The "Call:" Different things Funeral Directors are doing with Mobits


More and more, we are getting referrals from funeral directors to funeral directors not in their market!

They are getting a lot of positive feedback from families in different ways. Here are three examples:

One funeral director loves the option of the printed funeral program being accessible on the Mobits. They have the printer send them the program as a PDF file and we uploaded on the Mobits.

Not only does the director forward the text message to a family member, they also forward it to a contact involved in conducting the services.

This helps a lot because often the people in charge of the services don't get to see the funeral program until right before the funeral begins.

This helps people involved in the services to know well in advance what the arrangements are so they can be better prepared.

As a result, one director has been able to develop deeper relationships with some of the church leaders in their area because they loved how effective the director was in helping to get everyone prepared for services.

Another funeral director uses the Mobits in conjunction with newspapers obits. They take one line in the newspaper obit to say "For info, text DeceasedName to 72727."

So instead of spending a lot of money for additional lines, they save the family money by using a unique keyword in the newspaper obit to direct everyone to all of the arrangement information.

In some locations, the first 5 or so lines are free, so by including the keyword, they help the family get the word out much more effectively.

One of our directors in the Atlanta area does this usually saving his families a couple of hundred of dollars at least.

There are several features that Mobits offer that either helps the family get the word out or help director get more death calls.

We even have another director that uses the Mobits to manage his cases! He saves each of his cases picture as an icon in a folder on his smartphone. He keeps track of his funeral home from a smartphone, allowing him to be more "semi-retired!"

The more directors use Mobits, the more ways we find to help them and their families!

The “Call” Blog: Obituary for 978 year-old/ What Funeral Directors should look for in a Mobile-app:


We're all human. Mistakes will be made.

The question is how we deal with mistakes.

Here is a newspaper obituary from a few days ago.

Clearly, the woman wasn't born 978 years ago.
With newspapers, any errors are memorialized right along with the departed.

With Mobits, errors are correctable and changes can be made in real time.

Death notification is the best marketing tool available to funeral homes, when used the right way.

Mobits ensure that funeral directors get the most out of death notification as a marketing tool.

Mobits takes advantage of several mobile technologies to get funeral homes in a better position to get death calls.

Here are a few things Mobits have that funeral directors should look for in a mobile-app:

1. Big buttons
2. Limited Options
3. Pictures
4. Few words
5. Limited scrolling

Smartphones are for acting, PCs are for thinking. The easier that funeral directors make it on families to call, the more death calls they will get.

Start the year 2014 off right with a strong mobile presence. It'll get you more death calls!

The "Call:" Funeral Home Mobile-apps for $449 TOTAL! Lowest available, fastest turnaround, No monthly fee!



Take it from someone who's ridden in the front of a hearse!

The best way to get more death calls in 2014 is to use a mobile-app.

Mobile-apps are needed by funeral homes simply because smartphones are very likely to be used to search for funeral homes, to get quick information (phone number, location, pricing & obituaries) on funeral homes, to call funeral homes and to refer other people to funeral homes.

So if your funeral home looks bland and/or unimpressive on a smartphone or other mobile device, chances are some people will think your services will be the same.

Your front door to the world is your mobile-app, it's the first impression most will get of your funeral home. So if you think first impressions mean a lot to your funeral home, then it makes a lot of sense to get a mobile-app.

Here are some of the choices you have for a funeral home mobile-app:

Mobits™ are better because:
1.    We create the mobile-app for you; we don't give you a template and tell you to do it yourself.
2.    We customize the mobile-app to your funeral home, making sure yours does not look identical to other funeral home (All of the other mobile-app providers have just one template, making it very hard to distinguish one funeral home from another).
3.    We provide a text messaging system to get people to your mobile-app. This is very important because you have to give people an easy way to access your mobile-app. With text messaging, people don't have to ever type in your website address to access the mobile-app and it makes it easier for people to forward your mobile-app to others.
4.    We enable funeral homes to put their logo on people's mobile devices, enabling funeral homes to develop more brand loyalty and consequently more death calls.
5.    We provide favicons, the image next to the web address, and start up images on iPhones, again enabling more brand loyalty and more death calls.
6.    We provide the easiest-to-use layout. People don't want to do a lot of reading or to have a lot of choices. Our layouts make it easier for people to get the information they want fast.
7.    We offer the lowest prices and are the only ones to offer no monthly fee. Ever!!

We'll even do a free demo of your funeral home to show you what you'll get before you buy. No one else does that. Call us at 786-763-1875 to get your demo.

If you currently have one of the mobile-app above and wish to upgrade, we'll work something out to reduce the cost of switching over to Mobits™.

Smartphones are now much more important than PCs.

Start the year 2014 off right with a strong mobile presence. It'll get you more death calls!
