How to Build Your Ultimate Contact List

There was an interesting article at FreelanceSwitch, a web site for freelancers: “How to Build Your Ultimate Contact List” by Martha Retallick.

It’s an article packed with useful tips on managing your contacts database and what makes it interesting for me, Martha describes her experience of managing contact list with Contact Expert:

As for me, I like to keep things simple. I’ll pass on the electronic day planners and phone call reminders, thank you very much. Capstralia’s Contact Expert is my weapon of choice, and I use it as an electronic card file for everyone who is someone in my life.

My favorite feature is Categories, which allows me to sort my contacts into one or more lists. Take the president of my neighborhood association, for example. I have her on my Neighborhood Issues and Newsletter lists. (“Newsletter” is what I use for generating the recipients list for my studio’s monthly e-mailing.)

I view my contact manager as a one-stop shopping source for the information I need. If it’s a prospect’s phone number, there it is, right below his name. Or, if I need to send a friend an e-mail about that lunch we’re planning, there’s a clickable link that fires up Mozilla Thunderbird, and off the message goes.
