That's right. It's Game of Thrones. We've taken seven noble families from the lands of Westeros to identify and analyze their unique traits and characteristics. 



We have identified aspects of demographic segmentation, geographic segmentation, psychographic segmentation and behavioral segmentation amongst these 7 great Game of Thrones houses, to exemplify the importance of creating authentic and relevant market personas. So, here are our significant subjects: 

  • House Stark
  • House Martell
  • House Lannister
  • House Arryn
  • House Baratheon
  • House Tyrell
  • House Greyjoy

The dominant characteristics of these families are what define and segment them; their culture, their values, their geographic location, their politics, climate, relationships, wealth, the list goes on.

Segmenting the 7 Kingdoms of Westeros based on their characterizing features demonstrates how market segmentation works in the real world. The importance of identifying and utilizing the intricacies of individuals and market segments is undeniable when creating on-point personas for your genuine users.
