Round the 21 Wonders Alejo is in a great travel around the world, aimed to visit the 21 world wonders! In addition to this, and on top of any noteworthy fact, a new travel magazine appeared with a specific personality and different models from the earlier mags: Altair. This particular magazine will be analysed in great detail later in this paper and it will be explained why is different from the rest of travel magazines. After the fast resolution by the government, the country stabilized the traditional devaluation of the Spanish peseta. The huge demand of travel texts by the country could not continue unperceived and in , the National Geographic edits the first editions of its magazine in Spanish thanks to RBA editors Poole, This is the first place in Europe where the American magazine bets continue growing, and its second in the world after Japan Since the last years of the 90s, around twenty STM still coexist.
But this area of interest is now presented in other media ways, argues Belenguer , p. Since the last decade, it has been frequent to watch travel documentaries in all TV channels. Jarvis supports this and adds that video magazines became What is more, there are already travel guides for users interested in digital travel magazines Ibid, , p. For the magazine industry, social media represent the relationship with the client, and now both travel together in order to get the best experiences and recommendations.
Furthermore, Canalis claims that through multimedia platforms, advertisements can be achieved in a visual, easy and unique way. Holidaytruths, Gogobot or Tripadvisor are advice platforms for travellers. Taking Tripadvisor as an example, it has million users and more than million reviews and opinions Digital Company Statistics, Equally, magazines have another rivals: blogs and bloggers.
Filgueira , states that blogs are very rich because they narrate subjective experiences of others. The fact that the user directly generates its content during or after the trip becomes a beautiful source of information to comprehend how tourists or adventurers On account of this, companies choose blogs because they are a cheap marketing tool, daily updates and fast feedback.
What can be deduced from this is that digital travel guides have an advantage in the face of print magazines: the information is continuously up to date Llantada, Moreover, Filgueira concludes that on top of this, there are blogs focused on a specific multimedia content such as Video blogs, photo blogs or audio blogs, where the reader can surf with simplicity and go into detail in any topic , p. Thus, Travel 2. But are digital platforms killing print travel magazines? The clash and the pressures between print and digital are more than evident, particularly given the rapid improvement in the quality of digital publications, and the demand for them to do more than merely replicate the content of print titles online Canalis Travel magazines are rethinking their marketing strategies so that they could remain viable digitally.
From a business perspective, the cost of printing, circulating and delivering print media exceeds that of a digital version online Llantada, Thanks to technology advances, digitized media is much more practical for purchase and download. The digital medium is much more dynamic because it has the potential of embedded videos, ads and links on the same page. Thanks to the rise of Kindle, iPad or other tables, the accessibility to the average reader is huge. In fact, travel magazines have been widely predicted as a consequence of the boom in apps, blogs and the top 10 online lists.
In the last decade, a lot of people have discovered their opinions writing blogs or sharing in social networks. For online brands, print is a brilliant way Digital platforms allow to instantaneously sharing with a larger audience. But online travel magazines need to perform different strategies. Hence, magazine publishers started adding news feeds to their apps, which is a clear reason to return on a daily basis. But print STM are not dead, although plenty experts have predicted their death Belenguer, Their numbers might drop, but they will never die.
However, surviving without advertising is tough. STM derive half of their income from advertising. Print STM are able to succeed in a digital world at present because digital technologies are not universally available and printed materials are much easier to be found accidentally. Moreover, digital technologies are not stable enough to become viable alternatives to print Llantada, Therefore, in order to survive, STM need to set itself apart from the web.
Physical forms of the written word need to offer a clear and different experience, and all technological opportunities that can be used to support and interact with print are definitely a bonus and not a threat Canalis, But that was in , before the digital revolution, the global financial crisis and the clash and pressure between print and digital. They all have negatively affected the print STM industry in Spain.
Thus, it is right to affirm that the literature covering the topic of this dissertation is currently undeveloped and requires further investigation in depth. Therefore, it is clear that there is a real need to undertake a research in this area because it will be beneficial to discover the latest news associated with the STM. There are several areas open for further research. These include questions about the current number of existing STM with their differences in terms of structure, model and content statistics; the consumer behaviour of the Spanish population with the latest trends; interviews with experts in the field; the impact digitalisation had on travel magazines and photographers.
In addition, the dissertation also needs a research on the migration of readers from print to digital in specialist magazines. In brief, this study paper will disclose what has happened to magazines worldwide, focusing more on the move from print to digital and why there is a struggle with falling sales and a drop in advertising. It should be pointed out that various universities, magazine libraries and houses of experts were visited for the purpose of analysing old and new STM.
