Live Life magazine, the brainchild of qualified pharmacist and consumer health and wellness industry expert Fanie Hendriksz, is aimed at the high end consumer and promises to address health, medical and lifestyle matters in a fresh and easy-to-read format.
Asked what inspired him to create the magazine, Hendriksz says: “I became tired of reading the same impractical, irrelevant health and lifestyle articles. I identified a vacancy for relevant, fresh content. There is a need for pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and general health and wellness companies to directly engage with their target audiences – Live Life is the connecting point.”
Distribution: Through its association with distribution experts, Free Radical Media, Live Life magazine guarantees a targeted circulation to 50,000 households through the free distribution of its print edition, on a bi-monthly basis, over and above the digital application’s audience. The first printed edition will be distributed throughout Gauteng in December 2011. A Western Cape edition is set to be launched in the near future.
