Jim Turner:
Social Media & Social Networking Expert, Copywriter, and Marketing Strategist

“Amazing things have happened since completing the AWAI Copywriting program in early 2005. I still remember nervously hitting the send button for my first spec assignment that launched an entirely new career for me as a copywriter. The skills I’ve learned from selling through writing have allowed me to further advance my opportunities in the new media marketing arena – using Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn – to find and build relationships with new clients all over the world. It’s an exciting and profitable time to be an independent business owner!”
