Haymarket Magazines is launching its first consumer magazine about
the internet with the net, which hits the newsstands in June.
Haymarket, which publishes consumer magazines such as Stuff and
FourFourTwo, as well as Campaign, is targeting the net at readers who
are interested in the internet, but not obsessed by it. The magazine
will direct readers to the best websites so they can maximise their use
of the internet.
Mark Payton, group editor of the net, explained: ’This will be a clear,
concise but entertaining internet magazine that will let readers find
what they want without having to battle with search engines.’
There will be three main sections to the monthly title: news and
features section; a step-by-step guide to the internet; and listings
pages for the best websites, indexed by subject area.
The first issue, published on 18 June, will have an introductory price
of pounds 1.99, going up to pounds 2.99 afterwards. The print run for
the first issue will be more than 200,000.
