eenage magazine Capricho turned fortnightly in 1996, meeting a growing demand for constant coverage of teen idols in a time when the internet was nowhere

near as prevalent as it is today. But now, with the addition of digital platforms, Capricho is able to give a sense of immediacy to its content with speed and relevance. The brand saw an explosion of print circulation between 2008-2010, driven by crazes such as Jonas Brothers, Hannah Montana, Twilight and Justin Bieber. But this was no passing phase – the title registered the same number of subscribers in January 2014 as it did in January 2010 (63,000), illustrating a strong and lasting relationship between the brand and its readers.

Also launched this year is Capricho Week – another platform for Capricho’s content. It’s aimed at girls who love to read Capricho, but can’t tear their eyes off their phones. It’s not a site, or a magazine. Every Tuesday, a new edition is released, with exclusive content produced especially for smartphones (iOS and Android).

Capricho Week interacts with the reader in various ways: » Celebrities’ pictures turn into wallpapers to ‘pimp’ phones

» Stories are illustrated with gifs and videos and have short text or lists

» In fashion and beauty, all products and clothing items have direct links to ecommerce, where the reader can shop without leaving the app

Launched on 1 April, it costs US$0.99 in the App Store and Google Play. Now, the task is to encourage subscriptions.


Another digital initiative for 2014 is Capricho TV. Monday-Friday, from 5-7pm, we broadcast live from our office TV Studio, which consists of a grid of programming produced by the editors. We broadcast programmes on idols, fashion, beauty, books and interview special guests. It works well as an efficient platform

for the dissemination of the brand, and the results have been fantastic. We have an average of 2,000 girls watching the two-hour live broadcast. After broadcast, each video exceeds 50,000 views on our YouTube channel. Daily video content with this performance for such a specific audience is rare and precious. The transmission time is set well:
