BellaOnline editors hail from around the world and represent a variety of cultures, creeds, religions, and backgrounds. We thrive with that diversity, and we'd love to have you join us. Everything you create and learn while a member of our Academy belongs wholly to you. When you choose to leave us, you take with you a reviewed, polished body of content to jump-start any blog, website, ebook, or other project. Our trainers provide personalized feedback to polish each piece to its true potential, based on modern web best practices.
We teach you how to construct ideal article titles which catch the attention of search engines and readers. We guide your articles so they are absolutely perfect for web browsers and smart phones. We polish your social networking skills to create a stream of fans, likes, and plus-ones for your projects. We take you step-by-step through creating ebooks and provide free editorial services to ensure they shine.
Everything you learn at the BellaOnline Writing Academy will propel all of your writing projects - be they ebooks, websites, blogs, forums, or other areas - to enormous success. We are an entire college program for becoming a web entrepreneur, covering writing, search engine optimization, marketing, social networking, ebook creation, community management, newsletter optimization, and much more. And it's all FREE.
How Can BellaOnline Offer This Training for Free?
BellaOnline is primarily a charity organization. Our web ads pay our site bills, and the rest goes to charity. We exist to help those who want to better themselves, but who might be in tight financial conditions, have a way to lift themselves up by their bootstraps. Many of our writers are former battered women and single moms who are striving for a stable life. We exist to help these individuals find stability and joy in their lives.
Our basic training program runs from 1-2 months. The full launch cycle covers another 3-5 months. At that point you'll be thoroughly grounded in how to write for the web, how to use graphics, how to market content, how to earn money on the web, how to create ebooks, and much, much more! It's like receiving a full degree in web entrepeneurship, in a quarter of the time, from the comfort of your own home.
All of our community are volunteers. We believe in our common cause and help each other succeed.
I Want to Join - What Should I Expect?
BellaOnline has been training and assisting editors for over ten years. If you'd like to join our team, we have found that three key traits lead to success:

* A desire to receive feedback on your writing, in line with what current readers and search engines expect
* A desire to interact with fans via email, forums, and social networking
If you possess these three traits, we'd love to hear from you! Let us help you build your skills and become a web entrepreneur!
