How did you attract/address your audience?
The cover page is mainly the reason
why people buy magazines as it
attracts readers with image or cover
lines and is in a way the “face” of the
My cover page also has most
important features to attract the
clients such as:
This is the masthead of my magazine. It does not just mean “voice of
people” or “public opinion” but also is a song, so there is a chance
that some people will associate the song and the magazine and will
be willing to buy it.
There is a textured light blue background for the masthead and the
idea is to change colours from issue to issue so they match the main
image, but keep the layout and writing the same – as a unique part
of the magazine.
In one of my drafts I had both words in one line, but than creating my
own original masthead specifically for the “Vox Populi” I’ve put “vox”
side ways. This looks more creative and unusual and so awakes
interest in people to look at it, buy it, read it.
The main attraction of the magazine and
cover page is an image. My magazine
attracts the readers because I’ve placed
the photo of young pretty “new-born”
artist right at the centre of the page.
I’ve used a medium shot and chose the
shot where my model is looking straight
into the camera as almost looking in the
eyes of the potential audience and in this
way attracts the reader.
The image is “talking” to the audience, making them interested in
the product and wanting to buy it.
My cover lines address to the reader in a
very common for them way – as my
audience is mainly 18+ teenagers. I also
used some well known phrases, for
example, “on the go” is a general name of
the playlist on the iPhone 4, so people
aged 18-19 would be well familiar with this
I’ve included a question
as one of my cover lines.
This rises reader’s interest
even more, as they
would want to know
more about the artist.
The last way to attract more readers is a
good price, which is not too expensive, as
my audience are mostly students, but still is
enough for a good magazine.
the biggest attraction of the audience is the cover page,
but inside the magazine, I’ve also used language which is
common for the teenagers, it has some media and music
terms, but generally very common, easy and sometimes
even slang. Also, the magazine contains something for both
genders. Men will be interested in news, gadgets, even
pictures of female artists. Equally women would be interested
in news, articles and fashion shown in the photoshoots.
