I think I would like to cater for the pop area of the market.The pop magazines that are around now are; We Love Pop Top Of The Pops BillboardI think this is a good gap in the market tomake a new cheesy pop magazine. As thereare not many other magazines to contendwith.

Top Of The Pops Info! This table shows that top of the pops magazine is aimed mainly at girls aged 11-15 years old. This helps me t find out what age group would be good to target for my magazine, and by this it seems young teenagers age 11-15 would be a good place to start.It also gives me an indication at what price that agegroup are willing to pay as they 331,000 people readit and buy it at £2.99. This would also be a good areato price my magazine but I could possibly make iteven cheaper so people would chose my magazineover this one.

We ♥ Pop Info! This table shows that this magazines target audience is just girls aged 13-15. This together with top of the pops shows me than an age range of 11-15 would be a good idea, as it would appeal to both of these magazines audiences. However I could aim for a little bit older as that is not already catered for.This magazines price is also £2.99 the sameas top of the pops. This seems like a goodidea to not price my magazine above £3. Thismeans that making my magazine cheaperwould be a good idea as then I may convincereaders to chose my magazine instead if it ischeaper.
