MARKET ANALYSIS

Freedom Investments LLC has already identified two distinct markets that will be focused on to meet their satisfaction. These markets have been grouped into people that earn less than $1 million and people that earn more than $1 million annually.

As a top player in the financial services industry, we don’t just specialize in providing financial advice on mutual funds and bonds like other services providers. We look for various ways our customers can become wealthy in the nearest future by spreading our services stocks, real estate, mutual funds, technology companies, etc.

Market Segmentation

Freedom Investments LLC has segmented the target market into two distinct groups based on their annual earnings.

Less Than $1 Million Annually: These are the middle-class people that are more concerned with playing safe when it comes to handling their finance. They drive average cars and own luxuries that are not too expensive in their eyes.

Because these people do not have an abundance of money to buy into investment services like real estate and federal bonds, and they are also afraid of losing their hard-earned money, we choose to provide financial services like stocks and mutual funds’ investment because they are of moderate risk.

More Than $1 Million Annually: These are elite or sometimes called the upper class in the society. They have over $1 million in liquid cash and are either top officeholders in big firms or are running a multi-million-dollar business.

These people are more concerned about the return on investment than the risks involved because they are not afraid of taking a risk. We involve these people in services like investing in real estate, oil well, gold, and silver investing, etc.

Target Market Segment Strategy

Freedom Investments LLC has chosen these market segments because that is where we have found our core interest and we have good strategies on how to satisfy both markets. These groups have the money and willingness but are ignorant of where to put their money this guarantee to come and also get a reasonable return on investment.

STRATEGY AND APPROACH TO THE MARKET

Freedom Investments will leverage its competitive edge of a customer-friendly financial service to encourage people to make wise financial decisions using the slogan, “think future, act now”.

The sales campaign will rely on metrics that indicate that no one else offers this type of service as an information source like us.
