Tool Tuesday features digital tools I actually use and recommend to my clients. No one pays me to say these things. I like sharing.
This one’s for Gmail users only. (Sorry everyone else. Gmail’s the best!)
Rapportive is like caller ID for your Gmail contacts – on steroids. When you open an email from a contact, Rapportive replaces the Gmail ad in the right column with great info on your contact such as:
- Contact’s photo and title from LinkedIn
- Recent Tweets from Twitter
- Facebook profile and other social networks plus your relationship with that person on those networks (are you connected, friends, following)
- Notes (which are private)
Here’s what it looks like:
You can send friend requests, retweet, follow and connect right from the Rapportive side bar. It’s great for growing your network and enhancing your relationships with contacts.
