While it may take more time upfront, taking extensive notes about contacts allows you to create meaningful interactions. Two tips:
- Record information after an interaction. Note anything that will help you remember new contacts and encourage positive conversations in the future.
- Organize your notes. If you keep paper business cards, write on the back of a contact’s card, scan it and store it electronically. If you use an app to track contacts, use the Notes section to store information.
