Question 4• Who would be the audience of your media product?
• Before making my magazine I had to think about what my audience would like, dislike and if it would fit in the conventions of a magazine. So now after creating my front cover, contents page and double page spread I thought I would ask people of the age range of my target audience to get some feedback and so after making sure I had was completely happy with the my magazine, I wanted to make sure that what I had created would appeal to my target audience if were to be printed and put into the real world and so I posted a small paragraph explaining what the magazine was and how I wanted people to comment on the magazine to see if they liked it. I then got some feedback saying how much they liked the magazine and that they would buy if it were to be put in the media however I did get a comment about how they thought the contents page looked a little bare compared to the rest of the magazine but in response to this I had tried filling the gap and it made the magazine look over crowded, which messed with the professional layout of the magazine.
Question 5• How did you attract/address your audience?To research my target audience and to find outwhat they really want in a media product I decidedto go onto survey monkey and create a little survey.After looking at all the institutional research andthe different magazines I realized the style of text Ineeded to include and use in my magazine for themain article. As it is not just the layout I needed toworry about, it was the actual content in themagazine and then decide what to use to appeal tomy target audience by using mature language.
For my magazine the main target audience formy magazine would be young woman howeverfrom using the survey before actually creatingmy magazine this shows that I have a widerrange of an audience and they would actuallybe interested inn what I am going to create.
This shows a brief inside view of what people like to listen toand it shows that at least from this list I would have 18.2% ofpeople who has completed this survey that they would atleast be a little bit interested in reading my magazine as thegenre for my magazine is R&B and from this list it shows thatI have niche in the magazine industry for this style of genre.
This part of my survey shows that I have amarket for people who listen to my genre alsowould be interested in reading my magazine.
This shows that my target audience does read magazinesand my magazine that I have created gets distributed ona monthly bases, which the majority of the people inthis survey actually read magazines once a month sohopefully it will be my magazines that they read everymonth.
