Delete a Contact Record

Customers are going to engage with your business in many ways.  Your full contact list is used for tracking all of the different interactions your have with customers and is very important to your business.  You can track customers projects, sales, notes, emails sent, and content engagement. Because each customer engages in different ways, it's important to tag customers so you can identify their preferred communication method and connect with them in a way that works best for them! 

Remember:  If you delete a contact record, you delete all information related to that contact and may lose valuable information on past interactions, communications, and purchases.  This action cannot be undone by application users and requires a data restore performed by Keap.  Please refer to the article Restore deleted contacts and other data.
