Sales is filled with busy work and time-wasting chores. You can get bogged down for days in prospect finding, prospect research, data collecting, and data entry. 

That’s not the most valuable use of your time. Fortunately, there are plenty of clever new and time-tested sales tools that are here to help.

Some of the most convenient ones are chrome extensions. Sales chrome extensions can help you find prospects, find ways to connect with them, write persuasive emails, improve your communication, close the deal, and so much more.

This is a list of 30 of the best ones (that can work on Google Chrome). We’ve organised them into the following nine categories, but you’ll find that many of them can fit into several segments.

  • CRM
  • Email
  • Lead Discovery
  • LinkedIn
  • Writing
  • Prospecting Technologies
  • Video Sales Tools
  • Collaboration
  • Sales Productivity

CRM Chrome Extensions

Are you in love with your CRM? Many salespeople are and the following three chrome extensions have legions of diehard fans. Their chrome extensions are productivity legends.

Streak

Streak | Streak CRM for Gmail Chrome Extension

Streak is a super popular CRM for Gmail sales tool. It’s a chrome extension that works right within business Gmail accounts. 

It gives you three core features: a CRM, email tracking, and mail merging.

  • The CRM tracks contacts, contact information, and your correspondences with them. It also tells you the last time you – or anyone else on your team – emailed them, gives previews, and can be scheduled.
  • Email tracking notifies you when an email is opened, shows a list of them, and lets you mass mail by open status.
  • The mail merge lets you blast out personalised, tracked mass emails by pulling contact information from the CRM’s data. 

Streak is perfect for sales professionals who are obsessed with staying highly productive on email while keeping everything clean and organized. It can be used as an individual or as a team.

One of the best parts is that Streak starts for free!

Salesforce

Salesforce Lightning | Salesforce Chrome Extension

Salesforce is one of the world’s most popular CRMs. If you’re one of its over 150,000 customers, you can integrate it right into your email through a chrome extension. (That’s as long as you have a business-level Gmail account.)

The Salesforce chrome extension works with Gmail and Google calendar. It associates record information – like contacts, leads, accounts, opportunities, and cases – to emails. You can search through or browse information, write emails from templates, and manage tasks.

If you have a Salesforce Inbox license, you can schedule appointments, track emails, view custom records, and more.

HubSpot Sales

HubSpot Sales | HubSpot Sales Chrome Extension

HubSpot users have a chrome extension as well. And this one is specifically for sales! The HubSpot Sales Chrome extension includes email tracking, a CRM, email templates, a meeting scheduler, and a mobile app.

If you want to pay a little extra, you’ll get an automated personal outreach feature.

Email Assisting Chrome Extensions

The average knowledge worker spends 28% of their time reading and answering emails. Does that stat hold up for you?

Modern sales relies on email and most salespeople have to spend a lot of time in their inboxes. You want to make the most of that time.

That means slashing as much repetitive busywork as possible and making your outreach and responses far more effective. The following Chrome extensions can help you do just that.

Lavender

Lavender | Lavender Chrome Extension

Lavender is a sales email assistant that’s still relatively new to the scene. It’s an AI-assisted sales tool to help you write more effective and impactful emails.

Lavender analyses and scores your emails then coaches you on how to get better.

Crystal Knows

Crystal Knows | Crystal Chrome Extension

Crystal is all about discovering the personality of anyone you want to connect with. It gives you personality and behavioural insight, so you can customise how you reach out to them. 

Crystal uses the DISC personality framework which evaluates dominance, influence, steadiness, and conscientiousness. It then tells you the best way to communicate with real-time advice for emails, calls, and meetings.

That kind of insight is gold for sales teams.

Klenty

Klenty | Klenty Chrome Extension

Klenty is an email-focused sales engagement platform. It has a chrome extension that works with Gmail along with Pipedrive, Salesforce, and Freshsales.

The extension tracks email engagement (opens, clicks, and replies), creates personalised emails from a template (still in Gmail), sends scheduled emails, sends automated follow-up, reminds you to get emailing done, and tracks your email performance on a live feed.

