The post must be at least 900 words, with a maximum of two backlinks (don’t link to landing pages or things you want to sell). A bio must also be included, and no product promotion is allowed within the post.”

The goal of the site is to guide readers to financial independence by offering different ideas and strategies for what’s considered normal.

Other perks: “Once the post is published, I will constantly share it with the community of more than 30,000 great people,” explains Simon.
What kind of posts they like: Some of the most popular or helpful articles are list posts on business ideas, mistakes to avoid and pain points faced by readers in this niche. In addition, Simon enjoys interviews with other successful entrepreneurs.

What you can do to help the editor say YES: “Don’t write long pitches,” warns Simon. “Be straight to the point and show me that you can bring value to The Becomer community,” he says.
Lead time: It will take about two to three weeks before your post will be published.
