Content and media is key for bringing new clients to your funeral home. You want to make sure that you are offering the latest options for funeral planning and services. One of the services you may have considered, but currently do not offer, is a live video streaming service. If you aren't sure how this would actually benefit your funeral business, consider the following four key points.
Distance is not an Issue
One of the reasons someone may choose a specific funeral home is due to location and how many of their family and friends could attend the funeral easily. If you sign-on with live streaming services providers, you can offer the live cast of the funeral for anyone regardless of location. This means that the distance from family and friends is no longer an issue for your potential clients.
When you choose to sign-on with a high-quality live streaming service provider you can ensure security for yourself and for clients that may be using the live stream services. One of the key points that many providers offer is the ability to add a secure passcode for your clients to enter in order to view the funeral service. You can also have it streamed over secure networks as well. This not only secures the funeral service from being seen by strangers, it also offers you a level of online security.
On Demand Options
There are some cases when your client may want the funeral service, graveside service, and wake available whenever their family or friends is available to view it. They want an on demand option and you can offer that with live streaming services. Not only will the services be viewable in real-time, they will also be viewable when family and friends have time to access the streams.
One benefit that you may not consider with live streaming services is the ability to offer memorial video and options to your client for family and friends. This is an ideal service to have on your services menu if you want to offer a little more than the average funeral home. Memorial videos can consist of a memorial video of the client's life, tributes from family and loved ones, or any number of media arrangements. Having this option on your services can increase your business to not only traditional funeral planning clients, but also those considering a cremation option as well.
These are just a few of the benefits available to funeral homes who consider using live streaming video providers to increase their service options. If you want to discuss the options and benefits you could gain for your funeral home, contact a service provider today.
