The target group is usually split up and then divided into subgroups also called segments or personas. Everybody knows Google Adwords (SEM) where it is possible to target the people who search on a particular keyword or phrase. It is up to the company to know the segment and to have insight into their behavior on the Internet. Experts typically split a personas behavior by age, since it is very average. When companies do online ad campaigns they must target the ads to the segments search behavior to frame them as accurately as possible. Therefore it is a good idea to divide the campaigns depending on what part of the target audience they are addressing and create ad text that reflects the segment. Affiliate marketing is also an area where a business can frame the target group even more precisely. The concept covers direct advertising on selected websites.
