The AWAI Marketing Team … Barefoot Writer … Wealthy Web Writer … B2B Writing Success … Great Escape Publishing — They All Want to Hire You!
Let’s Meet Up at Job Fair and Talk about Kicking Your Career Off with a Bang with Your First Copywriting Job
Every year at Job Fair during AWAI’s annual FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp, dozens of marketers and publishers gather to meet with copywriters like you. You’ve been trained by AWAI — you know your stuff. And these potential clients value that training, even more than experience or a portfolio of samples.
Many attendees land their first client at Job Fair — six-figure careers have been born at this event. But we don’t let the exhibitors get all the talent.
Web pages, blog posts, newsletters, articles, sales letters, landing pages, lift notes, full marketing campaigns … since our founding in 1997, we’ve worked with our members to procure the copy that keeps AWAI running. We know you’ve got the chops, and we want to hire you for a real copywriting job. One project could lead to another … and then another … even a retainer agreement or royalties for a major marketing campaign.
Whether you’re a web writer, B2B writer, travel writer … or specialize in emails, content, or anything else, there could be a spot for you writing for AWAI. Reps from all of our publications and membership sites — and the AWAI marketing team, of course, will be at Job Fair …
- Wealthy Web Writer — It’s the one-stop shop for improving your online copywriting skills and building your writing business from the ground up. Managing Editor Heather Robson says she’s on the lookout for copy:
“Bootcamp is one of the most exciting times of the year for me. I always get to meet new writers, and typically a few of them become regular contributors to Wealthy Web Writer. My biggest need is for good editorial content that freelance writers working on online projects can use.
“The best way to land a project with Wealthy Web Writer is to spend some time looking at our free content library. Then come up with an idea or two that is fresh and that you think will be a good fit. From there, I try to make it easy and fun!”
- Barefoot Writer — Our monthly magazine is packed with plenty of practical writing and business-building tips, inspirational stories, profiles, and more. Like Heather, Executive Editor Mindy McHorse is always looking for new articles.
- B2B Writing Success — If your niche is B2B, this is just right for you. Charlotte Hicks Crockett, Managing Editor of B2B Writing Success, has a lot of pages to fill.
“After a fantastic Job Fair in 2015 where I hired many new writers, I’m super-excited about this year’s Job Fair. B2B Writing Success publishes weekly, so we’re always in need of good articles that will help our members succeed as B2B copywriters,” says Charlotte.
“Be sure to have business cards or a sheet with your contact information. It’s helpful to know what your areas of expertise are so when a need arises, I’ll know to contact you for an article.
“Most of all — come to make a connection! Meeting marketers and copywriters face-to-face is one of the best parts of Bootcamp and Job Fair.”
- Great Escape Publishing is AWAI’s sister company focused on travel writing and photography. If you have a passion for these niches, check them out.
"New, new, new. We're looking for new ideas, fresh perspectives, and FUN! Travel writing and photography are fun, so should be our marketing copy,” says Lori Allen, the Director of Great Escape Publishing.
Not to mention there is an ongoing need for copy for AWAI marketing campaigns and product launches. Sandy Franks, AWAI’s Copy Chief, is looking for copywriters, too.
“I tend to think of Bootcamp as the biggest marketing and copywriting networking event in the world. It's a chance to meet so many talented, hard-working writers and catch up with business colleagues. And it’s also a great way for AWAI to find writers,” says Sandy.
“If you are interested in the chance to work with AWAI, helping us with copywriting projects, make sure you’ve completed The Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting or have been AWAI Verified ®. This lets us know you understand the fundamentals. Stop by and say hi during Job Fair.”
