October ended with Halloween. We hope everyone had a good time handing out treats to all the monsters and goblins. Is it just me or does it seem costumes have taken a turn away from the traditional scary themes? I’m seeing more “sultry nurse” and “Pimp n’ Ho” costumes. Oh well.
Although October is a month when the “spookiness” of cemeteries is on people’s minds, November is a month when Grave Care Business owners should begin focusing on building their client lists and making a lot of money for the winter months ahead.
In many, the first of November signifies the laying on of wreaths in conjunction with All Saints’ Day. I have just completed a cemetery research trip to Northern Spain. Laying on of wreaths is a very important ceremony there. I believe this ceremony is catching on and becoming popular in the United States.
It is true that some grave care activities slow down a bit for winter. However, we have found that there are several activities that will carry you through the winter months. By starting your grave care business right now, you will be able to begin building a strong client base.
There are a few services we like to focus on during November and December. Pre-winter plot maintenance, gravestone cleaning, and preparation for winter-time decorations should be tops on your list. Offer these to your prospective clients and you will be busy (and making money) for most of the winter months.
If you have ever thought about starting your own grave care business, November is a perfect month to get started and begin building your client list. In our Grave Care Business Course, we spend a lot of time teaching you how to properly build a strong client base. We also teach you how much money to charge for your services. The estimating software is a great tool to help you calculate your prices.
