Contact Management Systems
NOTE FROM JENNIFER: In conjunction with the creation of the new Contact Management with Soul board, I'm moving all our past contact management discussions here!

I need some help here.  I've had my license for not quite two months now.  I've got one listing and had a pre-listing appointment today that I am very confident will be mine as well.  Yay me!  I've been pouring over my MLS, doing CMA's on all my friends' houses for practice, driving around getting lost to learn the area better, attending seminars and all around doing everything I can to educate myself about the local market so that I sound like I know what I'm talking about and NOT like a bright green rookie.  

So far so good!  Today's appointment proved that all my research and practice has paid off... thanks VERY much to Jennifer's books and advice.

So, I'm pretty much off and running.  I'm using Outlook as my primary contact management program, but am really not getting anything out of it beyond basic email.  I've got MyRedTools (Keller Williams) for free for three more weeks, but after over a month of using it I REALLY don't see much benefit to it, and it seems like WAAAY more trouble than it is worth.  Seriously, if I actually sit and manually put in every contact I have it is going to take me weeks.

As a rookie, I REALLY need some opinions on what contact management system is worth investing in.  I tried the RedTools because it was free for two months, but I just don't see the benefit of paying $35 a month for it.  If I were farther along in my career then maybe, but I also don't want to not start off on the right foot.  I've visited the Gary Hall site and really, it just confused me further.  I could use some Soulful input here.
