We have talked about Basic Funerals before and I’m probably going to tick a few of you off by talking about them again, but you better pay attention because they could be coming to your neighborhood next.

Basic Funerals allows families to arrange the way they want: online, over the phone, or in person. They are a licensed funeral provider but they don’t have a stuffy funeral home. Instead they use beautiful non-funeral chapels and locations. And it is working.

They are taking a different approach and are even using that thing called social media to touch the masses. Here is a video they used on Youtube as a small example of how they have changed the normal funeral business model by simply embracing technology and thinking outside of the box.