Klenty is made to make sales work more fluid and productive. You can automate away much of the manual work like cold emailing and following up with people.

Prospect and Lead Discovery Sales Chrome Extensions

A fresh flow of qualified prospects is the lifeblood of any organization. And it’s the sales team’s responsibility to find these leads and make sure they’re right.

The following six extensions can make this core sales activity far more efficient.

Hunter

Hunter | Hunter Chrome Extension 

Hunter is an email finder and verifier. You can search it by domains or people within a certain company. You can find a blog or other outlet’s article author and their email.

The chrome extension has four features:

  • A domain search that finds all the email addresses on a website you’re visiting
  • A searchable email finder
  • An author name and email finder for articles you’re reading
  • A list-building tool that will save names to a lead list or send them to other sales tools

It’s super convenient and a veritable cold outreach hero.

Snov.io

Snov.io | Email Finder by Snov.io Chrome Extension

Snov.io is a tidy sales software suite that currently includes a CRM, email finder, technology stack checker, email verifier, and email drip campaign tool.

You can also get its email finder as a chrome extension. It has a website lead collector, an individual email finder for websites and social media profiles, a Google search email finder, and a LinkedIn smart email finder. 

The LinkedIn and Google features are the biggest advantages this sales chrome extension has over Hunter.

Find That Lead

FindThatLead | FindThatLead Chrome Extension

FindThatLead is a B2B sales prospecting software for email, social media, search engines, and local businesses.

Its chrome extension finds and verifies emails on websites and LinkedIn. You can compile leads into a CSV list for easy exporting into your mailing program.

Swordfish

Swordfish | Swordfish Chrome Extension

Want to find names and numbers? Then get Swordfish’s sales chrome extension ASAP! Swordfish is for enterprise sales and recruitment teams.

It pulls cell phone numbers, business email addresses, and personal email addresses from social media profiles.

Sounds a little creepy, to be honest, but it’s still a standout sales tool that earns its place on this list.

Clearbit

Clearbit | Clearbit Connect – Supercharge Gmail Chrome Extension

Clearbit sells itself as a B2B data activation platform. That basically means it provides usable data that can be instantly applied across your sales tasks.

Its chrome extension is purely for Gmail users. Clearbit Connect is connected to a massive database. You can search for organisations and find a list of people within them or search the database for specific individuals. It lets you search companies by name, title, or role.

But that’s not all. This sales chrome extension shows useful, contextual information on the people you’re emailing with. It shares everything it knows about them from its database.

Apollo.io

Apollo | Apollo.io Chrome Extension

Apollo is a sales intelligence and engagement platform offering a reliable, robust B2B database. The database consists of over 30 million global companies and over 220 million contacts.

The chrome extension can be used in Gmail, LinkedIn, Salesforce, and across the web. Its core function is as an email finder and open tracker. The email finder can be used on LinkedIn profiles and company websites to discover email addresses and phone numbers. The email tracker shows you when an email has been opened. 

It can also log Salesforce activity when you’re composing emails – but your inbox has to be linked first and you’ll need to set up the native Salesforce integration.

But it does way more than that. This sales chrome extension pulls from the database to give you the inside scoop on websites, corporations, and people.

It shows what technologies websites are using, looks at corporate news, checks their revenue and funding, and more. You can create contact lists and send those straight to your CRM.

Apollo claims to verify all of its information. If you get a prospect’s email address or phone number from its database, you should be good to go.

LinkedIn Outreach Chrome Extensions

When you’re in B2B selling, there’s a very good chance that your targeted contact (or someone else at their organisation) has a presence on LinkedIn.

LinkedIn has over 830 million members from over 58 million companies, most of whom are educated professionals. So, most sales teams do some form of outreach activities on this platform and some run serious campaigns through it.

However you like to use LinkedIn, we think these two LinkedIn sales chrome extensions should have you covered.

Dux-Soup

Dux-Soup | Dux-Soup Chrome Extension

Dux-Soup automates LinkedIn prospecting. It does this by automatically scanning and viewing LinkedIn profiles for you, sending automated personalised connection invitations, and automatically following up on connections with personalised drip campaigns.
