Implications: Gender is just one way to define your target audience, and just one dynamic that might influence the benefits sought when someone buys the product or service you sell. Generally speaking, other attributes to consider are socio-economic status, geography, household composition, life stage, race, ethnicity, occupation, experience purchasing in the category, and more.
The better you understand your target consumer, the more likely your message will hit it.
