InterwestIT agrees. Remaining in touch with your contacts other than by Social Media is essential.
Be the master of prospecting your contacts for new leads by following those rules but also by using a re-mailing service — that has some kind of contact management built-in.
Some of these are MailChimp.com, Constant Contact. Our advice is try the free version. Most will permit you to upload segments of your contact list by ASCII text file. Try them, see what happens.
