Today’s episode is all about media; in particular earned, owned and paid media. There are all different schools of thought on the relevance of this mix. Some people fully believe that you should never need to pay for media exposure, some people believe that you should only and always use your own media channels that you control. Bottom line, there are several schools of thought on this, and together, we’re going to get to the truth of the matter and lay out a process that can help you make the best determination on this for your marketing needs.

Owned Media: Owned Media is media that you actually own, and you control how that media is publicized, who it can be publicized to, and when they have access to it.
Shared Media: This is media, or copy and pictures that you own , but, they are hosted on social media platforms that are owned by other entities. You own the content that is published to your social media platforms.
Earned Media: Your own original content that you are delivering, but the vehicle is not one that you have any control over.Traditionally, earned media has been the name given to publicity generated through PR exposure.
Paid Media: This is simply when You buy ads on social media, on blogs, on digital magazines, on YouTube and other such platforms.This can be as expensive or as frugal as your budget can absorb.
