Welcome to Hello Gossh, a once-a-month newsletter for website creators who want to be or already are website entrepreneurs. We talk aspiration, inspiration, revenue, audiences, tech, trends, content, and more to help your website thrive.
Get together. Create something incredible.
What’s the news?
This week we launched the the Gossh Marketplace (don’t worry, this isn’t a fluff promo piece to impress the boss.)
What is the Gossh Marketplace?
The marketplace is for experts that are experienced third-party designers and creators. They are all reviewed for their years of experience and quality of work. Our Gossh Experts can help create content, finish an existing site, or build a new one with our website builder.
That makes it a good time to talk about our vision. From the very beginning we set out to connect people with what matters most — the experience and to help the content creators become website entrepreneurs.
What do we think?
We say it often: concentrate on what you are good at, and do that one thing really well. This allows you as the entrepreneur to grow your business.
We have some amazing designers with outstanding results. Yes our list is small but we plan to extend over the coming months. We believe our experts can bring the strategic and creative thinking that makes your website stand out from the rest.

Looking ahead with Gossh
Design is at the heart of almost everything we do. From how we spend our time and how we understand the world, to the way we connect with people.
We believe it’s the journey from our earliest ideas, to the incredible things we build. Design has come a long way over the last couple of years and so have we.
Today, Gossh is much more than a website builder, It’s a home for the entire creative process, it’s where you can do your best work and share it with the world.

Our Actionable Advice
Get creative: Sally didn’t set out to become an online entrepreneur. It happened because because of a simple idea of bringing people together.
Think beta: Sally conducted a pilot program and tested her idea with friends and family before going full steam ahead into the business
DIY: Create your own platform and audience, so you don’t have to rely on social media as anything more than a marketing tool.
Narrow your niche: “If I want to talk to everybody and want to talk about everything, I’ll never reach anybody.”
Some of the story:
Sally has over 20 years’ experience in media including working on TV shows like Blind Date and the Big Breakfast, but it was her experience on This Is Your Life that gave her the idea for the business.
“The video messages on the show would always get a wonderful reaction” – Sally Bocquet
When Sally found out that her husband was going to be in Canada for a milestone birthday, Sally decided to make him a video, a short message from her and the kids, but there were so many friends and family who wanted to be included, that Sally ended up producing a 15-minute compilation with music and titles. Sally’s husband was so surprised to watch it on the morning of his birthday and he absolutely loved it.
Sally got such a great reaction from everyone who watched it and so many requests for video message compilations from other people, that Sally decided to turn it into a business’.
“I had a birthday in November and The Video Message Company made a compilation of messages from friends and family. It was SPECTACULAR. Especially fantastic as I could not travel anywhere to see anyone. It made my day.” – Susan, New York
We love what Sally has achieved and we look forward to seeing Sally bringing more people together for those special celebrations.
