Why advertise in SixDegrees?
English language asset
Not all consumers understand Finnish even though they live in Finland. There are 124,000 immigrants who live permanently in Finland. This is around the same number of people who live in the city of Oulu! From this group 80% have moved to Finland because of work, marriage or study. 74% of readers choose SixDegrees because it is in English and almost half of the readers are not fluent in Finnish.
SixDegrees is unique
The readers say that they like SixDegrees because it is interesting, topical and in English. Many readers (58%) say that they get information from SixDegrees that is not offered by other media.
Positive attitude to adverts
SixDegrees readers pay attention to adverts and make consuming decisions based on adverts. Almost 90% of SixDegrees readers say that they find the adverts in the magazine useful.
