The "Call:" Directors - Remember, Websites are for browsers, Mobile-apps are for buyers.


Greetings:

The main reason for funeral homes having a website and/or a mobile-app is to get more first calls. The more first calls a director gets, the more funerals they will conduct, and the more money they will make.

So if your goal is to make more money, then you definitely need, not want, but need a mobile-app.

Three reasons why: 1. Most people first search for local services from smartphones, 2. Most internet traffic now comes from smartphones and 3. Most people will use their smartphone to call a local business or to check it out first.

Translation:  It is highly likely people will use the internet from their smartphone to help them decide whether to call your funeral home first!

Stop right now, pull out your smartphone and go to your website from your smartphone.

Your site, your front door to the world, probably either looks like it's in miniature, or it looks like one of those below.

To keep things simple, below is what Mobits charges to do a mobile-app , compared to some others.

One additional first call could pay for your vitally important front door to the world!

People use websites to browse, mobile-apps to buy.

A person that is buying (making you their first call) doesn't want to do a lot of reading. They don't want to enter a lot of information (funeral homes are notorious with hard to enter and/or extremely long website names).  They don't want a lot of choices. They want images. And they want things big since the screen is small (hand-sized).


Given that behavior, which mobile-app do you think your customers would prefer? Cover the names and the pricing. Then show the smartphones to others and ask which one they prefer. Then look at the pricing. Then decide.

Your "digital" front door to the world is important. It's NOW how most people will first interact with your funeral home.

Call or email if you want custom with the features and benefits that matter the most.
