How do Music Magazines use the internet to gain interest in the audience demographic?
Most good Music Magazines are available online, due to use of technology in everyday life, and as it is easier to access online. Magazine's such as 'Q' will show free headlines on the app, and will demand a subscription fee for article content.

Does the 2013 preliminary material want you to research only online music press, or both online and print media?
Both are important for this exam.
6 of 22

It would cost more. This is because of Print costs; online magazines are much cheaper to produce, therefore the cost is less to view.

The online version would be more individualistic and promotes 'being different' and being technologically advanced.
16 of 22
How has social media/networking negatively affected the Music Press?
The popularity of social networking sites such as twitter means that top music news can no longer 'break' a story to the audience. Facebook 'shares' also affect this.
17 of 22
How has social media/networking positively affected the Music Press?
Sites such as twitter can promote your Website/Magazine.
18 of 22
How would the popular distribution of music in this decade be more preferable towards the Online Music Press than the Print version?
Music is usually shared electronically, so it would be easier to have an app that you can purchase the sound file directly from than reading the content. Also, Music Press online can sample music via youtube to stimulate interest in audiences.
19 of 22

Include exclusive content, QR codes for interactivity, Posters included in the Print copy, Pictorials, B2B marketing (Business2Business), Loyalty copies, 'Send Off; for gig tickets etc...

How could you promote other companies on your web page when desgining it (But remember, in the 2013 exam, they do not want to become a 'promotional tool for the music industry' so be sure to include this in your response)
Skyscraper advertisement, B2B marketing (make these clear in your annotations)