As one of the main focuses of this dissertation is to analyse all existing STM, first and foremost, the 39 print magazines created between and will be disclosed. Then, the 21 that still currently exist will be described with short individual description so that each one of them could be distinguished. Several methods of research are needed to address the questions that are raised in the literature review.
These questions are concerned with the effects that the digital revolution, the global financial crisis and the clash and pressures between print and digital had on the market. As there is no subsequent information after about the STM field, questions about the current travel magazine world should be asked. How much have mags changed and what is now the difference between them? In order to gain such information, there were chosen different professionals from the sphere to answer such queries.
Berger , p. Thus, the individuals stated earlier are a potential source of information because each of them is related to the industry in a dissimilar way. They all were interviewed in different ways, because although each of them is within the travel magazine industry, their profession varies one from another. This is important because it will disclose how one of the first STM has adapted to the market. Also, he has a rich knowledge of travel photography and Also, I wanted to discuss some facts from his book.
He is a travel writer and currently writes for viajesmagazine, which is his property, and it is only available digitally. He will also uncover some of the techniques, visions and future of his digital magazine. On the other hand, two people were interviewed on the telephone. Therefore, it was interesting to unmask the reasons and causes of such decision. The magazine was launched in November in Spain. This interview is important because Clara has the chance to work for one of the luxury travel magazines. Tino Soriano was interviewed on Facebook. He is a travel photographer at National Geographic Society.
The main purpose of my interview with him was to disclose the future of photography within the STM. He is considered as one of the best Spanish photographers up to now. He also collaborated with travel guides and high volume books, as it was the case with Planeta, Espasa or Lunwerg. He is the perfect choice to describe the STM market because of his wider vision gained throughout his professional career.
He is another travel photographer who has been working for more than 15 years as a freelancer. I interviewed him by email he has been struggling all over his career, and therefore I wanted to know his current status and the future of the STM. Samir Husni, leading expert in magazine publishing, was interviewed on Twitter. He was chosen because I wanted to ask a foreign expert in regard with the STM situation and future.
Bryan is an investigative reporter and director of special investigations for National Geographic magazine. He was chosen with the same purpose as Samir Husni: to present his idea about the STM future from a foreign point of view. Furthermore, he will be asked for some statistics regarding the evolution of National Geographic in the Spanish version in the last few years.
From another perspective, however, the second of the primary research methods used to answer the questions included street intercept surveys with people from Madrid. Driscoll states that this kind of survey tends to be exploratory and specific, and it gains a fast overview. The place is central and it is, surely, where the most people pass through.
Three different days were required to build the three charts further in the study. The days were the 5th , 6th and 7th of August On each day, the survey respondents had to answer only one question in person. In this way the surveys will get more randomness and efficacy and the number of the survey respondents will vary one day from another.
Thus, on the 5th of August there were survey respondents, followed by and in the second and third day respectively. The three survey questions above were destined to develop the image of the STM readers. Thanks to this, it could be established the consumer behaviour in the same way as the market niche travel magazines should focus on in greater degree. The objectives of the researches were to gain a clearer picture of the entire STM industry as seen through the eyes of the experts and the readers.
- Die tonnel (Afrikaans Edition).
- Paths of Stone.
- Legata e Tormentata: Una Fantasia Lesbo BDSM (Italian Edition);
- Oak Harbor;
Indeed, the intention of this paper was to update the body of literature exposed earlier and the best way to achieve that aim was by choosing the primary research methods stated above. This includes ten interviews with industry experts as well as the street interception survey that was conducted in Madrid. As the dissertation aims to analyse all existing STM, all of those stated in the literature review are presented first. Moreover, he showed some data regarding the body area of six print travel magazines this was something performed on his own accord.
The statistics are illustrated in the following table see appendix two. According to the table, four out of the six magazines have more graphic space than text. Photography therefore becomes a fundamental element and in all of the six publications the number of pictures exceeds , which clearly means that there are 1,5 photos per page. Such numbers could be considered as high because pictures have bigger size in most of the cases.
Once known the data from , it will be interesting to disclose and compare what STM had in to what they have nowadays. What should be noted from the results see appendix nine is that the total space remains the same. The main differences compared with the table from are that both magazines have increased their graphic space. Thus, it is right to say that there are fewer advertisements and an increase of graphic space in both STM. Most of STM are affected by commercial requirements and they only cover subjects where they can get advertising in.
