    It's quite funny :D
    So I was eating with my friend and talked about facebook marketing. I asked how he was doing and he asked me same questions. So all the talking was around the facebook.. My friend and I were finishing and suddenly one lady came and asked me: "Are you a marketer?" I said that I have learned about that on the internet (BHW!! Thanks :) ) and I'm trying to promote my pages on the internet and so..
    She told me that she just made her company and can't find much customers and don't know nothing about marketing. ( one person complany )
    So I asked how she promotes her business and what is her tactics. She answered that she have a fan page with 32 likes.

    I sensed that I can make some money with that.. I bought two coffees and started to talk.. We talked and I show my pages and stuff and teached basic things what to do. In the conversation she mentioned that she even don't have a website.

    I told how important is for a startup to have a website and told that I could make one for her.

    I got the job. I think I use wordpress as it's the easyest for me and for her.
    So the niche is gardening and its local. I use keyword tool to use best keywords and also use All in one SEO to it. As I was asked to make a website I focus on website not in SEO.

    She is a little bit "hipi style" and said that she want a unique page.. I don't know how to create my own wp website and ofcourse this money what I get is not worth it so I need youre help to suggest me some cool and simple template for me :)
    I'm thinking of 3 colomn with slyder theme but it's quite usual.

    Also we talked about facebook marketing and there is a change that I can promote her fan page for money too. :)

    So what theme you suggest me ? :)

    So good feeling!:)
    Also I would like to thank all users in BHW because without that I'm sure I would not be in this position where I'm now! :)

    Maybe she just looks for one night adventure instead of marketing... :)

    Go on wix All you need to make super professional looking websites. In fact, you can make any kind of website there and they all look really good and classy. Picture how twitter and Instagram look like. Screw the HTML templates they suck

    I couldn't disagree with this post any more. Wix / Weebly websites do not look anywhere near "super professional", or "really good and classy".

    I would be embarrassed to make use of one of these websites for my businesses and you should be too. If you're incapable of installing WordPress and paying for a $35 theme from ThemeForest, you can tweak or customize a free theme that will still look a lot better than using Wix.

    urm, people on here are making money converting wix/weebly sites to wp and you are advising him to go that route? thats not fair.

    @OP congrats on the deal, I suggest you to themeforest type in your keyword, find a theme you think will do
    come to bhw check if its already uploaded - test it out and see if you can handle it or if it easy to work with or w.e.
    If it fits perfectly go buy it from themeforest.

    ps: dont use cracked themes for your customers

    Go on themeforest and if you don't want to pay for one of the themes, most of the popular ones can be found for free,
