One of the largest independent small business sites, YFS Magazine is the definitive digital magazine for startups, small business and entrepreneurship culture.

Our small business articles cover a wide range of topics that are intended for seed, early stage startup and growth companies.

All content submissions should speak directly to entrepreneurs, small business owners, founders and CEO's. We also reach global business leaders, venture capitalists, innovators and startup enthusiasts.

While the topics may vary, all YFS Magazine articles share certain characteristics. They are written for small business owners by industry experts whose authority comes from careful analysis, study, and experience.

Prior to submission, please familiarize yourself with our publication to ensure that your original guest contribution is accepted.

All guest posts should be submitted as final copy, 500 to 1000 words, with the assumption that no editing will be necessary. A conversational, informal style is ideal. Use hyperlinks when relevant and source all quotes, data and references within a post. 

We ask all authors to disclose any business or financial relationships they have with companies cited in the proposed guest post.

A Note On Hyperlinks

All links MUST be relevant to the subject matter discussed in the post and within context of the clickable text. Links that do not meet this guideline or are deemed promotional and excessive in nature will be deleted.

Are your hyperlinks working? If not, make sure you have submitted content in HTML format. HTML is a text-based format commonly used for writing web pages and other electronic documents. Its ability to be edited and its status as an open standard make it ideal for document exchange.

Need to ensure hyperlinks are working? Visit Draft ( Create a new account. Select 'New Document'. Copy and paste your document, insert URLs using the top right hand corner menu. When complete, go to the top left-hand menu and select 'View' -> 'Export' -> 'HTML' and and export the document to HTML.
