2016 Cruise Course Descriptions

Reading the Compass of Today's Consumers and the Changing Funeral Service Market

Instructor: Jules Green, Technology Speciailist, FrontRunner Professional
(1 CEU)

Does today's changing consumer have you scratching your head and spinning your wheels trying to keep up with it all? If yes, this course was designed for you! At FrontRunner, we talk to thousands of funeral homes each year, and through the Book of Memories, we are in touch with literally millions of families. Tap into the knowledge and expertise of the fastest growing technology company on the market, and give your firm the upper hand in taking advantage of trends before they happen, or quickly catch up before it's too late. You'll walk away with a snapshot of today's families and learn what they're looking for from funeral service providers, how their buying habits have evolved, and how you can not only better serve them but truly harness the power of technology to make your firm stand out among the rest.

Mapping Out Your Cremation Strategy: Tips, Tricks & Solutions for Ultimate Success

Instructors: Ashley Montroy, Marketing Director & Jules Green, Technology Specialist, FrontRunner Professional
(1 CEU)

Cremation is on the rise, and we want you to know exactly what to do with it to be more profitable in your business. This session will help you understand the cremation market and changing consumers, what funeral homes are successfully doing with cremation, online and offline, to grow their call volumes and all of the opportunities that come with the new cremation trends. Learn from the creators of FrontRunner's Simpler Times cremation business system, and learn what's working and what's not working from funeral directors across North America. We'll finish the course with a recommended course of action to charter the cremation waters and absolutely dominate your cremation market using technology, marketing and business strategies.

Charting the Course to Your Online Success: The Complete Funeral Home Guide to Search Engine Optimization

Instructor: Ashley Montroy, Marketing Director, FrontRunner Professional
(1.5 CEU)

Do you want to use the power of the Internet to generate more business? We know that answer is yes, and we are here to take you inside the mind of the consumer and show you exactly what they are typing into search engines to find your firm and its services. Centered around search engine optimization (SEO), you'll start with a basic understanding of SEO, you'll work with a list of keywords that are used in your community prepared by the FrontRunner team before we board, and the experts at FrontRunner will show you exactly what you need to do with this powerful information to get more people on your website and at through your doors. A great website is an important first step, but this course will ensure that your great website is not only found, but generating you new business.

Sailing the Seas of The Social Media World: The Complete Funeral Home Guide to Facebook, Pinterest and Other Popular Networks

Instructor: Ashley Montroy, Marketing Director, FrontRunner Professional
(1.5 CEU)

If you're like most funeral professionals, you are a little hesitant on the whole idea of social media for your business. How does a Funeral Home use social media properly? What is required to make it run smoothly? What would I talk about on Facebook? When would I post? These are just a few of the common questions we hear from funeral professionals day-in and day-out. This session will combine your newfound knowledge of today's consumers and what your community is typing into Google to find you with the expertise and ideas of Marketing Director, Ashley Montroy, FrontRunner team members and funeral directors in the room, and help you create your social media marketing strategy. You'll walk away with tips that you won't get anywhere else and a plan that can start the day you arrive back on land, leaving you wondering why you didn't take advantage of the power of social media sooner!

Steering Through the Bad to Get to the Good: Protecting Your Firm From Today's Pitfalls & Changes [PANEL]

Instructors: Ashley Montroy, Jules Green, FrontRunner Professional & Brian Kasler, Division Chair; Director of Continuing Education & Multi State Regulatory Compliance Officer, AAMI
(2 CEU)

New to our annual workshop cruise, we're bringing all FrontRunner & American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service (AAMI) members to the floor to help steer your firm through the changing landscape of our great profession. It's a scary world out there and most funeral homes do not understand how and why things are happening to funeral homes. In fact, most don't even know things are happening, especially in the online world. This session will help your firm connect the dots of funeral service acquisitions, understand legislative changes, acknowledge the pitfalls of technology and how all of these affect your business. You'll walk away with a plan to steer clear of the dangers and reap the rewards of the Internet and other practices. Knowledge is power, and this course is designed to give you the knowledge you need to make powerful business decisions.
