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.

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

Non-perpetual Care 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 Business – A Low Competition, Niche Business

 

Grave care is a low competition niche business.

I remember a business strategy class I took in college.  The instructor continually maintained that competition is good.  While I agreed with him on the basic factors of the need for competition, in the back of my head I was always thinking: “yes, but a monopoly is better.”

Why is competition good?  Competition breeds innovation.  Competition draws on synergy to create public awareness about a product.

Why is a monopoly better?  Especially for an entrepreneur in a niche business, dominance in a particular product or service allows the entrepreneur to focus on product development, service delivery, and customer relationships.

Some competition is good.  However, in most communities we have visited and studied across the United States (and some of Europe) there is very little competition to this business.  Look around your area.  Can you find anyone offering grave care services?

If you have ever thought about offering Grave Care Services, now is an excellent time to start.  Be the first (or one of the first) in your community to offer grave care services.  Being one of the first gives you a special opportunity to dominate your market segment and quickly build your client base.

We have developed a Grave Care Business course that will help you start and operate a successful Grave Care Business.

Grave Care Maintenance for Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is one of the best weekends of the year for anyone involved in the Grave Care Maintenance Business.

Hi Everyone.  I hope you are all having a great spring and that your Grave Care Business  is going great guns so far this year.

I just want to take a couple minutes to jump on here to remind you that Mother’s Day is this weekend (May 05, 2010).  Mother’s Day is one of the best weekends of the year for anyone involved in the Grave Care Maintenance Business. 

Spring is a time of heavy grass growth.  If you are performing plot maintenance for your customers, this is a perfect weekend to acquire new customers and add addition services to your current customers’ contracts.  Also many people want decorations placed at their Mother’s grave site so it looks good all weekend, especially on Sunday.  Your floral supplier should be able to stock you with plenty of decoration for your customers.  Also, remember to speak with your floral suppliers on Monday.  Many of them will be left with excess inventory that they will sell you at a great discount.  You can pass the savings along to your customers next week.

As you are attracting new customers this weekend, don’t neglect to speak with them about yearly contracts and your package deals for holidays.

What is your experience shopping for Father’s Day?

Whether your experience is fun (because your Dad is easy to shop for) or hard (because he already has everything he needs and he’s not hip to new things) you know how good it feels when he truly appreciates what you have bought (or done) for him.

Father’s Day Gifts and Services

In my family, we often perform services for one another instead of buying the latest gadget at a department store that won’t be used anyway and ends up being a waste of money.  Services for Fathers day used to include mowing the lawn or giving him a day alone just to watch sports on TV.  He always appreciated quiet time.  I even remember one year as gift to my Father I installed a shower head that had awaited installation for 6 months.  Sometimes the services were a big hit and it was always a great feeling knowing I had given him something he truly cherished.

Grave Care is the Perfect Gift

Around the country this year there are millions of families who have lost their Fathers.  Though their Fathers have passed on, they can still buy a perfect Father’s Day present.

If you have read our Grave Care Business Program you already know the importance of special days for your customers.  Father’s Day is a perfect example of a time when you can advertise special services and promotions for your business.  Don’t lose sight of the fact that grounds maintenance, photography, and Father’s Day Card (message delivery) services are very much in demand for Father’s Day.  Your Grave Care Maintenance customers may not be aware that you offer these services.  Elderly spouses may not be able to physically visit their husband’s gravesite.  Younger family members may have moved away and are not able to visit the gravesite nearly as much as they wish.  These are the customers you need to cater to.  They are the ones truly in need of your services.

No Excuses

So, you’ve decided to start your own grave care business.

Grave Care Business – No Excuse Not To Start Now

So, you’ve decided to start your own grave care business.  You’ve decided to start your own grave care business during the worst economic recession in our lifetime.  Gas prices remain at historic highs and financial lending institutions hold iron fists over money loans that were so easy to qualify for only 12 months ago.

Now, some entrepreneurs have marched into business ownership in easy times – times of economic stability when money flowed easily and all you needed to do was perform satisfactory service to be successful. Other entrepreneurs have received their business licenses in times of trial and upheaval, when the very foundations of our small-business economy has been shaken. 

It should be clear by now the category into which all of you fall.

For many small-business entrepreneurs starting their own businesses, these challenges are felt in more personal terms. Perhaps you are starting a grave care business because you have given up looking for a job – or you’re struggling in a failing career path in this struggling economy. Maybe you have a job but you need extra money to help with unexpected bills or credit card debts.  Maybe you have always been intrigued with cemeteries and gravestones and you want to explore your fascination while making a nice income.  Maybe you just want a better life for yourself – a life where you can be the boss and dictate your own destiny – a destiny where you can expect more than just a 9 to 5 and a paycheck every two weeks.

In the face of our current economic challenges, it may be tempting to fall back on a typical work path.  You may find yourself saying “why bother” and continuing with the same day-in day-out unfulfilling job just like your friends do and your parents (or children) expect you to follow..

You can take that road and it may work for you. But at this difficult time, that approach won’t get you where you want to go in your life.  You have an entrepreneurial spirit.  It can’t be taken away from you. And no amount of outside influence should keep you from your goal of starting your own business and creating your own destiny.

The businesses we revere and the business leaders we admire didn’t sit back and wait for a perfect economy.  They didn’t twiddle their thumbs awaiting a gold-lettered invitation to join the entrepreneurial class.  They didn’t let naysayers influence them to give up on their dreams just so they could become another hourly employee working for a faceless corporation making money – and making a destiny – for someone else instead of themselves.

Many of our current challenges are unprecedented. There are no standard remedies, or go-to fixes this time around.  But, like those you admire, you should not let the obvious obstacles of today’s world block your path. 

Yours is the great American story – the story of starting a business in uncertain times – the story of taking your life and your destiny in your own hands when so many around you are drowning in self-pity and despair.

So now, it is abundantly clear that you need to take your direction and start doing things a little differently. In your own life, you need to adapt to this continuously changing economy,  keep gaining new skills, and keep taking risks as new opportunities arise.

I know starting a new business in troubled times is a challenge. But it is also a privilege and it is the greatest opportunity you may ever have.  Times like these that force us to try harder, work smarter, to discover paths we never knew existed.   Greatness lies within you. So don’t ever shy away from your entrepreneurial spirit.  I can promise that you will be forever better if you take the small steps now to start a business of which you’ve always dreamed.