A total of 86 features was analysed from , and therefore features from The percentage As a consequence, it should be pointed out that STM are no longer interested in writing features about economy, ethnography, arts and politics. In answer to how much have mags changed and what is now the difference between them, it has to be pointed out that the change was developed due to series of events. Those include the development and promotion of the free time and leisure; bigger sensibility in terms of native and cultural globalisation; and the editorial expansion in both digital and print regarding specialised travel magazines.
Thus, there are a couple of changes with First, STM have now a reduction of workforce, therefore the labour costs are now relatively low. In the six main STM from , the number of editors fluctuated between two and four Belenguer, The number now fluctuates between one and two.
DATOS DE INTERÉS
The number of graphic designers was between one and three, except Geo, which had five. On average, STM had between four and six freelance writers and photographers who were collaborating regularly to each travel magazine. Notwithstanding, there are several model groups that differ from other STM presently. Given that publishing houses have been searching for their niche product in the market during the last decade, there are now four different groups.
The key element that represents these publications is the long interpretative feature. Short sections including news information and tools do not exist any longer. The content pretends to have a rigorous image with seriousness in such a way that travel stories remain justified with informational examples in a cultural, historical, scientific and ecological way.
The graphic element of this group is carefully performed with big quality pictures, graphics and maps Belenguer, The text in these STM is directed towards tourism and leisure, pretending to be useful as a guide and orientation for the reader. Thus, the content insists on underlining the most favourable, positive and touristic aspects from the visited places Belenguer, With a fresh and agile writing style, these publications alternate short features with numerous sections characterised by their overloaded data guides, suggestions, excursions, diaries , accompanied with pictures and a huge proliferation of graphic resources.
This group chooses simple diagramming, correct pictures and informal texts. The key element it is the feature and next to each feature there are opinion pieces or interviews with adventurers. The publications are very personal where the adventurer- protagonist is always present and plays an important role. The most representative STM The fourth group is composed by those STM that are concerned for the human factor and the ethnographic dissemination. Travelling therefore is not considered as a touristic entertainment but as a knowledge tool of other cultures, their natural surroundings and survival.
These publications respect the environment and the cultural diversity. In addition, there are argumentative sections with opinion texts. The magazines that create this group are Orizon and Altair only on its digital platform. As a continuation from all the travel magazines stated earlier in the table between and see appendix one , the next step is to present each of those that still exist.
Therefore, each one from the 21 STM will be mentioned with short individual description. It covers topics such as gastronomy, nature and style hotels with monographs. It is directed towards modern and contemporary travellers. Monthly edited, it is well known for its monographs as well as its rich travel guides. The magazine should be outlined for great quality pictures and rich diversification of topics. An interesting fact of this magazine is that all the text is written directly towards the reader.
On its Spanish version contains between seven and eight features in every issue published monthly. International journalists write all the features and then they are translated into Spanish. It suggests an alternative way to understand the world, based on a nomadic, adventurous and bold lifestyle. It reveals in more detail the best ideas to enjoy hiking, mountain bikes and trail running.
It also includes practical guides, weekend breaks, gastronomy and nature. It combines the trips with literature. It is one of the most consolidated travel magazines with a clear line devoted to the science divulgation. It publishes large in depth features. It also contains informative sections and tools executed from the editorial department. It is perfect for features about routes and large tours. It stands out for its design, serious publications and trustworthy information.
Moreover, it counts with the international collaboration of the most prestigious mountaineers and experts. It is centred in Spanish countryside tourism with great details regarding the history, architecture, landscapes, traditions and ways of life. It offers routes for all ages and tastes.
It has changed its aspects and lines in various occasions. It has a glorious balance between its feature sections. Moreover, Viajar contains opinion articles. It contains four or five features along with short stories about close destinations weekends or short breaks. It is issued monthly in Catalan in the autonomous communities of Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic islands.
In accordance with this list, from the 39 print magazines created between and that were listed in the table at the beginning of this section, 21 still currently exist. It should be noted that the last print travel magazine created was the bimonthly Orizon in September On the other hand, the last magazine that stopped publishing was Altair in May We open brackets.
For 14 years, since , we have been sharing this editorial adventure with you, the readers. We know we cannot ask for more. But we are now unable to hold this by our own because it is exceeding our limits. This does not mean that Altair will disappear. We only open a period to reflect, seeking for a different perspective that will allow the company to continue ahead. Even if Altair distances from the kiosks and postboxes, we hope to see you soon. Contemporary travellers search for their information in other ways, other tools. This means that a new era has come. With this in mind, it seems only right to continue with one of the primary research methods: the interviews with the nine experts chosen in this dissertation.
