Just got back from interviewing Keith Petri, head of biz dev at eDealya and founder of CNSLT.us. Keith did an interview with me a few weeks ago, and here he is again, talking about the best way to keep track of networking contacts.
When I first came to NYC, my goal was to get a job as quick as possible. In order to do that, I had to meet as many people as possible. I also had to build relationships with them.
Eventually, my list of people to follow up with, which I was tracking on pieces of paper, became too much to bear and I stopped following up with everyone.
That’s when I reached out to Keith Petri through Ohours and he suggested using Pipedrive to manage sending followup emails. It worked, and I brought him on today to show you how to do it.
Sit back, enjoy this lengthy video, and I hope you come away with one or two things that will help you on your quest to find your dream job.
I hope you liked that, go ahead and thumbs it up on Youtube if you did.
To recap, here’s the full-size screenshot of Keith Petri’s Pipedrive:
Also, here are links to the tools mentioned in the video:
And the email script to use on a cold contact if you ever lose touch:
I hope you have a great week!
