Can't get statamic demo site to work properly

So I'm new to Statamic and I've been trying to get it to work, so far without success. Here's what I did:

1) I downloaded the statamic-cli and used it to create my basic website (which I named website1).

2) I moved the sample.htaccess to .htaccess

3) Altered index.php and added website1 to the $site_root and changed the system.yaml and added website1 to the URL parameter.

When I did that, I do get a page, but images aren't loading and the sections are not working either. This doesn't really surprise me since the URLs they're pointing to don't actually exist.

For example, the first image points to:


And of course, there's no img/asset folder. Now, I'm familiar enough with Laravel and routes and know you don't always have to take things literally but in this case, I honestly don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Could anyone help me?
