Record Audio Notes

Dave Delaney

I have written before about the importance of meeting people for coffee to improve your networking efforts. I always follow up with a Thank You email and invitation to connect via LinkedIn. I have been guilty in the past of not recording any notes from my coffee meetings which is a big mistake on my part. Do you take notes and refer to them later?

I recently started using my iPhone to record audio notes after each meeting. I limit my notes to no more than 5 minutes tops. I use the iTalk app, but the Voice Recorder or Evernote would be smart choices too. I always title the name of the recording with the person's name who I met.

Some points for my notes include:

  • Who the person is.
  • Where they work.
  • What they do for a living.
  • What they want to do for a living.
  • How I may be able to help them.
  • Resources I should refer to that they mentioned.
  • How they may be able to help me.
  • When I should follow up.

When I return to my computer, I listen to the audio and transcribe the notes. I mark my calendar in Gmail to remind me when I should follow up.

Do you do this too? How do you keep track of the people you meet?
