Many of our members simply don’t have the time or funds to make it happen on their own. This webinar series will change all of that.
Delray Beach, FL (Vocus) September 8, 2010
American Writers & Artists Inc. (AWAI) today announced a new online program called “Freelance Website in Four Days Express Webinar Series.” Rather than having to hire someone else to do the work, AWAI will teach participants step-by-step how to build their own professional website in just four days.
“In order to land new clients, freelancers need a website to promote themselves and their services. I think of a website as the 21st Century Business Card,” says Rebecca Matter, Co-Managing Partner of AWAI and Founder of its newest division, Wealthy Web Writer, which teaches freelancers to write online copy. “Every day, AWAI receives requests from freelancers who need help building their website, so we decided to put together this program to give them the flexibility, control, and cost savings that comes from learning to do it themselves,” she continued. “This will be a practical, hands-on experience, so that in just four days, each participant will have a professional website to attract potential clients, and moving forward can make any changes they want without having to pay someone else. In the words of Benjamin Franklin, ‘Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.’”
The webinar series is geared towards people who have zero technical experience, so it will start at the very beginning, and walk participants through the entire process of creating a website from start to finish. Freelancers who already have a website up and running will work on further enhancing it to ensure their website properly promotes their services to potential clients, and generates more traffic from the search engines.
After just four one-hour sessions participants will be able to:
- Choose the look and feel for their own website after learning what makes a good website.
- Write their website’s content to properly promote themselves as experts in their fields.
- Select a domain, setup their hosting, and confidentially make all other technical decisions needed.
- Build their website using WordPress, and successfully take the website live.
“Spaces are already filling up quickly, so it’s clear we identified a big need among freelancers. I think that’s because for many people, constructing their own website takes months, and quite a bit of money,” says Katie Yeakle, Executive Director of AWAI. “Many of our members simply don’t have the time or funds to make it happen on their own. This webinar series will change all of that.”
“I’m very excited about this,” said Marcia Studenski, a freelancer who has already registered for the series. Website building has always been very difficult for me! I am determined to finally get this done.” And Ann Jordan-Mills wishes the series had been around when she built her website: “It would have saved me tons of time,” she said, “but I’ll be there for this series, because I know that I’ll pick up additional information I can use to improve my own website and then apply to my work with clients.”
