What they’re saying…
Of the very positive feedback we’ve received from our local markets on all our product improvements, AdPortal Obituaries ranks “most popular” thing we’ve done with Funeral Homes and The Tributes Section is most popular with our readers. When the Tributes sections comes out, it is amazing how much feedback we get from the local market.
We have a good relationship with iPublish which gave us a comfort level in their ability to support the launch of Tributes in our markets.
Hi, I REALLY like the magazine obits in Sunday’s paper. I hope you keep doing this ever three months. I missed some obits and I was happy to see them so I could send my regards to the families. Thank you.
The Tributes product was well received by funeral directors and families. I didn’t have to be an iPublish Media customer to activate Tributes; I just called my Legacy representative.
Tributes memorial sections are highly profitable with margins as high as 80%. No marketing, sales or up font development costs, paper cost and fee to iPublish are the only costs.
There was no development on our part and the only expenses we incurred other than newsprint was a wholesale fee associated with each Tribute.
