INTRODUCTION
Customer profiling & Catchment analysis is one of the most effective tools for determining where and how to conduct your business. If you have a

grasp on what type of people are most likely to purchase your products or services, you can seek out the location and the marketing plans that give you the best opportunity to reach those people. If you are trying to reach a large group of similar customers, you can study their spending trends, lifestyles, and much more. You can no longer simply choose a populous area in which to set up shop, and then hope to compete.
