This is the first time I’ve been confronted with having to compete with another (well made) TF theme on page one of Google. This should be a fun challenge :D

Ever happened to you?

I can’t say I’ve had that happen to me before but I have had a client link to their competitor’s website as an example of what they’d like their website to look like too. Upon loading it up, it was quite obviously a ThemeForest theme. :D

We’re everywhere. mwahahha! :evil:

In Alaska, we’re a little behind the times… It seems all local businesses either were built with a RocketTheme joomla template or have people making them that have stepped out of a time machine upon arrival from 1999.

Same situation in Germany! A lot of businesses have 10 year old websites…

@JamiGibbs – Did you tell your client it was a TF Theme? What did they say?

@the rest of you – Sales pitches must be easy in your neck of the woods :)

Yes, definitely. They were already aware of the marketplace but didn’t realize it was a theme.
