They have an advantage over traditional retailers because they do not define their target by segmenting ages and lifestyles giving them a much broader market. They segment their product line by womens (60%), mens (25%) and the fast growing childrens (15%) department.

Other communications Real-estate Marketing Word of Mouth
Effectiveness of marketing communications Management Efficiency The focus on the customer and product requires that the unit is constantly re-inventing itself to avoid becoming obsolete. The final goal ultimately is to create a communication matrix for this purpose.
Effectiveness of marketing communications Different Approach then Competitor Zara only spends about 0.3% of their revenue on promotion so they can instead focus heavily on product, place, and pricing as opposed to promotion
Events 1 slides describing communications through events: Description of events (what? where? who?) Event patterns (regularity and schedule) Style of communication Other observations? Vogue Fashion's Night Out by ZARA ZARA fashion show
