By Digital Marketing, Inspiration, Insurance, Social Media, The Web

I was looking through my photos and came across one that I thought was interesting.

We’ve attended a lot of conferences lately, but one of the more interesting things I’ve seen was a sticker chart at a Safeco booth. The idea was simple. Put a 1, 2 or 3 sticker on the board showing how the agency generates new business.
