Target Marketing
Is Target Marketing Ever Bad?
As marketers increasingly tailor marketing programs to target market segments, some critics have denounced these efforts as exploitative. They see the preponderance of billboards advertising cigarettes and alcohol in low-income urban areas as taking advantage of a vulnerable market segment. Critics can be especially harsh in evaluating marketing programs that target African Americans and other minority groups, claiming they often employ stereotypes and inappropriate depictions. Others counter that targeting and positioning is critical to marketing and that these marketing programs are an attempt to be relevant to a certain consumer group.
Take a position: Targeting minorities is exploitative versus Targeting minorities is a sound business practice.
