CRM Software


HubSpot is a top choice for medium-sized organizations that want to quickly set up a CRM. While it may lag behind other CRMs in certain areas, it shines in terms of ease and speed of implementation. HubSpot customers can be up and running within a week or two, compared to longer lead times with Zoho CRM and Salesforce. If a fast and easy setup is important, HubSpot is a platform to consider, especially for those interested in digital marketing and help desk functionalities.

Brevo is a good low-cost alternative to more enterprise-level CRM software like HubSpot or Salesforce. They charge per email, not per contact. So, if you have a large contact database, but don’t send too many emails just yet, Brevo might be a good fit for you. It’s also pretty flexible – you can manage your inbox across a ton of channels (live chat, email, Facebook Messenger, etc.) and set up custom automations.

MailerLite is a user-friendly and simple email marketing tool that is suitable for most small businesses. It is cheaper than other tools but has some limitations in automation and spam/design testing. Their ‘Forever Free’ plan has been limited in features, but it still works well for those with fewer than 1,000 subscribers. MailerLite has a mobile app for iOS that allows users to create and schedule newsletters and check campaign stats. Overall, MailerLite is a great choice for creating newsletters, with its drag-and-drop editor and attractive designs.
