American Writers & Artists Institute to Teach Freelancers and Writers How to Create Their Own Professional Websites and Promote Their Services In Four Days

Responding to numerous requests from its members, AWAI is once again offering the very successful ”Freelance Website in Four Days Express Webinar Series” where freelancers will learn to create and build their own professional websites, and then promote those websites to prospective clients, in just four days.

Delray Beach, FL – May 5, 2010 – American Writers & Artists Institute (AWAI),, today announced the repeat of a winning online program called “Freelance Website in Four Days Express Webinar Series”. In just four days, May 9-12, participants will create their own professional promotional websites.

“The last time I taught this event, I was thoroughly impressed with the websites AWAI members created in just four days – they were every bit as professional as many that I have seen created by expert web designers,” said Rebecca Matter, Co-Managing Partner of AWAI and Founder of Wealthy Web Writer (

This live workshop will help freelance writers create bold and impressive websites from scratch, as well as complete sites that they’ve left hanging around unfinished. And if attendees already have active sites, they will learn how to improve them. The workshop is a practical, hands-on experience, so that in just four days, most participants will have a professional website to attract potential clients. As an added benefit, afterwards, they will have the control to make any future changes they need without any third-party help.

“The time has come for all freelance writers to have their own website. Without this electronic business card, it’s difficult to promote themselves as a true professional,” says Katie Yeakle, Executive Director of AWAI. “And since many freelancer writers do not have the funds to hire professional web designers when they’re starting out, this program is the perfect solution.”

If freelancers think that they can get away without a website, they should think again. One AWAI member recently shared her experience when applying to ghost write a client’s book. While she didn’t land the client, here’s the feedback she received: “I had 30 responses and you were in my top 5; however I chose another writer. I appreciated your professional response and proposal. The fact that you responded with a website and writing samples made it easy for me to put you to the top of the list.” She may have lost the job, but received feedback that confirmed what we already know – you need a website.

The series will walk participants step-by-step through the process of creating a website and, by the end of the week, participants will:

• Know what to include in their website to encourage visitors to click onto their site and stay there;

• Understand and decide the technical aspects, such as the domain registry, hosting, and platform;

• Know how to write the content to present themselves as experts in their chosen field; and finally

• Launch their own professional freelance business website.

For freelancers who already have their websites up and running, this program will help them to ensure their website properly promotes their services to potential clients.

Matter, who announced that she would be holding the program again, reminded members who are still thinking about participating that the series will only be held once this year, so anyone who would like to learn these skills should register quickly to get a space. “Nothing will be left out and no question will go unanswered,” she stated.

As an added bonus, participants will each receive a free resource titled Content Essentials Guide, will have access to an exclusive forum where they can communicate with other members, will have a review and critique of their sites, and best of all, will be entered into a “Best New Freelance Website” competition with a first prize of $1,000.
