Let’s transform the funeral industry

Funeral Product Gallery

TheFuneralSite.com's new Product Gallery will help transform the funeral industry

That’s what I’m up to here at TheFuneralSite.com, transforming the funeral industry.

We want to see the industry open up so that people have more information and choice when it comes to funeral planning.

TheFuneralSite.com has the best objective funeral planning information on the web and is now building the Product Gallery to provide more information and to help other funeral businesses grow.

In the three years that I’ve been working in the funeral industry I’ve seen many small funeral businesses fold. They typically are a mom and pop working from home, making urns or caskets to sell to the funeral homes or to the public.  Unless they find a a couple of funeral homes willing to sell their product these small businesses fail within a year.

We want to help these small independent businesses survive against the truly monolithic funeral industry.  And are doing so with a new feature on www.thefuneralsite.com called the Product Gallery. We will pack the Product Gallery with as many funeral related businesses as possible. The obvious companies like casket and urn companies, but also service companies like ash scattering airplane pilots, butterfly release companies, DNA storage companies…..

Why? Because having as many businesses as possible in the Product Gallery moves us closer to our goal of transforming the funeral industry.

The more beautiful and diverse products we have in the Product Gallery, the more traffic we get, and therefore, the more leads we send to vendors in the Product Gallery. The more successful these businesses are in connecting with customers, the more the funeral industry will have to open up to businesses not necessarily partnered with funeral homes and, as a result, people will have more information and choice when funeral planning. Easy peezy!

I care. I want people to love the Product Gallery.  This model is a win – win for everyone.

Together we can transform the funeral industry.  – AC

  3. My Experience as a funeral director has led me to advocate consumer choices. The funeral planning section of your sight is one of the best out there. You honestly present all the options to folks in various cities around the country.
