Google has given us many amazing tools and features over the years, but none is more underused than the extension. 

Like apps, there are thousands of them that do different things and if you know the right ones to use you can save a lot of time and make your life easier. 

We have compiled a list of the top 5 Google Chrome extensions for small businesses to help you work smarter, not harder.

1. Grammarly

Grammarly has saved me from embarrassment more times than I care to admit.

This free extension will review any text you write while online and shows spelling, and grammatical errors, with a correction. 

Add this free extension and you will never send an email with a misspelt word again!

2. Image Downloader

Have you ever been in a position where you need a photo from a website but it won’t allow you to download it? Image downloader has you covered!

Once clicked the extension will show all the images on a web page available for you to download. Just make sure that if you are using any images for public use you have permission or paid for the copyright!

3. Wordtune 

We love seeing creative copywriting - people with unique styles, opinions, and voices, but with some topics, there are only so many words you can use to say the same thing. 

If you are rewriting a news article or rewording a common topic Wordtune is a must-have extension. 

By selecting any text and clicking the extension, the free tool will offer alternative wording - the same information communicated differently.

4. Team Password

It has never been harder to remember passwords. 

Every site requires different levels of security and when you are working within a team things can get confusing. 

Team Password is a free tool that allows you to have one secure space with all of your team to share passwords.

This extension will save you so much time and make sure you never have to hit that “forgotten password” button again.

5. Influencer Insights for Instagram & YouTube

Working in social media can be hard, at times it feels like there are no measurable results because a lot of strategies focus on brand awareness. 

That’s why having hard data is so important. 

This free extension allows you to look at any Instagram account and see the exact insights of any account. 

This screenshot shows Tesla's Instagram account. We can see from the extension that although they have 9.6 million followers the average likes on their posts is 196k resulting in a 2.1% engagement rate. 

This tool is useful when carrying out competitor analysis, influencer research, and reporting.

Try these extensions out and let us know what you think, and if you need some extra support with your online presence get in touch!
