Chapter 08 Segmentation, Targeting, and Positioning True / False Questions 1. When a marketer adjusts the marketing mix to give customers a clear, distinctive understanding of what the product does, the marketer is engaging in psychographic segmentation. True False 2. For products like pencils and paperclips, marketers should probably use an undifferentiated targeting strategy. True False 3. When deciding how to promote his new medical oncology center, Dr. Jones decided that he did not need to throw a large grand opening reception. Instead, he promoted the center to the internal medicine doctors in the area, who were the doctors most likely to refer patients to the center. Dr. Jones was engaged in a concentrated targeting strategy. True False 4. It would be logical for bathing suit marketers to use geographic segmentation. True False 5. NASCAR redirected its marketing efforts when a survey indicated that almost 50 percent of its fans were female. This is an example of psychographic segmentation. True False 6.

Automobile manufacturers could build cars specially designed for very tall people, but it is likely that this segment is not substantial. True False 14.

For this reason, a segment in which many consumers could not read would be considered unattractive because the consumers would not be responsive. True False 15. A company that sells only multigrain, low calorie bread should use an undifferentiated targeting strategy. True False Multiple Choice Questions

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
