This is my target audience profile. For my profile I have chosen this women as i feel like she is the closest image to what i was thinking. as you can see she is not old but by the image i can tell she has the same sort of personality suited to my magazine. Judging by the image you can see that this girl likes to travel, and explore things, also judging by her clothes i can see that she walks a lot. i can also see that loves travelling as you tell by her face that she seems really happy, possibly by standing in front of the amazing view. by visiting Frome she will find out some really interesting facts about Frome and all the history that it has. I feel like she would be the perfect sort of person that would like to pick up my magazine and read into all the articles about the life of Frome.
I have just finished and uploaded my target audience. I have also finally sorted out my site, now i have all the different menus on the site that will make it a lot easier to find certain things for example. All of my diary entries will be put onto one page. i am happy that i have don’t it now, so that i have to worry about it when i have finished. my next steps are to complete my target audience profile, my aim is to get that uploaded by tonight.
My target audience would a range of different types of people/ groups. the main audience for my regional magazine would be someone who likes to travel, people that are really interested in small towns, small towns with quite a big reputation. i think that those sort of people will be really interested in reading my magazine, to see what sort of unique this and places to visit in Frome. I also think that older people would like this magazine (40+) some people of this age likes vintage. They also like history I feel like my magazine will contain a lot about the vintage areas of Frome and reading into the history of Frome. I think that someone looking for somewhere to live that is calm and quiet but has a lot going on in it, would love to read this magazine, small towns are quite popular for older people, as they prefer places that are private and a lot quieter.
Personally i don’t that many young children/ young adults will be interested in my magazine, looking at other regional magazines the covers of them aren’t really eye opening, for that young a person. there are many articles on the covers, talking about places that are for sale, and as a young adult this wouldn’t really matter to them as they don’t need to be looking at places to stay, these magazines are also advertising the life of the town/city. schools/shops/houses etc. all of these things are important for an adult/ mum to know so that they can see what sort of place they will be visiting/living in.
for my magazine I think that my audience would be adults, adults with all different interests, i think there are many different reasons adults would be into my magazine, this could be whether they are looking for a place to live, or they just want to visit certain places that are advertised on the magazine, or if they just wanted to find out more about the history of the town. For any of these reasons i think that adults would want to pick up and read my magazine.
This week I have finished and uploaded my initial ideas, my initial contained my plan of what I wanted and what I was going to do, it also contained an image of Frome town as a little idea of the things I may include in my magazine.
this week I have also started my codes and conventions and I am currently half way through that. the pages I have chosen to analyse is the cover from ‘Salisbury life’ and I have analyzed the contents page and an article page from the ‘Bath life’ magazine. I am hoping to have that finished and uploaded by the end of today so I can crack on with my historical research page.
Today i have started planning and deciding what I’m going to do for my main Product. I have came to the decision that i was going to do a local magazine based around Frome. living there all my most of my life I have already come up with ideas of what i will include in my magazine. The many places to visit and try. I am looking forward to look into more detail about the history and background of Frome.
MY INITIAL IDEAS ARE TO DO A MAGAZINE. on the interesting details of Frome, whether that is, the best place to go and see if Frome? What is so special about the town. I decided to do a magazine instead of a movie, documentary or music video, because out of these options, I felt that doing a magazine was the best decision, as it was my strong point and i have now had practice creating magazines in the past few months.
My magazine will contain, information on the most visited places in Frome, i will also go into detail of the vintage side of Frome. Frome has a range of different places and shops. Personally i think that there is a place for everyone in Frome. It still has its vintage vibe, but the shops have been updated.
My magazine will contain a lot of images of the popular places people visit. even some of the old buildings that people like to visit. I’m currently deciding what should be my main story. I’m really liking the idea of concentrating on the old a vintage parts of Frome as they have more of a background. I think there is also a lot more to talk about when it comes to the history of Frome.
