    6 Reasons Why Using Flash is a BIG Mistake

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    Most web designers and web design companies will try to convince you that if you want your business to have the best site possible that you MUST have a flash site. Flash, for those of you who are newbies, is a software program that can create really cool special effects and animations.You can either have flash elements embedded in your website or you can have your entire website done in flash.

    Now I will be the first to tell you that Flash can make a site look pretty cool, but if you are actually trying to make some money from your online business that using flash is a BIG no-no. Here’s why.

    1. Too Much Time
    It takes way too much time to download an all flash website. Even though broadband and DSL users are growing there are still too many people that are still on dial up to rely on using an all flash site.

    Your potential customers will get ticked off at waiting an hour to download your beautiful website and will leave to go to the next one.

    A lot of times, designers will say that they can fix the download problem by making smaller portions or chunks of the main site. So instead of having to wait for just one huge file, you now have to wait for a huge file every time you click on a button to go to another part of the site.

    It does not fix the problem at all. Your customers are still gonna get ticked after they click on your product button and then realize they have to wait another 8 minutes to download that page too.

    2. Annoying Intro
    I see a lot of websites that have these flash designed intros. The concept is to have a really cool looking intro to the company or product before launching the main website.
