I'm having sort of a mild-debate with myself over which website style to offer / promote to business that I approach for offline marketing.
Basically I purchase templates from Template Monster (instead of paying for an expensive designer) and have it customized for that business.
My question is this:
Should I pick a professionally designed blog theme or should I go with a professional (flash header) website?
The cons of going with a blog:
+Could be perceived as less professional
+Seems mostly suited for websites with new content constantly being added
+Can't have flash animated buttons / images when menus change etc.
The cons of going with a regular website
+No automatic ping with new content added
+No fun / useful plugins for a regular website
+No real interaction with guests / users
It seems like a blog website would be more useful for a say Nightclub, or Entertainment company that constantly has new events etc.
But a "normal" website would be better suited for say a law office, dentist, plumber, etc. that wont be adding new content after the site is made...and is mostly just using it as a "here's what we offer" etc.
Am I wrong? Would a blog work for basically any small business website?
Example blog template for Small Business:
Example regular website template (with flash menu/header):
24800 template preview
Which one seems more professional / appealing?
