I'm just starting out and this summit was so much more than I could have hoped for. The best part was that I could watch it from my home in Portugal, at the hours I wanted and with speakers that could answer to my many questions and much more. It was amazing and I can't wait to implement what I've learned!

Meet your host

Shannon Mattern

Shannon Mattern is the founder of the Web Designer Academy and host of the Profitable Web Designer Podcast. Sha has a passion for helping designers like you believe deeply in the value of what you create for your clients, love every second you spend working in and on your business, and create an abundance of time and money so that you can live the life you've always wanted.

Shannon believes that there's no one right way to run your design business... just the way that's right for you! The Simply Profitable Designer Summit will introduce you to creative ways to optimize your design business and fix the pieces of your business that aren’t working well so you can have the profitable, fulfilling design business you deserve!

The Details


The Simply Profitable Designer Summit will run from March 17-21, 2025 with a mix of live sessions and pre-recorded presentations.


I don't know about you, but I prefer to do my hair and leave my house as little as possible. With that being said, you can tune into the summit from the comfort of your couch and yoga pants.


Presentations will be available to watch during summit week for 48 hours after they go live. Presenters will provide you with valuable strategy and action steps so you can map out your next steps. 


You'll have the chance to win prizes throughout the event. In fact, we're playing Bingo right now in the Facebook group. Come on in and join the fun!

Get lifetime access

After registering, you can upgrade to get ongoing presentation access, a workbook, plus the option to get $5k in premium speaker bonuses, and more!

Party It up

You’ll have access to the Facebook group where we’ll be partying it up before the summit starts and working together to simplify once it kicks off.

Connect with other designers

There are a lot of business-growth summits, training, and workshops for designers out there. So why make time for this one?

First, this is the original summit focused specifically on helping designers with their business. We've been going for 8 years now and it just keeps getting better! This isn't general advice for any creative business out there. Every presentation is specialized for the type of business you run as a designer, making it super practical and easy to implement right away.

More importantly, there's no one right way to run a design business.. there's the way that's right for you. Our goal is to introduce you to lots of creative ways to run your business and make things simpler so that you can choose the ones that align with your lifestyle, strengths, vision and goals.
