Find your customers and support them back

DISCLOSURE: I do not advertise.  Not in the traditional sense at least.  I also never say know to a request from a policyholder/friend/customer for a sponsorship/support of something they are involved in.

Really neat exhibit and I am fine with seeing State Farm’s name there.  I respect them as a company and think this is a great move.  Why would you not want your logo in a happy place where lots of families are.  Especially since families are a huge piece of your customer base.  But then again you see State Farm almost everywhere.  They probably have customers in every physical space that they put their name.
