Assessment item 3
Length: 2000 words (without reference list and report format)
APA Reference style ( mainly use text book for the reference) - Elliott, G., Rundle-Thiele, S., & Waller, D XXXXXXXXXXMarketing (au) 3e.
For Assessment Three you are required to complete a target marketing exercise for the organisation that you work for or an organisation you are familiar with. Target marketing is the topic that you studied in Week 5, it is described and discussed in Chapter 6 of your text book, and it comprised the three sequential stages of market segmentation, market targeting and positioning. ( I have attached chapter 06 )
Please note: The organisation you choose for assessment three will be the organisation you MUST write about in assessment four so please read ahead to ensure you have made the co
ect choice before deciding on your organisation of choice.
Part A - Segmentation
Discuss the various ways an organisation can segment their audiences (i.e. using behavioural, demographics, geographic etc). Critique the relative advantages and disadvantages of each of the four segmentation variables. Support your response with various theoretical approaches used when segmenting consumer markets. Use at least two academic resources other than your text.
Part A should be approximately 1000 words and is worth 15 marks
Part B - Targeting
Define a target market. Identify and describe a primary and secondary target market for your organisation. Please use the “consumer profile” template to help present your argument, using the heading of segmentation variables as identified above. Justify your decision based on the selection criteria (see page 205 of your text book Elliott, Rundle-Thiele & Waller, XXXXXXXXXXI have attached chapter 06 including page 205)
Part B should be approximately 550 words and is worth 9 marks
Part C - Positioning
Positioning (be sure to explain concepts with theory) 
a. Identify and explain how your organisation has been positioned. Create a perceptual map to help support your response (see resources folder for a template). Evaluate this position in the marketplace (i.e. positive/negative)
. make a recommendation for a new positioning statement. Explain why you made this recommendation by linking it back to your segmentation consumer profile
Part C should be approximately 450 words and is worth 8 marks
Referencing and communication skills are important and worth 3 marks
 
Rationale
This assessment is designed so that students will:
· be able to define and describe the complexity and diversity of markets and marketing's response to it;
· be able to interpret and apply marketing concepts and models to the market place;
· be able to have skills in researching and communicating ideas about industries, markets and marketing strategy; and
· be able to analyse real-life business situations by comparing and contrasting the theoretical concepts in marketing theory

Target marketing and
marketing Target
Australian retailers have been doing it tough as they struggle to come to terms with the
challenging global economic environment, combined with the continued strong growth
of online shopping. There are conspicuous exceptions, such as the large supermarket
chains — especially Coles and Woolworths, which seem to be relatively immune from
these ‘macro- environmental’ threats. In addition, there are retailers, such as JB Hi-Fi,
whose cost structures and business models allow
them to compete successfully on price against local
and online retailers.
For many established retailers, however, the pos-
ition is less rosy. In particular, traditional depart-
ment stores such as David Jones and Myer face
a seemingly perpetual challenge to remain com-
petitive with their high cost structures, combined
with diminished levels (and public perceptions) of
customer service. In particular, the cost to provide
‘traditional’ department store customer service is
clearly prohibitive in the face of discounted prices
offered by ‘big box’ retailers like Harvey Norman
and Bing Lee, and the familiar discount department
stores like KMart and Big W.
However, even among the discount department stores, the news is not all good. Kmart
has pushed its prices down and introduced a house
and for most products. Big W and
Target have both sustained damage from this new approach. Like all retailers, Big W
was stung by discounting in the home entertainment segment, and Target is ‘viewed
