Successful Campus Media Campaigns: Target
This week’s post in our successful campus media campaigns series explores how retail giant Target reached thousands of students with two successful back-to-school campus media campaigns. Learn how you can achieve your business goals with similar college media strategies.
Target's Back-to-School Campus Campaign
Target is a general merchandise retailer with stores in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. 75% of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a Target store!
We ran two separate back-to-school campus media campaigns for Target. The first was designed to reach college students on multiple campuses, encouraging them to shop their local Target stores for everyday necessities. The goal of the second was to raise awareness about new stores in the vicinity of several campuses, including Florida State University and Ohio State University.
In both cases, we used traditional out of home (OOH) campus advertising to reach students where they learn, live, eat, work and play. Strategically placed campus ads concentrate your campaign on your intended viewers and generate repeat exposure. To meet Target’s goals, we purchased and placed traditional advertising on newspaper kiosks, campus bus shelters, and inside buses on campus routes in the designated market areas.
