A time saving tip

How do you organize all those business cards?

I have used this system for years. It is called Cardscan Executive. 

I simply insert Oval Living.comthe card, it scans it  and the info is captured into a database. I have entered 100s of cards at a time.

I collect cards from every trade show and enter them into a database. I have over 25,000 in my database.

Cards have a very important item the email address.

I need one of those since we all get a ton of business cards. Thanks for the tip.

I had heard that most of these card scanners did not do a very good job -- glad to see you are reporting this is working out well for you.

Is this a re-blog?

For some reason or other I seem to remember having seen this identical information before Darrell.

BTW, did you stick with Market Snapshot?

I have one of those and have never set it up. Maybe I should give it a try. -Ingrid

It sure would be handy after a trade show or RE/MAX convention.
