MARKETING SIMULATION- MANAGING SEGMENTS AND CUSTOMERS V2

 

  1. Target Customers

Based on the simulation findings, Minnesota Micromotors (MM) target customers are divided between large and small customer segments. Based on quarterly revenue, the main target customers are the large customer segment with $4,107,147 followed by small customer segment with $1,281,206. The simulation indicated that approximately 68.81% of the company’s revenues were generated from customers that placed large- volume orders while 31.19% was generated from customers placing small orders from distributors. Customers placing large orders were divided into four segments based on price sensitivity. This may be so because the company deals with hospital products which are mainly purchased by institutions in large quantities. Additionally, the main focus is on large segment customers because they purchase in large quantities thus reducing the cost of distribution. Further, Camilleria (2018) argued that no business can satisfy all customers because it may be difficult to meet the expectations of all customers. However, any business should select a target market for its focus and provide it with the quality services to increase their satisfaction levels. This is the case for MM large segment customers.
