Demographics 101

It's classic college marketing... define your target market, and present yourself to it.

Identifying your customers by their verifiable traits and qualifications is helpful. We like to be helpful. Keeping in mind that all specialty-interest advertising is (due to the economic constraints of the required polling) technically unscientific, we do know, as well, that people use such unscientific data.

Let's see if we can help identify who reads Aero-News, in categories useful to our specialty advertisers. If you're selling airplanes, do you really care, for instance, what sex your customer is? While we all know that, statistically, very few women are pilots, we also know they buy airplanes. 

Would you like to know how many of our readers say they will be buying an aircraft within the next 12 months?

Could you use that? We've got that (6%).

The readers of Aero-News are aircraft owners. Fully 54% say they own  at least part of one or more aircraft! 

29%, some of whom count themselves among those aircraft owners, say they are building an aircraft. (These may be non-owners, who are helping a friend build an aircraft, too!)

Aero-News readers are qualified consumers in other ways, as well: they want their news now; not in a few days, or even a few months.

Fully 70% of our readers say they read us, "every day." 

(Beyond that, we have another 8% who say they read Aero-News more than once a day!) 

Aero-News readers, by definition, are computer users. From that we can make an educated guess, and assign them (mostly) to the higher family-income groups. (Among computer users, Aero-News readers are also, obviously, internet users. Knowing this further defines their income and education demographics.)

Aero-News readers are doers, too. Nearly one out of eight (12%) say they will be building an aircraft within a year.

Aero-News readers could be a bunch of little kids, of course. Everybody knows kids get on the internet all the time; and everybody knows kids don't buy airplanes. That's why we ask our readers how old they are. They're adults (virtually none are under 18); but very few are retired (just 8%). They're grown-up income-earners, in other words.

So, Aero-News has an adult, educated, high-income, well-informed group of aviation junkies for an audience.

Who are your customers? 

Would you like your company in front of these people, a million times a week, or more?
