Writers have been calling Angela Booth's popular online Web writing class, Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON), the "best investment I've ever made" for over two years.
Copywriter and writing teacher Angela Booth developed her popular Web writing class two years ago, to help writers to make the transition from print media to the Web.
The class is comprehensive, and trains writers in developing many different kinds of Web content. It also trains them in creating and selling information products.
When she launched the training, Angela's primary aim was to get her students ready to take advantage of the unlimited opportunities online, because the Web has a huge appetite for words.
She says: "Two years on from the launch of Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON), I'm proud that graduates have gone on to create successful careers and businesses."
When she first developed the program, she knew that there was a need for it, and hoped that writers would enjoy the training and would make full use of it.
The fact that many writers quit their day jobs after beginning SYWON is a sign that they are. One SYWON student, Rebecca Smith, said: "I've had enough repeat work coming through to be able to quit my much-hated day job to write full time."
Another student said: "I've never been so happy, and I've never made so much money!"
Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) Web writing training is constructed in modules. Most of the online writing class's students complete the full year of training, and some writers continue with the training, taking the Graduate Coaching option.
Angela will be releasing a series of expansion programs for SYWON in 2011, building on the skills students now have. The aim of these programs is to ensure that students keep up with the constantly changing nature of the Web.

Angela Booth is a top copywriter, and writing teacher. She offers many guides, courses and classes to help writers to enhance their skills. She also provides inspiration and motivation for writers on her writing blogs. Angela has been writing successfully since the late 1970s, and was online in the 1980s, long before the birth of the Web. Her business books have been widely published.
Here's one writer's story.
My year as a SYWON student opened my eyes to writing venues I hadn't considered -- and some I didn't even know existed. The weekly lessons alone were more than worth the subscription fee, and the coaching and additional bonus material were an incomparable value.
I am a single mom who was barely scraping by when I learned about SYWON. The cost of the program, as modest as it is, represented a huge investment of my resources at the time. From the very first lesson, though, I was able to apply the information Angela shared, and easily made enough money to more than cover the cost. As the lessons progressed, my creativity sparked and I learned how to take my writing projects from inspiration to fruition. SYWON was the mental equivalent of opening a dam -- the ideas now flow with ease, and I start each day with enthusiasm for my work.
More than anything, this year with Angela's knowledge and influence moved me into an entirely different mindset. I entered SYWON already a strong writer, but one who didn't realize her worth. A year later, I am a confident, prolific writer and a confident entrepreneur. The course changed the way I see myself, and thus, the way present myself to the business world. As a result, the opportunities are now limitless.
For many years, when my young daughter needed something that wasn't in the budget, it just had to wait. Now, I don't stress about unanticipated expenses. "No problem, kiddo, I'll just write a few extra articles," I tell her. She laughs and responds, "That's what you always say, Mom!" And thanks to Angela, I always will.
Please be certain that Angela sees these comments, sent with my heartfelt thanks.
I want to thank you as well, Julia, for the support and encouragement you've provided this past year. You and Angela are a formidable team, and the boost you're giving to Angela's writing students is undoubtedly changing lives around the world.
As my work takes me in new directions, I will be exploring Angela's other products, certain that they will motivate and educate me as thoroughly as SYWON has done. I recommend SYWON enthusiastically to other writers. Whether you are new to the writing business or a seasoned veteran, you will gain value beyond measure from this course.
I've just started a big revision of the training program. I'll be checking links in all the lessons, adding information, and adding materials. (If you're a member, you'll receive the new materials automatically of course.)
Questions? Please ask.
If you're sick of the pressure and insecurity of your day job, it might be time to look at the many excellent opportunities you have for working from home. If you have writing skills it's a no-brainer. You can join the many thousands of writers who have a 30 second daily commute: from the bedroom to their home office.
Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) is a way of building your skills, so that you're in high demand, whether you choose to work from home or not. However, the option of building your own career from the comfort of your home office is priceless, no matter what your circumstances.
The benefits of running your own home business include:
* You're unaffected by fluctuations in the economy. No matter what's happening, businesses will always need to communicate;
* No commute, ever. You work where you are, whether that's in your home office, or any country in the world you please. As long as you have an Internet connection, you're golden;
*No ceiling on your income. You've heard of the bloggers who've sold a single blog for millions of dollars. That's not a myth. If it can happen to others, it could well happen to you. Even if it never happens, blogging and other forms of web writing mean that you're building long-term security for yourself and your family;
* No office politics. You choose with whom you wish to work. You can always say: "Thank you, but no..." :-); and
* The freedom to take a few hours or a day or two off. When you're your own boss, you choose when you work, and when you don't.
If you've always wanted to earn money from home, the time could well be now. :-)
Please don't. The training is meant to benefit you for a lifetime, not just one year.
As I wrote on the Questions page:
There’s no reason to hurry. Complete the training at your own pace.
You don't even need to complete all 52 weeks. You can make a full time income from any one module of the training - writing articles, writing ebooks, offering writing services...
You can make a GREAT full time income just writing articles for example within a month or two - there's immense hunger online for good content from RELIABLE writers. However, if you do complete the 52 weeks, you'll have a grounding in the myriad of ways you can make money writing on the Web.
So there's no rush. No one's pushing you, least of all me. I want you to build your web writing career at your own pace. You'll find that the training is like a set of building blocks -- you can put the blocks together in many different ways, to suit your current lifestyle.
Julia and I are always ready to help; contact us at any time.
Here's a method of working:
* Make each lesson WORK for you, before you go on to the next. Complete the exercises -- don't worry if you "fall behind";
* When a new lesson arrives, read the new lesson. You'll often find that material in later lessons will help you with what you're currently writing;
* Reread lessons -- you never "know" everything, even when you're practicing it. Something you thought you understood well will take on fresh resonance with new things you're learning, and you'll be able to apply your current knowledge a new, creative way.
Sell Your Writing Online NOW (SYWON) is complete web writing training. I know you'll get more value from the course over the months and years of your writing career. The lessons will stand you in good stead. Please make the most of them, that's my one big wish for you. :-)
