B2B Staff Writers
Journalist / Editor / Writer - Digital / Web / Media - , United Kingdom
|Job Title||B2B Staff Writers|
You love writing about the games industry, and we need content. We’re looking for a few freelance writers to contribute across our trade-facing editorial channels.
The purpose is to write, edit and promote content for the b2b editorial brands at Steel Media, which include BlockchainGamer.biz and BeyondGames.biz primarily, but also feeding into PCGamesInsider.biz, TheVirtualReport.biz and maybe even our flagship mobile title PocketGamer.biz.
Much of this will be written news for the site, but will also include contributing features and interviews, plus occasionally feeding into brand extensions like the Top 50 list booklets, podcasts, the Mobile Games Awards ceremonies and events like Pocket Gamer Connects.
Freelance website writers
Our sites report to the industry about gaming, delivering the biggest news, features and interviews to get the inside scoop on what makes this multi-billion business tick. It is the job of the editorial team to create news, features, interviews, event coverage and other items in this space, and provide utility to professionals who work in the sector.
Our sites serve a variety of sectors:
You can see that they are all adjacent, but what they have in common is content about the industry. We inform the people working in these verticals about what’s going on in the field. It’s about people, places and investments.
This is a contract/freelance role where you’ll work with the editorial teams to report on the news (and create other content as directed, including conducting interviews and features if necessary) as well as other day-to-day editorial output as needed by the site. As well as writing daily content for the site, as a contributor to the editorial team, you will support the industry event activities run by the company and build editorial opportunities to engage the website audience.
Please note this is a good starting role for a business writer. None of these sites reviews games or delivers tips and guides. You would be covering the industry beat, often interpreting press releases and following what’s hot in the gaming business world.
Tasks will naturally evolve with market trends and changing focus in the company, but the initial focus would aim to be:
Depending on your availability and the needs of the sites, you may be invited to represent the editorial brands at national and international events and conferences, reporting from them and networking with the games community. We might ask you to support Steel Media’s events, including Pocket Gamer Connects series, BeyondGames.live and the Big Indie Pitch. This may include attending, helping source guests and content, greeting and hosting, moderating panels and sessions, or promoting (including the writing of marketing materials) as necessary.
Your skills and experience
This is a good starting position for a b2b journalist ready to learn the ropes of niche areas of the games industry.
