Time Saving Tools- Google'ing

Part I of III

The following series on time saving tools with your email and contact databases will help you explore the most efficient and productive systems that essentially cut mindless work at the knees.

Not a day goes by where you aren’t “Google’ing” your favorite restaurant, clothes, cars, and most importantly business necessities.

For example, I know that if I am going to spend a valuable chunk of my time on the phone with someone trying to strategize, reason, and persuade, then I need to do my homework. It is in my best interest to get the latest and most pertinent background info on this contact to show a genuine effort and curiosity of how a mutually benefiting relationship can come to be.

The funny thing is that most people go to something like Google, and then to Google Maps for example, and then type in what they are looking for. Very few people actual streamline this process and get exactly what they want with just one click in their database.

The solution that we have developed is an automatic one-click search that queries your contact database or whatever it is that you are looking into and not only in Google, but all over the web with any search that really matters in a business setting.

You can click one button in the Who Is window of Snapshot for ACT! and immediately get a whole caveat of end-result browser windows. With this one click you can find such things as Google map directions to an office, images of a contact, blogs of a contact, podcasts of a contact, YouTube videos of a contact, and a laundry list of other resourceful online tools. The search settings can also be combined to do a search of a contact and their company or just the company alone.

What would take you far too much time during the course of a day has been streamlined by Who Is, so give a contact one click directly from the ACT! database and save yourself some time.
