1. Zest

Zest is a Chrome new-tab extension that constantly offers you a high-quality content, which is suggested by other marketers. Basically, Zest distills the information overload by using its own community members.

Here’s how it works – Any user can suggest content. Once suggested, the piece of content is being reviewed by multiple other Zest members until it gets to a moderator which then schedule the article to be published on the Zest feed. This way, Zest help you make sure you’re only receiving high-quality content and kills the information overload that’s wasting your time. 

2.Google Analytics URL Builder

The Google Analytics URL Builder is basically a hyper version of the of the Google URL builder tool, which allows you to quickly generate links with UTM’s to be tracked on Google analytics, or any other tracking tool you are using. The extension automatically reads the current URL you are on, and all you need to do is add your source, campaign, medium etc.  The extension will automatically generate the final URL link to be used.

 

3. Google page analytics

The Google Page Analytics Chrome Extension gives you a quick sneak peek into your Google analytics data and allows you to instantly see how your users interact with your website, without the need to open Google analytics in a different tab. The extension icon will be turned on when you’re on any of your web pages with Google Analytics access, and the page data will instantly pop up.

4. Bitly

Make your long links shorter and personally customized with Bitly. Take any long URL you are using, and Bitly will shorten it with one click. Not only that, it also allows you to customize your links with your own text. For example, a shortened link to the Oribi website will look like that after we shortened it, and gave it custom text: http://bit.ly/Welcome_To_Oribi

Bitly is a must-have tool for social media marketers, since social media posts can be limited to characters, and looks much more appealing with a customized and shortened URL.

 

 

5. Grammarly

This one is actually one of my personal favorite tools, which I use all the time. Grammarly is an online proofreading tool, that instantly checks your text for grammar, punctuation, and style, and offers you corrections when needed. Grammarly saved me many times from publishing a post or sending an email with spelling mistakes since it also catches many mistakes that regular spell checkers usually don’t. Using it on a regular basis can actually make you a better writer. No matter what you are writing, Click on the Grammarly icon and it will go over your text and will correct you if needed.

7. BuiltWith

BuiltWith is a technology profiling tool by definition, but it’s actually a spying tool. BuiltWith allows you to spy on your competitors and see which tools and technologies they are using on their website. I bet you would love to know which advertising channels your competitors are using for online marketing and user acquisition. Well, with BuiltWith you can easily do that. All you need to do is browse to any website, activate the BuiltWith extension, and you get a list of any technology that is being used on that website, including advertising pixels.
