About Mike Hepburn
An advantage that we feel we have over any other Digital Marketing Agency offering services to Funeral Homes, is the experience that Mike Hepburn has with the profession. He has over 29 years of experience working in, and around the funeral profession.
It all started in 1992, at his family’s funeral home located in Gananoque, Ontario, Canada. It was a small Funeral Home run by his brother-in-law. Mike was commissioned to do many tasks around the funeral home including:
- Washing the vehicles
- Working the Donation Desk
- Managing the Visitation with the family
- Driving the lead car on funerals
- and many, many pick-ups
This continued until 1998 when FrontRunner Professional (FRP) was founded by Mike and his brother-in-law. FRP offered websites to funeral homes at a time that many funeral home owners/managers didn’t believe they needed a website. Mike was the lead on sales and customer relations and connected with a great deal of individuals who were funeral home owners/managers to funeral profession suppliers. FRP continued to grow very rapidly, mainly through their partnership with Matthews International. Before long, FRP had over 20 full-time employees with a few of them being family members of Mike’s.
After leaving FRP in 2013, FuneralTech was born. With all of the relationships created over the years it didn’t take long for FuneralTech to become very successful in offering Funeral Home Management Software and Funeral Home websites. In 2016. Mike made a decision to sell his interest in FuneralTech and start his own a Digital Marketing Company called YourSocialStrategy.com, when he saw the immense need for an affordable option for small to medium business in the digital marketing realm.
Fast forward to today, and we’re so excited to be offering FuneralClicks.com. Bringing all of the knowledge we’ve gained over the years working with funeral homes, and pairing it with our digital marketing skills – FuneralClicks is truly a one stop shop for funeral home and cremation providers.
