We can’t emphasize enough how import your contacts are to your success. Simply put: a lost contact = lost revenue.
There is no excuse for not having your contacts up-to-date. It’s a total rookie move to not have all of your valuable contacts at your fingertips.
It’s 2019 and it’s time to finally get your sh*t together.
New year’s resolutions don’t magically actualize; their seeds need to be planted and watered before they can grow. And we’re here to help you do just that.
Your future success depends on the strength of your present network
Those proverbial “seeds” we mentioned a second ago? They come in the form of clients and leads. Partners and colleagues. A speaker from that networking event and a water cooler friend from your old coworking space.
The bottom line is: The connections you make are the bread and butter of your business operations. You know as well as we do how essential they are; as such, you simply cannot afford to skimp out on their contact info. Leaving that data out of date or not readily available can have legitimately detrimental consequences for your organization.
After all, quality of leads is ranked the greatest challenge to email marketing success:

We’ve even written in full about this pain point of maintaining rich contact data, as well as its absolute importance in every marketing strategy. Emails are ubiquitously relied on for acquisition and retention purposes by companies of all sizes. And those emails, in turn, rely on quality contacts.
With the right resources, though, you can improve your contacts. You can bolster your communication efforts. You can better create meaningful business relationships, now and forever. And you can do it all with relatively minimal effort!
