I posted a link to the Memorial Tribute demo that I use when I approach Funeral Homes in my area to solicit their business in the PSG sample shows and feedback section. I have gotten great comments and advice that I will use. One poster recommended that I post here because I have obtained 3 Funeral Homes using this demo.
It wasn't easy as I may have made it seem. I started trying in 03/08 and had many doors shut in my face. That is when I found out that a lady named *@!$%<& had beat me to it by some years. I didn't even know the service was being offered - I hadn't had the need to attend a funeral in years.
One guy told me he liked mine better than hers but he had to remain loyal to her, another man that uses her told me maybe I should go and work with her, then he actually showed me one she did. It is nothing like mine so I said I would pass. (Mine is better than hers)
- really all she does is have pictures moving in and out and then it just ends, the song just cuts off-no fading.
Although I started pursuing in 08, I didn't get my first FH until 04/09. My feelings were so hurt and I felt so rejected, I focused on doing them for just family and friends, then my brother that I loved so dearly died, all of a sudden in 03/09-he lived in another state. So I decided I really want to give to hurting families what had been given to me-memories of my brother that I can watch on TV using my DVD player.
I sent out flyers to all the FH in my area-(before, I was only approacing my race of people) no particular reason, just hadn't thought to step out in any other direction)- I had seen her work and I knew her price. I undercut her by 25.00 and I also offer 2 customized tissue packs for the family along with the dvd, from about 14 flyers, I received 2 responses and got both jobs. I still expect to receive more responses, I have 3 FH and I kinda want to stay right there for a minute to see how I handle it, then move on from there.
This is my passion, My gift from God. I have also created presentations for the media dept. at my church a wedding and anniversary one.
