GETTING NIMBLE

We all tend to forget about the thousands of email and social networking contacts we have, but a new program called “Nimble” brings them together in one place.

It’s a business-oriented program, something like “Salesforce,” but more social. The CEO is Jon Ferrara, who founded the contact management software company Goldmine and sold it for more than $100 million several years ago.

The heart of Nimble is a messaging window with tabs for email, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and FourSquare. Click on the FourSquare tab to see where your signed-in friends are now.  Click the “all” tab to see recent posts, messages and activities. If you remember a conversation but not the name of the person, search by keyword. (Who knows, maybe it was about “Cleveland.”) Nimble also brings in a Google calendar and allows you to make task lists and set appointments.

The business version is $15 a month after a 30-day free trial (no credit card required).  There’s also a free personal version, but you’re limited to 3000 contacts. (The trouble is, we have 3,001 contacts. Somebody’s gotta go.)

  1. My brother suggested I may like this blog. He was once totally right. This post truly made my day. You cann’t believe simply how much time I had spent for this info! Thanks!

  2. You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually one thing that I think I might by no means understand. It seems too complex and very extensive for me. I’m looking ahead to your subsequent publish, I’ll try to get the grasp of it!

  3. Great post. I used to be checking constantly this blog and I’m inspired! Very useful information particularly the last section 🙂 I deal with such info a lot. I was looking for this certain information for a very long time. Thanks and best of luck.
