The Story So Far

The story Behind The Man, Behind UberFunnels

Welcome to UberFunnels. My name is Wes James and I am an Irish guy who has been designing, building and marketing websites for nearly 15 years!  I built my first website for my own local construction business out of necessity.  I used a program called Website X5 back in 2006.  It was a Windows based program that let you build websites and upload the finished site by connecting to cPanel through FTP.   It was pretty basic but it did the job for a local contractor website. I don’t use it anymore but it’s still around. I expect it has improved a lot since then. 

Building websites became my hobby.  I swear, there were days where I spent more time building and optimizing my business website than I did on my actual business. Every bit of free time I got, I used. As I got better, I found myself starting all over again with a fresh design or more features.  It was time well spent because I gained a lot of experience over that time with my new found digital skills.  This led me to starting a bunch of online stores. The first of which was vertically integrated with my contracting business. 

The online store sold related products and often those products needed to be installed by a contractor (me). But I didn’t hire an agency to build the store. Instead, I taught myself how to do it using WordPress and WooCommerce. Just like my business website, I was always refining the design, optimizing the speed and promoting the store online.   From there, I learned how to run Google Ads (burning through my own cash until I figured out how to do it properly) and anything else related. 

I now had multiple stores and a contracting business. I worked six to seven days a week, 12 to 14 hours per day often skipping lunch. Something had to give, and it did.

Fast forward to 2018, I was a little burned out and I was at a stage in my life where I wanted more free time to spend with my family.  I didn’t want to deal with customer support, shipping returns or employees. So, I left the contracting business and store behind. 

Blogging caught my eye. It was much more flexible and passive. So in late 2019,  without too much thought, I started a blog about web design and digital marketing. The first article was a detailed guide on how to build a website with WordPress buy before it got any traction, the site got hacked. This resulted in a Google penalty. 

While I was figuring out what to do next with the  site, I came across ClickFunnels. I started building funnels and designing templates which is when I decided to build UberFunnels, a resource site for sales and marketing funnels. 

My Mission with UberFunnels Is To Help You Leverage The Power Of Sales Funnels To Grow Your Business Online with Tutorials, Training and Templates.

Content On This Site

All the content on this site has been planned and edited by me to ensure it meets the highest quality standards. I am the chief editor and chief funnel designer. That said I use freelancers from time to time but everything is approved by me before being published. This is to ensure all information published is accurate and you can trust it to make informed decisions.

As much as possible recommendations made in this blog are based on actual user experience. In other words I only recommend things I use or have used at some stage. For example, I pay a monthly subscription to use ClickFunnels. And I use it every day. 

I spend a lot of time researching content for the site. As well as investing my own time and money into improving the site. Whether that’s hiring writers, building new funnels or putting together training. 

All in all, I want this site to be a place you can trust and that is not rigged by brand sponsorship so you can use our information to make the best decisions for yourself when it comes to planning your trips.
