If you're looking to start a website for your business you about 5 seconds to connect with your audience. If your messaging is not clear your losing people and sales..
We look at a website for 5 seconds and ask these 3 questions:
1. What do you offer?
2. How does it benefit me?
3. How do I contact you or buy?
Whether your goal is to make a bunch of money or to have a meaningful impact, your message matters most.
So stop worrying about how nice your website looks, and start paying attention to the words you use instead!
To change your life and the lives of your audience you need to create a business website that matters -
Hi, My name’s James Stafford and I've been teaching people how to start a website and clarify their message since 2012. In fact, over the last 5 years, I’ve made over 7 figures with my website and vlogging and if you were to ask me what’s the difference that makes the difference... I would tell you this – start a website that matters.
Now starting a website is actually the easy part, and thousands of new sites are started every day. You can literally create one in 5 minutes - but very few people will create a website that matters.
Here’s the deal: while I know starting a website is an incredible opportunity for some, the fact it isn’t for everybody.
If it’s not a good fit for you, you’d probably be better off spending time pursuing something else.
So before you decide to start a website here’s the top 5 reasons it might not be for you.
1. Don't start a website (or business or blog) if you're not willing to do the work.
A business won't run itself for you, nor will a blog write itself for you. You need to be willing to put in the work to make it happen.
2. Don't start a website or blog if you don't know who you're talking to. Having an audience in mind is key. It may be the people you sell to or your best friends or a group you're professionally connected with. But knowing who you're talking to will shape what you talk about.
3. Don't start a website or blog if you don't have the time.
If you're feeling pressure from others or from yourself to do it, but you really don't have the time, don't do it. You'd only get frustrated with it eating away that last bit of free time you have.
4. Don't start a website or blog if you just want to get famous.
Find a better reason. Find a purpose. Help people. Share your stories. But don't do it for fame.
5. To be a successful online, you have to like helping or entertaining other people, not just talking about yourself. You should genuinely want to help people. Alway remember this those who serve well sell more.
So if you’re not cool with any of those, blogging might not be for you.
However, that being said, if none of these worry you, then a website can change your life for the better!
For people with the desire and ability, I strongly recommend starting a website for all kinds of reasons.
I started my website in 2012 at Website Made Easy to show people how to get started online step by step with there first website or blog.
Ever since I started WebsitesMadeEasy, amazing things have happened. I’ve made new friends, built a business, discovered creativity I didn’t know I had, and have supported myself in a way that lets me travel the world.
I’ve even received business offers and partnerships, and countless emails from readers that lift me up, and make me thankful every day for being able to share my voice and help people through my content.
When I think back over the amazing changes I’ve gone through over the past 8 years, having a website that has allowed for me to connect with my audience, so i can share my content and make money is at the center of what has enabled those changes.
I’ve been fortunate, and many of my friends have as well.
I have watched friends and peers do amazing things with there website, and I’ve helped millions of other people start there websites through my videos.
When I started my website and blogging, I knew no popular bloggers, and I didn’t know anyone who supported themselves through there website.
I now know dozens of people who earn a living with there website selling there products and services and dozens more whose lives have changed because of it .
The benefits of having a website are easy to recognize and praise, but not every site will reap these rewards. There are hundreds of millions of websites in existence, and only a small percentage achieve the goals of becoming profitable and creating impact by connecting with there audience.
The journey will be hard at times, but it’s the journey where the fun and transformation happens. Reaching the destination isn’t the point. Not when you realize that all the value (and wealth) is derived from the journey itself.
So my goal for you is not only teaching you how to start a website that matters also show you the main ingredients that you have to have on your site to set it up properly to ensure its success.
So if you're ready to start a website that matters then get dialed in.
There's only one caveat though, and that is this is not for everyone. Too many people want to start a website and not have to work for it, and after a decade of being online, I can tell you that is not how it works. You have to really want this and take action on it.
This is about showing up daily and doing the work in coming at your prospects from a place of genuine service and adding value.
I promise. If you're willing to take care of the relationship, then the money will follow and the first place we need to start is with your website because without this key foundational piece, you'll struggle to execute this process.
This means having your website properly set up in a way that's going to authentically connect with your audience immediately. We want to magnetize your website so you're attracting a quality audience that is hungry for more an is actually signing up for your free stuff so you can start building a highly engaged email list.

This video is based on my signature three-step WTC system, which is a proven blueprint to success with your website or even your blog. So here's the thing for years. I struggled to make money online, jumped from around from buying course to course, and getting more and more broken, more and more frustrated because I'd make a tiny bit of money and then nothing in. Long story short, I got so tired of being broke that I swore I would stop buying the latest course with money I didn't even have and just focused on what I found worked.
So when I stripped everything back, I discovered you really only need three things to make a successful website.
You need to propelry build a website to connect with your audience, get targeted high quality traffic to your website and turn those leads into paying and repeat customers.
Three things, website traffic customers, which is exactly what my WTC system stands for. That's it. So here's how this tutorial is going to work.
