Marketing Chrome Extensions (MUST-HAVE)
Ultimate List of Marketing Chrome Extensions
Are you in need of some marketing Chrome extensions? You might be new to Chrome extensions, or your home extensions tab is a hot mess with them. We asked our marketers and designers to share their most loved Chrome extensions on their web browsers.
Marketing Chrome Extensions 📚 Research
Have you been inspired to create content? When pursuing an idea, it can be helpful to know if people are searching for your idea, if so, how competitive it is. Here are two must-have tools for your marketing research:
Keywords Everywhere is a neat Chrome extension that most bloggers keep below their Google searches. Type any word or phrase into Google, and you’ll see the average monthly search volume, cost per click, competition and a graph of the last 12 months’ search volume.
When brainstorming content ideas, Keywords Everywhere is a fantastic tool to validate the concept and interpret how much competition you’ll have when publishing your article.
While Keywords Everywhere takes care of your Google search inquiries, VidIQ can perform similar tasks on YouTube but it will actively analyse videos you’re watching and even make suggestions whilst uploading content.
Marketing Chrome Extensions ✏️ Copywriting
Copywriting is words that sell. Every marketer needs the gift of the gab. Here are some essential Chrome extensions to ensure your writing is up to scratch.
Grammarly is the all-seeing eye that proofreads all we write as we type it. This marketing Chrome extension can be hidden from your display bar as it works quietly in the background and will highlight any spelling errors in red and makes rephrasing suggestions in blue.
Grammarly has a built-in thesaurus to change up wording you don’t like at the click of a button. Plus, it throws in those commas you forgot 😉
As you probably guessed from the name, Speechify will read aloud anything on your web browser. This can be an article you would rather listen to or the last sentence you wrote in your blog.
Wordtune is a great addition to Grammarly’s writing assistant, which will only provide one writing suggestion. The two work together well for quick and creative writing.
After spending hours on a blog post, you would think a catchy headline would be the least of your worries. The sad truth is – that one line of text can make or break the click-through rate of any article.
Headline Studio is a little pricey, but it will produce a headline like no other, and that can be the thing that separates your content from the rest! Headline Studio is available on the Coschedule website or as a pop-up window from Chrome extensions.
Marketing Chrome Extensions 📁 Organisation
Marketers have A LOT of files to manage. Either you take the time to manage your files correctly or have a hot mess of a desktop screen. Here are some Chrome extensions to make your life easier.
Right-click, Save-image as, Repeat. BORING! Introducing Image Downloader: this marketing Chrome extension will pull every image from a webpage and make all of them available for download with one click.
With Downloads Router you can customise download locations based on file types, file names, or source domains. Take 5 minutes to set rules for all your future downloads, and the router will sort their final destination for you.
A real-world example of this can be seen from our social media team. Each time they download images from Canva for a client, the Downloads Router will recognise the client’s name and place it in the appropriate dropbox folder.
It even has a premium feature to annotate, crop and add emojis in the editor before downloading. This makes the perfect solution to share changes you want with a developer or share projects with prospective clients.
Marketing Chrome Extensions 🖌️ Design
Marketing creatives find inspiration from online content. Here are some tools they use to back engineer the stuff they like.
Have you ever found yourself on a website with a spectacular colour palette and attempted to recreate it? Now you don’t need to guess what the colours are.
Download the Eye Dropper, click ‘pick the colour from webpage’, then click the colour you want. Instantly get the exact colour code to copy-paste into Photoshop or Canva and start creating with your desired colours.
Another Chrome extension for the designers, but this time if you like a website’s font, you can learn their secrets. With Whatfont, you can instantly inspect a website’s fonts by hovering your mouse over them.
Marketing Chrome Extensions 📩 Email
We’re always sending emails, so you might as well make yours stand out! Here are the Chrome extensions to supercharge your Gmail.
Email Tracker for Gmail
Don’t you hate it when someone leaves you on ‘read’ on messenger? Well, let’s transfer that annoyance over to Gmail!
The Gmail Email Tracker puts a little green tick next to all your sent emails so you know who has and hasn’t opened emails. The Chrome extension will even prompt you to send follow-up emails.
Hunter.io is an absolute gem of a marketing Chrome Extension for marketing and sales. Next time you’re on a website and want to contact someone from that organisation, click the wolf icon on your Chrome extensions bar, and he’ll sweep the entire website for email addresses.

Marketing Chrome Extensions 🔗 Links
Similar to our files, our links can also get out of hand. Here are the golden Chrome extensions to keep your links & passwords under control.
If you’ve got a long & cumbersome link, Bitly is the free solution to create short, powerful links and QR Codes and share them with the world. With the Bitly Chrome extension, shortening links has become a swifter and more convenient process.
QR codes are often underrated and underused by marketers, and Bitly is bringing them back into style in a big way. The Bitly extension allows you to create and post QR codes in a few clicks.
Check My Links
The Google algorithm that ranks web pages is a mysterious creature. With roughly 90% of web searches happening through Google, we marketers like to say, “Google giveth & taketh away” every time they move our pages around.
While the big picture of how Google ranks pages is a mystery to the public, one thing the marketers have cracked onto is Google HATES a broken link.
There are helpful websites like Dead Link Checker & Ahrefs that tell you what pages have broken links. The Check My Links Chrome extension will scan the page you’re on and highlight the working ones in green and broken ones in red.
Marketing Chrome Extensions ⏰ Productivity
Every minute counts inside a marketing agency. Here are a couple of Chrome extensions to keep your projects on track.
Toggl is great for productivity, but more importantly, for agencies (like us), we need to keep track of billable hours when working on client projects.
Vimeo Record (or Loom)
The Belgrin office is divided on which is better, the Vimeo Record or Loom extensions for screen recordings. Either way, if words are doing no justice to what you’re trying to say, sometimes the best thing to do is hit the ‘screen record‘ button, explain the problem (or solution you’re offering) and send a link to view that recording.
Vimeo Record is an excellent way to explain any issues you’re having to a web developer, give tutorials on your online products or make pre-recorded presentations to clients.
Both Chrome Extensions allow you to turn your camera and microphone on and off whilst recording.
After that scary discovery, it’s time to freak out and panic because you use that same password for everything.
The good news is that 1Password is here to make all your passwords more obscure than the last with its random password generator and save them all in one convenient location.
OneTab is a great time saver when doing research tasks and can even speed up your overall web browser.
Its top features include deleting your browsing history, clearing cache and cookies, scanning your PC for malware and cleaning up your hard drive.
