Trying to find the best customer relationship management (CRM) tool for your small business? Nutshell is a top-tier CRM for SMBs. Read on to learn more about it, and start your free trial today.
A CRM is one of the most important tools that any business can have. They help you keep track of your leads and customers in a way no other tool does, and that’s essential for small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) like yours. Without a CRM, you’ll struggle to develop a full understanding of your market.
There are many CRMs out there, but few match Nutshell when it comes to providing a stellar experience for your company. To learn more about how Nutshell’s CRM for SMBs can benefit your business, keep reading.
You may be wondering what it is that makes CRMs so valuable to small businesses. The main reason, as we’ve already indicated, is that CRMs help you get a clearer picture of your audience. They let you view and analyze data about your customers to see what sorts of people buy from you and what they want.
Why is this helpful? Simple—by learning more about your buyers, you can figure out how to more effectively market to them down the road. That helps you drive more successful sales, earning you far more revenue.
On top of that, SMB CRMs are useful for automating various sales tasks, such as email marketing, which frees you up to spend more time on other things. That’s something we’ll touch on again in a moment.
Now that you understand the general benefits of using a CRM for small businesses, let’s talk about Nutshell, specifically. What makes our CRM stand out from the competition? How can it benefit your company?
The perfect blend of function and ease of use! I can’t believe how good Nutshell is!

Switching CRMs doesn’t have to disrupt your business. Our friendly support team will help you import your customer data from spreadsheets or another CRM so you can get up-and-running fast.
Track your total sales from any timeframe and filter down by attributes like product, sales rep, or lead source to see how each segment is contributing to your business.
Give your website visitors a way to contact your sales team or provide feedback. Nutshell’s lead generation forms can be added to your website in just a few clicks.
Engage your email subscribers with beautifully designed newsletters, announcements, and drip sequences. Our powerful filtering tools let you build targeted email audiences in a snap.
See where your clients and prospects are located on an interactive map. For businesses that serve a specific geographic region, Nutshell’s map view is a must-have.
The first reason Nutshell is such a good CRM for SMBs is that it’s exceptionally user-friendly. The dashboard is clean and attractive, the features are all very intuitive, and everything is clearly organized and navigable.
To name one example of this organization in action, we automatically divide your prospects into three separate groups—people, leads, and companies. Each of those groups receives its own tab within the CRM, meaning you can quickly jump between each one.
We also feature a search bar you can use to find prospects using only a name or piece of contact information.
Absolutely amazing customer and product support. I’m in love with Nutshell inside and out.
— Mike C., Chesser Roe
We already mentioned how one of the benefits of using a CRM is that it can automate day-to-day tasks for you. Many CRMs possess that feature, but Nutshell truly goes above and beyond.
There are several different tasks you can automate through Nutshell. As we mentioned previously, email marketing is the best example of this. You can set up emails to send out automatically when users take a particular action.
Additionally, though, you can automate things like lead assignment, team reminders, and tasks related to data gathering and organization.
This frees you to spend more time optimizing other aspects of your company since you don’t have to spend as much time on mundane tasks.
Best out-of-the-box CRM on the planet.

Small business CRMs are all about helping you gather data about your audience. It takes time and effort to make that happen. Now, imagine paying for a CRM, working hard to gather and organize data in it—and then not even bothering to learn anything from that data. It would mean you wasted your time.
That’s why analytics is one thing that it’s crucial to get right. Believe it or not, though, many CRMs don’t really prioritize analytics. They just gather the data and then leave you to analyze it on your own. Not Nutshell, though.
Nutshell offers the ability to create custom reports on just about every sales metric you can think of, allowing you to gain in-depth insights about your customers and your sales. All of those reports can be conveniently found in Nutshell’s “Reports” tab.
By analyzing your customer data, you can figure out exactly how to more effectively market to them and drive more sales.
Actual usability, support, and it makes me money!
— Brian H., Hawes Farms

Small businesses often feel the pain of disorganization as soon as they have multiple sales team members independently working leads—you just can’t keep track of those efforts in a spreadsheet.
Plus, even if your company only has a handful of leads to work each month, storing customer contact information and conversation details in one place is so much easier than hunting through multiple spreadsheets and inboxes anytime you need to find something important.
So: If you have a sales team that’s actively working deals, or a growing database of contacts, it’s time for a CRM. Learn more about the key benefits of CRM software right here.
