How is Nutshell different?

Nutshell is a fully customizable small business CRM built for outbound sales teams led by a sales manager.

Hubspot is an inbound marketing automation company that also provides a limited free CRM in order to lure users to their more expensive sales and marketing solutions.

Nutshell’s four main advantages over Hubspot are:

  1. Sales analytics and reporting
  2. Live customer support
  3. Email/calendar integrations
  4. Full functionality, with no need for expensive upgrades and add-ons


Nutshell is the best value for the money. The versatility and functionality make it a very easy and powerful product to use.

Nutshell vs. Hubspot, head-to-head

Features reflect Nutshell Pro package


A major selling point for us was Nutshell’s integrations. About 70% of our communication is done through Google Mail, so a seamless integration between our email and our CRM was absolutely critical.

Steven S. VP of Marketing, Bloomerang


Nutshell is extremely reasonably priced for an insanely cool piece of technology that helps our business grow every day.

Beyond the free package [HubSpot] gets expensive quickly, even if you only want to add one or two other features.

I love love love Nutshell!…Very easy to use and I got started in no time. The support is excellent and super friendly as well.

Shane K. CEO, Small’s


There is no standard customer care support [with HubSpot] if you are not a paid customer. There is only the forum, which is not really helpful.
