How to get the most out of ActiveAgency

Notification Bars

Notification Bars are a great way to highlight important information using a colorful bar at the bottom of the website.

For example, let’s say your office is closed for an upcoming holiday. Add a bar to let people know. Or, perhaps there’s a natural disaster on the horizon which will likely result in many claims. Add a bar. Is your office moving locations? Do you have a new coverage option or blog article you’d like to promote? You get the idea.

Or, just have one there all the time with your phone number and button to request a quote!
