HubSpot CRM is free to get started (though there are paid available depending on your needs.)

3. Grammarly Chrome Extension
Let’s face it, it’s been years since we learned about pronouns, nouns, and verbs from Schoolhouse Rock videos. Not a writer or a perfect speller? Not to worry. Grammarly gives manufacturing salespeople a handy around-the-clock editor to review and refine emails, blog posts, social posts, and sales documents. Best part? It’s free and checks your grammar, spelling, and word choices so you can feel confident that you’re using the best messaging every time you engage with prospects, customers, influencers, and co-workers. Get Grammarly here.
4. Giphy Chrome Extension
GIFs are a great way to ‘break the ice’ with prospects and customers in your sales emails, blogs, and social posts. Your prospects and customers are sick of seeing the same boring emails. Adding a GIF is a great way to insert personality into your emails and cut through the clutter. Just make sure you double-check to ensure there’s no cursing or inappropriate words on the GIF before sending it! Giphy Chrome Extension allows you to search for GIFs, and drag and drop ones you like into your email or content. Get Giphy here.
5. LastPass Chrome Extension
There is nothing worse than trying to remember countless passwords with varying characters and complexity. Not to worry, you don’t have to memorize or even write down your passwords. By utilizing the LastPass Chrome Extension, you can sync this information across all connected devices. Additionally, utilizing LastPass as your password manager creates another level of security with your login information. Get LastPass here.
