Leverage Rude Smartphone Use to Your Advantage

December 13, 2017

It’s obvious. It’s everywhere. And, yes, it’s sometimes rude. People who own Smartphones constantly pull them out of their pockets to send text messages, check email, read the news, and catch up with their family and friends on social media…even ignoring the family and friends who are there in front of them (I am totally guilty of this). In places where strangers are sitting and waiting, like doctors’ offices and airport terminals, the Smartphone viewing reflex prevails where traditional reading materials like newspapers, books, and magazines once reigned as the media of choice.

Times have changed, and we could waste a lot of time wishing for the simpler and more people friendly days of the past. Or, as business owners, we could work to take advantage of the situation.

Think about these facts:

As you review this information, and you think about your marketing plans for 2018, doesn’t it make sense to capitalize on the Smartphone/Facebook phenomenon? Are you putting way too much money into last century’s methods? Let’s put it in black and white terms: what old-school marketing platform (newspapers, Yellow Pages, billboards, radio or television ads) can compare to a Smartphone in regard to the level of ownership, the portability, and visibility, and the frequency of use? Nothing else comes close. Nothing!

Most funeral business owners are not utilizing 21st century marketing platforms effectively. A very small percentage of funeral homes can point to a Facebook page that is effectively increasing their exposure, positively promoting their brand, and generating productive leads. By capitalizing on the Smartphone habits of most Americans, you can increase your bottom line and get out in front of your slow-to-adapt competitors.

Make sure the Smartphone toting, Facebook reading public is seeing your content appear on their screens multiple times a week, even if they are ignoring everyone and everything around them! Let us show you how.
