The "Call:" Your Arrangement and Selection Rooms should always stay open to families


People prefer to buy what they see. This may be obvious, but a lot of funeral homes seem to ignore this fact.

And people prefer the "easy" way over the "hard" way. Many funeral homes miss the boat on this as well.

Families doing business with funeral homes have two unique challenges: first, they must make decisions fast (usually within 1 to 3 days) and second, the decisions they make often involve multiple family members.

The easier you make it on families to see and buy your services, the more cases you will close.

A mobile-app with an Arrangement Room and a Selection Room makes it easier for families to see your products and to buy your products.

Families want information first hand and fast. Each person wants to see your products for themselves.

And when families are ready to buy, you want to make it convenient for them to do so.

We set up funeral homes' mobile apps so that it is easy to see your packages, caskets, urns and vaults. And we make it easier for families to purchase your services by giving them the ability to buy your services as a package or individual items right from a mobile phone.

Suppose you're talking arrangements with a family, either in person or over-the-phone, and they don't sign and pay right then and there. In that situation, you could say "If you need more time to make your decision, I want you to know that all of our packages, caskets and vaults can be seen from mobile phones. And once you decide to use our services, payments may also be done from your or anyone else's mobile phone.

To view our offerings from the convenience of a mobile phone, just use the internet browser on your mobile phone to go to our website or text the word 'Bowman' to 72727.

If anyone not here needs to be involved in the arrangements, they too, can use our mobile app to view selections.

And if you have more questions, just tap your phone to call us. At Bowman and Young, we want to make this difficult process as easy on your family as possible."

If you are competing with another funeral home in situation that doesn't have these conveniences, or dealing with a shopper, don't you think your chances of securing the case would be much better?

The more you keep families focused on your funeral home's products and services, the more business you will get.

To see this in action, take a look at Bowman Young Funeral Chapel in Dayton, OH. Here is a link to use from your mobile phone, http://bit.ly//1igMSPz. Or text 'Bowman' to 72727.

The "Call": Want more cases right now? Then put your “Selection Room” and “Arrangement Room” in families’ mobile phones!


Greetings:

Mobits can get you more cases and first calls right now. Here's how:

Mobits can now put your "Selection Room" and "Arrangement Room" right on family member's mobile phones. Family members anywhere can use the mobile-app, Selection Rooms and Arrangement Rooms to view and purchase funeral and cremation packages, caskets, urns, vaults, flowers and gifts.

Families in the process of choosing a funeral home are often heavily influenced by people not in the room with the funeral director. In effect, funeral directors often must 'sell' people they don't even see.

Mobits funeral home mobile-apps give progressive funeral directors a distinct advantage over the competition in this situation. It allows you, the director, to close more families by taking your Selection Room and your Arrangement Room to each family member's mobile phone.

So, if you don't close the family at your funeral home, you can still close the family at their home with your mobile app! 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Using your mobile phone, take a look at Bowman Young Funeral Chapel in Dayton, OH. Here is a link to use from your mobile phone, http://bit.ly/1igMSPz. Or go to www.bowmanyoung.com on your mobile phone.

Mr. Young now has the ability to have families check out all of his packages, caskets, urns and vaults on their mobile phones.

Families can buy from their mobile phones. If one family member wants to buy the casket and another wants to buy the package, they can do so right from their mobile phones.

His mobile app solves a lot of problems for him and makes him much more competitive. He is simply able to provide better service because all that he offers is easily accessible at all times from any mobile phone.

If you ever deal with shoppers, and/or if you do arrangements at families' homes, you'll close more cases with a mobile-app that has your arrangement and selection rooms.

And we'll even do this: If you sign on by March 31st to do a mobile-app with the "Arrangement Room" and "Selection Room," we'll set you apart from your competitors by giving you exclusivity for 12 months over a 20-mile radius!

This means we won't sign up any other funeral homes in your immediate area, giving you ample opportunity to create a distinct advantage over your competition.

This offer is good for one week only! So if you want to get on board, please call 786-763-1875.

The "Call:" Funeral homes should design their mobile websites for younger people and their PC websites for older people.


Many funeral homes have built a solid business over the years through reputation.

As a result, some funeral homes have developed close relationships with families and churches that generate repeat business.

Yet we all know death is very emotional, and if everything isn't just right, some families will take future business elsewhere.

The point is building and sustaining a funeral business strictly on reputation is risky because so much emotion is involved.

Progressive directors recognize this and look elsewhere for new business. And most look to the web.

The web is an excellent source for new business, and how the funeral home is presented on the web is very important.

By and large, most funeral homes do a poor job of attracting new business from the web. 

Why? Because their sites are often:
1.    Too small in print.
2.    Too gloomy/boring (poor selection of colors and backgrounds, lack of 'happy' people images).
3.    Too complex (too many things to click on all over the screen).

In short, most funeral sites are "TMI," too much information.

The majority of funeral business sourced from the internet will come from mobile devices.  And the majority of funeral business sourced from the internet coming from PCs, will tend to be people over 50 years old.

Therefore, the mobile website needs to be designed for younger people and the PC website needs to be designed for older people. Mobits is the only company that does this!

Most funeral homes come to Mobits.org doing about 100 cases a year, or two a week.  Our strategy and technology quickly gets them to four or five a week.

We are successful because we understand the profile, emotions and motives of people visiting funeral homes on the web.

People want information and answers fast. People don't want to get lost or bored on the funeral home site, mobile or PC version. And when people are ready to talk, they want the phone number readily available.

Besides, what's the most important thing a funeral home website should do?

The "Call:" The time has come for funeral 'selfie' etiquette

Monday, March 3, 2014

The "Call:" Director gets over 30 emails and 1,575 pageviews from a single Mobits in just a day!


Our newest client, Sampson Funeral Service out of Brooklyn, NY, gave us a case to do a Mobits early Saturday (March 1st). We got it back to him on Saturday at 3:30pm.

At 8pm Saturday, he texted me saying he had over 30 emails from people submitting condolences from their mobile phones.

On Sunday (March 2nd) at about 8pm, I checked the analytics on the case and found that person's Mobits had been viewed 1,575 times!!

So from 3:30pm on Saturday to 8pm on Sunday, that Mobits got 30 emails and counting, and 1,575 pageviews and counting, and the funeral isn't until this Saturday (March 8th)!

Don't believe it? Numbers don't lie. Look at the graph and judge for yourself.

If you want to look at that specific Mobits, text "BWade" to 72727.

It is virtually impossible to get results of this magnitude from a standard website or from an obituary posted on a "mobilized" website.

The reason is this was done by text messaging.

His circle of friends and family forwarded the Mobits text message to each other and it went viral from there.

And every time someone viewed the Mobits, they saw big and bold, Sampson Funeral Service.

Death notification is your number one marketing opportunity and Mobits is the best tool for funeral homes to capitalize on that opportunity.

So for $49, Ernie (we're on a first name basis now!) got over 30 new contacts, promoted his funeral home over 1,500 times and still has a week of promotion left.

Mobits is not a funeral director. It's a marketing director for funeral directors.

So if you want more cases, get the best marketing director available, Mobits!
