Topics allow you to Filter Content by Reader Preference. If your newsletter contains a lot of content, you could allow your readers to filter content based on the topics they're interested in. You can still ensure some content appears to everybody, but other news items would then appear based on the readers' preferences - helping to keep your communications as relevant as possible.
To allow your readers to filter their content, they'll need to be added to a Topic. Adding Topics to your sign-up forms gives your readers the opportunity to opt-in to a Topic, you can also Apply Topics to your People; use the instructions below to Add Topics to a Sign-up form.
