This past week I was having a conversation with a colleague and she asked me how I was able to keep all of my various contacts straight.
She tells me, "Between face-to-face networking, social networking, clients, prospects and people downloading stuff from my website it is tough for me to keep all of my out reach organized!"
I can relate! I have to admit, this was a much easier task for me before I got heavily involved with social media. Back when I had to keep track of phone conversations, email and face-to-face it was simply much easier to do!
When I asked her what she did to manage all of her communications she showed me a pile of sticky notes on her desk.
She shared that she was often forgetting important followups and conversations that she had because they would get lost in the piles. Sound familiar? Then stick around, because I'm going to share my secret weapon today!
