What’s the difference between multichannel marketing, cross-channel marketing, and omnichannel marketing?

Multichannel marketing refers to using more than one channel to market, but using the same strategy on each of them. Cross-channel marketing is the next step, where marketers use data from each channel to assist the others to drive activity. Omnichannel marketing is the end goal, where every available channel is used and marketers strategize to use data from each platform to reinforce the effectiveness of the others.
