10 free Chrome extensions for digital marketing

Updated: Feb 13, 2020

In the previous article I have shown you 12 digital marketing tools for business owners.

In this post, I will show you 10 Chrome browser extensions that are free to use to make you save time with your daily tasks.

There are so many activities that require time to complete, but with these add-ons you can complete them quicker.

1. MozBar

MozBar is a free Chrome Extension that makes it easy to get advanced metrics and do all your SEO on the go. Using Mozbar you will get the most important SEO information returned:

  • Ranking of Google search results

  • Page authority

  • Domain authority

  • In-depth information and link analytics

2. Grammarly

For those like myself, for which English is not the primary language, Grammarly is the must-have tool to write sentences without any spelling mistake. This is what Grammarly does: check your spelling, suggest synonyms, add or subtract words from your sentences. It’s completely free for as long as you need.

3. Lightshot

Simple and convenient screenshot tool. Select an area, edit your screenshot and upload it to the server.

You can send the screenshot, upload it on your browser and send it as URL, add arrows to highlight important areas and text to describe.

In fact, I use Lightshot for every single screenshot you see in my blog.

4. Page Analytics Add-on (by Google)

The Page Analytics Chrome Extension allows you to see how customers interact with your web pages.

This tool doesn't add much more than what Google Analytics already offers. The main advantage is that you can view on-page stats directly from your browser.

  • Show certain segments only e.g. New visitors

  • Select date ranges and compare date ranges

  • Show real-time users

You will then see this panel and bubbles overlaid over your page showing the number of clicks on each link.

5. Tag Assistant (by Google)

Google Tag Assistant is a free browser add-on to identify and troubleshoot the installation of various tags on your website.

These Google tags can be:

  • Google Analytics

  • Google Tag Manager

  • Google AdWords

  • Remarketing

  • Floodlight

Tag Assistant will show you the tags installed, the implementation errors and suggested fixes.

6. Hunter

The Hunter Chrome extension helps you find contact information. Hunter only finds company email addresses.

The tool can be used on any website you want - if the icon is coloured orange, that means it’s found some emails for that particular company, so you can click on it to check the results.

This extension is particularly useful for when prospecting new bloggers or journalists for SEO backlink strategies. If you want to find contact information Hunter does this for you.

7. Lusha

Even better than the previous one, Lusha not only finds you email addresses, but also telephone numbers and complete names and surnames.

LUSHA review

The extension appears as a small icon whenever you’re visiting a Twitter or LinkedIn profile, and lets you know whether they have any contact details in their database.

8. What Font

WhatFont Chrome and Safari Extension is my favourite option when it comes to font discovery. To activate the tool you must click the What Font icon in the browser menu. Now you can select multiple parts of text allowing a better visualisation of the font breakdown.

9. Full Page screen capture

The last Chrome extension is the Full Page screen capture. This extension captures the full page with one single click.

The uses can be:

  • Full screenshot of a landing page

  • Comparison of two landing pages

  • Export of the images in PDF or as image file

  • Share of the image with other

10. ContactOut

ContactOut is a game-changing tool that finds not only your lead's personal email addresses but also their phone numbers.

30% of the Fortune 500 use this tool for business intelligence and recruiting, and it boasts an edge over the competition in terms of volume, accuracy, and focus on personal information
