FuneralHomes.com Completes Acquisition of DirectCremations.com
FuneralHomes.com, the largest and most trusted funeral home directory in the Unites States, recently announced the completion of their acquisition of DirectCremations.com and their plans for the property. Cremations are currently the fastest growing segment in the $15 billion funeral industry.
FuneralHomes.com will leverage their current infrastructure and platform to roll out a customer-oriented cremation and funeral planning guide. This new planning tool will assist customers in capturing a larger part of the cremation market. Over the years thousands of independent funeral directors have relied on FuneralHomes.com to drive customers searching for a funeral home.
“Every day we link consumers with reputable funeral homes. These exciting new developments will streamline this process considerably. Funeral directors have already indicated they cannot wait to be a part of this service,” said Darren Cleveland, president of Recall Media Group (owners of the FuneralHomes.com network).
“Let’s face it, the current economy has consumers looking for lower cost alternatives to traditional funerals,” added Cleveland. “We believe the cremation segment will continue to grow at astonishing rates. Through this acquisition we are positioning our current and future customers to share in that growth.”
“We have made more progress in the last year than many companies in this industry have in ten, and we expect that trend to continue. We offer a service that is second-to-none and will refer more business to independent funeral homes than anyone this year, just as we have in years past,” remarked Cleveland.
According to Google, recent trends show increased online searching for terms such as cremations, direct cremations, and crematory, thus providing evidence that they are the fastest growing fields in the industry.
Currently it is estimated that approximately 30% of all funerals involve cremation; however, in some markets that trend is approaching 50%, according to data available from the NFDA and ICCFA.
FuneralHomes.com is best known for its services connecting pre- and at-need customers with funeral homes and funeral directors across the country or around the corner. This acquisition will complement FuneralHomes.coms intensive internet marketing program as well as enhance our related network of websites, including FuneralJobs.com, FuneralAdvice.com, FuneralNews.com, and LifeMemory.com.
Unique and innovative, FuneralHomes.com is the leader in connecting Funeral Homes with pre-need and at-need families planning a funeral. Every year millions of consumers use the portal to find reputable, local funeral homes across the country.
