As marketers, most of us understand the importance of identifying our target audiences BEFORE we actually begin our marketing campaigns. Ideally, these types of discovery sessions should take place before you even think about a campaign idea or strategy since the message or tactic can vary greatly depending on the audience. However, I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes it can be a little tricky to actually narrow down your target demographic(s) – especially when so many demographics seem to overlap. Baby Boomers, Seniors, Generation X, Generation Y, Millennials… the list is endless.
