Understanding Your Dynamic Target Market:  Experiences from Two Entrepreneurship Programs


Date & Time:
Monday, October 9, 9:45 AM - 11:00 AM

Room: Cormorant

Track: Experiential Teaching Practices & Curriculum

Level: Intermediate

Description: Understanding and correctly identifying your target market is critical to the success of any program. Your target market is dynamic, but all too often entrepreneurs are not effective in adapting correctly to the needs of their core market. When you reach out to your target market you cannot change the thoughts, impressions, or behaviors of your potential clients. You can only identify the unique circumstances, situations, and characteristics that define the groups you want to target in your marketing efforts. In this session, attendees will have the opportunity to learn target marketing principles by looking at examples of what has worked and what hasn’t from two different entrepreneurship programs – one designed for community college students and the other focusing on small businesses. Come join us for an engaging discussion and lots of insight to help your organization better identify and understand your dynamic target market.

Learning Objectives:

  • Researching and identifying your target market.
  • Challenges and approaches in effectively reaching your target market.
  • Adapting to changes in your target market.
