Creating a funeral home website design that is simple, intuitive, and interactive will set you apart from the competitor down the street.

 

Partnering with a professional company that has experience with funeral home websites is key to creating a website design that is sharp in appearance, yet easy for client families to navigate. Using a company that solely concentrates on the funeral profession can provide a high-quality product that has been tested by hundreds of others.

 

The basic components that are a must in every funeral home website are:

  • Obituaries
  • Online Tribute Videos
  • Online arrangement form
  • Online guestbook
  • Contact page
  • Resource page
  • Social media integration

Enhancing a website with other interactive options such as memorial, visitation, service, and cemetery information also is a good idea. The more online information a funeral home can provide to families and friends of the deceased, the better.

 

Other features some funeral homes are selecting are:

  • Single or album photo upload
  • Preplanning module
  • Obituary notification system
  • Virtual showroom
  • Preplanning information
  • Content management system
  • Community events calendar
  • Map and directions
  • Contact form

Selecting the most fitting modules for your website will greatly impact the overall design of the funeral home’s website; however, it’s extremely important to find a total solutions provider. Not only should a funeral home website design company create a great website, but they should also be able to register a domain, set up email, ensure search engine optimization, and provide statistical reports.
