flash & mutlimedia designs
Web design isn't sex. There's no place for foreplay. Visitors don't need splash pages, Flash pages, mystery navigation or whatever silliness you think will put them in the mood. The web is wham, bam, thank you ma'am. With a web page you don't have to entice, you just need to get to the point.*
With the above in mind, one might wonder why anyone would consider having a website designed based around Flash - a program which allows animation, sound and interactivity for websites.
While Flash websites might look great, a majority of Internet users run computers and Internet connections that do not allow for large downloads which Flash requires. This means many users who view Flash websites miss out on the seamless performance you might be hoping for, and will stop short of viewing any further content on your site.
In addition, Flash websites are known for not being search engine-friendly, thereby restricting the number of users who will find your site in the first place.

Netsell thinks beyond the front page when it comes to marketing your business. You may wish to have a multimedia presentation created onto a CD to distribute to clients. You may need an advertisement on your site that will catch the eye of visitors before anything else on your site, or you may have a separate area of your website that requires more user interaction than what a regular website allows.
The key is in knowing when and where to use Flash. Netsell has provided assistance in creating the Flash-based sites shown at right and can help with the incorporation of multimedia into your website and marketing package.
To ask one of our staff about how Flash can be used to benefit - and not hinder - your business, please contact us.
