EVERY FUNERAL HOME RECEIVES FIVE PROVEN TACTICS…FREE

The grieving period is a time when people often think ahead to their own future arrangements, and this series marries two important goals: sharing expert support that truly helps people cope with loss, plus offering information about your preneed service.

This in-depth series of supportive videos, stories and articles was developed by Dr. T. David Willets, a certified grief counselor and renowned author of the book and video series Silverlining. Now, you can make this important service available as a FREE gift to each family you serve. The program is easy and automatic for you, and you can feel assured that you are not only helping families, you’re also building goodwill and expanding your preneed sales.

Agent Placement

Across America, funeral directors tell us that finding qualified agents is the most difficult and time-consuming part of preneed sales. But now, you can let The Kilpatrick Group recruit and place top-quality agents for you through a proprietary recruitment process designed exclusively for funeral home preneed sales! Our founders began as hard-working preneed sales counselors, so we know exactly what skills and personality traits are needed. Our front-end due diligence is labor intensive, and it pays off, delivering successful placements time after time. The process includes a specialized series of interviews by phone, then in person. As a third step, we’ve developed a comprehensive “best fit” assessment program to find the one right candidate for each funeral home’s unique needs. Let us take the pain out of recruiting so you can reap the rewards.
