Grave Care Business – July 2017

Grave Care Business owners should understand the power of increasing their businesses and building their client lists during July.

July is a pivotal month for Grave Care Business owners.  It’s important for you to understand the power of July in starting and/or expanding your business.

2017 is flying by.  Six months are down and there are another six months to go before the end of the year.  While the first day of July is a milestone (halfway through the year), the importance of July comes from the fact that your efforts this month will guide your business for the rest of the year.

Grave care maintenance is in full swing right now.  Grave site maintenance (mowing & landscaping), floral placements, and gravestone cleaning are in big demand right now.  However, the end of summer is right around the corner.  Then autumn will follow closely behind.  I have always found that efforts I make in July to develop my client list for end-of-summer services have a big and positive effect in the coming months.   However, I’ve found that if I delay until August, it’s difficult to build the same excitement in a customer base than if I started in July.

I do not know why this seems to be true.  However, it’s something I first noticed many years ago when I was studying marketing and human psychology in school.  I theorize that by mid-July, people are beginning to tire of summer.  However, they don’t realize it yet…it’s subliminal.

Why is this important for Grave Care Business owners?  This is an easy answer.  End-of-summer grave care and Autumn grave care is very important for this business.  There is a lot of money to be made during this time and this is a great time to increase your client base.

The take-away is this: the efforts you make in July will have very positive effects for your business in the coming months and for the rest of the year.  “Don’t delay. Start today.”

The Grave Care Business package is packed with information to help you start and expand your business.  Please let us know if you have any questions.

Cemeteries Face Budget Pressures – Good News For Grave Care Business Owners

Perpetual Care of Buttram CemeteryAll cemeteries are under constant budgetary issues. Starting a Grave Care Business is a win-win solution.

Shrubs need to be trimmed, grass needs to be mowed, and general plot maintenance needs to be undertaken.  Cemeteries, ALL CEMETERIES, require constant upkeep. Likewise, ALL CEMETERIES face budgetary issues.

Cemeteries – low on money

While researching a cemetery in Dayton, Tennessee, I found a newspaper article with pleas from the Perpetual Care Organization (PCO). This cemetery is in dire need of funds. To continue upkeep of their cemetery, the PCO is requesting $40 annually from every family who has members interred there. The newspaper article does not mention the number of different families. However, Find-A-Grave lists over 3,000 burials. Multiply a percentage of this number by $40 and you can see for yourself there is a lot money in cemetery maintenance.

I have been a firm believer, for almost 2 decades, that the answer to this problem lies with private Grave Care Business owners. Grave care business owners take care of plot maintenance, mowing, floral decoration placement (and removal), tombstone cleaning, basic upkeep, cemetery mapping, and many other services. Business owners contact family members with lists of services and they bill those families on an “as-needed” or on a “contractual” basis.

Make money offering Grave Care Services

An independent grave care business owner alleviates the pressure on cemetery management.  By shifting a portion of the workload to the business owner, cemetery management resources are freed up to take care of the larger maintenance items.

Families are relieved too.  When hiring a Grave Care Business, family members can cater and request services based on their needs and desires.  The work is performed to their standards.  They  get personalized care for their loved-one’s grave site.  They are willing to pay good money for these services.

Grave Care – A Rewarding Small Business

Grave care is a rewarding business.  It’s beneficial to cemetery management.  It’s beneficial to families who want the best of care for their loved-one’s grave site.  And, it’s beneficial to the business owner who makes good money providing these services.

Personal Goals Advance Your Business Goals

This blog post is longer than my normal post. Read it through to fully see its importance. I convey the idea that personal goal setting has broad and positive implications in your life. Work toward your goals with positive enthusiastic energy. You will be rewarded.

Grave Care Business

Choose Your Goals Carefully

Personal goals advance your business goals. I’d like to share a perfect example of the way a seemingly unrelated personal goal will greatly advance your business goals.

In January, I outlined my goals for this year. I wrote a blog post briefly discussing the idea of goal setting at the beginning of a new year. I am a strong believer in making goals. WITHOUT A GOAL YOU CANNOT SCORE.

I am a strong believer in writing goals down on paper.
I am a strong believer in writing the reasons behind the goals.
I am a strong believer in plotting courses to achieve the goals.

