Categorization –  Choose default areas for your content if you often publish content in the same subjects. By adding areas, you reach out to journalists who subscribe to material from Mynewsdesk. You can change them for each material you create to make the areas match the content for that specific material – remember to always stay relevant. 

By adding a subcategory, you will reach both subscribers of the main area as well as the subcategory. If you only add the main area, you will reach subscribers of the main area (not all the subcategories).

The same principle applies to regions. Add regions only when your material is aimed at a specific region and if you want to reach out to local journalists. 

If you decide to add a region, your material will be sent out to all recipients of your chosen areas throughout the country AND recipients of that specific region who only want to know about that region regardless of areas.
