How much does CRM cost?

CRM can produce a massive return on investment over time, but it’s important for small business sales teams to choose a CRM that’s affordable from the start.

How much does CRM cost?

CRMs are generally priced per user, per month. In other words, you have to multiply the base cost of your CRM by the number of people on your team who will be using it to calculate your total monthly CRM investment.

Most CRM platforms offer a basic package—which include only the essential functions of customer relationship management—as well as one or more full-feature packages, which include advanced capabilities like sales automation and customized reporting.

Here are the starting prices for the 37 top-ranked small business CRMs on the market, based on their full-feature packages (when available). For the purposes of comparison, we chose the CRM packages that were closest to Nutshell Pro in terms of included features, user/data limits, and technical support. (All of Nutshell’s CRM packages offer unlimited contacts, no data caps, and free live support.)
