Is income a factor for audience segmentation For any businessif you follow the traditional socio-economic stratification of customersyou will not go far today Thats because the eight socio-behavioural clusters are prevalent across all age groups and generationsall income groups and across all countries Income is no longer a key factor for purchase of mass products The world is moving towards a situation whereat any price pointthere has to be costquality and aspiration in the selling proposition Todayeven low cost products have trendy aspects Expensive luxury brands that low income groups cannot afford should not be advertised in mass areas Every brand cannot attract every socio-behaviour cluster For a brand to address all the eight socio behavioural clustersit requires a huge magnifying glass It has to unearth the customer behavioural clusters and drive strategic planning accordingly There will be immense pressure from low cost trendy brands that every one finds affordable

Swatch watch has created in the West has been so brilliant that it enviably touches all behavioural clusters Bulldozing per capital consumption: In developed countriesthe consuming base is smallso

vast cultural differences of customers In Indiafrom one joint family structure there are now seven different living conditions there are bachelors living aloneyoung couplesnuclear family with childreneither with only the husband working or both husband and wife workingthe joint and neo-joint families and retired couples Family size cues the quantity and size of the productclarifies stock keeping unit size for efficient supply chain managementindicates the price band and sharpens the inventory It gives an idea of what products to bundle as special offershelps to maximise space at the retail as per the catchment requirementand provides high proximity to different family size buyers and the retailer Experiential product research that delves into the psycho-socio-behavioural context gives the socio-behavioural dimension I have often seen researchers go to the market for validation with structured preparation Sobefore the customers even start talkingthey have already established what they want to find This is not right With a global mind framewe need to achieve local proximity to deliver extra benefit Research cannot be like the wheat pasta dough that you can put in a machine

batting great Javed Miandad is not happy with the present ranking system of the International Cricket Council even though the team has just become the number one ranked side Miandad said while he was happy that Pakistan despite the many problems it was facing as a cricket nation had topped the test ranking table the ICC needed to come out with a better system “The present system is not satisfactory as there is not a proper system to rank a team on the matches it plays on home and away basis” he said “In the existing system it is very difficult for a team to maintain its top ranking and positions change quickly” he added Miandad who played 124 Tests said he would like to see the ICC start a two-year or four-year cycle of Test matches in which all teams get to play against each other on home and away basis “How can a team be judged and ranked at the top unless it plays equal number of home and away matches” he added Pakistan grabbed the number one spot after India’s fourth Test against the West Indies was washed out at Port of Spain India became the number one Test team for a week after Australia lost their crown after being whitewashed by Sri Lanka in a three-Test series in Sri Lanka Miandad however made it clear that Pakistan captain Misbah-ul-Haq and the players deserved extra credit for becoming the number one side “Pakistan has not been able to play home matches since c2009 and they don’t have the advantage of home crowds and home conditions And to grab the top spot despite these problems is a big achievement” he said The former captain said Misbah deserved credit for this big step forward “He has kept the side united and fired up especially after the spot-fixing scandal that took place in 2010” he noted Miandad said that Pakistan’s efforts to draw the Test series in England showed that the country had plenty of cricket talent and they only needed to be spotted groomed and guided properly “The good thing is that our selectors and management didn’t tinker around with the Test side a lot and there was continuity in selection and this has now brought us positive results in England and made us the number one side” For all the latest Sports
