Do you read music magazines? This result shows that 12 people out of the 20 that filled out my questionnaire do read music magazines whereas the other 8 do not. This means that almost 50 per cent of people don’t read music magazines in the 20 I had got to take part in my questionnaire.
How often do you listen to music? This result states that most of the people that took part in my questionnaire, whether or not they bought music magazines or read them, they do listen to music on a regular. Well the majority do anyway. This shows that there is a slight chance that a music magazine could persuade these people to buy if they did not already.
Do you buy music magazines? The result here shows that the majority of people that took part in my questionnaire, do buy music magazines and are interested in the industry. This shows that I could sell and pitch my very own music magazine to these people too as they may be interested in a new production.
What genre music magazines do you read? In this result, picking an actual genre was pretty hard as there were three genres that had almost the same amount of votes. Therefore I will try to add a mixture of all three in my magazine.
How often do you buy music magazines? Once again here there was a difficult situation and it was hard to pick an option out of the results I had got but it had to be said that most people that took part in the questionnaire didn’t buy music magazines regarding there interest in the entertainment industry.
What do you expect from a music magazine? Regarding this question most participants gave me another hard job in choosing an answer for them, there was almost a tie between interviews, photos and concert dates, this means I will have to include all three in my magazine.
What use of colours would appeal to you in a music magazine? This question gave an easy and noticeable answer, that most people prefer primary colours in magazines rather than pastel colours. This means in my own magazine I will try my best to use primary colours as much as possible.
Would you prefer to have more use of photos or text in a music magazine and why? This question also gave me a clear answer from the participants. People prefer photos in magazines rather than text, this is perhaps due to the fact they like stories told through images or like to visually imagine the experience. I will try to put as many photos as possible in my magazine.
What magazine do you think there is a space for in the market at the moment? RnB, Rap and Hip hop all were clear favourites in this question. Even though people believe there is a bigger demand for RnB magazines, Rap and Hip hop were chosen as more desirable earlier on in the questionnaire, along with that they aren't too far off in comparison to RnB in this question. Therefore I am most likely to produce a magazine on Rap and Hip hop.
What price would you pay for a music magazine? In this question the 50p-£1 option was chosen the most, this is because most people between the ages of 16 and 25 don’t want to spend too much money on magazines and want to keep there outcome to a minimal while still getting the options of buying a music magazine. Therefore I will keep the cost of my magazine to a minimal.
