Target audience The target audience of my magazine is young people aged between the ages and those who attend a college or a sixth form. I will make my magazine related to their interests so that they will keep up to date with the latest things that are going on in their college life.

Analysis from questionnaires Looking at the results I got from my questionnaire I found in the question ‘What age are you?’ I found that I asked an equal number of people aged either 16 or 17.
Analysis from questionnaires Also with gender I found with the question ‘What gender are you?’ I found that the people I asked where aged 16 or 17. The following table shows this.
Analysis from questionnaires In the next question, which was ‘Do you buy magazines?’ I found that 4 people brought magazines where as 6 people didn’t buy a magazine, this shows to me that young people do not buy magazines so I will have to make my magazine good enough so that I can encourage people into buying magazines.
Analysis from questionnaires Of the 4 that brought magazines I fouind that one person brought a magazine every week. Another said that they only brought a magazine once or twice a month. Third states that they brought a magazine twice a month. Finally, the last said that they brought a magazine about twice a month. This shows to me that young people do buy magazines often. If I had a bigger sample size then I would have been able to have got a clearer picture of how many buy magazines and how frequently they do so.
Analysis from questionnaires The next question I asked on my questionnaire was ‘Would you buy a magazine solely about School?’ I found that 4 people would not buy a magazine if it was just about school. I think that they would want to see other information inside such as celebrity gossip and other information which is commonly seen in magazine. With six out of ten people supporting a magazine solely about school I think that I would be a good idea that I take into account other people views and add other information in so that they are catered for.
Analysis from questionnaires The next question I asked on my questionnaire was ‘What would you expect to see in a school magazine?’ I found that they would all expect to see information about the school, this would include dates about events and possible what exams are coming up. This tells me what information what I should put in because this is magazine because if I put the wrong content in then no one would buy the magazine.
Analysis from questionnaires The next question I asked was ‘How much would you pay at max for a school magazine. As you can see 3 people would pay 50p or less, but the highest number is at 50p to a pound this tell me that I should price my magazine around this because this is what my target audience are prepared to pay for the magazine. if I over charge then no one will buy my magazine.
Analysis from questionnaires The last question I asked on my on my questionnaire was ‘Do you think the theme of the magazine should reflect the school?’, what I meant by this was should the colour them be similar to the school. For archies this would be red, blue and white and my results prove that a resounding number of people said that they would like to see this in the magazine. All 10 people supported the idea of doing this.
