Everdays Fuels Secular Change in Consumer Funeral Behavior

Grieving families take control of their own messaging.

Grieving families are no longer sitting back while someone else dictates the conversation about their loved one. The way our society shares important, life-changing information has changed dramatically in the last few years, especially in the way we talk about death and share news of a loved one’s passing. In the one year since Everdays launched, it has helped empower thousands of families to directly connect with their friends, family, and community.

Everdays is a free, mobile-based platform that allows families to easily share the news of a passing with those who matter most. Families inform their community of a passing and celebrate the life of their loved one with the beautiful and easy to use Everdays Announcement. Families want experts to help steer them through difficult and uncertain territories, especially someone to help share the message of a loved one’s passing. With Everdays, families feel confident and empowered to be their own experts in passing along the news and alerting their community to services and events.

“Families have embraced the Everdays platform at an unprecedented rate,” CEO Mark Alhermizi states. “In fact, now more than 50% of all Everdays Announcements are created directly by families, without a funeral home or director.”

Despite this, deathcare professionals can still maintain their relevance. Funeral directors can claim their home on Everdays and take the lead in creating and curating Announcements for their families. When a director partners with Everdays and initiates the conversation, they become the center of communication for their client families and their community.

“The homes that have partnered with us aren’t just amplifying their presence online and in the community,” Alhermizi explains, “but more importantly, they’re taking the reins and offering more for their client families.”

Families have embraced this change, disrupting the status quo. Funeral professionals will keep themselves valued and current by becoming part of this disruption.
