The eyes of many of our clients do seem to glaze over a little when we mention Blogs, RSS feeds and âShare Thisâ social media links. They are nevertheless growing in importance in many sectors, including insurance.
Creating Web Enthusiasts
Nearly 12 years ago The Bureau was founded by Alastair Murray. Not a long time by some standards, but almost ancient by internet timescales. Insurance People invited him to relate The Bureau story â yesterday and today. Twelve years ago the internet was in its infancy. Slow 56k dial-up modems were the norm. Remember?
Video Full Stream Ahead
