Your business will benefit from attracting more customers by filling your website with well-planned content.

Just because you have a fantastic blog, sales page, or gallery of images published on your website doesn’t mean that your work in creating content is complete.

You should share the content as widely as possible to reach more people.

Content distribution is a crucial marketing strategy to grow your clientele and get more eyes on your amazing content.

What is content Distribution?

Content distribution is the sharing of your content beyond your website.

It is important to increase brand awareness and push the message of your content to new clients.

You might distribute your content:

Guest posts on relevant media/news outlets.

Use paid content Distribution, which includes paid ads or appearances on third-party content.

The list below makes it sound easy to distribute content.

Particularly when it comes to sharing your content.

Content distribution has become a major issue

You can post to a variety of channels, including Instagram, YouTube and Pinterest. Other options include business and community groups, directories, and Reddit.

You can post your content using a wide range of media – including videos, blogs, podcasts, and slideshows.

It’s never been easier to reach your audience in a way that they enjoy.

You may be tempted to try every possible option in order to reach your maximum potential.

You can even find lists of places where you should share your content.

There’s no need (or obligation) to try and do everything.

It would be exhausting to try and reshare all your content. I do not recommend it. And it could harm your chances of sharing your content successfully.

It may hurt your chances of sharing your content successfully.

My experience has taught me that the key to success is carefully choosing your distribution channels.

You will get more engagement if you appear on channels where your target audience already hangs out.

Where there is quality engagement, you’ll have a greater chance of getting good leads.

Likely, your audience doesn’t consume everything on the internet.

Time is a precious commodity, so we tend to be loyal to fewer outlets.

It is important to identify the channels that your audience enjoys and then focus on providing quality content ONLY there.

Find the right channels

Your ideal client should be the focus of your content strategy.

You may already be aware of where your ideal customers hang out on the internet.

You may have done some work on audience personas.

If you haven’t completed your personas or it has been some time since you did, you should look into this.

What social media platforms do they use, and, most importantly, how are they engaging by liking and commenting?

Do they have a favorite news or entertainment channel? Note the name of the news outlets and the type of articles that they share or link to.

What is the most popular media format – text, video, photos, or audio?

Use this information to guide you to the best channels for sharing.

You should now have a manageable and small list of sites where you can distribute your content.

All you have to do now is decide which content and messages to share with each channel.

Owned, Earned and Paid Distribution

SEMrush’s guide to content dissemination identifies the three distribution methods: owned, earned, and paid.

Owned These are the channels that you control and hold, like your website, blog, and email marketing.

Earned This is when your content is shared on channels and platforms that you do not control. Earned Distribution includes influencer marketing, guest posting, backlinks within articles, and brand mentions on forums, communities, and in the media.

PaidDistributing paid content through channels like PPC, targeted ads, sponsored content, and social media ads is known to get fast results. You need to manage your budget carefully and evaluate your ROI.

You can decide whether you want to use paid, owned, or earned marketing based on the type of content that you have and your budget.

I suggest that you maximize your opportunities by pushing as much organic, free growth as possible.

The type of content that you wish to share will determine the distribution method.

If you are a photographer, you can share your new photos on your channels before using social media sites like Instagram or Pinterest.

Once you’ve exhausted all these options, it’s time to look for paid opportunities for your photographs.

Could a journalist, for example, use them in a piece?

You can reduce the amount of time it takes to create new content by repurposing your existing content and distributing it widely.

How to arrive

You can now integrate your distribution strategy into your central Content Strategy.

Here are some key points that I encourage my clients to keep in mind when they begin the journey of sharing content.

Mix your content up

Posting the same content over and over again on one social media channel is a bad idea.

You are encouraged to make use of as many features as you can.

Avoid and only uploading single photos. If you can, add sound or music.

Post a carousel or group of photos.

Then, turn them into short videos now and then.

Honesty is the best policy. Be upfront about how frequently you can post or what you can afford to outsource. Stick to your commitment. Regular attendance is better than a sporadic one.

Share your content. Create your content schedule

It’s a no-brainer to amplify your content in order to reach as many of your ideal clients as possible.

You spent a lot of time, money, and energy to make it. Please don’t waste it.

Create a content schedule to ensure you are sharing your content as effectively as possible.

You can organize your thoughts and get a good overview of the content you’ll be creating.
