In Focus: Psychologies Magazine

Magazines would be nothing without readers. And we are always keen to find out what our customers think about the titles we sell.

Last month we assembled a focus group of 50 magazine fans to review and assess one of our popular women’s lifestyle magazines, Psychologies, to find out more.

Our reviewers weren’t all female, though. We put Psychologies to both men and women of all ages, each with different tastes and interests to gain a rounded consumer insight.

If you aren’t familiar with Psychologies already, here’s a little bit more information

Published by Kelsey Media, Psychologies magazine is the women’s lifestyle magazine with a difference. Pitched as being “grown up, intelligent and intimate” it covers self, relationships, family, work, beauty, wellbeing, culture, travel and food from the angle of the life curious woman.

Our Findings

We asked our focus group members a number of questions to get their view on aspects of Psychologies such as price, ratio of adverts, quality of interviews and standard of features.

Of our respondents 72% were women and 28% were men, allowing us to get the view of both the target audience and those who would not usually be considered to be from the magazine's core demographic.

As a monthly publication, Psychologies ticked the box for a large number of our readers - a huge 92% of reviewers enjoy reading monthlies.

Interestingly, a sizeable 80% of our focus group said that prior to reading Psychologies, they considered it to be a magazine they would not usually buy. Having been given the opportunity to review the publication, however, nearly three quarters said that their opinion had been changed.

The Best Bits

Much of the praise heaped on Psychologies magazine came from focus group members who identified the point of difference from other lifestyle magazines. With a focus on improving oneself, the title was perceived to occupy a gap in the market.

One reviewer said, "There were many articles that covered all aspects of life - not just 'mental health'. Some of these articles were really useful - like Natural Reaction and The Mind Experiment."

Other comments described the features as "varied and interesting" while another said that they felt there was "something for everyone".

The interviews with the likes of Maggie Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Adlington also came in for praise, with the general consensus that the more mature tone and feel made the magazine particularly compelling.


Here are just a few of the testimonials offered by our focus group members.

"I think Psychologies fills a bit of a gap in the market. It is a more mainstream magazine than I would have thought. However, this makes it suitable for the 30-50 female reader, I should think."

“It was more interesting than I expected”

"It has a surprising range of in-depth content. However, it is for a more mature woman."

“Much more mainstream than I had anticipated”

"Good to read a magazine with a slightly different focus - more about the self."

"I normally read a magazine over a few days but I read this in a day. It's very good and would be great to take on holiday and read leisurely."

"It was good to read a new magazine. It had enough fashion/beauty to interest me plus some interesting interviews and articles that were a bit different to the ones I would normally read. I would happily buy it."

"Not my cup of tea but I feel it does a good job of speaking to a more mature audience."

Born to Ride? Don’t be without these top titles

Whether you’re a biking newbie or Evel Knievel, there’s a biking magazine out there for all. So, don your helmet, buckle up your leathers and step right this way. We have a host of motorcycle mags itching to be saved from the shelves and packed in your panniers.

Here you get everything you expect. Articles on bikes, new and old, some of the most trustworthy reviews on the market, and a bunch of event details so you don’t miss a thing on the motorcycle calendar. 

There is one difference that sets it apart though, and that is its emphasis on racing. Professional racers are profiled and interviewed with each issue, providing a real insight into the racing world. There is also info on race tracks and the best race bikes for speed-obsessives.

Released once every two months, Motorcycle Classics is a little different, as it celebrates the vintage motorcycles and nothing else. The focus is clear here: celebrating the unbeatable aesthetics of vintage models. 

The magazine features useful advice on which models are most suitable for your tastes, with reviews and glossy pictures aplenty. There is also guidance on how to look after and maintain your bike – preserving it in mint condition for longer.

This magazine appears on shelves every month and is one of the most popular and well-trusted mags on the UK market. To celebrate 30 years of The Classic Motorcycle it is undergoing a vintage-look redesign and a number of issues looking back at classic features. 

You really can’t get much more vintage than this magazine for style and content. Some articles and stories date all the way back to 1903!

Released monthly, this magazine has a very specific aim – catering to the mass of people who want to save money and self-respect and carry out maintenance work themselves, as opposed to spending money on garages. 

There is a growing market for the motorcycle fan who wishes to do it all, and really get to grips with the nitty-gritty of bike mechanics. This magazine allows them to do just that, though it does make for a more technical read.

This is an interesting publication aimed at those who live and breathe motorcycling: not just the bikes, but the lifestyle. If you fancy yourself a repressed Hell’s Angel or have tinkered with your motor until it screams bespoke, this is for you. 

Each edition includes interviews with fellow bike fans, maintenance tips and reviews for the motorcycle-obsessed.
