Contact List Management with Plaxo

Chris | Live Tech Support | Video Help | Add to iTunes – I bet you’ve seen those emails. “Join Plaxo today! It’s free!” or even from your friends “Join me at Plaxo!”. Yeah. I used to delete those, and never even checked it out. Low and behold once I did try it tonight… I was seriously impressed. Excellent work, Plaxo!

Plaxo is ingenious! You can sign up for free at Plaxo will take all of your contacts from everywhere… Outlook, MSN, Yahoo, AIM, Mac, Google… and centralize them in one location!!! It’s about time! I mean, seriously. I have too many contacts, in too many places. Yes, many of them are the same people, just in different places. But imagine… every time one of them changes a phone number or email address, I have to log in to all those various places and make the change to my contact info. Now, all I have to do is make the change in one place, and Plaxo updates it everywhere!

Plaxo does the same thing with all your calendars. It will synchronize them so that all the information and appointments are in one central location. This can make things much easier on you, and make it less likely for you to double-book something.

There is a Plaxo Premium, as well. For $50.00, you can get the added features of a duplicate contact remover, unlimited Premium eCards, assisted data recovery, VIP support and mobile access to your contacts and calendar. I’m not convinced that those added incentives are worth the $50.00 at this point, but the free version for me definitely is.
