A question we hear a lot is “what do I do with all of these business cards?” Here are my suggestions:
- Purge cards from people you don’t even remember.
- Purge duplicates.
- Spend a moment on each card, and decide if you really want, or need, that person’s contact information. Purge those that you don’t need.
- The top 3 suggestions will probably weed out at least 1/2 of the business cards you have, if not more. Enter the remainder into a contact management database such as Outlook or ACT!.
- Toss the cards after they have been entered into the database.
