As far as I can see and tell from my own experience, a basic understanding of copywriting is a core requirement for success online. I've done some reading around the web and I've polished off a couple of books on the subject, but more recently I've been looking into copywriting courses. More specifically, I'm interested in sales copy courses.
Now for the questions..
I was wondering how the esteemed members of this sub-forum viewed the following website (and the people/company behind it):
American Writers and Artists Incorporated (AWAI)
Are their courses, in your mind, worth looking at?
How did YOU get into the business? A training course? Accidentally? Did you attend a "legitimate" school program?
I'd rather take a "real" sales copywriting course, if the less expensive do-it-from-home type options are not as respected as they (of course) claim to be.
Thanks in advance for your input and honesty.
