Watch out for CRM review scam! If you google 'best CRM reviews' or 'CRM reviews 2016' you will find a number of sites that are operated by SEO professionals. The easiest way to identify those is to look at how they link to CRM software they are reviewing. If all links are direct (for example link to Bitrix24.com is https://bitrix24.com) - the review is probably honest and independent. If, however, there is a redirect or an affiliate link, the review may not independent. Instead those SEO companies are likely to be pushing certain CRM vendors who pay them most money as 'best options'. This is exactly why Bitrix24 CRM, which is used by over 1,000,000 companies is always included among best free or cheap CRM options by independent reviewers. The 'pay to play' reviews on the other hand, avoid including Bitrix24 because our free version has more options than many commercial CRM and we don't have an affiliate program.
How much CRM companies pay per click? The cost is as high as 4 dollars per single click. This means that those companies are probably severely limiting their free plan or that they charge for every CRM user. They many also try hard sell tactics as soon as they get a hold of your contact information. Bitrix24 is different, really different. Our free plan is extremely generous (see below). Commercial Bitrix24 plans are priced per account not per user. Yes, you really can have unlimited CRM users for only 99 dollars a month with Bitrix24.
