About Shawn Gossman
Who is Shawn Gossman?
I’m Shawn Gossman, and this is my official blog! I’ve been a practitioner of content creation and digital marketing techniques for over twenty years. I’ve learned a lot and gain a lot of skills. But I always just used these skills for myself and my own online innovations. Nowadays, I want to teach you how to use the skills that I’ve learned and I want to provide that at no cost. And that’s why this website exists!
Even More About Shawn Gossman
I blog weekly on this blog and a hiking blog over at Hiking with Shawn. Hiking with Shawn is a local outdoor recreation brand I created from scratch and turned into an enterprise of tourism related to hiking and more. I rank number one on Google for most of the keywords I target, and I’ve acquired hundreds of thousands of followers and views on social media. I accomplished these milestones through my content creation and digital marketing skills.
While I write about content creation and digital marketing topics on this blog, my true writing passion focuses on hiking and outdoor-related content. I’m a freelance outdoor writer and marketer available to hire for outdoorsy brands, businesses, blogs, communities, organizations, and influencers who need help with their strategies.
The skills I’ve picked up over the years include blogging, online community development, content creation (text-based and media), search engine optimization, social media strategy, social media marketing, copywriting, advertising, and digital marketing strategies.
I have a lot of proficient skills in various platforms, including WordPress, XenForo, Uber Suggest, Keywords Everywhere, SEM Rush, Google Search Console, Google Analytics, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Patreon, Google Suite, Photoshop, Lightroom, and the Microsoft Suite.
I have a Master of Business Administration from Colorado Technical University in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
I’m in my 30s and loving it. I live at the very bottom of Illinois in the City of Metropolis, the Official Home of Superman. I’m an avid hiker, cyclist, and outdoorsman. I’m very tall. I have a large beard. And I’m a giant Teddy Bear you’ll ever meet.
I hope you’ll enjoy visiting my website, and I hope I’ve helped you with it!
