What is the best CRM/database tool (or just techniques?) for managing your personal network?

I'd love to be able to tag by location, role, etc.. filter for "all [founders/lawyers/VCs] in [London/New York/etc]."

    A fast, easy, collaborative hiring tool

    Beth HudsonSocial Media Marketer, Recruitee · Written
    Although Recruitee is generally for recruitment and hiring, its talent pools can also be used to keep contacts and tag them with location, field, etc. There is a great search feature that will allow you to filter by that, and the pricing is reasonable. You could also use the careers site to create your own personal site! Just a thought. Here's a free trial if you're interested: https://recruitee.com/signup

    CRM in your inbox - for Gmail

    Streak integrates with your Gmail and absolutely free. There are preset pipelines and one of the personal pipelines will suit you the most. It works like a spreadsheet and each cell here is called box. Every contact is categorised into different stages. You can create tasks for yourself.

    NetHunt CRM should do the trick for you. You get a full-featured CRM system inside Gmail for a fraction of the alternatives price. Plus it has a bunch of nifty email ninja features like tracking, mass mailing and followups.

    I'm a premium user because I love all the add-ons, but this works great even on the basic plan. Keeps all my contacts synced across my gmail, phone, LinkedIn, etc. I tag my contacts according to things we have in common (travel, founder, etc) using the Chrome extension in my gmail inbox and it's made it much easier to be mindful about my contact management.

    Realtime spreadsheet-database hybrid

    If you're going to get quite serious about building a database, Airtable is a powerful and friendly spreadsheet for that. Otherwise, I'd stick with simply adding fields to your Google Contacts.
