Chrome is Google’s free web browser, and as you’d expect, it’s very popular. In fact, according to W3Schools.com, Google Chrome had a 73.8% market share in November 2016, up from 67.4% at the same point last year. One of the attractions of using Google Chrome is the fact that users can add extensions to the browser to enhance their individual experience. Domain investors often need to use several specific tools and services every day. Here are five Google Chrome extensions for domainers. WHOIS WHOIS is a service that domain investors typically use on a regular basis. Whether it’s out of curiosity, or whether you’re looking to make an inquiry on a domain name, WHOIS is a vital part of a domainer's day. How do you currently look up WHOIS for domain names you’re visiting? Do you manually type in the WHOIS URL every time? There are two Google Chrome extensions that will give you a quick shortcut from now on. The first is Who.is lookup. It allows you to look up the WHOIS details for the domain name you’re currently visiting at the click of a button. You’ll be directed to the Who.is website, where you can view the WHOIS details. If you’re not a fan of Who.is, perhaps this extension will suit you. It works in exactly the same way as the extension above, but it takes you to a DomainTools.com WHOIS page instead. Domain Auction Metrics If you regularly browse auctions then this free extension may give you further insights into each domain name in your list. After installing this extension, you’ll notice that very little has changed. That is, until you visit an auction website, such as GoDaddy or NameJet, and browse through the listings. This extension will add new details about every domain name in your list. By default, it will show you Domain Authority, Page Authority, and Google Index details, but it can take you a DomCop.com page where you can view more details about the domain in question. I’ve successfully tested this extension on GoDaddy Auctions, NameJet, and SnapNames. Sidekick I’ve blogged several times about Sidekick, which is now a part of Hubspot’s sales platform. It is a paid service, but I find it to be indispensable. Essentially, it allows you to track every single email that you send from your Gmail account. For domain investors, it can be a valuable tool when conducting outbound sales. Using Sidekick, you’ll know exactly when your emails have been opened and how many times they’ve been opened. You’ll often be able to judge whether someone is interested in your domain from how many times they open the email that you sent them, which could mean they are discussing it with colleagues before placing an offer or accepting your price quote. Boomerang Another invaluable tool for your inbox. Boomerang allows you to schedule emails to be sent at a specific time and date. Why would this be of use to domainers? If you’re looking to perform outbound sales on a domain that you own, but you work full time, it can be difficult to successfully send your emails. Sending emails at night will result in less email opens, since your message may get buried in overnight emails. Using Boomerang, you’ll be able to schedule your messages to send at a specific time of the day, when your prospective lead is more likely to be online. Boomerang is a “freemium” service, but the functionality I’ve mentioned above is completely free. The extension can be used to track emails too, which is something that’s available via a subscription. Hunter This is my favorite Chrome extension, and I’ll be writing an article dedicated to this extension at a later date. Hunter is a service that allows you to look up the email addresses associated with any website you visit. It’s an excellent tool to use when you’re performing outbound sales and you’re attempting to find the best email address to contact. It also works well with LinkedIn. Let’s say that you identify that you need to send an email to the CMO of a specific company. You can find them on LinkedIn, and then use the “Hunter” button to have his/her email address pop up. It will save you a lot of time, trust me. Hunter is available for free and offers 150 lookups per month. It offers subscriptions starting at €49 per month for 1,000 lookups, but I haven’t felt the need to upgrade yet.
