Remco

I LOVE the title, because it is totally provoking and redefines the meaning of Pink! From the day we are born we are associated with colors, boys are blue and girls are pink, how smart to call a professional women's magazine PINK Magazine. Business week wrote an interesting review about the magazine and it seems that Pink is not just a name its a voice for professional women that want to be heard.

Europe has probably more of a hang up on the color than the US has, women from many fortune 500 companies have not been scared to be associated with the color PINK, CEO of Pepsi Cola is even on the cover...........that's pretty cool.

Just my observation as a marketing person.

PINK? I think it takes hutzpa to name your magazine PINK! Afterall we women have been trying to make ourselves more like men for years. Embracing the difference may be just what we should have done all along!

I think Remco and Rieman are married to the two founders of The Pink Magazine.

I want to know more about people's thoughts on PINK magazine. Do you think it will succeed or fail? Can it compete in this already saturated market of women's magazines? PINK the title, I want to know more about how people view that. I am a student and we are actually working on a research project about this magazine. We are trying to find an interesting hypothesis to go on. If anyone has ideas, suggestions, I would appreciate your thoughts! PS, I personally think the mag might tough it out. Its simple, chic, and crosses barriers of business and women interest topics seamlessly.

I agree with your comments though I do love the graphics on the website! The idea is good just not well named. I am one of those who wore black and sometimes navy while filling my weekend wear in hues of pink!

I think it's a great read and it's about time there was a magazine like it. But, as a young twenty something, I don't think it speaks to my age group. I like the concept and I hope it takes off. The womens magazine market may be saturated, but I don't think the current offerings are representative of what we really want to be reading.

I think the name is horrible; it sounds like a porno magazine or a fashion book (but honestly, my first thought was porno).

You are correct, the flash on the Web site is annoying, but then the entire site has a "not-quite-baked," rather amatuerish look & feel.

I think the title is silly, but purpose is good. Do they have any competition in their field? Are there other commercial business media for women?

And how are they doing? Does anyone know?

I wonder how many of the commenters here are Pink employees and/or marketers? Muy transparent ...

Seriously, as a professional woman, I'm hoping this is a joke -- and then, of course, if it is, it's an offensive one. Who's going to take this seriously? Even if one can get past the very obvious (and crude) reference to female genetalia, the stale sexist stereotype just wears me out. I'm surprised you didn't dot the "I" in the logo with a pink puffy heart.

I'll buy a female-targeted magazine called "Pink" when someone publishes a male-targeted hotrod magazine called "Tiny Penis."

How many folks would be equally giddy if the magazine had named itself Snatch?
I think it's tasteless. Surely you can find something, say, businesslike for a business journal, without conjuring feminine frippery or female genitalia.

bleah.

kkm

have you people who are fussing not read into the website at all? or are you just hopelessly stuck in your second wave feminist mindsets - the people at PINK magazine are taking the word/frame of thought/connotation/idea of pink, and making it their own. you people are saying that corporate vice presidents and women ceo-s should only wear black or navy blue or beige to work? who is stuck in a draconian state of mind now?

and as for marketing - they have us talking about it, don't they?

The best creative ideas are ones that you actually CAN love or hate.

You people who associate the title pink with female genetalia are, for a lack of a better word, perverse. You are naive and childish. I think the title is very appropriate. Stop reading into everything. Get off your high horse and join reality. It is unbelievable, because the women's movement suffers most due to the people who think this way. I've seen the magazine, and hope it does very well.

It's ironic that this female business magazine was started on the back of a business run by two men...

I am subscribing to that magazine... as someone who wants to launch her business, it seems like it would be invaluable. But I do agree with some commenters that the name is a little off putting. A little girly!

Came across a very cool site this AM called Savor the Success (http://www.savorthesuccess.com). You may want to check it out since they have an amazing community of women and membership is free. I'll see you in one of their virtual cafes!
