Karen Zinn, the founder of Heart2Soul.com, says, “We had such an amazing response from industry experts since we launched, we felt it warranted a dedicated section so consumers can understand all of their options. After all, it’s an emotional time and there isn’t a lot of time, or energy, to do the research. Whether planning a funeral or attending one, Heart2Soul can help.”

From learning about funeral traditions and etiquette to creating a community for sharing funeral information, Heart2Soul is a comprehensive resource for everyone.  “Having one place to go when someone dies—whether its someone close to us or a community member—just makes sense,” says Zinn. “Most of us don’t take the time to research and plan for end-of-life celebrations, so the information should be in one place.”

Heart2Soul brings together highly respected experts to provide the most comprehensive funeral resources and information for consumers on the web. Its world-renowned contributors provide a depth and range of information, designed to educate people who are planning a funeral, as well as those who support them.

And unlike other related sites, Heart2Soul is not funded or directed by funeral industry professionals. Its consumer-focused approach brings together experts from all areas of the funeral industry, allowing consumers to make educated choices in a timely manner.

4 Social Media Mistakes Death Care Companies Are Making (and How to Fix Them)

Ryan Thogmartin - August 22, 2017

On one hand, there's always something new to learn and try. However, not everything makes sense when it comes to marketing death care companies. We've watched many funeral organizations lose focus on strategy due to the bright and shiny nature of the new tactics that pop up. Tactics come in all shapes, sizes and value levels. Some are new features that are useful and others can be 'shortcuts' that ultimately lead us in the wrong direction. Recent conversations got us thinking, so we wanted to talk about some social media marketing mistakes we see death care companies make, and how they can fix them.
