What is behind the allure of buying, owning and reading magazines?
There are, of course, many answers to this question. But if we are truly honest with ourselves, we might be able to turn the tide of our businesses or, at the very least, start a process of self-analysis that leads eventually to psychological and financial recoveries.
Some college professors will tell you that it is the form of the product-—rather than its substance—that maintains its hold on the public. I suppose that might be true for some magazine readers. Printed products do have a historic experiential hold on some of the reading public. But is that really it? Is it really the paper substrate and physical form that is the key to our ongoing and future success?

But how will you know that there will be readers who will see your ads?
People read magazines to access information that is specifically tailored for their interests, class or age group. They also read magazines because they contain the fine details of an event, a personality or phenomenon. These details are usually not available through other media such as newspapers, radio and television.
While newspapers contain straightforward news, magazines expound more on selected stories, going a step further in enlightening the reader. Most newspapers contain information for the general audience. However, individual magazines focus on specific aspects of life such as parenting, lifestyle, hairdressing, fashion, business, travel and religion. Specialty publications that appeal to a wide audience include those with articles about diet, exercise, fitness, sex and sexuality. Some sports magazines narrow the scope to focus on individual categories of football, wrestling, baseball and hockey.
Like a television series, some magazines run stories in one edition and continue them in the next one, encouraging their ardent readers to buy successive editions. Many readers buy magazines to know what their favorite celebrities have been up to. There are women’s magazines, men’s magazines and those that target teenagers. With the development of the Internet, many traditional magazines have online versions, commonly referred to as e-zines. As magazines have more pictures than newspapers, people often read them to be entertained while gaining information at the same time.
