I’m Sorry to Hear Introduces the New Funerals360 Website

February 27, 2017

I’m Sorry to Hear is excited to introduce you to the all new Funerals360. Funerals360 (www.funerals360.com) is the first end-to-end online funeral planning platform where consumers can plan a funeral in advance, at the time of need, or even share funeral details and memorialize the loss of a loved one.

After over 4 years of providing consumers education on funeral related topics and helping them find local funeral providers through ImSorryToHear.com, Funerals360 is the next generation website which encompasses all the same great material consumers have come to love at I’m Sorry to Hear, but in a modern, mobile-friendly website.

Funerals360 features an all new mobile-friendly design and a full reorganization of content to make it easier for site users to find the information that is most meaningful to them.

New at Funerals360 is an interactive Funeral Planning Checklist that can be  saved, edited, and shared with the “planning team.”

Our funeral Vendor Marketplace is larger than ever with coast-to-coast coverage and reviews on local businesses and non-profits including: funeral homes, florists, cemeteries, headstones and monuments, home funeral guides and educators, death doulas, Funeral Consumers Alliances, eye, organ, and body donation organizations, and many more to come.

Visitors can contact Vendors directly through a new Inquiry feature, making it easier to get information directly from the vendors of their choice.

A new Funeral Announcement tool allows members to create a funeral announcement that includes funeral details, making it easy to share critical information with their friends and family via email and social networks.

No matter where you are in the funeral planning cycle, Funerals360 has the tools, information, and resources you need to successfully plan a funeral.

All existing registered members and vendor accounts have been migrated to Funerals360. Existing I’m Sorry to Hear users can access their new Funerals360 account by resetting their password.

Over the coming months we will be redirecting all of our members from I’m Sorry to Hear.com to Funerals360 which will be the primary website moving forward.

Fear, Death, and Pumpkins

NPR logoLast week, I’m Sorry to Hear was featured as the go-to source for at-need funeral planning on NPR’s “The Pulse.” In the hour-long segment, reporters touched on the growing appeal of Death Salons, Death Cafes, and featured “death-tech” companies in the Innovation segment.

The whole broadcast is fascinating. Our interview can be found 19 minutes and 50 seconds in where reporter Todd Bookman toutes I’m Sorry to Hear as the one-stop-shop for families in need of funeral planning tools, advice, and to find funeral vendors across the country.

The whole broadcast can be listened to using the link below:

In October, I’m Sorry to Hear founder, Rachel Zeldin, was also featured as a subject matter expert in the Chicago Tribune article, “Funeral For One” and WHYY’s article, “Funeral Costs Vary in Philly, but Prices Difficult to Compare.” For more media coverage on I’m Sorry to Hear, see our In The News section.
