E-Mail Marketing
17 normas de etiqueta para los e-mails

27 junio 2012
En los e-mails, como en las conversaciones cara a cara, hay que saber que mantener las formas. Aunque las leyes de la comunicación por e-mail son, en su mayor parte, normas no escritas, ello no les resta validez y es necesario acatarlas si no queremos vernos metidos en situaciones comprometidas.

Para ponernos sobre la pista sobre lo que es y no es adecuado en la comunicación por correo electrónico, Ragan.com ha publicado las siguientes normas de etiqueta para los e-mails:

1. Escribir mensajes simples y claros. A la hora de redactar un e-mail, hay que atenerse a lo importante y evitar dar rodeos innecesarios. La utilización de frases cortas y listas simplifica además la lectura del e-mail por parte del destinatario.

2. Responder todas las preguntas y ser proactivo. De esta manera, se evita perder tiempo enviando y renviando correos electrónicos a terceros.

3. Responder rápidamente. Lo mejor es responder siempre en un plazo de 24 horas desde la recepción del e-mail.

4. Utilizar fórmulas de cortesía. Aunque se trate de un e-mail informal, es recomendable que éste incluya siempre las palabras “por favor” y “gracias”.

5. No descuidar la ortografía, la gramática y la puntuación. Lo contrario denota falta de profesionalidad.

6. No escribir todo en mayúsculas. Así se fomenta la claridad en la lectura del mensaje.”

NINE WOMEN WHOSE REMARKABLE LIVES DESERVE THE BIOPIC TREATMENT
From Renaissance artists to aviation pioneers, suffragists and scientists, these women led lives destined for the silver screen

BY LILA THULIN , MEILAN SOLLY
SMITHSONIANMAG.COM | Feb. 7, 2020
This year’s roster of Academy Award nominees is much like those of previous decades: predominantly male and white. Of the 20 men and women nominated for acting awards, only one—Harriet’s Cynthia Erivo—is a person of color. And despite strong offerings from the likes of Greta Gerwig, Lulu Wang and Lorene Scafaria, the list of Best Director contenders is all-male for the second year in a row.

The movies set to be honored at this weekend’s ceremony fare no better in the diversity department. 1917, widely predicted to win Best Picture, has just one female character. Anna Paquin says a single line in the more than three-and-a-half hour The Irishman, while Margot Robbie, who plays actress Sharon Tate in Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood, is seen more often than heard. Because these and similarly biographical films take place in the past, which is assumed to be “overwhelmingly white and male” in and of itself, points out Aisha Harris for the New York Times, filmmakers have a ready excuse for centering their narratives on white men.

Hollywood creatives certainly have the artistic license to continue elevating stories dominated by white men, but as Harris writes, “[L]et’s not pretend that this isn’t also a choice—a choice dictated not by the past, but by an erroneous (and perhaps unconscious) belief that white men have done the most and lived the most interesting lives of us all.”

Amazon Celebrates 25th Birthday

“Amazon, the largest internet company in the world , is celebrating its 25th birthday. It was founded by Jeff Bezos on June 5, 1994 in a garage in Seattle . At the beginning Amazon was an online bookstore. In the past 2 years it has become the largest retail company in the world and dominated the world of online commerce.

Understand The News In English
Do you want to read the news in English? It’s a great way to get more news, from more points of view, as well as to get lots of English practice. However, it’s not always easy reading– or watching. Here’s a little help for understanding common news vocabulary and the way news is investigated and reported in English-speaking countries.

Near the bottom of this page there are links to more help to understand the news you read or watch (ESL or simple-English news sites).

Incidentally, did you notice that the word ‘news’ is treated as a singular, uncountable noun in English? So we say the news is good or bad, never ‘are’ or ‘were.’
