You can import a spreadsheet of contacts and/or sync the contacts you already have in your phone or other systems you might be using, as a good starting place. Database Health Report.
The Database Health Report provides a good overview of how many leads/contacts you have in your database, but more importantly puts a focus on the lead sources they came from and how much information you are adding to each person's contact record.
As you start lead generating (sending emails, door knocking, posting on social media, etc.), you can use the Designs applet, in Command, to create free professional designs that are branded to you and your business:
Once you have established your database, in Command, utilize Tasks in Command to systematize your process and ensure no contact is missed. You also have the ability to create one-off email campaigns to provide a quick and easy touchpoint, to a group of contacts in your database.

Opportunities is the system we use to track our current and potential transactions, within Command. Each Opportunity (current or potential transaction) starts at the Cultivate Phase, where you can track an Opportunity before you have even set an appointment, and will be tracked through to the Closed Phase. In the Lead Follow-up section of Ignite, the focus is on identifying contacts who are ready to do business. The Cultivate phase, in Opportunities is perfect for this, where you can customize your Opportunity pipelines with stages and custom checklists, to ensure you systematically cultivate relationships.
Command Designs, have templates for listing and buyer presentations that have been professionally created and provided for your use. You can access the templates, and then customize the content to your branding and the clients needs. You can then download the design and use it at your appointments.

In Command, you have the ability to customize a Buyer and Seller Guide to fit exactly how your business runs. You can add or remove steps, edit the information within the steps, and also re-order the steps of the guide.You also have the ability to set up Client Updates where you can designate Opportunity checklist items for Client Updates, where your clients will be sent a daily email, which will include a report of the Opportunity checklist items that you have completed that day.
You had an introduction to Opportunities, in the Lead Follow-up section above, but the Transactions section is where Opportunities becomes the main focus. This is where you can customize the transaction phases of your pipelines to fit your transaction process, and where you can get documents e-signed, submit compliance checklists to your Market Center leadership for approval, and submit Commission request once the transaction has been approved by Compliance.
