Adam Cunliffe Market ResearchI have conducted a questionnaire that is has been handed out to a group of randomly selectedpeople of all ages and genders. I have done this for market research for a magazine that I am goingto create. The results are going to help me to decide what genre and age group and target audienceto chose, how to lay out my magazine and also what types of things that I can include on the coverand inside. Gender? 30% male female 70%This graphs shows that the majority of the people that i have asked were males and this will be asignificant factor when thinking about the target audience of my magazine because this means thatmen will be more likely to read an enjoy a magazine that i produce.