Due to the fact that Altair closed in May , it is more than intriguing to unmask why this has happened and whether the magazine will return to the print market as stated from Baiges We will publish weekly in the digital platform and now with print, we are trying to complete the circle.
The new print issues will be published quarterly and they will have an international focus. As an example, the next one will be about Senegal followed by Uruguay and Faroe Islands. Our model will be without advertisements and only based on the readers interests. Altair has bet on this prototype and if one day our readers do not want us to be here, we will disappear. They make us stay alive and this paradigm is relevant because if the readers discover that we work for the brands and not for them, we will be in a big trouble.
Therefore, we will now only sell our magazine in specialised bookshops. If a reader is looking for quality I do not believe it will be sold in kiosks. Thus, we narrowed the concepts and now the magazine is a mixture between a book and a magazine. Our small company will write for a solvent niche that knows our brand. He believes that audio-visuals are vital and without them it is will not be possible to build any media.
From this perspective, it is probably right to affirm that digital platforms are not so profitable, especially if they are not part of a big multinational. But digital platforms not only offer online travel magazines, but also travel blogs. Those travel blogs come and disappear all the time. According to Statista there are more than million blogs on the Internet. But what do blogs offer than magazines do not have?
This means that a reader will have higher expectations for a publication in an online magazine than in a blog. On the other hand, Canalis maintains that travel blogs emphasize the engagement between the writer and the reader more than online travel magazines. Also, it should be noted that some travel blogs contain affiliate advertising whereas online travel magazines have more ads. In addition to this, interactive magazines could be downloaded and customers can access them even offline.
But blogs live on the web and are difficult to read when a reader is offline. However, the freedom of travel bloggers encourages readers to be more sensitive to the motivations of the blogger, and this makes their relationship stronger. Readers therefore expect honesty about dealings with brands, which affects the effectiveness of advertising. This is because the relationship between a blogger and a brand will have a bigger impact on the publicity with blog readers, compared to readers of online travel magazines. Hence, the effectiveness of advertising is better on blogs than on magazines because readers consider bloggers as friends and any recommendation is a positive attitude towards the reader and the brand Llantada, His magazine started digitally in and is not using any techniques to survive as a magazine because it did not receive any financial help.
Nowadays it has only visitors per month. They take advantage of an existing magazine name like his case and to make matters worse, they start filling it with advertisements and rubbish. He said that the best four STM are the ones that will outlast in print. The same will happen to the digital magazines linked with strong business groups. They are losing money because other STM are supported by more profitable parts of the business.
In order to approve this statement, it was necessary to ask a big multinational about their situation. She said that her company does not feel comfortable after the Internet revolution and the financial crisis. What prevails over all is our editorial quality and international power.
Therefore, it seems that big multinationals are also having difficulties and most of them are more devoted to digital media. Bryan Christy investigative reporter at National Geographic Society was asked whether he knew what the situation in Spain was in regard with the print publications of National Geographic. He said that digital magazines are eating the ones in print essentially because they are more useful to advertise Christy, In the USA there are more than 7.
He stated that those subscriptions started gradually guaranteeing more and more income for the online industry since it first started in But the current readers are the last generations. Christy did not promise, but he said that if there was any chance to look at some statistics in regard with the number of print magazines sold by National Geographic in Spain, he was going to send them to me. Luckily, Christy replied to me with the following details shown in the table see appendix three. The table shows that in , National Geographic reduced the number of print copies sold by half in relation to This data is very interesting because even the best travel magazine in the world is showing decreasing figures.
It should be noted that there is a constant drop since the financial crisis. His position was that nowadays people travel in such a way that the supply is big and most of them cede their material for free so that it can be published somewhere. Moreover, readers have changed print magazines for digital alternatives. Unfortunately, this is something that cannot happen any longer in Spain Soriano, This is important because earlier it was stated that images cover plenty of space within travel magazines, standing out more than texts in most of the cases. Azurmendi said that he barely has stopped fighting with this industry and he had always had to do lots of work Azurmendi, It could be shared innumerable times, but at the end it is unpaid, and sometimes it is not even signed.
He said that in he started noticing the effect of the crisis within the company. The manager started calling him less and less, until he left Viajar in because of the salary. These days, he does not like the methodology of the magazine.
