The Target approach is different. With more than three decades in the business and relationships with media outlets and their affiliates across the country, the Target team works directly and relentlessly to ensure that our clients get the best rates, best placement and the best response to their advertising dollars. We do not work exclusively through ‘rep agencies’ or apply a one-size-fits-all model to your advertising needs. We build every plan from the ground up and tweak it throughout the flight of advertising while demanding the absolute best rates – because not everyone pays the same amount for the same advertising!
