Flash Point ~ Note to Italian Wineries about your WebSites


Stop setting up your websites with FLASH!

We don't need the whole story of your beginning, your mission statement, everytime we go to your site.

We don't need to hear your music and we don't need to have you take 1/4 of the viewing screen to make for a small little presentation.

We need to get in and get on with it!

Most of your Italian connections are still dial up.You lose them, too.

We cannot use your information to share with our clients
(i.e., your customers)

It's gotten old...It's not cute...Stop it!


Go back to a simple presentation....


S-I-M-P-L-E

Not P-A-R-T-I-C-O-L-A-R-E....

You are right. Simplicity is the word. And, if you really have something to say, say it simple. If you don't, just don't do it.
I've read plenty of pages, not only on the internet, but also in very dear wine magazines, filled with nothing. Usually starting with something like: from the time of the romans, wine had been done here.....bla bla.
About the dial up connection, unfortunately for many of us, including me, there is just no choice. Scattered in the countryside, we are jus not interesting enough for telecom company to spend some many for ADSL.