Writing goals down on paper establishes a physical connection to your goals. The physical act of holding a pen in your hand and writing a goal on paper causes a physical investment on your part. Have you heard the term “you must have skin in the game”? Writing your goals on paper is the first part of having “skin in the game.” The goal is not just a passing thought if you make the effort to write it down.

Second; writing down a REASON for the goal helps you establish a “bigger picture” of the goal. For example; if your goal is to start your own business, you might write down that you want to start your own business to have more money for retirement. The idea of more money for retirement supports your efforts of starting your own business.

Third; plotting a course gives you a direction to travel in attaining your goals. You cannot begin a journey without having an initial course. Likewise, you cannot start a business without an initial business plan or business model. Yes, your course will change and you will make adjustments along the journey but you MUST have a course to travel before you start.

As I shared in an earlier blog posting, my goals for this year included:

1) Do a better job researching and exploring cemeteries.
2) Learn about the culture of cemetery care in every cemetery I visit.
3) Improve my ability to travel so I can visit cemeteries in a wide range of geographic locations.

Anyone who reads this blog and keeps up with my Cemetery Exploration channel on YouTube knows that I love being on the water. As you might have seen in some of my Cemetery Exploration Videos, I use my abilities of sailing, power boating, and kayaking to visit hard to reach cemeteries and cemeteries in foreign lands.

When I developed my goals for this year, I tried to develop a method by which I could increase my skills on the water and put those skills to use in my cemetery research. I did this through education. In the first quarter of this year, I completed a 56 hour licensing course on becoming a ship’s captain. Now, I will admit that a 56 hour course, by itself, does not give me the ability to captain a large vessel. However, having my Captain’s License improves my knowledge and increases my ability to travel on such vessels.

I’m happy to announce that I passed all my exams and I am currently awaiting final paperwork for my Captain’s License.

Here’s the beautiful part:

a friend of a friend who knows I have earned my Captain’s License needs help moving a large sailing vessel from Key West, Florida to Charleston, South Carolina next week. Because of the Captain’s License I earned this year, I have been invited to work as crew during this trip.

Key West Cemetery - Key West FloridaNow, how does this relate to cemetery research? Well, Key West, Florida and Charleston, South Carolina have amazing cemeteries. The cemetery in Key West has hundreds of fantastic tombstones and I will be able to study the care that is given to them under the harsh south Florida sunshine. The innumerable cemeteries of Charleston require special care of their own. Those cemeteries are packed into nooks and crannies of Charleston’s small church yards.

This opportunity of sailing from Key West, Florida to Charleston, South Carolina and having the ability to visit the cemeteries in each of those towns would not have presented itself if I hadn’t been active in advancing my education of driving boats.

The Law of Intended Consequences

When I wrote down my goal to “improve my ability to travel so I can visit cemeteries in a wide range of geographic locations” I looked for a skill that I already possessed (sailing) and thought about how I could use that skill to increase my ability to visit cemeteries. I had no idea earning my Captain’s License would pay such quick dividends. I could not have envisioned that improving a skill I already possessed would allow me to study cemeteries in two fantastic towns within one month of completing the Captain’s License exams. However, I knew that working hard to earn a Captain’s License would present unimagined opportunities. I believe the Universe works that way….I believe when you work hard and put your energy into work that you love, you are rewarded with unforeseen opportunities.

So, I’ll ask YOU:

What are your goals for this year?

Key West - Dead EndJust because it’s not January anymore does not mean your goals are at a Dead End.

Cemetery Sunset – Long Shadows Remind Us To Seize The Day

Hi Everyone:

I finished up my day in a local cemetery just a few minutes ago. The sunset and the long shadows it cast inspired me to rush back to the office to write this quick blog post. The sun sets early here during November. And as the sun creeps ever southward, our shadows gain length over the ground. Autumn is my favorite time of year but, as winter advances, it always makes me think about the goals I set back in January.

What were your New Year’s Resolutions at the start of this year? Have you attained your goals for 2015?

My goal for 2015 was to be a better steward of neglected cemeteries. One of the ways I do this is by researching and writing about methods to cleanup old forgotten cemeteries. Another way I do it is by inspiring people to start their own Grave Care Businesses. It’s nice being able to make money doing something you love.

If you’ve ever thought about starting your own Grave Care Business, there is no better time than right now. There Christmas season is coming up and there are a lot of people who want their family member’s gravesite cleaned up.

