Evaluation- Question 4

What would be the audience for your media product?

My preliminary target audience would be 13-20 year olds.

I decided that because my target audience were teens that I would have to make the price of my magazine affordable to students which is why gave it the reasonable price of £2.00. I set this price as I thought it was reasonable and affordable for my target audience.

In professional magazines it is important that the company get to know their readers and what their actual interests are hence why reader profiles are made by the companies. Earlier on in my blog I demonstrated my reader profile and how it was relevant to my magazine.

Evaluation- Question 3

What kind of medua institution might distribute your media product and why?

After careful thought and research I decided that the institution that is most likely to distribute my magazine would be Bauer Media Group. I think this because my magazine is very similar to the magazines that are already distributed by the company itself such as: Kerrang! and Q. Similar to Kerrang! I feel that my company "Revive" could be more than just a magazine but in fact could possibly have a music channel featuring the music that is advertised in the magazine. As Bauer Media Group also distribute TV shows like Magic, Metro and Kiss I feel that my magazine would fit in nicely into their company. I feel like my magazine would have to compete with companies such as NME and Kerrang! as it extremely similar to both magazines and it would attract the same target audience meaning Revive could have to compete. I think that if Bauer was to distribute my product it would be increasing their profit as although they distribute Kerrang! magazine I feel Revive does not just offer a Rock genre to it, it also offers an indie genre to it.
