You config looks good to me, all you need is a static and an access-list.

I need to ask, don't you think your isp could be blocking port 80 incoming ? Lots of isp are blocking port 80(http) and 25(smtp) to prevent users to host web and mail server unless they pay more for it.

An easy way to test that would be to change these lines:
access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any interface outside eq www
static (inside,outside) tcp interface www www netmask 0 0

access-list outside_access_in permit tcp any interface outside eq 8080
static (inside,outside) tcp interface 8080 www netmask 0 0

You could then try to open your website on port 8080 like this

If your website works on port 8080 but not on port 80,  you'll know your isp is blocking port 80. If that is the case, you can either use another port, or use a web redirector (not the best thing to do for maximum chances your customers will get to your site) like this one:
