7. From a web browser, hover over any name anywhere on the internet to update existing and create new contact records.

Prospect contacts automatically from multiple pages across your browser

Hover over as many contacts on a page as you want to build multiple records at once. This new feature comes in handy on the web pages you want to create lists off of, such as Linkedin and Twitter. If you navigate to another page, the widget will not delete your data. The only way you would lose the data is if you closed the widget. You can clear everything you don't need or merge duplicate contact records with one click. 

For example, if you are going to be attending a conference, you might want to build a list of speakers before you go. You may begin by checking out a Linkedin post by one of the influencers who will be attending the conference. You can quickly add the influencer, as well as a group of people who are interacting with their post, in one fell swoop using Nimble Prospector.

You can keep building your list as you navigate away from Linkedin onto Twitter. Try looking up relevant hashtags and finding discussions around the conference at hand. You can then add people who are engaging with those hashtags to your list for further action, such as tagging contacts for group messaging. 

Add Stay in Touch Reminders from Anywhere You Work 

Never miss an opportunity to connect and demonstrate just how important your customers and prospects are to you by utilizing Prospector 2.0’s Stay in Touch feature.

This feature offers a dynamic way to stay top of mind with your most valuable contacts. Use this feature for any contacts you have that you want to keep in touch with on a recurring basis, i.e. someone you want to contact weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. 

Here’s how to set a Stay in Touch reminder from Prospector 2.0:

Hover over the clock icon in the right hand corner of Prospector 2.0.

After clicking the clock icon, you can choose the interval of time that you would like to set for your Stay in Touch reminder. You can set reminders for weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually, or set custom periods. 

Once you send a message to your contact, the "Stay in touch" reminder will reset to the original interval you set.
