Company Branding

Do you have a company, do you have a domain name, do you use a hotmail or yahoo address for your email? WHY?

There is nothing more unprofessional looking to your potential customers than a company that uses a hotmail, yahoo or similar email provider address. 

Even if you use "funky", "bright", "fresh" advertising, an email provider account implies that the advertising company may not be as professional as they could be. 

Each time your email address is read, you will be losing business. = free advertising for you = free advertising for Hotmail

If you have your own domain name ... use it!  Set up all your email addresses using your domain name. 

Look professional, get more customers and get free advertising for your company every time your domain name is published.

UK holiday makers are now being offered the change to "smelll the sights" of Egypt before leaving for their Egypt vacation. A branch of the Thomson travel agency will be introducing Smellyvision at its store from this week. Holiday makers will be able to take a virtual 3D full-sensory guided tour of Egypt with a headset that emits evocative aromas such as herbs and spices at Cairo's open air market, musty smells of a pharoah's tomb, refreshing sea breeze and coconut suntan lotion. The device will also play the sounds of the attractions through earphones and display a film of them, using 180 degree footage. The technology will be rolled out to other agencies across the country from January. Presumably Eau de Egyptian toilet and traffic fumes will not be on the menu!!

The 28th Cairo International Film Festival

The 28th Cairo International Film Festival, the biggest in the Middle East, opens tomorrow at the Cairo Opera House. A total of 180 films from 49 nations will be screened from 30th November to 10th December. For the first time three Egyptian films will be presented in the official competition, as opposed to the usual quota of two. The festival has chosen Italy to be the guest of honour this year as a continuation of the Egypt Italy year that started early 2004.
