Description (International Segmentation, Brand, and Positioning)

Without a doubt, it would be ideal for an export enterprise to offer a tailored (or adapted) product or service to each of its clients (importers). As this is impossible, the exporter need to develop goods and/or services tailored to the different market segments.

International market segmentation is a key element of the International Marketing Plan. The global market segmentation will require a strong effort to focus the strategy in each market niche.

The main objective of the international segmentation is to improve the brand position of the product or service.

The International market segmentation allows the exporter:

  1. Product or service differentiation
  2. To manage local, regional, or international distribution
  3. To improve the communication and promotion policy for each segment

International Targeting Strategies:

  1. Concentrated strategy
  2. Differentiated strategy
  3. Product specialisation
  4. Market specialisation
  5. Full market coverage

Positioning is the process of designing an offer and enterprise image so that it occupies a distinct and valued place in the mind of the consumer.

The objective of positioning a product or a service is to make sure that it occupies a certain place in the mind of the consumer (importer), differentiating it from the competition.

Positioning a product or service consists gaining a proper meaning in the mind of the customer as to where the product or service sits in the market segment to which it belongs.

This may be achieved by the product attributes (or service) or through the international promotion policy.
