Social media is a powerful tool right now. As we all adjust to the new normal, social media is a great way to share information and have virtual meetups.
For your funeral home, you can use it to help bring your community together. Whether it’s educating or spreading joy, social media can help you accomplish this.
Read on to learn some social media best practices during these challenging times, as well as how we can help!
Tips for Posting to Your Funeral Home’s Social Media Pages During COVID-19
We want to share a few best practices for posting to social media during these trying times:
- Be a resource to your community. Share posts that educate families about how COVID-19 has changed funerals and how your funeral home is adapting.
- Bring your community together. Find creative ways to help people feel less alone, such as with posts that encourage engagement. For example, ask your community their favorite local restaurants for ordering takeout. Or, have people share photos of their pets to make people smile.
- Spread joy and positivity. With so much uncertainty and fear surrounding COVID-19, give families the hope and inspiration that they need. Whether it’s a cute photo of your therapy dog or a reminder that this is temporary, show your families that you’re here to help.
