"Pay: Absolutely. If your article is accepted and published, you’ll
be paid. Please include a projected word count in your pitch and we’ll
let you know the rate. Business Professionals who are focused on brand
building and audience expansion can opt to receive other benefits, such
as a listing on our Expert Contributor Page with bio and links, as well
as deeply discounted advertising."
Of course, if you don't like the pay, you can always refuse the job, but the time spent putting together a pitch is lost. Certainly not a "flawless" way to work.
