There’s no doubt about it, there has never been a better time to get into writing as a means of making money from the comfort of your own home – enter the AWAI Copywriting Course.
Okay, you know the story by now – no commute, no unreasonable boss, choose your own hours and who you work with etc. All true of course, and all very doable provided you put in the effort and build your business up (did I mention it was a real business) one step at a time.
The “business” part of the equation is what a lot of people struggle with and that’s why I keep saying you need to get your head right if you want to succeed as a Freelance writer. Here’s a video that might help.
A Decent Copywriting Course
Anyway, the main point of today’s post is to give you guys a heads up on the quickest way to get your writing business off to a good start, and it’s not rocket science at all – GET YOURSELF A DECENT COURSE. That’s it (told you it wasn’t complicated).
So, naturally, your next question will be “what constitutes a decent course”, and that’s a fair question. Cutting to the chase here, I’ve looked at dozens of courses over the years and each has its pros and cons. I’m not saying for a moment that a course that doesn’t jive with one person might be just what someone else is looking for.
We’re all individuals (be a boring world if we weren’t) so it’s highly probable that “one size doesn’t fit all”.
With that said, it doesn’t help you guys much if I don’t have an opinion on what I think is a good bet as a starting point so, after much thought on the subject, I’ve come down in favor of the American Writers and Artists Institute (AWAI) Accelerated Program for Six-figure Copywriting.
Why? Here are a few reasons:
- Trustworthy – spend your money wisely – the AWAI copywriting course has been around since 1997
- Reasonably priced – not $1,000’s like many of the courses out there
- Very logically laid out
- Learn persuasive writing (the basis of copywriting)
- Learn direct response sales copy
- Choose your path section – get a clear roadmap of where you want to go (B2B, web writing etc.)
- Has proof of success – many former students earning 6 figures and more
- Provides you with certification (AWAI Verified TM) at the end of the course – helps you get clients
- TEACHES you how to land clients (Guide to Getting Clients) – important
- AWAI $10k challenge – earn as you learn
- Comprehensive user guide
- 90 Day success plan
- Comprehensive glossary of writing terms (that’s handy!)
- AWAI Bootcamp and job fair – great if you live in the US
- AWAI themselves may even give you work
- Supportive community you can talk to that helps you along the way
- Work at your own pace, get earning as quickly as you want
- Overall, focused on getting you earning REAL money from REAL clients quickly
Those are a few of the main points that spring to mind
