Beyond Indigo Announces Social Media Division

image Beyond Indigo, the creators of 365 Days of Grief Support and Light a Candle, are proud to announce our Social Media division. Since its inception, Beyond Indigo has harnessed the power of the Internet to bridge connections and use resources in valuable and exciting ways. Beyond Indigo has integrated the established power of social media into our websites to provide our clients and customers with greater value and more marketing potential.

There is literally no over-estimating the importance of social media. It elects Presidents, supports causes, sells products and can make a super star from an unknown almost overnight. Every aspect of our lives has the potential to be influenced by sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Facebook has become one of the best ways for potential customers to find the services they’re looking for. If you’re not on Facebook, you’re missing the chance to reach out to millions of people, and they are people who want what you have to offer. The great thing about Facebook is that it’s free. And, for the foreseeable future, it’s going to stay free. Setting up a Facebook page can be tricky.

Beyond Indigo created the industry-leading tools Light a Candle and 365 Days of Grief Support. Don’t be fooled by imitation sites and companies. Beyond Indigo is known for its innovative spirit. It has had the vision to anticipate the needs of the funeral industry and the people it serves since 1997. This same expertise and foresight is now being used to approach the social media. Our experts have industry experience and technical knowledge that gives our clients a competitive edge with ideas for content that drive traffic.

Unlike some other companies, Beyond Indigo gives you straight talk and offers proven techniques to guide you and generate traffic. Dawn Fisher, funeral home owner and marketing expert, offers tips on how to gather fans, attract business and create the very best Facebook page for your business. Marie Slayton, a transplant from one of the world’s largest social networks, builds pages and guides clients. Fisher’s tips and ideas have added about 50 fans per WEEK! She brings a unique vision to the process because she is a funeral director herself.

Beyond Indigo is leading the industry by embedding links to add obituaries directly to social media sites like Twitter and Facebook. With a single click, customers can have an obituary added to their Facebook accounts thereby using a free service to share the obit with everyone in their network. The same is true for Twitter.
