Don't Miss This: LJ Webcast on Market Segmentation

Market segmentation is at the core of true marketing. It has attracted a lot of attention among libraries in the last few years. Beyond my own library, several others across the country are digging deep into understanding our customers. At a time while we remain “Open To All” we can no longer be “All Things To All People.” Market segmentation really helps to focus your efforts.

So you won’t want to miss this upcoming LJ webcast: SWOT, PEST, and More Market Segmentation Tools for Faculty and Students (sure it says “faculty and students” but if you don’t know much about this subject, start here!)

Here’s the scoop:
