2.       Niche marketing: a niche is a more narrowly defined group, typically a small market whose needs neither are nor well served. Marketers usually identify niches by dividing a segment into sub segments or buy defining a group seeking a distance mix of benefits. For example, the segment of heavy smokers includes those who are trying to stop smoking and those who do not care.

3.       Local marketing: target marketing is leading to marketing programmes being tailored to the needs and wants of the local customer groups (trading areas, neighbourhoods, even individual stores). A city bank provides different mixes services in its branches depending on the neighbourhood's demographics.

4.       Individual marketing: the ultimate level of segmentation leads to "segments of one," "customized marketing", or one to one marketing." For countries consumers were served as individuals: the tailor made the suit and the cobbler designed shoes for the individuals.
