Graphs and analysis of music questionnaire and answers

  1. 1. Graphs and analysis of music questionnaire and answers
  2. 2. Introduction I conducted a questionnaire and handed it out to 26 people to find out their opinions on music magazines. I deliberately choose people who were under 25 as I knew I wanted to create a magazine targeted at a younger audience. The questionnaire covered musical taste, price range, editorial content and frequency of publication. All this information will help me focus on the areas to concentrate on when producing my magazine so it is successful and targets the audience I have chosen . A question that was included in the questionnaire was ‘ What is your favourite music magazine? ‘. The results couldn’t be put in a graph but they did give me some indication. The answers included the magazines Rolling Stone, NME, Q and Kerrang. From looking at these magazines which seem to be the most popular I can get some inspiration and guidance.
  3. 3. What gender are you? male female The group who filled out the questionaire were almost 50% male, 50% female but with sligtly more male. By using these results from the questionaire, I hope my magazine will appeal to both males and females.
  4. 4. How old are you? 16-20 21-25 The age range was two thirds teenagers to young adults and one third early twenties. This means the results will be more useful if I aim my magazine at a teenage audience.
  5. 5. What is your favourite genre out of the five? 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 indie pop rock dubstep reggae I deliberately choose five genres that are mainly listened to by under 25s as that was roughly my target audience. The genres Indie and Reggae were the most popular out of the five which gave me a good indication of how I should balance what was in the magazine. Indie and reggae are the more alternative genres which encouraged me to make the magazine to exclusively main stream.
  6. 6. Pick your favourite artist/band out of the six listed? 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 Magnetic Man Nesky Rusko Chase and Status Jakwob Nero This question was more specific to the dubstep genre as I thought i wanted to include a dubstep artist on the front cover or include in the contents page. The majority choose the two most main stream artists, so although I wanted to make a less main stream magazine I still wanted to attract the biggest number of readers.
  7. 7. Maximum price you would pay for magazine? 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 £3.50 £4.25 £4.65 £5.00 From the results it was clear that if I wanted to attract a younger audience I couldn’t go over £3.50 as that would exclude half the potential readers. This confirms that price would be a very significant factor for a magazine if it wanted to be successful.
  8. 8. Which set of editorial pillars in the contents page would attract you the most? 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 Fashion- Music - Festivals - Gigs Features - Gossip - World affairs Upcoming Artist - Fashion - Sex When people were asked about editorial pillars fashion, music, festivals and gigs came up to be the most successful. This result was backed up by the next question
  9. 9. If a magazine updated when and where to buy tickets for concerts would you be more likely to go? Yes No Maybe Following on from the previous question, this confirmed that information about festivals and gigs is an important factor for teenage readers. It doesn’t show on the graph but the majority of people who said yes were from the teenage age group and the people who said no were older.
  10. 10. How often would you buy the magazine? 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 Everyday Weekly Monthly In this graph it clearly showed that people didn’t think it was necessary to buy a magazine everyday or every week. This is because there wouldn’t be enough new information to justify a whole magazine.
  11. 11. FONTS • Example one • • EXAMPLE three • Example four Nine people chose this font Six people chose this font Five people chose this font Six people chose this font I decide to include a question about fonts in my questionnaire to give me a rough idea of what fonts immediately attract people. I am going to use these results for my influence on what font to pick for the front cover of my music magazine.
