advantage of. You can use this data to broaden your reach into several audiences within the same target market. Do this by matching each audience to its unique product demand.

As a niche-based business, you could specialize in offering your target audience, reviews; reports; recommendations; products and services — to capitalize on their potential spending power.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH FACEBOOK NEWS FEED SETTINGS?

Change is on the horizon. I came across an article the other day by Lucia Moses of Digiday stating that Facebook is intending a significant modification to its news feed settings, beginning as early as the next few weeks, that will unquestionably give preference to individual web content and also essentially deprioritize the business authors’ web content, in accordance with 3 authors that have actually been informed of the system in advance of the action.   facebook news feed settings

 

Those informed state that under the brand-new trial examination, Facebook advised them it will certainly prefer material that’s shared by individuals or otherwise abuzz. The reasoning goes, that Facebook thinks focusing on material that’s acted upon will certainly minimize the event of offending and also phony web content in current feeds.

 

Facebook informed them that material from credible authors will certainly additionally appear. The fear for authors is that such a technique will have the unplanned effect of harm or compromise to top quality web content due to the fact that a whole lot of reputable and informational short articles, while they might obtain views, often tend not to be shared or commented on.

 

A Facebook representative would not validate (or reject) these modifications on the document, yet, later dealt with the strategies in an article in The New York City Times. Facebook’s head of information collaborations, Campbell Brown, notified authors of the adjustments in an e-mail Friday early morning, where she recognized that the modifications will certainly “take a while to determine.”

 

Facebook has actually been taking action toward this for a long time, making tweets to intensify customers’ material while extracting spam and also clickbait. Publishers that have been informed by Facebook think this most recent step would certainly create a much more significant decrease in the business authors’ capability to get to target markets in the information feed. Though Facebook isn’t the reference resource it was for authors, it continues to be a significant resource of reference website traffic for them, just recently exceeded by Google.

 

” They’re introducing the negative results one at a time,” claimed a person that was informed by Facebook on the adjustments, including the customer material modification, Facebook likewise was prioritizing its scripted Watch programs, its significant video clip campaign, as it aims to get TELEVISION advertisement bucks. “My perception is they’re likely to relocate far from what we consider Facebook video clips.”

 

As Facebook sends them much less web traffic, authors have already begun branching out away from Facebook and promoting website traffic on various other systems such as Google, Apple News and also Twitter. An additional downgrade in the information feed is most likely to increase authors’ change in sources away from Facebook.

 

In 2015, Facebook evaluated a news-less information feed called the Explore Feed in 6 nations outside the United States, causing authors to panic as they imagined that Facebook would certainly duplicate that strategy in the United States, in spite of Facebook stating it really did not anticipate to test the approach further. Creator Mark Zuckerberg has openly recognized resultant problems with modern technology, consisting of abuse as well as misuse of the system, which has actually magnified the spread of hate-filled material and also false information.  It is feared that it has been utilized to try to affect citizens in the governmental political election. Facebook has made a variety of attempts to destroy phony information, yet their outcomes have been varied.

 

One more large decline in the news feed will not come as a shock to authors, yet it is inconsistent with Facebook’s public position concerning how it’s attempting to aid authors. That was the mentioned purpose of the year-old Facebook Journalism Project, which Facebook introduced to much excitement regarding assisting authors’ of various business categories.

 

Many will be observing what will become of Facebook news feed settings for its many users in 2018 and beyond. Join the community where education is always ahead of the curve and the competition.

 

To your amazing future,
