  • A link to your freebie/opt in, if desired (do not submit links to your friend’s freebie in addition to your own, or links to your Facebook group. They will be deleted, and you will not be asked to submit any articles in the future — we have contributors who grow their lists and views by quite a bit after their articles went viral on Pinterest).
