My magazine would compete with other rock magazines such as Kerrang and Classic Rock because they’re all in the same genre of music also the price range for my magazine is £2 and set the release for a fortnight so it isn’t weekly therefore the reader isn’t paying every week. My magazine also contains social network sites like Facebook and Twitter. Also its own website (link on the content page) so my target audience can be updated with information if they seek any further news. With my website, I’ve also set up a page for my audience to communicate with each other and connect with interests about the subject related. With social networks connected and a website, this will allow feedback coming through easier plus allowing the content published through different platforms.
The media company I would chose to publish my magazine would be Bauer due to the fact they publish to other countries and could create a huge impact in the magazine and the interest from the target audience. However my magazine was in the style of Classic Rock and Kerrang so my other choices would be either the BBC or IPC since they are UK based and bring out my magazine through different platforms, especially the BBC. Bauer would be good to distribute my magazine as they sell the most magazine worldwide with 300 digital products, fifty television and radio stations.
