Why Magazines?

The Media landscape has evolved and is changing rapidly, giving consumers greater options than ever before as to how they spend their time.  As a result, marketers have an increased challenge in engaging their audience and building their brand.

Australian's are deeply engaged with their magazines from childhood to adolescence to adulthood and beyond.
Mass Reach!  Magazines work alone or as part of a multi media strategy to drive awareness through significant REACH.  A single page in The Australian Women's Weekly alone reaches 2.4 million readers

Engagement.   Magazines deliver engaged readers. Studies show that magazines carry advertising that consumers regard as appealing, relevant and welcoming. Consumers also have longer 'dwell' time on page than they do with other media

Brand Building  Magazines build and support BRAND EQUITY and FAVOURABILITY.  Magazines are communities that readers identify and bond with.  Magazine advertising benefits from being a part of this community by showing consumers that an advertiser understands their interests and needs.
