next-generation tools, this partnership presents a unique strategy for funeral homes in the 21st century.

SEATTLE, WA (March 4, 2011) ? Online funeral home and cemetery directory company

iMortuary.com is teaming up with preneed marketing company afpHORIZON to market a new line of

services for the death care industry. Both companies focus on innovative strategies to expand the

presence of funeral homes?whether it is online or traditional marketing outreach. Together, they will

reach a wider audience and provide funeral homes with more options for growing their businesses.

Funeral homes traditionally fall into two main categories: traditional family-owned establishments

that forge strong ties to the local community, and those owned by large, national corporations. Local,

independent establishments need access to innovative and new programs so they can keep pace with

the trends and changes of the funeral industry?especially when it comes to marketing opportunities

both online and in the preneed funeral planning arena.

The partnership between iMortuary.com and afpHORIZON is designed to provide just that type of

service. With an online audience of over 150,000 consumers per month, iMortuary.com has mastered

the social media market and found a way to engage the online consumer. afpHORIZON, which

currently services hundreds of funeral homes nationwide, offers a depth of marketing expertise

underpinned by key executives? experience as funeral directors, funeral home owners, and insurance

executives.

Together, the two companies will develop and deliver transformational Internet marketing solutions

that meet the needs of their affiliated funeral homes.

?We will be launching a powerful Internet marketing package for funeral homes,? says Minda Brusse,

Principal at iMortuary.com. The proposed package includes featured directory positioning, unlimited

pre-screened online leads, and an SEO (?search engine optimization?) Scorecard & Report, among

other elements. Funeral homes and cemeteries already affiliated with afpHORIZON will be the first to

benefit.

Funeral homes and cemeteries are ready to adopt new technologies. With this new partnership,

a large portion of the industry stands to benefit?especially independent funeral homes and the

customers who rely on them during their time of need.

?iMortuary reaches more consumers each month than almost any other funeral home directory,? adds

Terry Woodall, President of afpHORIZON. ?Our exclusive partnership with iMortuary becomes a big

advantage to funeral homes that work with us.?
