Let’s talk about the courses available for the 2020 Funeral Technology and Marketing Workshop Cruise. If you’ve never been on one of our cruises before, you’re definitely in for a treat.
We normally offer up to six credits for your license, but this year we’re doing up to eight credits! Before we get into talking about those credits and what you’re going to walk away with from each workshop, let
Of those seven nights, we actually wake up three mornings and we go into workshops so you’re up and close with your speakers learning about technology and marketing and different things. But, you’re also spending time with funeral professionals and funeral directors from different states. We have some coming from Texas, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, Rhode Island, Canada even! We definitely have a big group coming this year and you’re going to learn from each other as well.
So first up is going to be all about Facebook. We’re going to talk to you about successful posts we’ve seen, and some of the most successful campaigns we’ve seen funeral homes run on Facebook. We’re going to talk about avoiding time-wasters so what have we done as a team and what have we seen out there that doesn’t work and you shouldn’t waste your time doing. I promise you, you’re going to walk away with a ton of ideas to get your Facebook page up to that next level.
The next course is all about bettering the family experience. We don’t just mean
The next course is all about our advice as a Google Partner.
Our next course is all about legalities and protecting your business. So, yes this is one of those technical courses, one of the legal courses, but it’s so important and it actually came from last year’s group. They wanted more information on this because they want to protect their business online with everything changing in technology. So, we’re going to cover things like copyrights, using images online, how to protect your families’ data online, and how to deal with negative reviews when they come in so that one is going to be a really great course.
The next course also came from last year. We had a lot of funeral directors come up and say you know what, I’d really like to see what Royal Caribbean does if
The next workshop is all about technology and marketing, but it’s a round table. So this is just where we open the floor up to everybody. It’s at the end of the week so everyone kind of knows everybody and are comfortable. We’re going to the floor up so you guys can all learn from each other because you’re all in different states, you’re all in different areas. We want to open the floor so you can share what works, what doesn’t work. You can ask questions. This is a favorite in the past and I know it will be next year as well.
We’re going to end with a FrontRunner day. So whether you are a FrontRunner client or not, you are welcome to join us. We’re going to spend some time together and we’re going to talk about all the new releases that have just released from FrontRunner. We’re going to show you those so you’re up to speed and we’re going to take a walk through our most popular software features and show you how to use them best. We’re going to end with what’s coming, so again, a favorite. People want to know what’s around the corner so we’re going to walk you through what is coming from the FrontRunner team.
We hope you’re as excited as we are and we’ll look forward to seeing you all on the boat! There is still some time to book one of the remaining cabins on the 2020 cruise. Space is limited and our exclusive group rate pricing ends on September 30th, so act fast!
