This will appeal to my audience because it has… A plug advertising a competition. Every body loves a competition. Furthermore shows off two things. One is that you get to meet mixtape, and the second is that it’s in London. It has 100 fashion catwalk copies. My audience will be interested in fashion and this will offer cheaper alternative. It’s not 99 catwalk copies, it’s 100! Is that Justin Bieber on the front cover? Yes. My target audience will be obsessed with Justin Bieber as it seems that the majority of girls of the target ages have ‘Bieber fever’ or are ‘beliebers’. This is a key selling point to the magazine. It offers them reassurance that they are a match with Justin Bieber. The magazine is only £2.00. My target audience wont have much money as they are young and would buy this magazine with their pocket money. That is why I have decided this price. This would definitely appeal to the audience and would make my magazine stand out form competitors. I have featured big names on my magazine, Lucy (who is a made up Pop star but just pretend she isn’t) Daniel who is the magazines favourite critic, his article would have really funny articles on the latest albums. Lady Gaga Justin Bieber Katy Perry Girls Aloud These are all selling points to the magazine that would encourage my target audience to buy the magazine. The magazine gives off a welcoming girly feel. It gives an insight into the exclusive interviews and glittery luxury feel to the magazine.The contents pageIf my audience happen to flick through the magazine whilst considering theirpurchase they will see on my contents page that there are lots and lots ofposters.Posters was a key selling point to the magazine.

The key to attracting anyone to your media product is to have something for everybody. I thinkhaving a variety of features will encourage the audience to buy the product as it all hangs downto that one thing that catches your eye. Obviously they can’t be too varied as the magazine stillneeds to stick to its genre. The main image is the first thing you tend to see on a magazine frontcover, so it’s important to put up a celebrity that a lot of people will instantly recognise and aregenuinely interested in. Looking at my research I think that the most attractive thing on my frontcover is the main image as it became the most popular on my poll and my questionnaireshowed positive feedback on my main image. This is surprising as I didn’t think that this wouldbe the most attracting feature to my audience. I feel that my magazine has met the requirementfor my target audience never the less and certainly sticks to the genre. I’m not sure if there isenough ‘going on’ on my front cover as I think it looks a bit boring. My feedback has made merealise that my audiences opinion is the most important.
