What's the best direct sales CRM for non-salespeople?

I'm looking to do a lot of direct sales emails for my new product ( and I'm looking for a CRM that's setup to work well with direct sales (cold emailing). Preferably I'd like something that's aimed at someone like me, a developer/designer that doesn't consider himself a salesman, but does sales. Are there any good Direct Sales CRM's that are aimed at non-salesman (devs/designers)? Sounds a bit specific I know, but there's so many CRM's out there I'd thought there'd be one for me.

    Social enterprise platform

    You've got to try Bitrix24. Even though it's free, it has more direct marketing tools than most commercial CRM options. See

    Freshsales CRM

    A full-fledged CRM for high-velocity sales teams.

    I think Freshsales could make a great case for itself here. It is feature-packed and built from ground-up for high-velocity sales. The extremely intuitive UI makes it easy for traditionally non-salespeople to get started with the CRM in a jiffy. The best part - a free 30-day trial and a lifetime free plan for upto 10 agents.
