You may, like me, stare at the phone in horror.
Pulling up the contact list and staring at the “stalest” contact, the one we haven’t spoken with in a long time, is just as bad.
- Check the contact’s web site.
If they have a blog, read the last half-dozen blog items; make a comment.
Your contact will surely be notified of your comment, and probably will moderate it.
You have re-established contact.
You haven’t given anything of value (except a nice stroking!), but you have brought your name before their eyes.
And isn’t that what you wanted?
P.S. Make a tickle-file to re-visit the blog after 2 days to see if they commented on your comment – here comes a dialogue phone call!
