Kicktastic (aka: the dudes at FortySeven Media & Bright Newt) present:

How to make your web shop Freakishly Profitable

We know how hard it is to run a web agency and stay alive. Trust us, we've spent a combined 25 years trying to figure it out. Let us help you:

  • Learn how to have plenty of work and great clients who respect you and pay on time.
  • Always be ahead on payroll, bills, and taxes - plus have money in the bank.
  • Have the time to hone your skills or get serious about side projects.

Includes 2.5 hour workshop, printable workbook & more!

Here's years of running a business consolidated into a few hours of action packed audio & video. My advice? Buy it.

Allan Branch,

Freakishly Profitable has already scared up results at these conferences:

Be a lean, green, money making machine

Imagine working less that 40 hours a week, having more than 2 months of savings in the bank and saying yes only to the projects you really like. If that sounds pretty farfetched to you, then you’d benefit from going through all the Freakishly Profitable training. We’d like to show you what’s possible and help you find that sweet spot.

Stop the bleeding

Most small businesses fail because they never find a sustainable profit margin. They spend more than they make and bleed out over time. Freakishly Profitable will teach you how to take inventory of your time and resources and keep costs down.

Planning & Sales

It’s safe to say that most web designers or developers do NOT want to be salespeople. But that doesn’t mean we can’t learn about sales, begin practicing the best stuff, and toss out all the icky, infomercial-style garbage. Let’s dive into how to you can grow your business and get new clients without greasing back your hair and wearing a polyester suit.


Don’t get “scared” off by the word hiring. We’re talking about delegating small, low-leverage tasks so that you can focus on what you do best. Perhaps it’s time for you to open your mind, let go of some control, and enjoy the benefits of having extra help.

Diversify Your Income

Imagine a one-legged monster. He’d be pretty easy to push over, right? The same is true of your business. We’ll give you lots of ideas for turning your business into an octopus. (Yeah, yeah, we’re mixing metaphors. Deal with it.)


Putting an efficient billing process into place was the single most profitable thing we’ve ever done. We’ll cover pricing, billing frequency, payment processing, and more. By the end of Freakishly Profitable, you’ll know exactly how to remove the scary parts from the money roller coaster.

Hi, we’re Jon, Austin & Nate

We want you to make craploads of money

Jon Longnecker Austin Church Nate Croft

This workshop is the result of thousands of hours managing our own businesses, helping coaching other freelancers and creative shops through Kicktastic and doing workshops at awesome conferences.

Nate Croft & Jonathan Longnecker of FortySeven Media have been building kick-awesome sites for rad clients since 2005. They've spoken at numerous conferences, started the Kick Awesome Show and have been teaching other web shops how to stay profitable since 2012. In case you hadn't noticed they like to have fun, too.

Austin started Bright Newt back in 2009 as a creative services shop that offered copywriting, marketing strategy, branding, and SEO. But since the launch of Mustache Bash in April 2012, he has focused more on making apps for iOS and Android and app-related products. Bright Newt apps have several things in common: quirky themes, smooth functionality, and heaps of sarcasm. Austin’s hair really isn’t all that cool, but his personality makes up for it.
