What is the difference between a FuneralNet site and a My Funeral Site.com web site?
In a couple words complexity and customization. My Funeral Site .com web sites are specially designed for smaller funeral homes with smaller case volumes and/or users who want the power and control of being able to do-it-themselves. If you have special design needs, a large case volume, multiple locations or offer a variety of special services, your needs would probably be better served by a FuneralNet site. A FuneralNet site is also a better option for reflecting a brand or image that you have developed. Ask your representative for a free brochure and demonstration today.
