Question 7 - Looking back at your preliminary task, what do you feel you have learnt in the profession from it to the full product?

Evaluation Question 7 - Video Maker

After learning how to use all of the different technologies and software's to enable me to explore various ways of presenting my work, I have realised that In the age of web 2.0 I am now a prosumer instead of a consumer. This means that I create work for the consumption of the public, whereas I used to be part of the public who consumed other companies produce, such as magazines etc.

Overall Questionnaire

The intention of this questionnaire was to see how my target audience would react to it, this would allow me to see how successful my magazine was and if my target audience were affected in the way i intended by the magazine.  I chose to use an open questionnaire, as i would enable me to be able to collect more detailed data and although it is more time consuming (to both complete the questionnaire and process the data) it still gives me more accurate information about what i want to know.

Question 4 - What would be the audience for your media product?

Q) What would be the audience for your media product?

My preliminary target audience for my magazine is men and women aged 15 -25. 

Due to the age of my target audience, i know they would be able to afford £1.50 every fortnight for my magazine, as they will either have a job or they might possibly get pocket money, or just money in general from their parents. 

Male: 43%

Female: 57%

Average Age: 19

Work Full Time: 41%

Work Part Time: 39%

Audience Profile: For professional magazines, it is very important they they get to know their target audience. Getting to know the magazine's audience allows the magazines to put more in the magazine that the audience is interested in, thus having a domino effect on the number of sales of the magazine (more people will buy it, in turn, bringing in more money for the magazine). A reader profile is very important for a magazine, as it allows them to collect the information which they can they use to help their magazine. I have made a reader profile (below) so that i could have the same understanding about my audience, helping me to reach out to my target audience more.
