What’s Working So Far in Growing Your Call Volume, Presented by: Welton Hong, Ring Ring Marketing - CLICK HERE to register
It's common knowledge that many funeral home owners and directors are still struggling to understand internet marketing and how to leverage its possibilities. Welton Hong breaks down the fundamentals of online marketing and why certain techniques work better than others, depending on what you want to accomplish. Need to drive at-needs? Search optimization and pay-per-click advertising work wonders. For preneeds, social media is quite effective. For both, you need a website that converts well, a pristine online reputation (driven by review quality and quantity), compatibility with mobile devices and plenty of high-grade content. You also need to be prepared to adjust your plans in tandem with the dynamic nature of online marketing. Funeral homes that stay up to date with the changes (and act on them) have a huge advantage in their local markets.

"IN-PERSON" HOURS SUSPENDED FOR 2019-2020 LICENSING PERIOD

IFDA just received word that the 5 “in-person” hours requirement for Indiana funeral director license renewal has been suspended for the 2019-2020 licensing cycle. https://www.in.gov/pla/funeral.htm

You may now obtain all 10 hours for this licensing cycle via distance learning.
Waiver of Distance Learning Continuing Education Cap: The Indiana State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service has waived 832 IAC 4-1-1(e), removing the maximum hour of continuing education that may be obtained through distance learning. This waiver is set to expire at the end of the public health emergency. A copy of the waiver can be found HERE

IFDA will be presenting numerous opportunities in the coming months to obtain these hours, many hours at no cost to member firms.
IFDA offers deep gratitude to the Governor’s Office, Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, and the State Board of Funeral and Cemetery Service for considering our plea for recognizing the hardship this pandemic has created for the licensed Indiana funeral professional and making this welcomed adjustment to Con-Ed requirements.
