Would results like that change your life?

Listen, I never thought it was possible, believe me.Launching a web design studio has given my wife, son and I something that so many of us dream of...financial freedom and the HOPE of generational wealth.

I never would have DREAMED of making 6-figures a year, traveling the world and living life on our terms. It hasn't ALWAYS been like this, though.

Five years ago, I was having difficulty at work at an advertising agency as Marketing Director, hustling to make ends meet, and even fell asleep at the wheel from exhaustion (came out unscathed, thankfully).
To be completely honest, my wife and I hardly spent time together, and I was tired ALL the time, looking for a way out in the form of working myself to the bone.

I couldn't STOP, though.

That's when I decided to FOCUS on website design.  I spent DAY AFTER DAY building website's for friends, family and local businesses while consuming every piece of free content, investing in countless courses and TESTING my chops with new and existing clientele.  
I hired my first Developer, then a Designer and a Project Manager (while being BROKE - I'll explain later) and built out a system that leveraged my team, freed up my time and allowed me to live life on MY terms while running a web design operation from my living room.

That's when EVERYTHING changed...
Since then, I've been able to build more than 250+ websites for local and national businesses including Land Rover, NAACP, WGInc. and other Fortune 500 companies.  All from a home office I love. Being able to pick my son up from school EVERY DAY at 4PM is such an amazing feeling.

This success has given me one of the BEST gifts in the world...the ability to do what I want, when I want with my loved ones and family.  It's even allowed me to travel the world with my family and give my son the childhood i never had.

I want to give this gift to you!

Before I tell you more, I've got a few questions...
  1. Have you wanted to run a remote business, but lack tech experience?
  2. Are you looking to leave your 9-5 for dependable, consistent income?
  3. Do you LOVE design and branding but haven't the slightest idea where to start?
  4. Are you a freelance web designer trying to balance your workload and scale?
  5. Are you worried you have to learn code to be successful as a web designer?
Answered yes to any of the questions above?

Introducing  the Web Design Studio Accelerator

I launched my FIRST course 4 years ago on Udemy, not knowing what to expect.

It went on to be one of the BEST SELLING courses on the platform with more than 2,000+ students and 50+ 4.8-star reviews.  Since then, I've launched two more courses, hitting 7-figures in the process and hosted workshops and masterminds in South Florida, San Francisco and New York City.

At the same time, I've been running a THRIVING web design studio ALL with a small remote team from my home office.

What clients say

"One of the very best guys in the game. John's course has saved me time and money. Recommend him so highly." - Alex Wall Founder of Star Devil Media

"As a Marketing industry professional it is very difficult to find actual companies that can consult and inspire while delivering on their promises. John S. has been extremely efficient and beneficial to my team while never trying to sell something we don’t need. This company is all you need. Period.”
I’m a Web Designer and Brand Strategist focused on helping startups develop website solutions that convert to sales. As Founder of 5Four Digital , a web design studio in South Florida, I’ve leveraged my skills to build several successful multi-six figure companies with a small, remote team.
My goal is to educate and elevate and I accomplish this by providing tools, resources and videos to the design community on YouTube and Instagram each week.
Web design is my passion and it translates across the board in my content. if i can inspire others to develop processes around their business, leverage delegation and community in their execution and build digital products that help others, I've done my job.
Standard Operating Procedures are a set of step-by-step instructions to carry out complex routine operations in your business. SOPs aim to achieve efficiency, quality output and can help you get a TON of work off your plate so you can focus on BIG picture. I packaged up this process and have a detailed training on getting it done.

The
Value Stack

It seems like EVERYONE these days is a GURU.

They take a pic with a flashy car, post some bootleg "screenshots" and post in front of a mansion and suddenly they're a MASTER.  In their courses, they might teach a few tips ANYONE can learn with a couple of Google searches.

Most course creators are professional course creators who know how to TALK. They care about their WALLETS more than their students.

My name is John D. Saunders and I've dedicated the last 10 years to perfecting my craft, helping thousands of agency owners and SMBs with marketing and web design strategy.  I made well over six figures before launching ANY courses and documented the whole process with content and standard operating procedures.

Who is running the course?

I LIVE digital marketing.

I founded an award-winning agency called 5Four Digital 4 years ago with a great team.  We've built website designs for Fortune 500 companies including Audi, the NAACP and NBA superstars including Keyon Dooling.In addition to launching successful businesses for clients, I've done it myself.  Over the past two years, I've sold 3 e-commerce businesses and launched a profitable financial literacy blog called blackwallet.org.

I believe in creating beautiful digital products, growing brands and making profitable businesses lucrative for potential buyers.A lot of that comes from amazing web design.

Lastly, I've hosted workshops, presented for audiences around the globe and LOVE providing value on a continuous basis to podcast hosts.
