3 Signs You’re Overthinking Your Website

If you are focused on:

1 Perfection rather than iteration

You spend more time working on your entire website, waiting for everything to be perfect, before you tell anyone about it or start making sales, rather than creating a website that you can iterate upon in stages.

2 The platform and not your goal

You’re stuck in where your website should be, rather than what it should do for you and your audience and so you are spending more time in Facebook groups asking for recommendations than working on your business.

3 The price it costs rather than the problem it solves

You’ve chosen a platform and now you need to pay for it. You’re stuck looking at your bank account rather than your watch. You can earn money. You can’t earn time. How much time would an upgrade save you? What could you do with that time?

You’re overthinking your website. Ultimately, you have an idea of what you think a website needs to be, because you’re not focused on what it actually is.

A website is a hub.

It’s what you use to clearly direct your audience to where you want them to go or do next and provide them the proper information to get there. It’s the Grand Central Terminal of your web presence:

That’s it. That’s a website.

So why do you overthink and obsess about it and turn it into this big production? Because you’re one of two things:

You’re overwhelmed

You’re on how to even get started. You say things like “I understand Instagram better, so I’ll just use it” or “where is the best place to build my website” or “I can’t afford to have a website” or “where do I go to get a dot com?” phase.

If that’s you, you are why I created the free Get Online, Witch! course. It’s designed to just get you fucking up and online and going. And learn to make quick decisions along the way.

You’ve started, but now you feel unclear

You’ve started, but now you’re not sure why you’re doing what you’re doing or how to talk about it now that you have to actually put it out there. So now you’re going to spend more time on your website than any other portion of your business because it’s where you can feel like you’re “doing something”. It’s where you can set yourself up to self-sabotage and confirm the self-bias that “I can’t do this” when you need “an out.”

If that’s you, you are why I started The Fiery Well: a place to get the support and focus you need for your website so you can fucking do what you do best.

And it’s why I am now creating the Clarity framework which will take you from understanding your “why” to crafting an entire web presence that represents you.

Because the more clear you become, the less the website matters.
