The below is a very insightful infographic that was put together mu MySendOff.com. This infographic is jam packed with very useful facts, many of the facts are almost commonsense, but to see the actually figures is eye opening. For example, I think it is very interesting that 68% of funeral directors say that social media has impacted their business, but very few funeral homes are actually embracing social media. Did you know that 78% of baby boomers are regularly online? Did you know that 1 baby boomer passes away every 49.5 seconds? Look at the inforgraphic below for more facts like this.

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.
