It is amazing how often funeral topics are discussed on Twitter. There is a huge opportunity that exists on Twitter for funeral professionals and industry suppliers to answer questions Twitter users have about funerals and the funeral process. I’m not going to get into this idea fully, it deserves its own article, but if you are curious go to search.twitter.com and type in the search term “Funeral”. You will be presented with a list of all the tweets that include the word “funeral”. Ok, now on to the point of this article.

One of the many cool things about Twitter is “Trending Topics” these are; word(s), Phrase, or topic that is tweeted multiple times (usually millions). A trending topic is generally proceeded by a # (hashtag). When a word appears with a # before it, the topic is linked to a list of all the tweets the contain the hashtag topic.

Last week a very popular trending topics was #ThingsNotToDoDuringAFuneral (Things Not to Do During a Funeral). It was amazing to me how many people were willing to talk (tweet) about this topic. It seems like when this profession is portrayed in a “light” or not so gloomy way, people are willing to talk about it. Maybe there is a lesson to learn from this when it comes to marketing your funeral home, and I think it definitely solidifies that the consumer is ready to start engaging with funeral homes and directors through social media.
