Could you please advise as to best CRM to suit my needs?
I need more of a database management / CRM that isn’t heavily reliant on sales, as we run a casting agency / talent management agency that will have a huge database. Purpose is just for updating the database and using search filters to produce shortlists of customised field answers. As well as email marketing and log interaction with talents, and to have a separate category of corporate clients as well. I can’t decide between Hubspot and Freshsales Free accounts for now. Thank you!
I think hubspot is going to be your best bet but I’m not sure it will have the email capacity that you want. We currently use Active Campaign – you can add different tags to people to make it really easy to sort contacts by different criteria.
It’s a great question Jeanette! HubSpot is probably a better choice if you’re comparing it with Freshsales’ free tier, especially if you’re not looking for advanced sales management features. HubSpot won’t include mass email sending in the free CRM, but does allow you to create lists, and compose, send, and track emails to contacts in your database. It also makes it easy to log things like activities and events, which could be helpful in the situation you described.
