Spreadsheets are just like anything else. No matter how awesome something is – whether it’s chocolate or Benedict Cumberbatch – nothing is perfect.

The hard truth? Spreadsheets are a bad tool for media lists. Here’s why:

  • It needs you to update it.
  • It wastes your valuable time. Open a spreadsheet, and you’re stuck foreverDead device
  • It becomes outdated the moment you hit “Save.”
  • It doesn’t make searching easy.
  • It doesn’t let you know about new media opportunities.
