Strategically Managing COVID Impacts on Business


The world around us has changed. As the Coronavirus pandemic began impacting our day-to-day lives and our nation adapted to a new way of living – focused more on staying home and staying safe – we quickly saw a surge in sales across many of our categories at Target. While our teams were adapting to COVID and its impacts on their own lives, they were challenged with rapidly changing trends in their businesses!

Improving Content Health to Drive Online Sales


Target recently implemented a Content Health Scorecard that is sent to each vendor on biweekly cadence. This scorecard consists of an item level content audit based on product pages for each item in a vendor’s assortment. An overall score (ranging from 0-100) is calculated on each scorecard indicating the overall completeness of a vendor’s online content with the goal of strengthening the shop-ability and sales conversion for a guest.

Adapting to Unique Business Models


A new vendor with a very unique business model and relationship to Target required Signature’s assistance in analyzing growth opportunities and improving communication with the Target Merchants. The vendor felt that there was a disconnect between the results that they were driving and the communication of these efforts to Target.



Valued SIGNATURE Partner

“We have a highly seasonal business that requires constant maintenance, high attention to detail and fast reaction times with our retailers. Signature does an outstanding job of maintaining positive relationships with our retailer at all levels of the organization which allows us the opportunity to quickly partner with the right people to make decisions. Our retail partners are continuously moving buyers from one position to another and Signature has relationships with individuals outside our product category which are important as they typically already have a relationship established when a new buyer is announced.”

Sr. Buyer – Baby Gear & Toys

“Signature Insights approaches their work with curiosity and a sharp focus on driving results. Their support in assortment planning and leadership in driving digital growth has been a factor for why the Baby Gear business has grown more share.”

Valued SIGNATURE Partner

“We have worked with her (Signature Business Manager) for several years and she is an integral part of our team. She provides key insights, has a firm retail landscape understanding, and provides clear, action-oriented recommendations which provides us an edge over our competition. I would recommend the Signature team not only for the value that they bring with the initial sale into the retailer, but also for their ongoing management of every program that we are able to sell.”
