Top must-have Chrome extensions for digital marketing (with descriptions and links)

If you use Google Chrome, you must know that there are many excellent extensions for this browser. They can make your life a lot easier and increase your effectiveness. I’ll go over a few essential Chrome extensions that every digital marketing entrepreneur should have installed in this post. And I’ll also explain how these extensions can help you with your marketing, sales, and business tasks.

Top 11 Chrome extensions

  • Clear Cache. By using this extension, you can clear your cache and refresh a page with a single click. It will be beneficial while working with websites: publishing new content, renewing blocks, or developing a website.
  • Bitwarden. This Chrome extension is one of the best free and open-source password managers and generators out there. It stores your passwords and digital identities in a secure encrypted vault. I believe Bitwarden is an indispensable tool in the modern world when we use thousands of tools with different logins and passwords.
  • SimilarWeb. It’s a must-have Chrome extension for sure. And it’s the best tool to analyze the competitor’s website and tracks metrics such as ranking, traffic sources, main KPIs, geography, and more. Almost every digital marketer already uses SimilarWeb, but it’s never redundant to remember essential things again.
  • BuiltWith. The extension gives you an overview of the technologies used on a website (CMS, CRM, analytics, etc.). It’s handy for a competitors’ analysis.
  • Google Tag Assistant. Use this tool to verify that you have installed Google tags correctly (GA, GTM, etc.). It’s free and will help you find and fix common implementation problems with tags without too much difficulty.
  • SEO Meta. A valuable tool for search engine optimization. It shows metadata and SEO information in one click, such as title, description, headers, and much more.
  • Analytics UTM Builder. It’s a free all-in-one online tool that helps users create UTM links for tracking marketing campaigns. I strongly recommend this one for those who want to get away from Google Sheets and save time. Remember that there is nothing worse than campaigns or activities you can’t analyze to understand ROI.
  • Bitly. This Chrome extension allows us to shorten URLs. It’s straightforward, convenient, and has a multitude of uses. For example, short links are preferred on social media when you share a website or an article.
  • Grammarly. It’s the most popular grammar checking app. Grammarly is a lifesaver for people who tend to make mistakes in their writing (e. g. typographical and grammatical errors). There is a web app but also a Chrome extension that can check your writing for grammar and spelling errors as you type. Grammarly is free, but you have to pay for the premium version for it to receive more recommendations on synonyms and text stylistics. To be honest, even if you’re a native speaker and English is your mother tongue, you can make mistakes accidentally. So, I totally recommend this tool for everyone.
  • Hunter. A beneficial tool for sales that allows you to get available email addresses on websites. Hunter is convenient to use if you are planning outreach.
  • Honey. Also, I want to mention this extension for shopping. Honey helps track the lowest price, accumulates cashback, and uses the available promotional code already at the checkout stage.
  • Summaries

    If you are an owner of a digital marketing agency, you probably put a lot of time and effort into the quality of your campaigns. Extensions can help you speed up your process and save much time. These I’ve mentioned in the article will help you improve your overall experience.
