CasaFacile, the monthly edited by Francesca Magni, is now on newsstands with a completely new look. The Mondadori Group magazine, a point of reference for furniture and daily home living enthusiasts, has strengthened its lifestyle positioning and integrated it with its service mission, along with a particular focus on content circularity from print to the web and social media.
While maintaining its ‘beating heart’ of simplicity, spontaneity and engagement, the new CasaFacile will be even more qualified and reliable, with a fresh, lively and enthusiastic approach that aims to create a unique style with which all women can see themselves and identify.
“CasaFacile, that has always been an authoritative guide, but also friendly towards taste, style and trends, is a magazine that is alive and based on a daily relationship with its readers, which is also the source of its richness,” declared the editor Francesca Magni. “To engage the reader even more, we have developed a design layout that literally take you inside the houses (dream houses!) to capture solutions, details and designs that can be copied (with plans and budgets). There will be a vote for the house of the month and a final survey on the choice of interiors; just two of the new features to be shared. Home lovers have a talent for “possible dreams” and know how to make their home more theirs every day. In fact, one of the things that CasaFacile and its readers have in common is precisely the determination to move from the dream to reality”, the editor concluded.
The new CasaFacile
By remaining loyal to the characteristics that have made it successful over the years, every month the new CasaFacile will offer: more pages (+25%), more homes (5 rather than 4), more style cases (3 homes in 3 styles), more services (8/16 pages in the new Focus section, with planning outlines, how to advice, and a special column on budgeting), more before and afters (with a dedicated section), more décor; more shopping (30 pages of ideas), more trends (‘ideas for the home by…’ bloggers and Instagrammers); more green and more involvement of readers (surveys, vote for the home of the month, call to action and social media sharing). A clean and fresh layout and high-impact visuals, protagonists also on the cover, all contribute to making the monthly both refined and elegant, in step with the times and in line with the evolution of trends in furniture and interior design.
Casafacile.it and the CF Style community
CasaFacile is now much more than a magazine. After the recent design that has made it even more attractive, with more images and easier to ‘navigate’, Casafacile.it has traffic numbers worth a monthly average of 305,000 unique users and an average of 830,000 page views per month (Source: Audiweb AwDatabase average in last 3 months/channel home DM).
In 7 years of active presence on social media CasaFacile has also expanded its team of bloggers and created a team of 64 ambassadors of the CF style, creatives who share the style and actively participate in the magazine’s initiatives. To this should be added the more than 100 CF style professionals (architects and interior designers) all over Italy who have been specially selected to be available to readers and users who want personalised advice; i.e. to those who buy the magazine every month, the over 310,000 fans active every day on Facebook and the 132,000 followers on Instagram.
Special projects and events
There will also be many opportunities to meet and share the passion that unites both the staff and readers: that of homes and their stories. CasaFacile will in fact also organise ad hoc courses, new workshops and labs, as well as special projects. Including the Academy, training days for the more than 60 bloggers on the CasaFacile teams; Meet the Blogger, events to bring together some of the bloggers on the team in workshops and labs, and Design Weekends with activities open to the public in collaboration with leading furniture brands. CasaFacile will also take part in all of the main design, do-it-yourself, décor and gardening events.
The success of CasaFacile
CasaFacile is a unique brand in the market of reference, able to engage clients from different sectors, also thanks to the original project formats it proposes. Projects that are amplified across the different platforms to create new and varied communication solutions.
The launch of the new CasaFacile will be supported by significant communication campaign on the web and social media, as well as a TV commercial on channels dedicated to furniture and design, as well as targeted activities in the large-scale retail area.
CasaFacile is available on newsstands this week at the price of €1.90.
