Just a quick question, I am creating my first flash banner for a website, and I wanted to know if I should embed the link to my website in the flash file. Or, should I tell the company I'm sending it to, to link it themselves?
Just wondering what is customary when sending Flash banner ads for advertising purposes.
If it is better for me to embed the link, then I have the following issue:
I created the flash banner and I tried testing it on my website. But I couldn't preview it without a AC_RunActiveContent.js file in it.
Surely I can simply send the .swf file to the company that's hosting my banner without having to send along the AC_RunActiveContent.js?
Or, should I just send the .FLA file and let them sort it out.
Thanks for any help
If you are doing this for a customer, it is best to discuss these matters with the customer.
Normally clients supply a document - not only giving details of links, but also restrictions on swf size and maybe what maximum player to target. Usually links are supplied via a CLICKTAG mechanism, with the actual link being supplied when the advert is loaded.
As mentioned already ask your client.
