According to Lamb et al. (2018), businesses sell their products and services based on four categories of business which include  “producers (businesses or individuals that purchase a product to produce final products and services for profit),  resellers (retailers and wholesalers),  government, and  institutions (i.e., schools, churches, hospitals, clubs, foundations, and nonprofits)” (p.152).

Segmentation of a business-to-business (B2B) product is done similarly to consumer market segmentation. There are five segmentation criteria for a B2B product just as there are for consumer markets. These criteria include:
Measurable: Have measurable information about the segment (e.g., size, discretionary income, etc.).
Substantial: The segment must be large enough to warrant separate segmentation.
Accessible: The company must be able to reach the segment.
Distinguishable: The segment must act differently and respond differently than other segments.
Actionable: The company must be able to implement the target marketing mix (see the 4 Ps learning activity).
For this assignment, you will apply these five segmentation criteria addressing the following checklist items.
• Choose a B2B product that you find on the Internet (examples may be business software, printers, cell phones for business usage, company cars, etc.).
• Describe the category of business and the five segmentation criteria as they apply to this B2B product.
