As I travel across the country talking to insurance agents, the question I hear often is, “Can you just give us a couple quick tips on the top things we can do right now to make our agency more profitable and effective?” The answer is, YES! As an authority on insurance technology as well as a consultant and editor, I’ve spent my working career discovering the cool new tools, websites, gizmos and gadgets that can make an agent’s life easier, more productive, and more competitive.

My weekly emailed newsletter — Steve Anderson’s TechTips — highlights one new “thing” each week that just might help your agency increase its productivity and effectiveness: TechTips is short, to the point, and quick to read.

After working with literally hundreds of agencies of every shape and size, I’ve come up with what I believe are the best agency technology resources available anywhere.

I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you that I really appreciate and enjoy your TechTips email. I am not always able to keep up with all of the changes in technology. However, your email really helps me stay aware of what is happening.
