44 AWAI Members Registered to Become Web Copy Specialists in Just 3 Days

AWAI announced this week that they will be holding the next Web Copywriting Intensive in Austin, Texas, February 15th-18th, 2009. This Intensive is the only place you’ll find everything you need to know about how to write web copy that converts visitors into cash in one place. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that takes you from zero to Web Copy Specialist in only three days … with the guided help from four of the industry’s top experts.

Online marketing holds an enormous money-making opportunity for you as a copywriter – and by the end of this 3-day event, you’ll know instantly what needs to be done to make any online marketing campaign a huge success.

Plus, you’ll have everything you need to begin marketing your new-found (and very much in demand) skills immediately … to any client with an online presence.

According to AWAI’s VP and Director of Web Marketing, Rebecca Matter:

“Successful web marketing is about more than writing a great sales letter. It’s about writing landing pages that keep people on your client’s site and make them want to buy …

“It’s about mastering effective email communication … writing killer pay-per-click ads that drive people to your (or your client’s) website … and injecting the proper words and phrases into your copy that guarantees the highest possible search engine rankings …

“These are all the things you’re going to master over three intensive days in February, so come that Monday morning you’ll be able to walk up to any client and say with confidence, ‘Yes, I know what we need to do to transform your online marketing.’”

And there’ll be no shortage of eager clients. There are thousands of companies and marketers looking for this expertise. Literally thousands of companies are expanding their online marketing efforts each and every day.

Featured presenters will include:

Nick Usborne, who has been a copywriter for 30 years now, 11 of which he’s dedicated solely to online copywriting. He’s worked with, and is a web-copy consultant to, companies like Microsoft, Yahoo, Disney, American Online and The New York Times. As a result of soaking up Nick’s expansive knowledge first-hand, you will know more about online copywriting than 99.9% of your competitors. With this knowledge alone, you could earn a six-figure income for life, just as Nick has done for the better part of a decade.

Andrew Palmer, who has pioneered many of the pay-per-click marketing strategies that have become best practices in the publishing industry. Understanding how to write successful pay-per-click ads will become crystal clear after you train with Andrew.

Heather Lloyd-Martin, who is the pioneer of SEO copywriting and the Chair of the DMA’s Search Engine Marketing Council. She is also the author of Successful Search Engine Copywriting, widely considered the benchmark work on the subject. Heather will show you how to re-write a business’s web page to be search-engine friendly. It’s a quick job where you can earn $250-$1,000. (All you have to do is change a few words and phrases on something that’s already written for you!)

Matt Furey, who is a world champion martial artist and author and publisher of several international best-selling books, which he markets online through simple little emails. He’s known as the “Zen Master of the Internet,” and his daily emails bring in well over $10 million in sales, with no employees. Matt’s going to teach you the exact marketing secrets and strategies he uses to write the emails that earn him over $10,000 a day.

“This is also an opportunity to get freelance work on the spot from AWAI. I have over 42 assignments that need to be completed soon – and we keep adding to them everyday. A HUGE reason I’m putting on this Intensive is so I can grow my tight little group of web-copywriting experts I can call on anytime. And I fully expect to pull them from this event in February,” said Rebecca Matter.

AWAI expects the demand for this event will be substantial, based on the number of people who have asked them to put an event like this together, and how quickly the August workshop sold out.

Spots are limited – Register today!
