But avoiding B2C Telemarketing List unnecessary (too) long sentences and words is of course always a plus. As in the example with Elsemieke, you will probably notice that the active sentence is shorter: Elsemieke is putting the finishing touches to an article. Elsemieke 's article is being finalized .
