Examples of studies and research opportunities exclusive to Pacific Magazines:

Acorn Panel

Pacific Magazines have a wealth of consumer involvement and information within the company, collected from a myriad of sources including our primary research and our editorial and brand interaction with readers. Each of our magazines have a unique connection with its readers. Many of these consumers are more than happy to give their opinion, not only on the content of the magazine, but on a much wider range of topics. 

To share this 'goldmine' of consumer involvement, Pacific Insights can provide feedback on advertiser issues and topics as part of our partnerships. 'Acorn Ideas' - Pacific Insights online panel allows Australians to share their thoughts and opinions on anything and everything that they have a point of view about. This gives us an ongoing dialogue with readers on our brands, social issues and advertising impressions.
