Anybody reading this have their own personal assistant? Show of hands, please.

Just as I suspected, not many of you. Unless you really “just got it like that,” there’s a good chance that you are like most of us and have to do everything on your own. If you are in sales, or a budding entrepreneur, most of your time is spent actually meeting and talking to clients. As much as 80% of your time, in fact. This leaves very little time to do the necessary research on a prospective client, research that could be the difference between gaining a client or completely missing the opportunity. And that’s something that none of us can afford to do on a regular basis.

There’s a little app here though, ready to take on the role of your personal assistant, that will do all of that grinding research for you. Charlie App (@AppCharlie) takes data from around the internet and sends you a compiled list of information you will need to know for your upcoming meeting.


Charlie does this by crawling thousands up thousands of sources to compile a list of pertinent information. It then takes all of that information and puts it through advanced algorithms to give you everything you need to know at your fingertips. Maybe your client recently received a round of funding and you missed the memo. Charlie will let you know about it. Charlie will crawl blogs, tech sites, and even company websites and publicly available company databases. Charlie will only crawl and pull publicly available information, no underhanded methods are used.

Take your research even farther by letting Charlie compile information gathered from social sites. Business information is great, but sometimes you need something a little more personal to close the deal. Maybe your client is a huge Detroit Lions supporter, Charlie will let you know. It will also gather a list of any shared connections you may have with your client. All more tools to help you secure that elusive client.


Gathering information for an upcoming meeting is one of the most crucial steps in eventually securing a deal. Sadly, it is normally the most time-consuming aspect, and many of us simply do not have the time to read hundreds of blog posts, tech articles, all the while slightly stalking them on Twitter. Let Charlie become your personal assistant and go into every meeting prepared.
