Simulation: Segmenting the Ice Cream Market

Try It

We've been talking a lot about segmentation and targeting and discussing how they both work in real-life marketing. Now it's time for you to give it a try.

Remember the ice cream shop you ran in a simulation earlier in the course? We're going back to that scenario: you are an entrepreneur working to building your house-made ice cream business. This time you'll explore how to use segmentation, targeting, and the marketing mix to grow the business.

Try the simulation a few times to see how different choices lead to different outcomes. In a simulation you should take the opportunity to try out choices you think are right and some you suspect are wrong, since you can learn from both. All simulations allow unlimited attempts so you can gain experience exploring and applying the concepts.

Good luck!
