Intial Research – Newspaper advertisement

I have decided to begin my part of the research task, we have divided this between the three of us so that we can share the responses we receive. Each of us will produce a survey about the media product we have decided to research into, and therefore this will provide us with accurate information of what people like/enjoy/expect in the chosen product.

I have chosen to research the newspaper advertisement for our new TV Channel. To get a vague idea of what the audience look for in a newspaper advertisement I have created a survey consisting of questions that provide me with some information about what to include in my newspaper magazine.

I tweeted the link that will direct the audience to my survey. My followers are a different age range which means I can ensure that my final product will be suitable for all different ages.


Below is the link to my survey
