Posted by dwspriyanka on May 30th, 2011

There are a number of ways that the flash banner might be a disadvantage to both the web surfer as well as the developer. Though in most cases the disadvantages of the flash banner may be more perceived by the surfer, the developer might also have some serious disadvantages on using the banners. In recent technological advances, there are lots of systems that are used to block some of the flash banners that are mostly in the form of pop ups. One of the disadvantages of using the flash banners is that they are a distraction to the web surfers. The design of the banners is supposed to attract attention of the internet user and in achieving the purpose they do distract the user of a given site. Sometimes the distraction might be welcomed based on the reasons one is one the internet, but in other instances the distraction can be a very huge nuisance to the user. Due to this the internet users usually use control and preventive measures to block the banners from appearing during the web browsing experience and this means and ineffective marketing strategy for the developer. To the developer of the banner, there are normally two great disadvantages that are presented by the flash banner. One of the disadvantages is the limited bandwidth and space with which to communicate with the browser, thus the pop-ups. The basic design of the banners may only take on little information in regards to a given product and service and thus the stress of choosing the data to attract the customer with. Choosing the data to use might be quite difficult when one considers the user of the web. Some of the individuals using the internet might have blocked the presentation of the banners while others might be handicapped and that would mean accounting for other means to grab the attention. In the event that the campaign of the banners is not a success it would mean loss of revenue to the developer and this is a high chance to take with most people blocking the flash banners.
