As part of AWAI’s free virtual event for people looking to work at home, participants of the “Work-at-Home Career Summit” will learn how to become a social media expert, as well as seven other proven work-at-home opportunities.

Delray Beach, FL – February 16, 2011 – American Writers & Artists Institute (AWAI), www.awai.com, recently announced they will be holding a free virtual event on February 19, 2011 called the Work-at-Home Career Summit, which will bring together a vibrant group of speakers who all own their own businesses and successfully work from home.

The main goal of most AWAI members is to work at home, so AWAI is responding by providing the inside scoop on eight (8) reputable work-at-home careers. One of the newest opportunities that will be covered is how to become a social media expert.

According to eMarketer, 57% of businesses worldwide will be increasing their spending on social media in 2011, and the speaker who will be educating attendees how to grab their share of this growing budget is legendary online copywriting expert, Nick Usborne.

Nick Usborne’s copywriting career spans thirty years – both offline and on, and he has worked with dozens of major companies including AOL, Time Warner, Yahoo, Disney, and The New York Times. Since 1996, he has been working exclusively online, as a copywriter, speaker, trainer and consultant.

During the session, Nick Usborne will talk about why social media is a hot new work-at-home opportunity and what steps attendees must take in order to find success working as a social media expert. “Along with his passion for online copywriting, Nick understands the important role of social media in a company’s online marketing strategy,” said Rebecca Matter, AWAI’s Co-Managing Partner and Founder of Wealthy Web Writer. “His presentation is a must-see for anyone who is already involved with social media, and would like to learn how they can make a living from it.”

By the end of Nick’s presentation, participants will know how working from home as a social media expert can change their lives. They will learn:

  • Why social media is a fantastic work-at-home opportunity;
  • The 8 goals of social media;
  • How you can start a social media consulting business or add consulting to your existing services;
  • How you can offer social media writing services;
  • And other ways you can use your social media expertise to make money from home.

“I have been working at home for over thirty years myself, so I’m delighted to be part of this very special event. And I’m especially pleased to be able to talk about working from home as a social media expert,” said Nick. “There is such a huge opportunity here. And unlike so many other so-called “opportunities”, making money as a social media expert is something almost anyone can do. If you like social media, and are willing to invest in learning more about it, you’ll be in a position to sell your expertise to others.”
