While it may take more time upfront, taking extensive notes about contacts allows you to create meaningful interactions. Two tips:

  1. Record information after an interaction. Note anything that will help you remember new contacts and encourage positive conversations in the future.
  2. 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.
