Target Audience

The update of my target audience is for the Glastonbury instead of Frome. For this magazine the target audience is very flexible, there are two main attractions on my magazine that will attract very different people.

the first attraction is the Glastonbury Tor, this is my main attraction for my final piece. The Tor is very popular, possibly Glastonbury’s biggest attraction. So the target audience for this would be a range of different people personalities, it would have to be people that like a bit of a walk, as the tor is at the top of a very steep hill. So they will have to be very adventurous. It has a lot of history behind it, this information you will find on a plaque inside the Tor. Leading on from that, these people would e interested in its history, they would want to find out more, and learn the reason to the Tor’ purpose. One of the great things about climbing the Tor is the amazing view when you get to the top. This leads on the another target audience that will suit visiting the Tor, this could be a family thing, finding out some really interesting information about the history, and taking a nice picnic up there to sit and enjoy whilst looking at the view, that looks across the whole of Glastonbury and wells.

The second attraction is a shop at the top of the high street. ‘Mumani Vintage’ is a shop that has nearly anything that you could imagine, from sparkles to vintage clothing, this shop is perfect for the festival lovers, with all their sparkles and their wacky retro clothing. Or for just hippies that loving harem trousers, there are so many accessories, bags, hats, belts and much more, there really isn’t one type of person that would love this shop. It really has something for everyone, they also have something for each season. Everyone would love this shop, its definitely worth visiting.

Adjusting the opacity of the image in the background, as you can see I have adjusted the intensity of the image in the background, i didn’t want the image to look to bold, so it would drown out the article pull quotes out.

Adding white box behind competition text, i thought would add the box to make that piece of writing stand out. It didn’t really look that good with the background image so i adjusted it again.

By adding a faint white box behind the title was supposed to make the title stand out and make the writing look bigger, i made it faint because i don’t think that it would look right if it was completely bold.

I decided to move the the competition to the side with all the articles on. I chose to do this because i didn’t want anything to cover the Tor as that is the main attraction i want everyone to be able to see it.

Target Audience

As i have changed my idea completely, my ideal target audience has also changed. My target audience now will be someone, who loves colour and sparkles, someone quite hippy like. this shop contains a lot of sparkles some pompoms and a lot of vintage clothing, for men, women and children.

This person possibly goes to a lot festivals, loves to dress up and enjoys being sparkly. Glastonbury has a lot of vintage and hippy shops, people that love Indian style things with some incense to add. A lot of the food and restaurants in Glastonbury are vegan. The shops in Glastonbury are very different to your everyday Boots or Super drug. These shops are very unique, so if you are wanting a change or to shop somewhere different Glastonbury high street is the place for you.

 

 

 

For the other side of Glastonbury (the Tor) the kind of people that will be best suited for this would be travellers people that like to explore and find out different things. Another type of person that would love visiting the Tor is someone that loves history, the Tor is a really old architect that has so much history to it that travellers and historians will be very interested in. the Tor is a great little trip for everyone to go and check out, at the top there is a little bored with historical information that has more detail about the history of the Tor. world-traveler2

Locations

The main location is Glastonbury, but i will be talking about and including different areas of Glastonbury in my magazine. Including different images from the main high street different shops and nice places to eat. But most importantly, i will be going up to the Glastonbury Tor, which will be my main feature in my magazine, and i will be taking pictures of the outside and inside of the Tor. For shop article i think i will be including the shop next door, as they are very unique and very interesting.

Planning- Synopsis of text

For my front cover i will be talking about and going into detail about the Glastonbury Tor as that will be the main image of the front page. I will also be talking about the Tor as it’s a very popular artefact. i’m going to be going to detail with the Tor i’m going to talk about all the great things about it. Also i’m going to talk about the history of it, so that people are really interested, I’m going to be including information like.. Before the Tor was built there was a church in the same place, but it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1275, the Tor was the “Stone church replacement” this was built, during the 14th century. And is still there to this day.

I’m going to be including information like that in the actual article, i will word it a lot better, this was just a rough draft.

For my second article i’m going to be writing about a shop at the top of the high street that is relatively new, that i know will be very popular. i will be talking about their different products they have in the shop, i will also be questioning the owners and getting some real information about the unique shop that has something for everyone.

TARGET AUDIENCE PROFILE

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’ve decided to completely change my idea, originally i was doing my magazine about Frome, but now i’m doing it on Glastonbury town, not the festival. My ideal audience person would be someone who loved a little adventure. As i will be talking about the Tor so this person, would need to be up for a little trek up a little hill to see the tower. They have also go to be into history, as the Tor is ancient and has a lot of ¬†history behind it.

For the second part of my magazine, i will be doing it on the main town, so this person will have to be very unique. someone who’s into sparkly vintage clothing, also some who likes the smell of incense. Glastonbury high street has very unique, there are no regular shops there, that you would find in every other town, it very indian/vintage themed so my ideal audience would be someone into that sort of clothing and loving the indian theme, with elephants and incense.

TARGET AUDIENCE

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.

INITIAL IDEAS

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.Frome
