What is Narrowcasting?

Narrowcasting is a media message sent to a highly targeted audience. Unlike broadcasting, narrowcasting is also considered a form of niche marketing. It has been around since the days of radio. In modern practice, it spans traditional direct mail, TV, email marketing, paid search, online video, and in-person event marketing. Trade shows can also be valuable for business-to-business (B2B) marketing.
