SOCIAL MEDIA IN A FUNERAL HOME?

SOCIAL MEDIA IN A FUNERAL HOME?


”Tag, you’re it!”

“Tag me!”
“Let’s take a selfie”
“Friend me”

Are you on social media?

WE ARE! Technology is moving faster than me typing these words.
Did you know that people are getting a college degree in Social Media Marketing?
We at Baker/Hazel & Snider are on board. We tweet, we pin, we tag, we share, we swipe…

We think it is so important to be relevant to what is going on in the clouds. Yes, we serve an older generation, but more importantly we care for the whole family. We want all of our families to be relevant in their loved one’s end of life planning. Families are split up and live all over the world. So here at our funeral home, we want people to know that even though you can’t be right here physically, you are here and we are connected to you.

We have a google account, facebook page, a pinterest account, a twitter. We take photos and share them.

How many of you google the company’s name before you try their food, or buy their clothes, or use their services? MOST EVERYONE! How many of you moms read reviews on Amazon before buying that new double stroller for your two young ones? I DO.

“Seventy-two percent of Millennials research and shop their options online before going to a store or the mall.” –www.cmo.com

How many of you give your email address out more than my cell phone number. – I DO


My point?
I wouldn’t use a company if they didn’t have an up-to-date website, or a Facebook account.


We need transparency.
