Target gets into reality TV for back to school

Target goes after college students with Bullseye University reality show

Target started it's back to school (college) marketing campaign with a reality-based digital campaign.

Viewers are able to interact with the roommates, click and buy wire-based furniture or bedding, as well as attend activities at the university student lounge. The National Retail Federation in the U.S. said the back to school season is the most profitable after year-end holidays. Read more here. See Bullseye University:
