AWAI—Amazing writing opportunities

Writers serious about making money: Pay Attention.  Businesses need writers… and they pay… sometimes VERY WELL!

I talked last blog about AWAI and its introductory course Six Figure Copywriting in my blog AWAI: the Good, the Bad, the Ugly.

Today I want to share with you the vast resources AWAI has.  I wish I’d known this when I first started learning from them.   I don’t KNOW that they keep it a secret… But I also didn't know where to look.

Delve into the AWAI catalogue.  I signed up as an affiliate with AWAI because I thought their courses would benefit my readers.  But I was blown away at all the choices I had.

 WHAT TO CHOOSE?

If you’re like me, you think:  I could do that!  Or I’d like to try that!  And if you’re not careful, you can end up over your head in classes, courses or commitments.

So I’d encourage you to go to the AWAI catalogue page and scroll down through all the choices.  I had a friend who took The Pro Resume Writer Program.  She wanted to be able to help people in this down economy.  The teaching must be excellent, because Johanna has gotten rave reviews from her clients.

There are many classes for those who want to write web copy. Try Copywriting 2.0: Your Complete Guide to Writing Web Copy that Converts

Or if you want to master Search Engine Optimization (SEO) take a look at the SEO Copywriting Certificate Program.  If you love Facebook and other social media—earn money with Become  a Social Media Expert.

They have courses for those wanting to specialize in niches such as the financial, health, catalogue or Christian markets.  You can become a publicist or a speech writer or a researcher.

Are you starting to get a feel for all the opportunities for writers to earn good money out there?

 SERIOUS ABOUT MONEY?

I have been inclined toward the info-marketing course and the business to business (B2B) courses because of the sheer volume of writing needed in those areas.  There are so many clients and businesses needing good copy.

Consider Secrets of Writing High Performance B2B Copy or Writing Case Studies: How to Make a Great Living by Helping Clients Tell Their Stories.

After you take the copywriting course, you’ll look at websites and products and say. Pfff.  I could do better than that.   Or Gee, this writing really needs some improvement.

Now, if you’re inclined to exercise a bit of tact, you really can approach those businesses with an offer to give their writing the power that will attract more paying customers.  Tact is essential.

The person you speak to … may have been the one writing the copy.

So spend some time looking at the vast array of writing opportunities.  If you have skill with writing, you might be able to save a little and start writing for these markets on your own.

Even with the AWAI assistance the money will not just fall into your lap.  People won’t come begging for your services.  You will still need to promote yourself.

But.  If you learn through an AWAI course, you will gain the confidence and skill necessary to go out into the market place and say, “Hey!  I can write!  And I’m good!!” And, of course, modest and tactful, too.

So check out the AWAI catalogue.  Choose one or two of the areas you’d like to explore… and delve in deeper.   They actually have a program that allows you access to ALL the courses.

But since you can’t read them all at once… I suggest you start with one at a time.
