Question 3 What kinds of media institution might distribute your media product and why?
Shops <ul><li>I think my music magazine could be distributed through shops, which Is how most mainstream magazines are distributed, but in particular i think it would be more beneficial If it was sold it small shops such as newsagents. I think this would be beneficial because newsagents are popular in a small community and because my magazine would appeal to a wide range of audiences this would make the sale of the magazine more popular. </li></ul><ul><li>I also think my magazine could be distributed in larger shops such as supermarkets and larger newsagents. </li></ul>
Why? <ul><li>i definitely think that distributing my music magazines via newsagents and large supermarkets would be very beneficial to the sales of the magazines I think this because going into the supermarket and popping into a local newsagent is part of some peoples daily life, so for them to spot and want to buy my magazine would be very easy for them and they wouldn’t need to go out of their way to find my magazine, if they heard about it and wanted to buy it. I also think It would be beneficial to the sales of the magazine because selling my magazine in large supermarkets means it will hopefully get to a larger audience whereas if the magazine were to only be sold as a prescription only magazine, this would mean that limited people would have access to it and advertising of my magazine would be non existing which would have a considerable effect on the amount of magazines sold. </li></ul>
Magazines that are linked to and promoted on websites <ul><li>I also think my magazine could also be successful and be distributed by having it’s own website, I think this would have a positive effect on my the sales of my magazines because their being a website linked to my music magazine would show people how successful it was and may make people want to buy the magazine. </li></ul>
Why <ul><li>Because the use of internet is in most peoples daily life, this will give my magazine a high advantage of people seeing it on the internet, and if people see how popular it is from the website and the websites reviews, this may encourage people to go out and buy my magazine from their local shops. </li></ul><ul><li>Because it will be on the internet this means it is likely to reach a larger audience than if it was only sold in shops because people of all ages use the internet from children-adults. And because my magazine is mostly aimed at teenagers from the age of 13-18 this gives the magazine sales a higher advantage because age 13-18 is a wide age range, and may well appeal to a wide audience of 13-18 year old girls. </li></ul>
