I am a big fan of Google Chrome not only as a browser but for the power it brings to your marketing with a range of extensions and add-ons to your browsers that cannot only save you time, but also powerup your Marketing.

Boomerang for Gmail

The ultimate email productivity tool. Send later, track responses, use AI to write better emails, and free yourself from email interruptions.

Boomerang allows you to schedule messages to be sent or returned at a later date. Write a message now, send it whenever, even if you’re not online. Track messages to make sure you hear back, and schedule reminders right inside Gmail™. Know whether your email got read with cross-platform read receipts. Free yourself from constant interruptions using Inbox Pause, while still getting notified about the emails that matter.

Boomerang also helps you to postpone (“snooze”) incoming emails, by making them disappear from your Inbox into a folder or label, then bringing them back to the top of the message list at the specified time. It helps you keep your Inbox clean, without losing track of important messages. Boomerang is also the only reminder service that can alert you if you do not get a reply to a message.

Boomerang also brings an AI-powered assistant, Respondable, directly to your compose window. As you write an email, Respondable predicts the likelihood that the message will receive a response and explain that analysis in an easy to understand way, all in real-time. Respondable guides you toward writing a message that will be effective in starting a conversation (or keeping one going.)

Boomerang’s latest productivity feature, Inbox Pause, helps you get focused by temporarily delaying the arrival of messages to your Inbox.

Check My Links:

Check My Links is a link checker that crawls through your webpage and looks for broken links. ‘Check My Links’ is an extension developed primarily for web designers, developers and content editors.

When you’re editing a web page that has lots of links, wouldn’t it be handy to be able to quickly check that all the links on the page are working ok? That’s where ‘Check My Links’ comes in.

‘Check My Links’ quickly finds all the links on a web page, and checks each one for you. It highlights which ones are valid and which ones are broken, simple as that.

We all know Keywords are key to online Marketing! The Keywords Everywhere extension is a free SEO keyword research tool that shows you useful google keyword search volume and cost per click data on multiple websites. This tool saves you the hassle of copying data from various websites and using the google adwords keyword planner to see relevant search volume and cpc data.

I would love to hear what tools you are using in Google Chrome for your business

TubeBuddy:

TubeBuddy’s channel management browser plugin helps content creators, brands, and networks save time and grow their brands directly from within YouTube. Best of all you can start for Free.

There are many tedious tasks that people end up skipping even though they are extremely important for the success of their channel. For example, with each new upload, you should add Cards or Annotations to the videos, create a professional looking thumbnail, share the video across social networks, publish a copy to Facebook, optimize the title / tags / description and use your existing video to promote the new upload.

All of these items have a huge impact on the eventual success of a video and if done manually, could easily take hours. With TubeBuddy, the entire process takes just minutes.
