Let’s face it, networking has become one of the most important practices today not just in business but on a daily basis. In order to maintain relationships and acquire the ones that are convenient for our organizations, or that will enrich our  personal lives in any kind of way, we need to engage into constant communication.

This is especially true since the emergence of social networks such as Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Linkedin and other platforms. Derek Coburn is a financial advisor that started a successful management practice which he has been running since 1998. Coburn wrote on his website that he began “using non-traditional networking strategies, which included creating an informal networking group” consisting of his best clients and their top advisors, to triple his revenue and improve the quality of his business and his life.

Traditional Networking isn’t working anymore…

In his book, Coburn explained that “traditional networking isn’t working anymore. For successful 21st century business people, large networking events and the mountains of business cards they produce have become a waste of time and valuable resources.

It’s time for a new, modern approach to networking.” But what does all of this have to do with Sharing Contacts for Gmail® anyway?

As stated in their website, Shared Contacts for Gmail® is the simplest solution for sharing your contact groups across your organization or with any Gmail users.

Users benefit from sharing, with no limits on the number of contacts, groups or collaborators. Barry Glassman, founder and president of Glassman Wealth Services, a Northern Virginia financial advisory firm, wrote for a review on Coburns book and cited a perfect example on how to make accurate networking: “If you send out newsletters to your connections, stick to providing information that is relevant and interesting and not overly self-promotional.

Otherwise, clogging up people’s inboxes will do more harm than good.”

Shared Contacts for Gmail® will help you to focus on bettering communication.

Shared Contacts for Gmail®  will help you to arrange yourself in  the organization and categorize your groups depending on the kind of people these contain in order to engage in a solid communication and sending them the relevant information that will keep them from disconnecting from you.

What is even better, you can create even stronger connections when all of your colleagues can share their additions to that specific group and provide the organization with the relevant information for that contact so everyone else in the company can have it and progress together.

Rebecca Johnson is a marketing and innovation executive and a user from this app. In her words,  Shared Contacts for Gmail®   “has  a simple yet powerful interface. We have many groups and contacts and users are very happy to keep up to date information. Great value for our productivity.”
