Thoughts on websites, digital marketing, web tech and how it impacts the insurance industry. And a few personal stories, too. 😄
Based on the results of our survey, and just in time for the Elevate Conference in New Orleans this weekend (stop by and see us if you’ll be there!), I’m thrilled to announce that…
ActiveAgency will soon include Video Proposals! 🎉
Clickable Coverage is an impressive and effective sales tool to help focus insurance prospects on the right coverage instead of merely looking at the cost of the policy.
We already have dozens of graphics in the collection, but today we’re adding another. Raise a glass, because Winery is #28!
My name is Monika Baraket and I am the not-so-new Chief Production Officer here at Forge3. In fact, I’ve been around for over 8 years! Read More
I love technology. You should, too.
It’s the one thing we can all use to get an advantage.
It makes us more efficient. It saves us money. It allows us to reach more people.
Technology should also play a pretty big part in creating an awesome customer experience.
But, that doesn’t mean it replaces the human touch. People should always be what makes us and the experience we’re all trying to create (with the help of technology) special and memorable.
Here’s one little example… Read More
Clickable Coverage is one of the best ways to get prospects to understand the value of having the right coverage. Coverage first, then premium!
Better yet, it’s beautifully integrated into our ActiveAgency website platform.
Today, we’re adding graphic #27 to the collection!
This one is for Child Care Center.
It’s a very cool (and proven effective) way to get prospects to understand the value of having the right coverage. Coverage first, then premium.
So, we have three more graphics coming…starting with School!
Test drive it below. Read More
That’s right. I said it. What’s the ROI of your mom?
What’s the ROI of your business cards?
What’s the ROI of the sign outside your office?
What’s the ROI of those pens you got printed with your logo?
What’s the ROI of the clothes you’re wearing to make a great first impression?
What’s the ROI? Period. Read More
I got to try out that fancy new mic I got a few weeks ago!

If you’re reading this, chances are you already know a bit about what we do here at Forge3. In a nutshell, we spend our days helping insurance agencies understand, embrace and use the power of websites, digital marketing and other technology.
But did you know that we didn’t always focus exclusively on the insurance industry? Read More
If you’ve ever seen the movie ‘The Internship’ you’d probably agree with me that Google looks like the coolest place on earth to work. Nap pods. Slides instead of stairs. In house café and dry cleaning. Team building games and challenges.
While nap pods in an insurance agency are not realistic and slides instead of stairs probably have you screaming “LIABILITY HAZARD!” there’s something to take away from this: they’re doing something right with creating a positive culture.
I can’t tell you how many articles I’ve seen about how to attract millennials. But the truth is, the changes being made in the workplace are attractive to anyone in the workforce—avocado-toast-obsessed millennials or not! So while this article may be focused on the secret to snagging a millennial’s attention, it can really be applied to attracting talent across the board.

Well, here comes Hurricane Florence.
I don’t care if it’s a hurricane, earthquake, flood, fender bender or something else.
When bad stuff happens, it’s time for your agency to shine.
It’s also when having technology on your side is a BIG advantage. Let’s use Hurricane Florence as an example. Read More
I test drove a Tesla Model X last week.
My dad wanted to try it. And, since I was visiting him and my mom in Florida, I went along for the ride.

If you haven’t felt speed like that, add it to your bucket list. Seriously. It’s Ludicrous!
Here’s my dad behind the wheel. Notice anything strange? Read More
