When it comes to marketing strategies there is no one size fits all… otherwise, there would be no strategy.

What is Undifferentiated Marketing?

Undifferentiated marketing is a marketing strategy when a brand decides to ignore the differences in market segments and appeal to the whole market with one message and one strategy. 

This strategy tends to use mass distribution and mass media to extend their reach as far as possible and appeal to as many people as possible with the same message. 

Differentiated vs Undifferentiated Marketing

Once you understand what undifferentiated marketing is, it’s not going to take too much for you to work out what differenced marketing is.

Quite simply, it’s the opposite. While undifferenced marketing doesn’t distinguish between market segments through marketing messages, differentiated marketing does the exact opposite. 

Not only does it consider the differences between segments, it aims to appeal more specifically to those differences. In other words, what makes one segment unique from another is often when differentiated marketing aims to appeal.
