At RebelMouse, we talk a lot about distribution: distribution tools, distributed audiences, distributed publishing. As we kick off 2017, we want to make what we mean clear when we say "distributed publishing."

A Rebel's Definition of Distributed Publishing

dis·trib·uted pub·lish·ing
/dəˈstribyo͞oted pəbliSHiNG/

noun

The seamless process of creating and optimizing content for maximized audience reach across channels and devices.

In other words, create once, publish everywhere that matters.


Distributed Publishing Is Crucial

To access content online twenty years ago, audiences typically typed in a URL and went straight to a known website. Slightly savvier web users started leveraging search engines. But for the most part, as a content publisher, it was pretty simple: You executed straightforward ad buys on traditional marketing channels to build a reputation. The payoff? A consistent, reliable audience that consumed the news and information you provided.

Today, according to Parse.ly, Google and Facebook drive 80% of referral traffic to digital publishers. These powerful channels wield and constantly tweak mysterious algorithms that dictate how content gets surfaced, typically leaving you in the dark about how to stay relevant. Plus, audiences now increasingly rely on mobile to discover content. If your content is not truly optimized for mobile, you're missing an important part of your readership.

In a nutshell, you're likely struggling to 1) keep up with the digital landscape, 2) find your audience in a way that doesn't pile on the costs, and/or 3) simply pinpoint where to start.
