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:

  • Sales analytics and reporting
  • Live customer support
  • Email/calendar integrations
  • Full functionality, with no need for expensive upgrades and add-ons

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.

The perfect blend of function and ease of use! I can’t believe how good Nutshell is!

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.

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.
