We thought that with the ongoing debate over Flash and HTML websites that we would take a minute give a very quick look at the strengths and weakness of both Flash and HTML when deciding to develop a website.
It is important to note that many companies do have websites with a CMS platform, CoreMedia and others, which have extensive HTML programming that reflect aspects of Flash. That being said, we thought that it might be good to see what all the fuss is about.
When deciding on a website you need to ask yourself the same question that every marketing person with a brand or client asks themselves, “Who is our target audience?” Because that answer will give you a starting block for developing and creating a website that will get you noticed. And it will make you start thinking crictially about how to be accessible by your audience.
Newman Partnership, Ltd. has created a chart that shows some of the general strengths and weaknesses for both Flash and HTML. We have been infromed, by our creative designer, that in the HTML Strengths row it should state that you can also add video, sound and image expansions.
Newman Partnership, Ltd.’s experience is not strictly subject to programming and writing coding, but we are specilized in developing strategies that help with being the most impactful for targeted audiences online.
Newman Partnership, Ltd.’s next blog post will review questions that we ask when designing or updating a website. And who is using which format for creating websites.
