Two Things You May Not Know About Funeral Webcasts

Funeral webcasting enables family and friends to take part in their loved one's funeral or memorial service despite illness, finances, or distance.  It gives mourners who can't travel the opportunity to watch the service live, just like they were there or watch it later at their convenience. 

Recently improved technologies and less expensive broadband, paired with deployments of the military oversees have all lead to an increase in the use of funeral webcasting.  Now survivors who cannot attend a service in person are not just limited to sending sympathy cards and funeral flowers, they too can have closure.

Funeral webcasting offers friends and family members the ability to virtually attend a funeral regardless of their circumstances or their location.  Through funeral webcasting, the bereaved can view a memorial at anytime, anywhere in the world, in the privacy of their home.  Additionally, a webcast can be viewed live or delayed for each individual’s preference and needs.
Here are two things you may not have known about funeral webcasting:

1.  Your Client Families Will Want to Webcast
As the world’s demand for technology grows, people are becoming more connected, are online more frequently and up-to-date with the latest inventions and capabilities available.  The demand is there for more interactive, social, online experiences – in every facet of life, even death.  More and more families are requesting funeral webcasting from their funeral directors – being prepared to provide that service means never having to tell a family they can’t have something they want.

2. Funeral Webcasting is Easy and it Makes Sense
Funeral software puts the power of customization into the hands of the funeral director.  Having video tribute software and webcasting software all-in-one to create a complete, customized theme using the latest technology makes good business sense and good financial sense.  No outsourcing, or third parties to deal with no long-term contracts, no upfront costs, no equipment to buy and no support fees.  With a simple pay as you go system, its affordable and profitable.  No matter what your user level is, you can begin webcasting with a simple video package including HD camera, tripod, wireless microphone and a USB video capture device.

Taking your funeral services online using funeral webcasting software, a funeral home can not only help families, but also increase their business.  This value added service basically goes straight to increasing your bottom line – a good decision and an excellent service offering.  It’s a win-win for your client families and your business.

After the service, the funeral director may keep the video on his website for a specified period of time. Some funeral webcasts are available for viewing for as long as a year after the service. In other cases, the family or funeral director may decide to make videos available for shorter periods, such as three to six months.  Each returning visit to your website puts the name of your funeral home in front of your client families – again and again.
