Why would a funeral home need a website?   


Mon, Jan 30th, 2012
Posted in Ask the Expert

I asked myself this question when we were first considering creating a website for our funeral home. At first, the only application I could think of was posting obituaries. The evolution of our website has been exciting to watch. Along with posting obituaries, we now post obituary photos, tribute videos, guest book entries and condolence messages. This service allows those who live far away and would not be able to pay their respects in person to do so online. We have seen condolence messages of family and friends from all over the world. The website also has a list of resources from lodging to floral tributes as well as a lot of other helpful information. Over the years the Hoff Funeral Home website has grown from a handful of visitors a day to as many as over 1000 a day. Feel free to check us out at www.hofffuneral.com
