How do you keep in touch with 500+ contacts?

“How do you keep in touch with 500+ contacts?” asked Khalid, whom I met while I was active in Toastmasters. We were connected on LinkedIn, where I’d accumulated a number of contacts along the way.

I don’t. Remember that bit about being a shy connector? I’m still working on becoming more comfortable with pinging people out of the blue.

In general, I make it easy for people to keep up to date with me through my blog and FB updates, so I’m not limited by my courage in reaching out to people. I also look for excuses to exercise my network. I take notes, too.

Don’t worry about the numbers. Focus on creating value and helping others.

    I liked that “Don’t worry about the numbers. Focus on creating value and helping others.”.

    I think when you create value and help others, people will remember you and get in touch. This is a two way road where people come, go and meet. It is not only about you going after and getting in touch with everybody.
    Blog is a good point to go when they need to contact each other.
