Videos are short and to the point

Most of their videos are between 15 and 30 seconds, a perfect time to stick to when busy internet users are your target audience.  People are not going to take the time to view a video over a minute or so on the web, unless it is super interesting.

 

Videos find ways to make simple things interesting

Each and every one of Target’s YouTube videos are interesting and fun to watch.  They take a lot of time figuring out ways to make simple concepts interesting and it shows.

 

Videos are clean and brand aware

Most of the videos are very clean and feature a lot of white backgrounds .  Most of the actors feature white clothing.  This is done purposely to make the products seem more interesting and make the brand look very clean.
