I can’t have someone else write this post.

Trust me, some weeks I wish I could! But, I’m the host of the show. The founder of the company. My voice. The Forge3 vibe. The 5,000+ people who read these articles have come to expect me to show up in their inbox.

You see, he already had them! We call it Clickable Coverage. He also had Hello Producer, Video Proposals, Notification Bars, live chat, the client portal and all of the other features in ActiveAgency.
