Magazine Adverts

We buy the Gardeners World Magazine most months, and it seems, according to the adverts at the back that it is aimed at the over 65's!   Adverts from elasticated waist trousers, to Stena Lifts to Easy up chairs, the list is endless.  Come on Gardners World there are a lot of us out there years younger than this, lets improve these advertisements!

    Certainly for gardening and all that bending and stretching we do.

    However, on a serious note, the advertisers pay to place their ads in magazines which have the demographic most likely to be interested or tempted by their products.   If you want younger ads you need to persuade all your younger friends to buy the magazine.....

  • To be honest, I don't really pay attention to the ads image 

  • Some of the adds do seem abit old but there not as strange as some of the adds in car mags.
