The best of print and digital

With smart writing, spectacular photography and striking design, the print edition of Bayou City, published six times a year, will be mailed to and shared with affluent readers in close-in neighborhoods. Enhancing the print magazine, our augmented reality application, Bayou City Now, lets readers unlock Bayou City experiences by accessing enhanced editorial and advertising content, from viewing an advertiser’s video, to buying items in an editorial product spread, to dialing a company’s number directly from the app. Bayou City magazine is also available in a digital edition that has been reflowed and enhanced for tablet devices and offers additional multimedia content across all mobile devices. Bayou City Daily, our email newsletter and destination website, are updated daily with clever, smart, sophisticated, informative, experiential, fresh content that makes Bayou City so interesting.

Making connections Our Bayou City is filled with experiences—from embarking on gastronomic adventures created by inspiring chefs and restaurateurs; to exploring neighborhoods, festivals and events; to unearthing unique finds from stylish designers and boutiques. We are constantly connected through our mobile devices and yet we continue to miss too many of these experiences. So, Bayou City is about connecting readers to these experiences across multiple platforms: readers move from perusing compelling articles in the magazine, to discovering local experiences in our daily newsletters, to learning more about close-in businesses with interactive ads, videos and sponsorships. We look forward to connecting readers with your business by spotting the trends you’re starting, reporting the experiences you’re offering and showcasing the products, services and events you’re promoting.

| Lifestyle Spenders Bayou City readers are more than their demographics; they are lifestyle spenders who invest in their aspiring lives. They enjoy trendy urban living, buy from local businesses and pay a premium for lifestyle products, services and experiences. Bayou City connects these consumers—our readers—with local businesses. By understanding these unique consumers, businesses can design ads and publish sponsored content relevant to Bayou City readers’ needs.

How They Choose

40-something challenges With the

Real-life experiences Luxury is no longer

target age in the mid-40s, lifestyle spenders are interested in looking and feeling young. In their personal lives, they want to know the latest products and trends in food, fitness, health, wellness and beauty. And in their careers, where they are finding themselves working with younger colleagues, they strive to be more fashion-and tech-savvy.

defined by the purchase price or the image of a brand-name retailer or product designer. Instead, true luxury is the promise of a real-life experience, from a romantic evening out to a personal fashion makeover.

Three generations Lifestyle spenders

exist in a multigenerational world focused on themselves, their children and their parents. Infants may be joining the family. Older children are leaving for college. Parents are beginning to need homecare services or assisted living. And in between, our readers may just need time for themselves. The point is this: Lifestyle spenders purchase products and services for themselves and family members of all ages. Urban living Lifestyle spenders may work

at home (requiring an office or studio), get in shape at home (turning a room into a gym) and grow organic food (turning a lawn or patio into a garden). They seek both conventional and unconventional products and services for their homes and gardens.

Going local Today’s consumers are shifting

their spending to local businesses. Instead of an out-of-town getaway, they book a “staycation” at a local hotel or resort. Rather than preparing dinner at home every night, they dine regularly at their neighborhood bistros and eateries. And instead of driving across town, they frequent their favorite local experts, services and boutiques. Lifestyle trends Trends change the way

consumers live, work and play: from going green, to getting fit, to using new mobile technology. Our readers use these trends—spotted and reported in Bayou City—to make decisions on the businesses they visit, the products they purchase and the expertise they seek. Connect with Bayou City readers: lifestyle spenders seeking

exciting experiences, spending on local opportunities and following current trends.
