Reach Your Target Audience
Best rates, best methods, best team
The Target approach is different. With more than three decades in the business, we have developed strong relationships with numerous 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 placements, and best responses 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!

When we call a media outlet the person on the other end of the phone – the advertising directors, sales managers, and station heads – know who we are and what we expect; the best rates and the best placements. Known for our experience, unsurpassed knowledge of the regulatory environment, and relentless price negotiations.

market research And media Planning
At Target we know that since every media market’s mediums have different pricing and penetration, no combination is consistently the right method. Target's steady and thorough approach to market research always provides our client's with plenty of options to choose from, guidance to help make that choice, and then our dogged determination to get the best pricing for it.
We were first to create custom Nielsen and Rentrak political ratings for our clients that served two purposes. First, it gives our clients more focused and targeted ad buys. We take ratings research from data that is universally used by those who buy television or radio ads, and convert it to a custom set of ratings based specifically on our client’s audience. We accomplish this by using data matches and proprietary or commercially available lists related to the client’s determined targets. Second, Target then uses these ratings to negotiate with stations. We are able to go into negotiations knowing what the advertising time is worth to our client, and not just what it is worth to the station. This process enables us to get the best rates possible for each client’s specific needs. Stations price advertising time based on what ratings services say it is worth to them, while our ratings tell us what the advertising time is actually worth to our clients—a big difference!
Target utilized this method before any other media buyer in our industry. Target was also one of the first to work with Rentrak using their set top box data to customize our buys and negotiate better rates.
Every time in every market, Target's team analyzes the cost, efficacy, and penetration of every medium available to determine what ratio best serves our clients.
Digital Media Strategies
Too often in advertising the digital portion of advertising is treated as a separate measure, and by a different company. That is not the Target method. We believe you have to consider your advertising budget and approach holistically to create the most effective plan.
Our team is just as comfortable building a custom digital and online advertising plan as we are assembling traditional advertising plans. How much online, social, and digital advertising is needed is purely a factor of the client’s goal – but our plan will not bifurcate our approach between traditional and digital advertising. To us, there is no difference: we recommend what will have the greatest and most positive impact for you – irrespective of the method.
Initially, we determine the appropriate allocations of your media plan, including the digital budget. Once the digital budget has been earmarked, we outline specific long term and short term goals for your digital campaign. Upon launch, we continually optimize advertising placements and messages to achieve those goals.
We target the client's ads across all forms and venues in the digital advertising space: mobile, web, social, search, and pre-roll. It is important to know that Target does not simply make ‘network’ buys, which is commonplace for many digital firms. This results in both better placement and better pricing.
