Have You Seen the All-New Digital Dying?

August 2018 Newsletter
Digital Dying Robot Morticians

The all-new Digital Dying offers a fresh take on the trends and issues that are shaping the funeral industry.

If you haven’t looked at our blog, Digital Dying, in a while, you are in for a treat. It’s got an all-new look and a fresh focus. We’ll still bring you our unique perspective on funeral customs past and present, but we’ll also be taking a more vibrant look forward by profiling topics relating to Funerals of the Future and the people that are shaping the direction of the industry. 

Going forward, Digital Dying will dive deeper into topics relating to how the funeral industry is changing, what consumers want when it comes to celebrating the end of life, and how attitudes toward death and dying are changing.

Funeralwise continues to find new ways to help people make the difficult decisions that come with end of life. Our goal is to help you prepare for the inevitable, celebrate life, and remember those who have gone before us.

Since most of us don’t attend funerals often (thank goodness), it can be difficult to decide exactly what to wear. Luckily, we’ve got you covered. Our What to Wear to a Funeral page has lots of good information for you to use or share with someone who might need advice on how to dress for a funeral or memorial service.

We’ve also got a brand new article in our forums that takes a little different approach to the topic with tips on what NOT to wear to a funeral.

Our Forums page is our best-kept secret. It’s packed with planning tips, how-tos, and information on funeral trends. The most underrated section on the forums is our Q&A. Ask us any question (funeral-related, please!), and our team will do their best to get you a practical and right-on-target answer.

To submit a question to our experts, click on the “Ask a Question” button anywhere on our website or use the question bar on the Forums home page.

One of the biggest challenges many of us face when it comes to funerals is the cost. There’s just no way around it: having a funeral is expensive. The good news is there are ways you can save money.

Whether you want to have a traditional burial or a cremation, you can shave a healthy amount off the drive-out cost by taking a hard look at the big-ticket items. Our Funeral Costs page has all the information you need to understand how you can cut costs without compromising on the type of funeral you want.

We get many great comments from the people who use our site, publications, and funeral planners. We welcome the input and want to know more about what you think, what you need, and how we can improve.

Within the next few weeks, we’ll be inviting you to take our feedback survey. The survey will take less than 5 minutes to complete (we promise). We’ll even send you a Starbucks gift card to make it worth your while.

Your opinion is extremely important to us. We hope that when the time comes, you’ll tell us what you think. Thanks!
