So, let’s dig deeper into this and understand why Pipedrive can essentially be the best CRM for your business.
Pipedrive is Cost Effective
How much does Pipedrive cost?
Comparing Pipedrive with other leading CRMs such as Salesforce, Copper, or even HubSpot, we see that Pipedrive is quite strategically priced.
It’s neither too costly nor free. It’s just the right value for your dollars.
You can choose any one of the four plans that Pipedrive has to offer –
- The Essential Plan

The Essential plan starts at USD 12.50 per user, per month, billed annually. You can have access to a free 45 days trial and see all the features live in action before committing.
Very Visual and Intuitive
It won’t be an exaggeration if we claim that Pipedrive is one of the most visual and intuitive CRMs ever.
New deals are easy to create and you can easily manage the deals at various stages of their lifecycle using the board view.
Sales is extremely visual with Pipedrive. You get unlimited, customizable pipelines and have the option to slide deals from one stage to another.
Thus, tracking deals is extremely easy with Pipedrive – and this is one of the major advantages that salespeople get with Pipedrive.
No need to spend time updating the status of various deals, simply add deals, their value, win probability and expected close date, and keep tracking them through the various pipeline stages.
And yes, if you have too many deals and can’t keep track of which deals are going cold, Pipedrive gives you the colored deal rotting cues that show when deals are going cold so you know what demands immediate attention. Isn’t that cool enough?
Tracking Communications Has Never Been Easier
Pipedrive allows users to keep a track of all the calls, emails and contact history exactly where they need to.
This is probably one of the most essential features of any CRM and with Pipedrive, you get complete visibility and control of your schedule in terms of which calls to make, which emails to send, which follow-ups to do and so on.
And yes, once you are done uploading or importing your contacts in Pipedrive, you can link them with deals.
Plus, you can also have a look at the visual history of all your calls, emails and activities with any particular contact any time you want.
Isn’t this super amazing because it’s always suggested to see the last conversations before following up because you don’t want to look stupid, right?
