But first, I wanted to introduce myself to you just in case you’re not familiar with who I am — or the role I play here on the Wealthy Web Writer website.
I’m a Marketing Coordinator for American Writers and Artists Inc. who just celebrated my 4-year anniversary with AWAI earlier this month – time sure does fly when you’re having fun!
I can honestly say I love my job – not just because of the people I work with, or the opportunity to learn and grow with a company I believe in, but mainly because of the rewarding feeling I get when I know I’m helping someone get closer to achieving their dreams and goals.
Two years ago I attended AWAI’s first ever Web Copywriting Intensive, and got to meet, face-to-face, with web writers like you… people who wanted to make their web-writing dreams a reality, and chose to attend the event to get the tools, techniques and motivation they needed to get started.
It was at that very event that I was bit by the web-writing bug!
I knew my focus from there on out was going to be web related – and luckily Rebecca had that vision for me too! 🙂
That event fueled the birth of Wealthy Web Writer, a community of aspiring and professional web writers all working towards a similar goal: to make money writing online.
Today my role in the website is to research and plan new event topics for the Wealthy Web Writer calendar, by uncovering the experts you want to hear from and the tools and resources you want to know more about.
With that said, I’d love to hear from you! I want to know what topic YOU want to learn more about and who YOU want to hear from. I invite you to post your ideas and requests in the comments below.
And don’t worry about overwhelming me with ideas. Knowing that we can do anything we want excites me – and I hope it excites you too!
But enough about me – check out all the HOT events already scheduled in July ….
Thursday July 1st: Rebecca Matter kicked off the July schedule with a webinar where she gave away her 5-Step Process for Creating Articles that Get Published.
Not only will you leave this event knowing how to write an article, you’re going to be able to put your new skills to the test! Wealthy Web Writer has a list of article content that needs to be written and you’ll have first dibs!
Tuesday July 6th: Creating a Landing Page with Nick Usborne. Nick has gone through his own portfolio and selected a landing page he has already written which delivered exceptional results for one of his clients.
Nick provided a brief – similar to what he received from the actual client. You can write your own version of the landing page and then Nick will show you his version and he’ll go through it element by element, explaining exactly how he wrote it and why it worked so well.
Thursday July 15th: Join Rebecca Matter as she sits down and interviews James Chartrand, owner of Men with Pens, as well as a copywriter, problogger, and online entrepreneur from Quebec, Canada to discuss A New Take on Breaking Into Copywriting.
You’ll find out how James got started as a copywriter and advice to online copywriters starting out in the industry today.
Tuesday July 20th: Wealthy Web Writer Success Interview with Henry Bingaman.
Mailman, Valet, Waiter, and Flight Attendant… All jobs that our guest Henry Bingaman held before he jumped – very suddenly – into the wild world of freelance copywriting.
Only one month after attending the 2009 Web Intensive with just 2 clients under his belt, he quit his full time job and began his life as a freelance copywriter.
In this call, he’ll talk about the ups and downs of his first year and a half of copywriting… and a few mistakes he made that you’ll want to avoid.
Wednesday July 28th: Performing Effective Keyword Research with SBI!
Find out the importance of keyword research throughout the entire business cycle… from niche finding to page-building to identifying adsense potential to investigating and learning from your competition to noting market trends, etc.
I hope you enjoy the events scheduled for July!
