IPC media might distribute my media product as they only publish two music magazines in their company, which focus on different genres of music to the one that my media product revolves around. Because of this they may consider publishing me because there will not be any competition between my magazine or the other magazines.
I would sell my magazine in western countries such in Europe & the USA and anywhere else where my magazine will be excepted for retail. I will especially make sure I distribute more stock to areas / countries where the majority are Black, as they are the most interested on average with the R&B and Hip-Hop industry. I will also ensure I distribute my magazines where more people listen to R&B and Hip-Hop music and those who are very interested in it so that my stocks will not be wasted.
Those with a good interest in Hip-Hop and R&B music and what’s happening in that particular industry. Those who have interest in music artists in the Hip-Hop and/or R&B industry and want to read about them, find out when and where they are performing, or attempt to win free prizes such as albums, tickets and fashion accessories created by a particular music artist in the industry. Those who also want to regularly update their music systems with either new CD’s or new downloads will also read my magazine, especially if they want reviews on Hip-Hop and R&B CD’s or the Top 10 tunes of the month list. According to my demographic stats, the age range for my readers is between 18-44 with an average of 24/25 so that means for example; my readers are either in education still, are unemployed or employed depending on their lifestyle.
