When you think of the Gopher brand, what do you think of?

Do you think this flash animation (http://www.gophersoftware.com/images/gopherintro2.htm) captures it or no?

Ok, remove "Step by Step".

Also remove the "smarter not harder" thing and "ON and IN" your business. But leave everything else. Because it seems a little too wordy.

That's an interesting point.
So much of what we do try to promote is to use your brain and think.
In fact one of the reasons why I think you are going to find so much success in the future is because you think about your business and you do try to work smarter not harder. You try to work ON your business and not IN it.
That is the purpose of this forum, I feel.
It's a chance to think things out and learn how to grow.
To learn better how to manage.
Otherwise business is just a slug fest with every other competitor to see who can win by shear endurance.

What are your thoughts?

I agree, you are trying to explain yourself to people, but a lot of times when it is too wordy, you will lose people. *

Also, what happens is someone has a slow connection or the flash loads slow for them because there is so much information. *They will more than likely close out of the site or window before waiting. *I have done it many times.

That is very true. I have to consider that as well.

I just made something for you in the other post.

Thanks http://www.gophergraphics.com/forum/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif

Offer than that, I do love it when a site has flash though, it grabs my attention. But the downside is if it loads slow, I close out of it. I would love to use flash though. I think it's a great idea
