1. Should I use Flash in my website
While Flash can add an element of motion to your site, it also slows down the time it takes for you site to load and, in some instances, can actually be more of a distraction than anything else. Also, certain mobile devices (like the iPhone) don't support Flash, so that content would be unviewable. People visit your site for the content, whether it's text or images, you want to make it as easy as possible for them to see it.
2. Can I use images I found off the internet
The best answer to this is NO! Unless you pay for an image (stock photography, for example), or have permission from the creator of the image, it's illegal to use images from other sites on your own. Most people consider it a plus if you use their images while blogging about them and link back to the original site (you're providing free publicity for them) but, technically speaking, it's still not legal.
3. What's a press release?
It's a document that communicates information to the press. Press releases can publicize good news such as events and new product or service launches.
They can be distributed via the post or the web and directed to editors of newspapers, magazines, influential blogs, radio stations, and TV stations. Press releases can also be posted on your site for use by the media.
4. Do I need a press release?
If you have a new service, product or offering on your website, it's a great way to announce it to the public.
Also, when a press release is optimized with keyword phrases that are searched frequently, it can help you rank higher in the web searches.
5. Why should I blog?
There are many reasons, especially if you fall under the category of "small business". Here are a few to start blogging. It's an opportunity to connect with a winder audience and build a community. It's easy to do and low cost (some software is free). It helps you search engine ranking and it gives you another way to communicate with your current customers.
