What kind of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
The two largest music magazines publishers are IPC and Bauer media. IPC Media is the UKs leading consumermagazine publisher with approximately 90brands and selling 350 million magazines every year. IPC are responsible forpublishing the very popular NME which is an indie music magazine. My musicmagazine is also an Indie magazine. They are also responsible for creating a range of different magazines including gossip, fashion and lifestyle.
Bauer media are responsible for creating many popular music magazine such as Kerrang which of a rock magazine and also Q which is also a indie magazine. Bauer Media reaches over nineteen million UK adults across multiple media channels. They are also responsible for a number of different radio and televisionstations and a very wide range of different magazines.
I would get IPC to publish my musicmagazine. The reason for this is because Bauer media publish bigger music magazines and also have many popularradio stations and television stations so I would want my music magazine to be able to compete against the big magazines that Bauer media produce.Also because IPC media only produce onepopular indie magazine, there is plenty of room left for another one to becomepopular and to draw in a larger audience for indie music magazines.
I would sell my magazine in news agents and big shoppingstores in order to advertise my magazine more. I would alsosell them in clothing shops such as Primark and Quiggins asmy target audience tend to shop in these shops. I would alsosell my magazine is popular music shops such as HMVbecause I know that these shops are popular with Indiestyled people.
