The power of magazine advertising

Magazines are a powerful advertising medium. Magazines are a vital part of many New Zealanders' lives - It's estimated that New Zealanders read almost 52 million magazines a year and that 92% of New Zealanders aged over 15 read magazines.

Magazines have many attributes that combine to create a high-performance medium worthy of remaining an essential ingredient in your marketing mix. These attributes include:

  • Magazines are accessible - readily available to readers, completely portable, and with no time limit on readership of advertisements.
  • Magazines are an ideal branding vehicle- with brand names enjoying prolonged exposure compared to other media.
  • Magazines are credible - readers perceive magazine advertisements as more believable than on TV and this credibility is heightened through 'one on one' dialogue and reader interaction.
  • Magazines deliver an up-market audience with above average income and education.
  • Magazines are more relevant - they are generally read because they are of particular use and/or interest to the reader.
  • Magazines deliver longevity - they are less perishable than other media, and monthly titles continue to accumulate readers for 12 weeks after publication. Taekwon-Do Talks often become souvenirs for students to look back on over their years of training.
  • Magazines aren't passive - reader retention / recall is increased by readers setting their own pace and re-reading as required. Magazine advertisements result in 50% more cognitive associations than television.
  • Magazines are interactive - about 70% of New Zealanders have, at some stage, responded to an advertisement or promotion in a magazine.
  • Magazines prompt buying decisions - students and instructors rely heavily on Taekwon-Do Talk for purchasing information.
