DISRUPT Media Announces the Launch of FUNERAL Social

Program Being Rolled Out to Funeral Profession Following Beta Test Phase

DISRUPT Media, the social media strategy and management agency, has announced the introduction of its FUNERAL Social Design Process (FSDP).  The FUNERAL Social Design Process is the only full service media strategy program crafted specifically for the funeral profession.  The introduction follows 36 months of testing with a number of funeral homes throughout the United States.

FSDP is comprised of a collaborative four step process to bring about a funeral home’s success with social media.  The first step is the goal setting stage where realistic, obtainable goals are mutually identified.  This is followed by the STORY session, which uncovers the main components in the stories behind the firm’s social media strategy.  These stories become the platform for what is posted on the firm’s social channels.  After this, the stories are brought to life through the engaging content created by DISRUPT Media which is then posted to the social channels.  Finally, the efforts are tracked and then measured to the social media goals originally identified.

“Families hire professional funeral directors to help manage the death of a loved one.   Why is it that funeral directors don’t hire a professional to help tell the story of the firm in their local community?” states Ryan Thogmartin, president of DISRUPT Media and the architect of Funeral Social.  “Funeral directors need to come to the realization that joining service clubs is no longer the best way to stay engaged with their community.”

The launch of FSDP comes on the heels of a very successful 2014 for DISRUPT Media.  For the year, the marketing agency generated 27 million impressions, created more than 15,600 Facebook Fans, and produced engagements with 121,400 different social users on behalf of DISRUPT Media’s clients.

“For more than four years, DISRUPT Media has been at the forefront of all things related to social media in the funeral service space,” commented Thogmartin.  “Our FUNERAL Social Design Process is the latest offering and we are proud to now bring it to market.”
