La Salud es indispensable, nuestro Centro Médico también...

Como si fuse un dispensario médico enorme, así luce el área de Trauma del principal centro hospitalario de Puerto Rico.  El rastro del huracán María se percibe en las instalaciones y la soledad arropa un mundo que nos enajena de una temible...

Crafting a concluding paragraph is another challenge every writer must address during the writing process. Just as an introduction coaxes the reader to keep reading, a conclusion reinforces the purpose of the topic and provides readers with a...

Yeah. I agree with you. I guess the reason I brought it up in the first place is because the digital marketing industry make their money off process, so they tell you that this 'engagement ' process is a long drawn out affair. Back in the day, when we were doing ads, we could totally engage people with a great headline and lead them right to the water with scintillating copy. It's decidedly a different world now, but I, for one, believe that the same mechanisms are as powerful as they ever were, just being under-used. As my sister pointed out last night while we were watching the Yankees get slaughtered, these ads are all explaining way more than they are selling, All I'm saying it that the selling part of the equation is weak right now, because most of the dweebs who are doing the selling, lack the old fart perspective and balls to the wall attitude that they need to really give people a boner.

Hey, you old dog Jim Murray. I'm almost as old as you and have been an ink-stained wretch for nigh unto 45 years and I almost agree with you entirely and I have used way too many 'ands' in this sentence and I don't give a squat. Here's the thing: I don't see a real difference between selling and engaging. In fact, you can't sell a damn thing without engaging with your prospective buyer. Further, in order to engage with someone (which I think you will admit is part of the selling process) at an emotional level, your likelihood of success is low - unless you're selling a life jacket to a drowning person. What much of the content out there right now fails to do is create a call to action. Perhaps it's considered too rude to actually ask for your reader to do something BUT if you've engaged them at an emotional level it ain't gonna be rude to suggest they might want to consider buying your product, making contact, asking a question, subscribing to a list, commenting on a blog. Anyway, I'd be interested in your perspective. You can reach me on the usual channels and I look forward to hearing from you. Your old-fart pal on the north side of the lake!

Una ausencia visible... El problema es que ante la ausencia rampante de un partido y un liderato fuerte y capaz, el Presidente se ha mantenido intacto dentro de su base. Desde el inicio de esta presidencia y mucho antes; cuando apenas bajaba las...
