Final Thoughts

Learning, sharing your knowledge, and getting paid for it, is a good way to earn extra income. However, getting into these publications is not exactly a walk in the park. You need the expertise required for your application to be considered by these companies. And if you have no technical background, you might have to work twice as hard.

    Thanks for posting,I did apply but I haven’t received any response from the agencies. Please any suggestion

      Sorry about that.

      Sometimes it takes weeks for these companies to get back, due to the large pool of talents they have to deal with.

      One thing is to make sure that the samples you’re submitting align with the company’s requirements. You don’t want to submit react articles to a company that focuses on MLOps or blockchain blogs.
      Apply to as many as you can, and be patient.

      Hopefully, this helps!
