Why should you start using AddyMate?
When it comes to managing my contacts you’re probably like me. I used to have my contacts all over the place in various email accounts, on multiple machines, in the address books of various mobile phones, having collected the contact info for all the people I’ve met in disjointed places. Sometimes this info has languished in my box of business cards as well because I never got around to entering them in one place. Personal life changes like buying a new computer or phone or switching computers when changing jobs would simply make it even worse.
Occasionally, I’ve had to dig around in my various email accounts – Outlook, Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail or phones because I wanted to get in touch with someone. Needless to say this made me lose a lot of precious time. And a lot of the times, the info I had for that person was outdated that my emails to a buddy from the past would land up in an unattended mail box or worse, the phone number I had for him would have been disconnected.
More so, the thought of losing my address books to a hard drive crash or loss of a phone energized me into devising a solution where I’d be able to store all my contacts in one unified address book which would be accessible from anywhere & from any machine.
While social networks were great at getting in touch with long lost friends, I would hesitate in exposing all my social activity by befriending them. I have a way to connect with friends & family in my immediate social circle on Facebook, & ex-colleagues on LinkedIn, but what about the rest who don’t fall into these specific relationships?
AddyMate offered me the ability to maintain my address book for all the people I’ve come to know so that I have a way of reaching them when needed, but without necessarily establishing a pseudo relationship through these social networks. By connecting with these people on AddyMate I could benefit from being able to reach them at their most current coordinates, and in turn offer my connections the ability to reach me where I wanted to be contacted.
You can benefit from this as well by using AddyMate to aggregate your address books outside of your social networks & decide what contact information you share with each person.
As you go back to school, take up a new job, or make new friends you can hold onto their contact info with the reassurance that you have the ability to access this anytime you need it. Life is complicated enough to not have the ability to reach someone slow you down.
Start using AddyMate so that you can startÂ organizing an important part of your life.
