You probably have several databases with contacts stored in them. You have your email account, your cell phone, your laptop. Are the contact lists all the same or do you have different lists in each place? If you want to make the most out of your contact lists then you need to merge them.

You should take the contact lists you have in each place and make sure they are the same. You do not want to miss someone just because they were on your Blackberry and not your email list.

Besides just getting all your contact names in one place, you will also be able to merge all the information you have for each contact. This is essential. You do not want to make careless mistakes, like sending seller information to a buyer because your database is not up-to-date.

It can be a lot of work to organize and merge your databases, but it is well worth it. You will guarantee that you have every contact in one database so you can successfully manage them and your business.
