If your funeral home website isn’t offering features such as video sharing and interactive guestbooks, it might be time for a redesign. Take advantage of the latest technology to offer even more services to your clients.


Any business needs a website that engages visitors, provides clear information about its services, and offers an easy way for prospective clients to contact it. A funeral home website also needs to serve current clients with obituary and funeral details, an online guestbook, and other features that allow them to share information and photos.


Your funeral home might have a website that functions as a point of contact for people who are searching online for such services. You may have spent a great deal of time deciding what information you needed to include and how to present your services, or maybe you hired a web designer to set up a website and include the basics you supplied to them. But with the nature of information-sharing on the web today, you need to do much more than present a list of your services. If you haven’t included interactive features for your visitors and current clients, you’re missing out, and so are they.


Perhaps you aren’t very computer savvy or you don’t enjoy the technical side of running your business. You might have no idea how to set up a website, and no interest in learning how to do it. Or you might have enjoyed setting up a site with a pre-designed template, but you’ve used one that’s a bit dated, without the features that your clients have come to expect. You can post obituaries and host a guestbook, but that’s about it.


A company that specializes in funeral home website design will allow you to choose a fully custom website or a layout that you can alter to suit your needs. In either case, you’ll be able to upgrade your site to take advantage of the technological advances in website interactivity.


With the interactive features available on funeral home websites, you can offer your clients a much more personal and lasting experience than ever before. The Tribute Videos you create as part of your services can be uploaded, shared, and viewed for an indefinite period of time. Families and friends can also upload pictures and share them in an online album. You can post obituaries and funeral service details, accompanied by maps to your business and other locations. The guestbook is no longer a place to leave text comments only; visitors may post audio and video messages, as well. You’ll create a lasting impression by making your funeral home website a place where your clients can interact and share meaningful tribute videos, photos, and comments.
