Target Market
The target market for the MediMinder unit will be male and female elderly consumers, ages 55 – 65 of all ethnic backgrounds as well as educated professionals, $45,000 + annual income, and family-oriented. The elderly consumer will be concerned about maintaining their health and tend to be very budget conscious as they are on a fixed income. Their family members will be of average to higher income and concerned about the wellbeing of their aging friends and/or family members. “Baby-boomers” caring for aging parents will be a high focus market as well. They wish to promote independent living; however they want to have an added measure of peace of mind since they will not be present to monitor medication refills or dose reminders first hand. Growing older and worrying about healthcare affects everyone and is always of concern so there are no limits geographically for the sale of the MediMinder. The benefits it offers are not fixed on one specific location which makes it highly marketable for our targeted consumers.
