So much information, jam packed I just loved it! I couldn't sleep last night I was so inspired! I had to limit myself to a few sessions a day so I didn't over do it but it was hard choosing as there was so much gold! Thank you so much Krista!

- Chrystal Fleming, Indigo Ink

The Simply Profitable Designer Summit is about just that.


20 experts over 3 days will teach you strategies you can use to both improve and simplify your design business, no matter which stage you’re at. All from the comfort of your home.

Maybe you're...


Undercharging, overdelivering and overworking and you're ready to make a change.


Spending way more time on the business side of your business and not enough time on design.


Ready to upgrade your marketing strategy and make booking new clients easier.

Whatever it is for you, it’s time to simplify.

Sponsored by the Web Designer Academy

It was so inspiring to learn from and interact with designers from all over the world who have either gone through or are going through the same growing pains I am. I am so pumped-up and inspired with everything I learned and I can't wait to put it all into practice!

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!

- Ana Zagalo, Zagalo Creative Studio

Shannon Mattern


Hey! I’m Shannon Mattern, founder of the Web Designer Academy where we help designers work less and make more money and host of the Profitable Web Designer Podcast. I have 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.

And when you believe in you and your value, everything else - marketing, selling and delighting your clients becomes... simple. Profitable. And sustainable.

The Simply Profitable Designer Summit will help you to fix the pieces of your business that aren’t working well so you can become more profitable and stress-free, while making more time for what you love - design.

The Details


The Simply Profitable Designer Summit will run from March 18-22, 2024 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.

Just for web designers

There are a lot of business-growth summits, training, and workshops out there. So what makes this one different?

First, this is the original summit focused specifically on helping designers with their business. We've been going for 7 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, we're not here to add to your plate. Our goal isn't to throw new strategies and tasks at you, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and like there's no way you can do enough. Instead, we're here to take what you're already doing and optimize it in a way that makes your business more profitable and stress-free while creating more time for the part you love - design!

Running a design business is not all cute icons and gorgeous moodboards.

You love what you do, but know you know there's got to be a way to make it all easier and more profitable. The design part of your business is great...but the rest you'd rather do without.

What you really want is to...

Pull in new clients on auto-pilot

Pull in new clients on
auto-pilot...without wondering where the next one is coming from.

Automate your onboarding process

Stand out and make the $$ you deserve...instead of feeling like you're getting lost in the crowd.

get your clients results

Give your clients an experience they HAVE to share with friends...hello referrals and repeat customers!

solid design process

Create a solid and simple design process...to help you save time and keep your projects organized.

schedule on track

Create a business and schedule that serves YOU...and not just your clients.

You can have all of these things without constantly adding more to your plate.

The best part: It can be simple.

It’s time to…

Stop following conventional wisdom... conventional wisdom creates conventional results.

Finally do something about the parts of your design business that cause stress and take too much time.

Simplify what you’re already doing to allow you to work more efficiently, while being more profitable.

Create freedom, flexibility, financial independence and FULFILLMENT.
