Review: Demowolf.com Web Hosting Flash Tutorials
A couple of days ago I started looking at flash based web hosting video tutorials for this very website (Webhostingresourcekit.com). After researching the 2 main providers (DemoDemo.com and Demowolf.com) I decided to purchase my first batch of flash based web hosting tutorials from Demowolf.com. My pre-sales questions were answered fast and in a very professional way. I then move forward and made my purchase. The purchase process is pretty straight forward and easy to complete. Additional information to provide was which colors for the text boxes and balloons I would prefer. Of course a logo of my website was required and soon I had everything provided Demowolf.com needed to complete my order.
Within less than 12 hours my order was completed and a download link was provided. I downloaded the tutorials I had ordered. The zip files contained the flash files + a matching HTML file. That is very convenient as all I would have to do now would be to make those HTML pages match the design of my site and a little more search engine friendly. Thanks to Macromedia Dreamweaver that was a snap on all 59 pages for my tutorials. The global "find & replace" functionality in Dreamweaver is extremely convenient. Not having to worry about how embed a flash file into a page was nice and I appreciate Demowolf providing that piece as part of the standard sales package. One warning: If Dreamweaver prompts you to update the page for you due to a possible problem with newer web browsers – deny it and say "no". Why? It broke the flash functionality in the pages. Once I had that figured out it was a smooth ride.
The tutorials itself did meet my expectations completely. Actually they exceeded my expectations. My logo was well placed within the tutorials and clearly identifies these tutorials as part of the Web Hosting Resource Kit. That was an important piece for me and I am very happy how the results look like.
Conclusion: Web Hosting Flash Tutorials are a great service for web hosting clients from a support standpoint. In my case they complement the web hosting tutorials already available from my site. They can show web hosting business owners how these tutorials look like and web hosting customers can independently check out tutorials – away from a web hosting business sales website (on neutral ground so to speak). The service and quality of work provided by Demowolf.com has been outstanding and Rob of Demowolf.com delivered a great value for a great price. Two thumbs up from "The Web Hosting Resource Kit".
