Want to contribute to YFS Magazine? Read this first—and then submit your story, post, or pitch.
1. Get to know YFS Magazine.
Our audience is comprised of young, affluent and influential startups, small business owners, startup enthusiasts, and entrepreneurship aficionados. If your news, pitch, or post isn’t related to startups, small business or entrepreneurial culture, we aren’t interested. The best way to know if your story fits the bill is to read YFS Magazine and familiarize yourself with our editorial content.
2. Submit original content.
Are you an entrepreneur, small business owner, VC/Angel, author or business leader? Do you have a great story, strong opinions, tips, advice or insight about entrepreneurship? Become an expert and share your genius with our global readership.
3. Write your own story.
Would you like to interview a big name in the industry? Did you see something in the news that our readers would love? Maybe CNN covered a developing business trend, a blogger sparked a huge debate or you want to discuss entrepreneurship faux pas? Share your opinion, and write the story as it would appear on YFS Magazine and make sure to include links and sources.
4. Share a company blog post.
Are you a business blogger? Would you like your company blog posts to reach a larger, global audience and gain SEO perks in the process? If so, share it with us and explain why our readers will love it.
5. Get featured.
Should your company or client be featured in YFS Magazine? All features are vetted via an online interview. The best pitches are informative, detailed and include a press ready high resolution image. Pitches submitted without a high resolution image of the Founder, suitable for web publishing, will not be reviewed. Need ideas? Checkout past features and submit your pitch.
6. We don’t want your press releases – at least not here.
YFS Magazine accepts posts, stories, and story ideas related to newsworthy happenings within the international small business community. But we’d love to help you sing your own praises. Share your press release here and we’ll publish it for free. Releases beneficial to small business owners (i.e. events, contests, incubators, accelerators) will run as Breaking News.
7. Include images and videos if possible.
We love images and videos. Every article on YFS Magazine contains one or the other, so don’t be afraid to include them. You can attach an image or video file in the field marked “Attach a file.” If the video has an embed code, paste the code in the content.
8. Pitch your book.
If you’d like your book to be reviewed by our influential editors for inclusion in our book lists or special book features please let us know about it and if interested we’ll request a press copy. Start here.
9. Get your business service or product reviewed.
Does your company sell a product or service aimed at small business decision makers and purchasers? Contact our advertising department to request a rate card.
