From its research across three sectors – fashion, beauty and motoring – Magnetic discovered that magazine brands were not only engaging consumers but also managing to achieve reach – something that magazines are often accused of not doing. We believe this success in the influencer marketing space is because of the deep and rich engagement that magazine brands have with their readers and consumers on- and offline.

The Passion Response Study looked at general data on who reads magazines online and offline, the overlap between online and offline , time spent and other metrics, but it also delved deeper by title genre to look at the data across fashion , home, health, food , lifestyle and weekly titles online and offline. In addition, the ad recall section covered the implications on the path to purchase.

Time Inc. UK commissioned Crowd DNA to conduct a research study on exploring passions, the role magazine media plays within them and the influence/effectiveness of passionate audience. Using a mixture of highly in-depth qualitative and quantitative, with supplementary analysis from a respected anthropologist, Time Inc and Crowd DNA carried out a 10-day in-depth online community study comprising highly passionate people, supplemented by a quantitative survey to more than 3,000 additional passionate people, allowed them to understand some key areas in order to define a passion and study the evolution of a passion.

Live The Passion showed that the importance of a passion cannot be overstated – it’s an integral part of the audience that was spoken to. It provides people with many of the facets required for a happy life. Purpose, joy, comfort are just three of the dozens that could be listed. People trust magazine media with one of the most important things in their life (a close second behind children). And advertising in magazine media has a massive spectrum of opportunity. Finding the right relevance is key to success.

Silver Award Winners included:
