The internet holds a wealth of information that can be both a blessing and a curse for your productivity. Especially if you’re a startup, you’re going to need a few tricks up your sleeve to help you get stuff done. Search the chrome store and you’ll find so many apps you won’t know where to start.
Here at Owler, we polled folks across the office and came up with our favorites. Not just another list, these 6 chrome extensions are tried and tested. They’re guaranteed to help you work faster, stay productive, and do things you didn’t even know were possible. If you aren’t already using them, you probably should be. And did we mention, they’re all free. You’re welcome.
- Business- Rapportive
This nifty tool links your contacts in Gmail to their social profiles. When you send or receive an email, a little box appears in the corner displaying valuable information sourced from Linkedin and other social media sites. See location, job title, company, and more.
- Sales- Email Permutator
Need to find the email address of a prospective client? Although not an extension, this useful site will curate all possible emails using a first name, last name and the company domain. You can then copy and paste the suggested emails into Gmail and work with your Rapportive app above to determine the correct email of who you’re looking for.
- Productivity- Clipboard History
Have you ever copied something to your clipboard, while simultaneously working on four other things? You paste… and it’s not what you thought it was. Clipboard history comes to the rescue by storing all your previous copied work.
- Marketing- Grammarly
Grammarly checks your spelling and grammar, creating more credibility in your writing style. It catches misused homophones (there/they’re/their) as well as corrects the nitty gritty boring grammar rules you probably haven’t thought about since grade school (article use, modifier placement) Note: Unfortunately, it does not work on Google Docs.
- Design- Full Screen Capture
This extension lets you screenshot an entire web page, not just what you can see. It’s great for developers, designers, and anyone needing to see a scrolling capture of a website.
- Life Hack- Momentum
Get your zen on every time you open a new tab. A moment of calm to increase your productivity. Set a daily focus, your to-do list, and get inspired with a calming photo and inspirational quote.
Have a great (and productive!) day from everyone at Owler.
