Figures released by the National Readership Survey show that Asda magazine is the most widely read women's monthly magazine title in the UK, with a readership of 5.6 million, clearly demonstrating how much readers love this title (NRS Apr 13- Mar 14). Independent research emphasises the effectiveness of Asda magazine. 72% of readers say they have gone on to purchase something as a result of reading the magazine (Brass, February 2013), with 68% of respondents agreeing that reading the magazine had a positive impact on their perception of Asda.
"We work really closely with our Insight team to understand how our customers are feeling each month and offer them solutions that empower; meal ideas, products, articles and support. Our magazine is defying the decline in print media consumption because we're following our customers agenda and not our own. We understand our customer and that
resonates with them and drives loyalty. There are very few retailer magazines brave enough to step away from the 'foodie' benchmark and have fun."
