What’s up everyone,
I have been recently working with small non profit organizations to help them set up their tools and workflow. And it’s all about finding the cheapest and most powerful tool.
Salesforce/Microsoft/Google are offering amazing plans for non profits. Most of them are free or almost.
But I’m struggling to find something to create a simple email sequence from a personal email address. Like what does hubspot or other tools like that (email this guy if he doesn’t reply send this email, etc)
I ended up looking at the open source CRM (vTiger, ...). But it feels very technical to get them running, set up everything and maintain. And the feature set is not very clear.
Do you use open source CRM or something similar and what are the Pro and cons?
Or do you know a free or almost free CRM with email sequence?
Thanks a lot
While not exactly a CRM, gmass.co may offer you all of the functionality that you need - and is free for the first 50 emails you send each day (the paid plans are reasonably priced if you do choose to upgrade).
The tool works as a Chrome Extension and integrates natively into your Gmail or Gsuite inbox (unfortunately, this won't work if you're using Outlook, Superhuman, or - I hope not- Yahoo). You can send drip campaigns and sequences, and customize a handful of other items, including mail merge directly from a Google Spreadsheet.
From what I understand, former Google engineers developed Gmass and have prioritized data privacy and security - just something to be weary of with all extensions that you give an incredible amount of access to.
Not sure if it fits your needs/workflow but could be worth a shot!
Most of the free CRM options don't include email features; HubSpot, as you mentioned, has a free CRM, but you pay for the marketing tools to send drip emails and the like. And most of the email-centric tools' free plans cap the number of contacts you can send emails fairly low. Here are some ideas to start though:
Depending on the nonprofit, ActionNetwork.org might fit your needs - it’s designed for political organizations and nonprofits of a progressive bent, but the technology really is phenomenal for the space and very affordable (when last I looked you paid at-cost for their sendgrid costs and that was about it).
They have automations, integrate with Zapier (in addition to others), and their tools are geared towards a lot of nonprofit needs.
So I found hunter.io, it's an email verificator/finder that have a free email sequence tool that seems very basic but very nice.
For my simple case it's fits 100% and it's FREE. It works only with gmail.

This sounds like a question with some obvious answers, but I'd love to hear if you've considered removing work apps on your phone; what held you back? why not? My phone is something that's near me...
