What is a goodsecure way to file clients on pc?

by nsaretards / September 6, 2012 8:03 AM PDT

I have a small business and only have one personal laptop. and believe it or not, just use a track phone and my home phone line to use for personal and limited business. . I really can not afford paying a fifty dollar a month for smart phone services.. what are my options for setting up a log for clients addresses phone #s etc.?I suppose the latest track phones offer somewhat a cheaper monthly service package. I do not like texting or phone talk/ no games..all i am thinking is a useful option to log clients to help nuild and speed my local handyman business a bit. tia john

What do you mean with "file clients" and "log clients"?

I guess, I want to eventually store/file all my customers on a memory card for my convenience instead of using pen and paper address book. I have a pc laptop I use for internet. I am using windows 7 , how do I create a job calendar list of addresses and phone numbers for my customer base? I was also thinking I could eventually print out seasonal mailing fliers. Is this something I can do with with windows 7 ? tia

I find a spreadsheet (for example MS Excel) a nice way of keeping such data. And if you include the email address as part of the data, you can use mail merge in MS Word to create mails.

That is a good idea, I did create a webpage and currently trying local free advertising but it really has not worked as well as local town district paper advertising. I do not think to pay for premium advertising of my webpage on any online advertising outside of say a twenty mile radius of my business where I'm not servicing anyway. ALBEIT, still running a go daddy webpage i built for over a year on free service ad sites like craigslist, ebay/ sites that offer free advertising. So far, I am not impressed and kind of disappointed seeing all the competition in these local online directories.
