As a Worldprofit designer, I find myself surfing web in my spare time to keep up with latest and greatest on World Wide Web. One thing in particular that I like to keep my eye on is FLASH. This medium is one of most powerful marketing tools web has ever seen. After reviewing several sites with flash intros, I noticed that in some there was a reoccurring statement that puzzled me. In one form or another, these intros were trying to convey message "Flash is Future of Web Design". To me, this statement couldn't be further from truth.
Flash is not future of web design, it's present! It's been here for years, and your online business could be suffering if you don't take advantage of it right now! Here's why:
1. Flash Grabs People's Attention and Keeps It!
Flash is not just letters dancing around on a computer screen. The combination of sound, graphics and animation evokes an emotional response from your audience. It allows you to connect with your prospects in a way regular web sites can't compete with. It generates excitement and produces a memorable experience for your viewers. Remember, more memorable your site is, more people are going to hear about it, resulting in more traffic, more leads and more sales!
Don't just take my word for it. See for yourself at http://www.fightercombat.com/ and http://www.cashcomeseasy.com/flash.htm.
Now imagine your product or service being promoted with Flash. The possibilities are endless.
2. Flash Does Not Limit Your Audience!
We all dream of having a site that has rich beautiful graphics and images. There's just one problem, they take forever to download. Will people with slower connections be able to experience Flash on your web site? In a word, YES! Flash was originally developed to create low bandwidth, full multimedia experiences for all Internet users. What does this mean for you? Having Flash on your web site does not limit number of people who can experience it. Flash is best way to add pizzazz to your web site without limiting your audience, which is important, as not all web users have luxury of a cable connection or better.
