🎟 Tickets on sale now for the 2023 Web Design Business Planning Virtual Retreat on December 8th!

Hey there, I'm Shannon Mattern!

I’m the host of the Profitable Web Designer Podcast, and founder of the Web Designer Academy where we teach web designers how to create profitable, sustainable freelance web design businesses.

I created the Web Designer Academy in 2016 to create a space to provide the mentorship and support I wish I would have had available to me when I was freelancing!

We teach simple yet powerful marketing tactics combined with innovative and authentic sales strategies that no one else is teaching.

I’m committed to helping you create freedom, flexibility, financial independence and impact as a freelance web designer!

I’d love to work with you if you value…

what keeps you motivated in business?

seeing the transformations our students go through and the results they create... how different they are now vs. when they joined.
