This is an interesting conversation that I have all to often with funeral directors all over the country. In one breath funeral directors are talking about how powerful social media is to the tune of overthrowing governments, changing entire generations, aiding in social uprisings, and influencing the most sophisticated elections but in the next breath say social media can’t sell a funeral. Doesn’t make any sense at all.

Social media is ‘marketing.’ It’s not the new marketing, it’s the current state of marketing, and funeral homes and deathcare companies can no longer afford to ignore it. There are so many reasons why deathcare companies need to get their heads out of the sand and start engaging on the platforms used by over 68% of all Americans.
It’s obvious. It’s everywhere. And, yes, it’s sometimes rude. People who own Smartphones constantly pull them out of their pockets to send text messages, check email, read the news, and catch up with their family and friends on social media…even ignoring the family and friends who are there in front of them (I am totally guilty of this). In places where strangers are sitting and waiting, like doctors’ offices and airport terminals, the Smartphone viewing reflex prevails where traditional reading materials like newspapers, books, and magazines once reigned as the media of choice.
