Type 2: Psychographic

Psychographic segmentation refers to the breakdown of customer groups based on internal, psychological characteristics that may influence their buying behaviour, including:


  • Attitudes and beliefs
  • Values
  • Personality
  • Interests
  • Social Status
  • Lifestyle

Psychographic segmentation variables allow you to dive deeper into your audience’s preferences and the motivations behind their purchase behaviour. This helps you build unique customer segments based on more descriptive characteristics related to their daily life and personality, so you can appeal directly to their values.




We’ve gathered everything you need to know in these four steps to customer segmentation research.

Ideally, you should start your customer segmentation process with preliminary research. The easiest way to do this is with a customer segmentation survey. Surveys allow you to quickly collect deep qualitative and quantitative data on your target audience.

Geographic segmentation refers to the segmentation of customers based on the region that they live and work in, and the characteristics of that location. This includes:

Reviewing the different segmentation categories can help you brainstorm what kind of questions you want to ask your audience, and how you will define or describe your segments. We recommend testing more than one type in your segmentation research.

In this step, you’ll test hypotheses and themes revealed in the exploratory study to solidify which characteristics are significant differentiators for your target segments.

Creating customer segments is an artistic process as much as it is scientific, so take your time with this step and keep an open mind when analyzing the data.

  • Use the data to identify what’s most important. Look for the variables that are the biggest differentiators, and then work your way into the details.
