It’s more important than ever to develop a strategic plan to ensure that your business remains profitable as the cremation rate increases.
That’s why funeral professionals throughout the country are signing up to attend the second annual Cremation Strategies Conference, Nov. 7, at the Charleston Marriott in Charleston, S.C. At the conference, you’ll build a strategic plan to keep your business strong, even as your customers change.
You’ll walk away from the conference knowing:
- Strategies to price cremation to boost market share and boost profits.
- Steps to enforce proper procedures that help you avoid lawsuits.
- Ways to effectively and efficiently market your business.
- Tips on handling price shoppers on the phone and in person.
- Insights on pet cremation, alkaline hydrolysis and more.
These experts will share proven strategies to boost business operations when serving families that choose cremation:
Poul Lemasters, a licensed funeral director, lawyer and owner of Lemasters Consulting, delivers guidance on how to start out on the right path when serving families who choose cremation. Before you can even think about growing market share, you need to protect the business you’ve already built by following procedures that keep you out of trouble.