My company has developed a professionally produced Grave Care Business Training Course. To learn more, please visit our main web page at the link below. You can order the training course directly through this website. The cost is $249.95 (+S&H) It’s a small price to pay for the huge amount of training guides, business tools, and estimating software.

2015 is almost over but there is still plenty of time to attain your goals for this year. I’ll continue to do my work and promise to try even harder in 2016.

My name is Keith and I am passionate about cemeteries and helping people start their own businesses.

Grave Care Business in Big Demand – Non-Perpetual Care Cemeteries

Non-perpetual Care Cemetery

Heavy undergrowth damages tombstones and grave markers in Atlanta’s Hollywood Cemetery.
Grave Care Business Owners Make Great Money Maintaining Grave Plots

As budget cuts deteriorate the availability of paid workers at perpetual care cemeteries, cemetery management companies are forced to reduce the amount of maintenance performed by their workers. “It takes a lot of time, effort, and money to properly care for large cemeteries” say representatives from GraveCareBusiness.com “We find that cemetery management companies are in a continual struggle to reduce their payroll costs. In some cemeteries, this means the gravesites must be maintained by the families of the interred.” A new niche business idea is growing in popularity that allows entrepreneurs to make money providing grave site services. GraveCareBusiness.com is a website that provides instructions to people who want to start their own Grave Care Businesses. “Grave Care is an ideal business for people who work well by themselves and want to make good money providing grave care for families who can’t do the work themselves.”

Tombstone Damage Cemetery

Non-perpetual care cemeteries are of particular interest to grave care business owners. Family members whose loved-ones are buried in non-perpetual care cemeteries are often willing to pay for services not provided by the cemeteries. “Floral placement, grave stone cleaning, and general plot maintenance are just 3 services provided by many grave care business owners.” The spokesperson for GraveCareBusiness.com emphasizes that most Managed Care Cemeteries normally do a great job of mowing the grass and performing general upkeep but fine detail work is often omitted or underperformed. “We find family members are very willing to pay someone to keep the gravesite up to their standards. Often, an elderly spouse can no longer visit the gravesite and adult children have moved away from home.”

Neglected Cemetery

Charging people money for grave care is a niche business and there is very little competition for these services. Many communities do not have anyone in the area offering the specific service of floral placement, plot maintenance, and tombstone cleaning. There are also other services such as grave sitting and grave stone resetting. “I began this service when an elderly lady I knew asked me to mow the grass around her husband’s grave site. It was a new and exciting business venture. I love exploring old cemeteries and I began making money doing something I loved to do anyway.” GraveCareBusiness.com was founded to help people start their own grave care businesses.

There is a huge demand for grave care services across the nation. Some cemeteries are well maintained but there are a great many large and small cemeteries that are not cared for properly. “We are continually visiting cemeteries where grave plots are unmaintained. Family members will pay good money if someone is just willing to do the work. Starting a Grave Care Business takes a little bit of work. Grave Care is a rewarding business where you are truly helping others and making good money working in the peaceful surrounding of your local cemeteries.”

GraveCareBusiness.com offers a professionally produced Grave Care Business training course to help people start and operate their own successful Grave Care Businesses. For more information, visit their main website: (link below)

Grave Care for Autumn and Winter 2014

autumn_mausoleum_cemetery
Grave Care this autumn will keep your business clients happy.

Grave Care in October, November, and December will make money for your business and keep your grave care clients happy.

Autumn is in full swing and grave care clients are mainly interested in Autumn Cemetery Cleanup, Tombstone Cleaning, Pre-Winterization Services, and Floral Grave Decorations for the upcoming holiday season.

September and October are behind us now and the warm early autumn days are slowly turning to blustery chilly afternoons as the sun dips lower on the horizon and winter approaches steadily. Still, even as the days become shorter, there is plenty of work to do in your local cemetery. We like to think of November as a breathing period before a very busy December making sure family gravesites are fully prepared for the holidays of December.

It is fun leaving a cemetery full of well maintained gravesites.

When families come to visit for the holidays, they are excited to see their loved-ones’ grave plots well cared for and they are able to pay their respects with a clear conscience that they have honored their family’s memories and done their part to maintain the respect their loved-ones deserve.

If you have ever thought about starting a Grave Care Business, our company has produced a comprehensive Grave Care Business Course designed to help you start and grow your own Grave Care Business. We offer 3 course levels and believe you will be very pleased with the amount of information, instruction, tutorials, video training, and business tools.
