On sending out the right image

At my Institute, we get the El Financiero newspaper - I like it quite a bit. It’s very well balanced, with opinions from all of the political and economical points of view. Of course, it has huge business and market sections which I don’t usually even care on looking at, as I won’t understand much anyway. Those sections usually include advertisements for potential courses and businesses.
Today, Nadezhda showed me an ad that’s just beautiful - It shows off the level of commitment and seriousness a company has. It is so beautiful that it deserves me copying it in Spanish and translating it for your further enjoyment. Of course, if somebody stumbles upon this advertisement at my personal blog - I don’t know them, they might just be serious but clueless :)<blockquote align="center">GRUPO DE ASESORES PROFESIONALES

Anyway… Would you believe in the seriousness of a professional-looking group of economists, paying around US$2000 for 1/4 page in one of the leading Mexican newspapers? By the way, their offices are located at one of Mexico City’s most exclusive, expensive areas. But… For ${deity}’s sake… COME ON! Please tell juan_zzz to get a decent-looking mail and domain! Having their main contact addresses at two free mail providers, Starmedia and Yahoo, does no service at all to their professional image! How can people still not pay even a bit of attention to those basic details?

The basics?

“How can people still not pay even a bit of attention to those basic details?”

Simple, it’s call: procrastination.

‘nuff said!

Re: On sending out the right image

Well… that email seems ugly, but is common to me. I live near to the Mexico-Tuxpan federal road, and I see lots of trucks with:,,

Those emails are like that because that enterprices don’t care too much about the computer stuff, they have an email, but i guess they won’t pay for a site, or they haven’t thought about that.
