Incidentally, the application of makeup on a daily basis has been feminized. Society has decided what is beautiful and pleasing to the eye. Society as a whole, however, has an unfavorable habit of pointing out insecurities in advertisements.

These certain characteristics are not necessarily quantitative issues; society has only deemed these and other facial accents less than desirable.
Because we sell hair and beauty products we will tend to look at specific customer groups and this will help us to potential sell add ons to our customers. By targeting this group can help us with giving them special offers and ultimately getting them to spend more money with us. Customers have different needs and wants and it is up to the organisation to recognise this and offer them what they require and will help us build up not only a good existing loyal customer base but help introduce new
Bus 130 Project Marketing is a social and managerial process by which individuals and groups obtain what they need and want through creating and exchanging products and value with others. One of the key steps of marketing is being able to identify and classify the potential market through different segmentation such as through demographic, geographic, psychographic, etc. The basis for segmentation of the Ulta Beauty magazine advertisement is clearly shown to be a combination of different categories. First, the advertisement is segmented psychographically. A psychographic segmentation approach involves an understanding of consumer’s lifestyle, interests, and opinions.
First of all, advertising gives effect in luring the audience to buy their products. Nancy Day, author of “Advertising: Information or Manipulation?”, wrote about how advertisements can give effect to a consumer by proclaiming that they need it in their lives. Day introduces the idea that “advertising tells you what you need. Before advertisers told us to, who worried about dandruff” (Day). Day conveys the idea that advertisements help enhance the needs of a consumer by repeating that the products will change their lives with a positive outcome.
Advertisements: Exposed When viewing advertisements, commercials, and marketing techniques in the sense of a rhetorical perspective, rhetorical strategies such as logos, pathos, and ethos heavily influence the way society decides what products they want to purchase. By using these strategies, the advertisement portrayal based on statistics, factual evidence, and emotional involvement give a sense of need and want for that product. Advertisements also make use of social norms to display various expectations among gender roles along with providing differentiation among tasks that are deemed with femininity or masculinity.

On the other hand, women chose more intangible qualities than physical ones that define behavior and cleverness but, they prefer their potential partner to be funnier than being too smart. The other traits that were chosen include communication skills, dependability, age, and ambition. As a whole, 9 out of 10 traits were the same on both gender, except for the age trait in the men’s list. None of the chosen traits were associated with material possession or social status of the potential partner. Intelligence is an attractive trait to many people, some even find it sexually attractive, people who may be sapiosexual.
It was proven that people apply same inference to themselves. It was demonstrated that individuals apply a similar deduction to themselves. Similarly as they judge attractive others as moderately higher social class, they judged their own social class as higher to the degree they believed they were physically attractive. These
The pricing strategy or pricing policy is one of the most important managers make for a product as it affects the profitable outcome and competitiveness that a product may make. (Toni, 2017).

It can also be used to defend an existing market from new entrants, to increase market share within a market or to enter a new market by dropping the price or offering more benefits with the device such as packages.
This stereotype is very present in the media and society. Society puts a predetermined role on us from when we are born based off of what gender we are. The media does not help this fact also because in many ads there are women either cleaning or there are ads targeting women that clean. These ads also say that women’s most important role is to clean. However, this stereotype is disproven by many people such as, how women spend less time cleaning now more than ever.

This is due to the fact that marketing is a field that offers a combination of so many different disciplines such as art, psychology, and statistics.
