Every business owner knows that networking is everything. Even if you dread this aspect of running a business, you know that expanding your sphere of influence is the best way to generate leads, and well, more business. Doling out business cards and scribbling names on cocktail napkins are practices that have mostly been relegated to the past, and this has given way to email, social media, and scannable QR codes. With the multitude of analog, and digital contacts you make every day, how are you keeping track of, and organizing these potential leads? Perhaps you have been consumed with other aspects of running your own business, and have put off the onerous task of untangling your contacts.
Why is it Important?
Having your Contacts all in one place prevents you from having to toggle back and forth between multiple lists and directories.
If you have a team of employees or co-owners, an effective contact management system will allow for easy collaboration.
You can group your contacts for targeted marketing.
You can save time and confusion by deleting duplicate contacts and keeping only the most up-to-date information about each.
You can take notes, as well as track communications with your customers, all in one place.
Having an organized, digital contact library allows you to store everything on the cloud, freeing up your devices, and clearing both physical and digital clutter.
