6 Ways to Get Families to Your Website from Facebook
As a knowledgeable funeral professional, you understand how important it is to connect with families on your Facebook page and funeral home’s website.
Still, despite all your Facebook followers, you’re left with few families visiting your website and missed opportunities to engage with your community.
You need a way to encourage your followers to click over to your website after seeing you on Facebook. You need effective calls to action.
Clear, bold, and focused calls to action will encourage families to visit your website and learn how you can help them in their time of need, explore their preplanning options, and more.
What is a call to action?
A call to action motivates families to make a decision and act on that decision. Calls to action persuade families to take the next step by explaining what benefits the person will receive if they act.
You can use a call to action to ask a family to schedule a preplanning meeting, watch a video, visit your funeral home’s website, and more.
Ultimately, calls to action encourage families to take the next step in interacting with your business. That way, you can keep the conversation going, educate them, and increase your chances of serving them.
But what calls to action get results?
Here are 6 examples you can use to drive traffic from your Facebook page to your funeral home’s website.
Encouraging families to preplan is a main selling point for families to visit your funeral home’s website.
After you’ve explained in your Facebook post what preplanning is and the benefits preplanning can give families, add this call to action to encourage families to visit your website.
