Web Hosting Flash Tutorials
I am in the process of reviewing some web hosting related flash tutorials for my Web Hosting Resource Kit website (the website you are on). I contacted two companies that offer flash tutorials to see if I can get a sample tutorial to find out if I can embed these flash files into the article / content management system I am using. And I have to say – I wish more companies would be that responsive to inquiries. Within 12 hours I had a sample file from each company in my hands. In the end it turned out that I cannot embed these flash files and rather have to build static pages to present these tutorials on my website (but that is a different story.
What are the two companies we looked at? We contacted DemoDemo.com and DemoWolf.com. As mentioned, both companies were super fast in their response time and none of them was picky about handing out a sample for test purposes. Once communication was established I took a closer look at each of the offerings to decide who I would like to work with in the first place. I compared tutorials from both sites as well as I reviewed the terms of a possible purchase.
After weighing the Pro’s and Con’s I was finding, I decided to look at DemoWolf (http://www.demowolf.com) first. Not only do they offer more tutorials ‘for the buck’, I also found their website easier to navigate and cleaner from a visitor point of view.
The tutorials offered by DemoWolf.com are of very high quality and seem to do exactly what the marketing information promises. For the beginning I concentrated on the CPanel/WHM tutorials as all my own servers run the same platform and did allow me to compare and to verify that the tutorials were indeed correct. I have been very impressed with the Voice Tutorials and could imagine that these will catch a nice share of the market. For my own purposes they are overkill as I am only hosting a very small, but exclusive group of clients and mainly provide phone support for my clients. My purchase of a set of tutorials is rather done to complement the content on Webhostingresourcekit.com with some more dynamic features.
I contacted Rob at DemoWolf with additional pre-sales questions and found him very easy to work with. Response was fast and our conversation was held on a very professional level. The purchase process was easy and straight forward. The available information of what they would need from me to complete my order was easy to find and very clear in description.
So, I got my order placed and are already working on setting up the infrastructure to provide web hosting flash tutorials for demo purposes on my website. As the Web Hosting Resource Kit is mainly targeting web hosting businesses, showing them what flash tutorials can do for their business, is a great addition to our library of articles. Look forward to find some world-class flash tutorials here soon. We will also post a more detailed review about the products we purchased today.
