Team roles and members
Pitches often require roles and personnel that are not part of your routine publishing effort. For example, you operate a general news site, and you want to publish a specialized series about electron microscopes, so you need to hire freelancers for some of the content generation. You can group the freelancers, and your staff reporters, into roles limited to Assignment Desk pitches.
Referring to the previous illustration—
- Adam is a staff reporter with a Reporter role in Brightspot.
- Olivia and Harrison are freelancers hired to work on the series about electron microscopes.
- Adam, Olivia, and Harrison are assigned to the team roles Science writer, Photographer, and Scientist for the purposes of this pitch.
