Magazines

Using a full range of qualitative and quantitative research techniques, Fusion Insight & Strategy will provide you with invaluable business insight to help you understand what your readers, subscribers and advertisers really think.


5 Fusion Facts for magazine businesses


We work on paid for, controlled circulation and member publications.

We apply the most appropriate methodology to obtain the insight required - qualitative (explanation/understanding) and quantitative (measurement).

A significant part of the work we undertake is to understand changing attitudes and behaviour to how ‘content’ is and will be consumed – by segments/audiences, preferred platform and how much are they prepared to pay .

As well as existing and new product development, we also undertake sales support research – whether confirming the profile and proving the value of the readership; or conducting reading and noting studies to drive display ad revenues in specific issues of a print publication.

We also work with magazine owners to deliver research studies for their clients; giving the media owner an incremental revenue stream; they sell it and make a profit, we fulfil it.

What Client’s Say

  • Over the past couple of years and within Euromoney Institutional Investor's strategy to become more customer focused, Fusion have provided numerous brands in the group with insightful reports on market demand and customer satisfaction. These valuable studies based on qualitative and quantitative surveys to our prospects and customers have allowed the group to rethink their product portfolio according to market needs and also change product strategies when necessary to adapt to subscribers' demand.

  • Fusion helped us to create a new series of reports called Ad Impact Studies. These have been critical in supporting our advertising sales revenues as they help to provide clients with ROI metrics. Working with Fusion has been a very smooth process. They are a creative and hard working group with a clear focus on delivery. I have no hesitation in recommending Phil and his team for providing high quality customer insights.
