Readership Profile The Bulgarian issue of AMICAwill be directed at the contemporary woman – educated, interested in new trends, sensitive and provocative. AMICA’s readers are socially active (25-45 y.o.), not only regarding their work but their income and quality of living as well. These women have interests, ideas and good taste. A part of the future readers of AMICAdon’t read any Bulgarian women’s magazines at present because they find those magazines boring (they prefer to read books or magazines in English, such as Vanity Fair, How to Spend It, Vogue, etc.). The rest of AMICA’s potential readership now buy EVA or ELLEbecause they want to be in step with the current trends and have reading habits. AMICA will give a new point of view on the topics, problems and trends that interest women (culture, lifestyle, history, finance, personalities, psychology, interesting materials). AMICA’s language will be direct and intelligent; witty but not pretentious. The Bulgarian issue of the Italian AMICA will follow the concept of the originaland will appeal to its readers with a clean and elegant layout.

Goals: Establishing AMICA as the leading women’s magazine for the higher target group in a short period of time, competing with the magazines EVA (on the market for 10 years, solid position as the leader in the segment) and ELLE (for 2 years), whose positions are based on the familiarity of the brand but has an unstable editorial policy. Prominent journalists and photographers will be working on AMICA’s team. The magazine will have an exceptionally high quality of texts, layout, pre-print and print.
