A perceptual map is a visual representation of how</p> <p>target customers view the competing alternatives in a Euclidean space which represents the market The map has the following characteristics: The axes of the map are a special set of vectors suggesting the underlying dimensions that best characterize how customers differentiate between alternatives The pair-wise distances between product alternatives directly indicate how close or far apart the products are in the minds of customers A vector on the map indicates both magnitude and direction in the Euclidean space. Vectors are usually used to geometrically denote attributes of the perceptual maps</p> <p>Perceptual Map of only Attributes</p> <p>Perceptual Map of only Products</p> <p>Both Products and Attributes</p> <p>Important Decisions Before Positioning Exercises What brands should be positioned?

You can use it to gain Customer perceptions for a new product concept. Better understanding of market structure.

Similarity Data Analysis (Multidimensional Scaling) You name the axes and infer the attributes</p> <p>Example: Pain Reliever Market</p> <p>Effectiveness: perceptions on the ability to make headache pain go away fast Gentleness: perceptions that the product would not upset ones stomach or cause heartburn</p> <p>Is there a positioning opportunity along gentleness and effectiveness?</p> <p>Which opportunity is better?</p> <p>Determine the Ideal Vector of your Segment</p> <p>Ideal vector is a fancy term for finding the importance weights (placed by consumers) of the dimensions.</p> <p>Benefit Segmentation - Positioning by Segments</p> <p>Gentleness</p> <p>Cluster 1: Age =&gt;60, Income = &lt; 30K Cluster 2: Age = $60K</p> <p>Effectiveness</p> <p>Segment-wise PositioningsGentleness TylenolIdeal for segment 1.
