I got a number of emails today from funeral homes wanting to know how Facebook’s new Graph Search would work. It’s starting to rollout to beta testers so those of you who got on the list should be getting access to the feature soon. I am super excited about the number of funeral homes who are excited about this new feature from Facebook and have reached out to us for social media strategy and management. You realize the substancial impact social will have on your funeral home over the next 3 – 5 years. Welcome to 2013 and the future of your business!

One really cool thing about Graph Search is that the more people who start the use it the more data the search can collect making the search results more robust.

Instead of recording a video on how to use Facebook’s Graph I found a easy to understand tutorial video on Business Insider:

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.

August 31 is International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD)

Ryan Thogmartin - August 21, 2017

Unfortunately, the opioid epidemic isn’t much of a headline anymore. With over 100 overdose-related deaths everyday, we, as a country, have become desensitized to death and drugs. Funeral homes are charged with taking care of the final arrangements for those who have been taken from this earth too soon.
