How to clean up your address book

Clean your address book and contacts

If you use an Android phone, Gmail, or G Suite (Ex-Google Apps), you have a Google contact book. 👥 And it's often chaos: duplicates, single numbers with no names or pictures associated, missing or false email addresses, incomplete information...

In short, it is impossible to find your way around or even identify people. Just looking at this mess makes you want to pull your hair out.

However, a clean Google notebook is so much more comfortable... and efficient: among these contacts are your prospects/customers! 🤝

Why should you clean up your address book?

Some issues prevent you from using your Google Contacts address book effectively. 📘

  • So many duplicates: double, triple or even more contacts. Sometimes you have entered the same contact in different forms: their name on one side, their email address on the other, their number without their name here, another email address there... But all these contacts are indeed the same person! 🙋 As a consequence, you can't find your way around, and you waste time looking for your contacts.
  • You don't have the email address of your contact. Contacting them becomes very complicated, which limits your prospecting.
  • Some business email addresses associated with your contacts are false. Emails will not arrive at their destination. An email sent to these addresses degrades the reputation of your domain. And the sentence is irrevocable: your messages fall into the spam folder.

  • Missing or non-standardized information (lack of civility, first names with spelling mistakes, etc.) prevents you from personalizing your contact.

This mess slows 🐌 you down when you're trying to achieve your goals, but cleaning it all up by hand would take an enormous amount of time.

There are many solutions on the market that address each of these problems separately. But until now, none of them have been able to solve all of them.
