December webinar

Social Media for Funeral Home Operators Who Believe They Don't Need Social Media
Wednesday December 4, 2019 @ 1:00 PM

Presenter:  Warren Weeks

Bio: Warren sold his first newspaper to his grandmother at the age of 5, he was Wayne Gretzky’s PR person for a day in 1998 and in 2010, he started the viral social media campaign to get former NHL coach Pat Burns into the Hockey Hall of Fame. For the past 17 years, he has run his own media relations business and helps companies around the world to communicate more effectively. He has worked with companies like Shopify, Manulife, RBC, Gymshark and hundreds of others.

Summary of the webinar:

If you’re going to retire or sell your business within the next two years, you don’t need to be on social media. But for everyone else, having an effective online presence will be an increasingly important marketing imperative in the years for come. In this webinar, we will cover the reasons your business should be using social media, the ROI of social media, the best way to get started, examples of what to do and not to do, specific content ideas for the funeral services business and much more.
