Thirdeyemag.com caters to the young and the young at heart. Large numbers of our target audience are of high school and college age.This is a very important market, and it is especially vital to convince young people now of the virtues of spending their money at ethical businesses instead of chain stores and socially irresponsible multi-national corporations. Young people spend a large portion of their income on music, entertainment, clothing/fashion, and alternative sports – such as snowboarding and skateboarding.
The youth market is just a portion of who you’ll be reaching out to by placing an ad in our publication. Environmentalists and the peace and justice community are very interested in the breath of fresh air that Thirdeye provides. These are folks who are already trying to make an effort to support ethical/independent businesses, and Thirdeye is the perfect guide to products, shops, cafes, and services that conscious individuals can feel good about consuming.
Lastly, there are the artists. This creative class spans all age barriers and is always on the lookout for the latest in human ingenuity. They seek inspiration, art supplies, networking, and ethical places to relax and restore balance.
