    Hey I've been searching around for a CRM autoresponder (mainly for email marketing) but have found that Infusionsoft and Salesforce are way too expensive for my budget at the moment. I've looked up other alternatives like Pipedrive, etc... but... I wanted to see what some Fastlaners could recommend.

    I've heard good things about Zoho CRM though I've never used it.

    Go with http://www.suitecrm.com

    It's open source, does all the same tricks. Still can't wrap my head around why people are paying thousands to companies like Salesforce. SuiteCRM does a lot, I don't know how strong it is for email marketing though. But you're best finding a solution on CodeCanyon in addition to installing SuiteCRM.

    We attempted to use SugarCRM years ago and it didn't work out for us. As it's popularity dwindled, we found our CRM lacking some features and integrations that were standard elsewhere. Hopefully SuiteCRM has the sticking power this time around.

    I'm doing the same research and I've been hearing good things about hubspot's free CRM.

    There are some great options around for sure.

    open source Mautic.org, my guys have contributed a couple of pieces.

    This is more of an automated marketing platform than a true CRM, but it links to several open source CRM packages as well.

    I have found a lot of people want automated marketing when they are asking for CRM.

    If you are looking for cost affordable software, try Apptivo CRM. It's quite good.

    Whether you're looking for a robust CRM software solution, a simple one designed for very small businesses or a free version to fit your budget, there's a CRM software choice for you. Another one is Zoho mail. Zoho CRM offers users lots of functionality at a competitive price point. While the customization options aren't as extensive as some other CRMs we reviewed.

    Hubspot is free and pretty decent.

    Pipedrive is very affordable and not bad either.

    I've heard good things about zoho as well.

    Have heard infusionsoft called confusionsoft before by people I regard as rather skilled technically so won't be going there.
