Full Disclosure

  
I am an “affiliate” for AWAI, meaning that yes, I will receive a commission when someone orders the course through this link. I want to be upfront about it. And yes, it’s touchy. If I’m being rewarded financially for recommending a program, is that endorsement, by definition, tainted? Not necessarily. I’ve known for years that AWAI’s courses (especially their copywriting and business-to-business writing courses) were excellent, and based on countless positive testimonials from readers, I have been informally steering people to them for years – long before I ever even knew I might profit from those referrals. Many of you who’ve taken their courses, or are taking them now, have contacted me, emphasizing the quality of the programs, how valuable the training was, how they went out of their way at every opportunity to help, etc. So, I’ll sleep okay at night.

Graphic Design Success

I (and countless other commercial writers) are living proof that you don’t have to become an expert in graphic design to do well as a commercial writer. It’s certainly not a skill that clients expect you to have. But, that said, if you do possess some skills in this arena, you WILL make yourself more marketable. One of my readers, Mike Klassen, recounted his experiences with AWAI’s Graphic Design Success course in the June 2005 issue of THE WELL-FED E-PUB (click here for article), sharing his newly crafted design portfolio. As he said, he probably won’t be putting any established graphic designers out of business anytime soon, but frankly, I was impressed.
