This week’s Random Act of Organizing is a ‘two-fer’.
I recently attended a networking event. When I asked someone for their business card, they told me they had given out their last card. I asked, to whom? They told me. I asked that person to see the card. I took a picture of the card and gave it back. Now I have it and know exactly where it is when I am ready to follow up.
Have you heard of CardMunch? An app for your phone, which is a business card scanner that creates a contact list. This list is a separate list from your regular contact list on your phone.
Keep a supply of business cards in your glove box. That way, when your business card holder is running low or out of cards, you can ‘reload’ in your car. Think about it, you need your business cards when you are out and about, you really don’t need 500 – 1000 business cards in your office!
How do you organize your business cards after a networking event?
