Why Psychographic Data is Crucial in Times of Crisis
Published on : Nov-2022
The crisis has left businesses with no options, but to drop the conventional methods of marketing and adapt to new as well as emerging trends, or be at the risk of being left behind.
Psychographic data is the information about the actions of an individual, such as beliefs, activities, preferences and views, used to create a profile of how an individual perceives the world, the issues that affect them, and what causes or motivates them to behave in a certain way. It builds a complete picture of the target markets, coupled with demographic analysis, and offers valuable insights as to when and how to reach them. The rationale behind this marketing technique is that demographic is a blunt tool that can be honed by identifying various traits of personality.

They may also use this data to determine which influencers have the maximum reach to peddle a new e-product with their ideal customer. But the current crisis has led to the slashing of the demand for several brands.
