For network-wide content, you have to go to that network's admin interface.  
At the bottome of the page, you have a "Network content" section, in which 
you can assign existing or new content to specific pages and areas.

For node specific content, there are two basic approaches (in most scenarios, 
you will use a combinaison of both)

Content completely unique to a node (menus, logos, etc.):  This approach is 
analogous to Network-wide content:  Go to the node's admin interface, and 
place new or existing content.

Group of site specific but related content (an art exhibit, historical 
tidbits, etc.):  Create a content group object containing the different 
content elements you want to display.  Assign the content group network wide 
(see above).  For each of the elements, select the allowed nodes for display.

For displaying a single piece of content (not part of a group of related 
content) at multiple hotspots:  A good example would be the RSS feed of a 
local merchant association.  You can use either approach.  
1-Make the content piece reusable (click the checkbox), and follow the 
instructions for Content completely unique to a node above.  Superficially 
simple, but very tedious to manage afterwards.
2-Create a content "group" with a single element.  Slightly more steps for 
initial setup (but less total mouse click). The big advantage is that you can 
then see at a glance at exactly which hotspots the content is displayed, and 
modify the list.
