Content, whether in the form of a video, a newsletter, an ad, or anything else, needs to reach the target audience at the right time to make an impression. A good content distribution strategy, then, finds the best ways to provide content to audiences.
Content distribution involves using at least one of a number of distribution channels: paid, owned, or earned. Paid distribution channels include advertisements; owned channels include company newsletters or websites; earned channels include shares and reviews.
Targeted marketing is a marketing strategy which identifies an audience that is most likely to buy a product or service and subsequently creates a marketing campaign designed specifically to advertise said product or service to the target audience, using advertisements and promotional messages. This allows different companies to hone in on certain market segments, creating a "specialty" and possibly lowering competition with similar companies.
