AWAI’s Wealthy Web Writer Division is delighted to present the first-ever virtual event of its kind, the “2011 State of the Web: Web Writer Summit.” This free, day-long, online experience will show members how to take advantage of the massive growth in ecommerce predicted for 2011, giving them a head-start for the New Year.

  • Creating online videos clients;
  • SEO secrets to optimize their web copywriting to be found by search engines;
  • Writing emails that get readers to take action;

  • How best to price these projects for clients.

AWAI member and copywriter Suresh Nair who resides in Haarlem, Netherlands, appreciates the virtual nature of AWAI’s programs, “I can catch them live when I am available or, because of my time difference here, I can listen to the recordings later,” he told us. "I am really excited about this Summit; it will help me gain momentum for the New Year so that my business can’t help but grow in 2011.”

“The Web Writer Summit is sure to be a hit,” stated Rebecca Matter, “It brings all of these experts together in one place, and you can enjoy and learn from the comfort of your own home – or wherever you and your laptop happen to be. Best of all, it’s free!”
