Address books

Over the years, we have seen various ways to collect personal information and for getting your name out there. A few years ago, we took advantage of the promotion to get some cards made up  with our e-mail and names on them. We drop these into draw boxes and such at trade shows. I have also bought a little book that people can write in when we are on holidays, they can put in their address and any information they want.

Now in todays world, all I have to do is bring my phone along and we can do it automatically.

What methods do you use, after meeting and making friends of new folks?

Care to share?

My cell phone is usually in my pocket and if I want to make a note or add a contact I can do so there. Even works for making notes while shopping if I see something I want to look up more info on later.

Most of the time I swap E-mail, I can put them into e-mail address book on my cell phone.

My cellphone. Will just add info to my contacts

Cell phone usually...

OK, I admit that I am behind the times. I'm still using a dumb phone. I have created online "calling cards" printed with my address, phone #, Facebook link and email address. I hand them out on cruises to my new friends so I can keep in touch with others after our cruise. They were inexpensive and have a beach theme. I receive a lot of compliments on them.

Always have a phone to put info in, but we’ve thought about getting cards. We each have business cards (from more than one job each) but something non-business, with personal contacts for us, seems kind of nice. Is there a name for that? Would it be “personal card” instead of business card?
