[The Product Is You is an occasional Murketing series collecting advertising that is aimed at advertisers: Magazines or television networks packaging up their consumers — that is, you, the potential ad target — in ways designed to attract advertisers. Previous installments here.]

Here, in an from a trade journal, some insight into how Fuse, a cable music channel, thinks about its viewers. Regarding this “brand groupie,” we learn that: “Everything in her life is influenced by her music.” Thus, Fuse is the place to influence her — to “captivate trendsetting adults, 18-34.”

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.

Here are a couple of links to a couple of NYC subways ads geared to advertisers. I took the pictures sometime in late April–around the time of the upfronts.
The first advertises Bravo’s Affluencers:
The second touts Oxygen’s viewers as “trenders. spenders recommenders”
Here is a link to my post about them.

That affulencers thing was the subject of the very first installment of The Product Is You.

I had not seen the Oxygen one, though, and it’s a great example. Loved your writeup.
