Follow Hook was built by us from the ground up. We needed a lightweight, powerful and relationship focused CRM for WordPress.

If you’re after lean and powerful email marketing, text marketing and CRM functions under one hood, you’ve found the right plugin!

You’ll be delighted at the lean, featured-packed addition Follow Hook CRM adds to your website and your customer strategy!

FAQ

Is Follow Hook really free?

Absolutely. Follow Hook is a fully functional CRM that allows you to manually enter leads, auto enter them via opt-in forms, create custom fields, organize people via groups, and create touchpoints for easy reminders!

What About GDPR?

Great question! We have GDPR tools built in so you can record the legal reason for contact entry (this is automated with opt-in forms), and also create pages on your site to allow people to manage their communication preferences, which is also a requirement of GDPR law.

Is the Pro Add-On Pricey?

No. It’s crazy cheap! We defy the norm with our single pro add-on. For a single price you receive all pro features vs the pay-for-each-extension method which ends up costing a ton of money. Read more about Follow Hook Pro and take your contact management to the next level!

Does Follow Hook Offer Email Automation?

The pro add-on includes email marketing automation via syncing with ConvertKit or Mailchimp! We also have Constant Contact and extended internal email support on the roadmap.

Can I Do Text Marketing?

With the pro add-on you can sync with Project Broadcast, one of the most user-friendly, affordable and supported text marketing platforms in existence! We’re excited to be the FIRST WordPress plugin to sync with Project Broadcast.

Do You Offer Support?

We offer basic documentation for Follow Hook Free. With the pro add-on we offer support in our private support forum, along with online training at Follow Hook University.

Theater Eleven Pictures is an indie film company and we're using Follow Hook on our upcoming feature film website (Paradise Strikes) and our main production company site. It's solid, uncluttered and the pro version allows sync with ConvertKit with is insane. We don't need the crap other CRMs load in. We just needed a way to gather data on people and communicate with them via email and text marketing. You have to get the pro copy for automation, but it doesn't cost much. Cool! Thanks for the sweet plugin.

I needed an uncomplicated CRM that would allow my customers to capture opt-in data from their sites. Follow Hook does this beautifully. Plus I can setup custom fields and map opt-in data to them, along with auto grouping at opt-in. All in the free version! Thank you!

Follow Hook delivers an organized snapshot of every potential customer that connects with us through our website. It's created a better workflow for our sales team and efficiently helps us prioritize a quick response. I like that I can get support from the creators of the plugin, and that they’re on top of fixes and enhancements. If your goal for a CRM is nurturing customer relationships, I’d recommend checking this one out.
