Yoga Instructor

yoga-teacher-websites-01As a yoga instructor, I know how tough it is to start out, build a following, and turn $20 classes into a sustaining career. So, I’ve put together a basic package to help get you online, so you have a place to point students when they ask “Where else do you teach?”

Package starts at $247 and includes:

  • Full screen self image (in a Yoga pose, of course)
  • Class schedule, easily editable by you
  • An about section to tell people a little about you
  • Contact form for clients to ask questions and reach out regarding private lessons
  • Two stock images to use as background for “floating sections”

Check out JourneyToYoga.com, a perfect sample, and imagine your image, your schedule, and the send button going to your email address.


You've Got Thesis!

Working with Thesis and Genesis seems difficult in these days of out-of-the-box themes.  However, these frameworks sell incredibly well!

There must be something to that.  Well, there is.  Performance, SEO, and “easy” configuration – if you know how use them.

But, if you’re not finding it so “easy”, Eighteen04 designs sites with both Thesis and Genesis:

  • Two design layouts: Home page and internal pages (worth the cost alone)
  • Opt-in Email integration with Mailchimp or Aweber
  • Color & font customization
  • Social media contact buttons

Thesis is a power foundation.  Put that power to work for $2175.

About Stu

Stu is an ex-IT guru turned yoga teacher. Imagine going from high-paid corporate cog to a few hours weekly teaching an exercise class. Something has to keep the lights on. Enter: the 10+ year hobby of web design. That’s right! More than ten years experience… and it’s something Stu still loves doing. In fact, he learned design formally in his spare time.

A few years ago, Stu delved into the world of entrepreneurship learning the ways of marketing, branding, content creation and e-product development – in a way that a yogi felt comfortable doing it (read: non-sleezy).

Design education is coupled with IT knowledge to create an amazing mix of vision and execution. Inject that with proven Entrepreneur, Blogger, and Web Property experience and you’ve got the catalyst for a perfect business partner.

Stu refuses to stop at just the pretty pictures. You get valuable insight directly relating to your business online, from corporate environment to small business sensitivity to entrepreneur overwhelm. We’re going to show you how to tweak your business while building or refreshing your site!

How can one person do all that? Well… one person can’t! That’s why Stu draws on a corral of blogging, marketing, advertising, design, and coaching partners to make sure you’re getting the best information / advice over above your design and coding.

What Happened to Eighteen04?

Eighteen04 was, and still is, the solopreneurship design firm / brainchild from the one and only Stu. The business of Web Design grew like wildfire; customer after customer refer their friends and colleagues.

It came time to focus the business on specific customers. Stu works best and enjoys the creative efforts of partnering with customers that are smaller businesses, entrepreneurs, or part-time solopreneurs looking to promote their passion project. Is that you?

So, that’s you! Perfect! Would you rather deal with the design firm Eighteen04… or have fun working with Stu?

That’s why Eighteen04 is now Web Design with Stu.

I Still Want to Hear the Story!


In what feels like another life, whenever I felt like just hanging out at home, I’d tell the folks that I was going to Club 1804. That’s the street address where I live. It was a bit of a joke for us all. Things moved on and we’d brew beer and call it 1804 brewery. If I had people over, it’d be “a party at 1804”.

The day came when one of my projects in design school was to design a logo, letterhead, and business card for a company… and Eighteen04 was born. When it came time to create the LLC for the design business, the name choice was obvious.

Worst Email address to try and tell someone… another reason I moved to the new name!

Why work with Stu?

That’s easy!
1. Insanely competitive pricing
2. Guaranteed satisfaction
… most importantly
3. A whole lot of fun in the process
