The traditional magazine as we knew it,  is officially dead. No sadness from us that way of thinking was much outdated and too much fluff used to promote luxury brands. New media is very different so no surprise luxury lifestyle magazines are becoming very popular. Which is why smart luxury marketers need to leverage this relationship more.

So who has the best influence and engagement among luxury lifestyle magazines? How a luxury lifestyle magazine or portal interacts with their target audience is essential. Who they perceive the audience to be is what distinguishes them from the rest. For luxury media buyers they should consider what audience they want to connect with and how a luxury lifestyle magazine engages with this audience.

Top Five Luxury Lifestyle Magazines For 2012

1. Bloomberg Pursuits

The debut issue of Bloomberg Pursuits, a global lifestyle magazine produced by the editors of Bloomberg Markets, showcases the ambitious endeavors of people like Jim Glickenhaus. The money manager redesigns Ferraris to make them even faster. Multi-millionaire George David is more daring – he almost lost his life racing a yacht after it capsized in the Atlantic. Chinese investor Peter Kwok prefers to spend his free time tending to his vineyards in Bordeaux. The stories in Pursuits are about people who live just like they invest – with a lot of passion and verve.

We truly believe you will not find any fake rich reality housewives in this luxury lifestyle magazine. In short, this is REAL money.

5. Lusso

Their belief is that Quality is everything. Traditionally, the media has struggled to find the right way to address and reach the “HNW target group”. Since launching in 2004, Lusso feels that they have had no such problems because they don’t think of a “HNW target group” or “demographic”. Instead, they think of high net worth individuals as precisely what they are: individual.
