A Deeper Dive into Upgrading Cremation Purchases

Attendees left last year's conference praising a practical program on a critical subject. So, we invited Marilyn Jones Gould back, and asked her to go even further in sharing solutions to cremation arrangement challenges. Highlights include:

  • See an actual arrangement office with all the helpful tools present.
  • Experience an actual demonstration of what to say for all objections that you hear.
  • Witness how to create the need for more than minimal services.
  • Concrete ways to see the value of each different add-on service.
  • Learn the five touch-points that allow families to understand why a funeral or memorial service is worth the investment.
