LEAN AND FAST
Follow Hook was built by us from the ground up. We needed a lightweight, powerful and relationship focused CRM for WordPress.
The Follow Hook CRM is designed with lean code vs the inefficient inclusion of large PHP functions to only perform small tasks. We only add features which make sense for nurturing relationships with people. No bloat. 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!
Installing Follow Hook is easy!
- First you must update the PRO version of FollowHook if you use that, otherwise continue to step 2.
- From the WordPress dashboard navigate to Plugins > Add New.
- Click ‘Upload’ and then “Choose File.”
- Select the Follow Hook zipped file you downloaded.
- After upload, click ‘Activate.’

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.
