As of October 2016, it is estimated that Google Chrome has a 63% worldwide usage share of web browsers as a desktop browser and 50% market share across all platforms combined, is also the most popular browser for smartphones. One driving force behind its massive popularity is the hundreds of thousands of small, free software programs called Chrome Extensions available to enhance the functionality of the Chrome browser. These extensions are similar to apps for your smartphone – and Google has encouraged developers to create them to add all kinds of functions to the Chrome web browser.

There are extensions to help with all sorts of tasks and activities you perform regularly on the web. Extensions to help you develop your content marketing strategy, social media marketing strategy, SEO strategy, and email marketing. Apps to collect social media analytics, identify social influencers, assist in data collection, and preview your website and social media designs.

As digital and internet marketers, there are a number of extensions we use every day that save us a lot of time and assist with repetitive tasks. Here is a breakdown of some of our favorite Chrome browser extensions which my colleagues and I use on a daily basis.

Pablo

Engaging social images in 30 seconds – Pablo is the simplest way to create beautiful images that fit every social network perfectly. Create images with the perfect size and format for Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and even Pinterest. Typography, font sizes, and formatting options make everyone a designer!

Often times, images are the hook that draws more clicks, shares, and favorites on social media. Engagement-grabbing images might be the closest thing we have to a magic wand on social media.

As you browse your favorite sites and hover over images, you will notice a ‘Pablo’ button in the lower right corner. Select this button and the image will automatically be pulled into Pablo and available for editing. Pablo also comes with 1000s of free images courtesy of Unsplash.

AccessURL

Securely share access to websites with colleagues and family without giving away your username and password. AccessURL gives you a secure URL that temporarily gives others access to the website you’re currently signed into. AccessURL encrypts the session data with AES before creating the Access URL. It also lets you set an expiration on Access URLs.

Grammarly

Publishing a post with a spelling mistake is a nightmare for social media managers—and rightly so. While the occasional error happens to everyone from time to time, consistent mistakes can damage your brand’s credibility. Grammarly can help catch them all, including the mistakes that manage to evade the usual red squiggly line: an incorrect verb tense, a missing article before a plural noun, or the misuse of a comma.

The Grammarly extension can catch over 250 types of errors, many of which aren’t typically caught by spellcheckers. Along with catching your mistakes, Grammarly can actually help you write better overall, by offering synonym suggestions in line with the context of what you’re writing.

MORE REMARKABLE CHROME EXTENSIONS FOR CONTENT MARKETING PROFESSIONALS
Content Collection Chrome Extensions
OneTab

Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.

When your tabs are in the OneTab list, you will save up to 95% of memory because you will have reduced the number of tabs open in Google Chrome.

Pocket

When you find something in Chrome that you want to view later, put it in Pocket. It automatically syncs to your phone, tablet or computer so you can view it at any time, even without an internet connection. Not all items of interest warrant a bookmark.
