Our newest sponsor is a newcomer to the industry and is just starting to make a name for themselves:

TheFuneralSite.com helps people research and plan funerals.  It also helps funeral homes develop leads for their services.

There are three guiding principles at work on TheFuneralSite.com:

Make it Personal
The company is founded on the belief that funerals are important rituals that should reflect the individual life of both the survivors and the deceased. 

Explore Options
The era of cookie-cutter funerals is over.  In response to consumer demand, the funeral industry now provides thousands of options for memorializing a life.  TheFuneralSite.com strives to provide information on all of these options.

Find Providers
Two directories help consumers find providers of funeral services and products. The “Find a Funeral Home” directory is a list of nearly every funeral home in America. Consumers can search by city for funeral homes.  Consumers can also conduct an “Advanced Search” to identify funeral homes that meet their particular search criteria. For example, consumers can search for a funeral home in Toledo, Ohio, with reception capabilities for 100 guests, video recording capabilities and a piano.  Search results will display the featured funeral homes that match the search criteria.

They also offer two distinct ways for funeral homes and product makers to reach their site visitors: 

Featured Funeral Homes
Become one by purchasing a featured listing. Featured funeral homes appear at the top of the search results in a highlighted box.  Featured funeral homes also receive a full page description, photos and a link to their website.

Find Funeral Products/Services
A directory of every conceivable funeral product or service the public could purchase on-line.  Companies must purchase a listing to be included in this directory.

TheFuneralSite.com launched in October 2007 at the National Funeral Directors Association convention in Las Vegas.  The founding partners are David Johnson and Anna Copley.
