Research Evaluation After conducting my own research via a questionnaire I have constructive feedback that I can use in order

to improve my magazine. I questioned 20 people altogether and after collecting all the information I have discovered the following information: Class, Age, and Gender I asked 50% male and 50% female so that the information that I gain from the questionnaire will help me to appeal to both male and females. Also, I asked people from around the ages of 16, 17 and 18 which are the lower end of my target audience as I believe that these individuals will be the people who propel the magazine to where I wish it to be. After conducting my research I have discovered that most of the individuals that I surveyed fall into the upper working, and middle social class groups. I managed to gather this information by asking, “What is the occupation of the chief income earner in your household?”

Room for a Music Magazine in the Market? Do you Buy Music Magazines? More people than not believe that there is room in the market for another music magazine, I believe that this is a good pretence to make a magazine on as if it is good enough, people will want to purchase it. Although more people said that they do not read magazines compared to people that do, I do believe that if I produced a music magazine that was appealing to all then individuals would buy it. Also, many people now access music magazines via the internet which could demonstrate why people do not purchase music magazines any longer.
