MY GRAVE CARE BUSINESS EXPERIENCE
Hi, my name is Keith.
Even as a young boy, I loved going to cemeteries.
The architecture of the tombstones and
mausoleums still intrigues me to-this-day as do the history lessons we
learn by studying tombstone inscriptions. When I was a
young adult, an elderly lady once paid me money to maintain the
grass around her deceased husband's gravesite and take photographs of
the site and surrounding environment. She was not able to visit
the grave site due to her failing health. She was thrilled to know
I was able to care for the gravesite and bring her photographs. It
allowed her to pay respects to her husband and feel closer to him.
From this lady's request (way back in 1992), an idea was formed and a
Grave Tending Business was formed.
Since that time, the grave site maintenance business has grown
plot maintenance, grounds maintenance,
headstone decorating, photography, videography, record keeping,
documentation, and cemetery site surveys (called cemetery demography).
Many entrepreneurs have asked me how they, too, can
start their own Grave Care Business. Because it is such a
rewarding and beneficial business, I have developed a professionally
produced, comprehensive business course showing you how to start and
operate a successful Grave Care Business of your very own.
Owning a Gravesite
Business is a rewarding business.
Providing Gravesite maintenance is financially
rewarding - you can make lots of money.
But it is also a lot of fun. If you find it fun to decorate
gravesites, provide minor plot maintenance, conduct grounds maintenance,
or simply take photographs and videos, we will show you how you can turn
your hobby into a full-time business. Additionally, you are truly
helping people who want to pay special care and respect for their loved one's
There are many services to
offer your clients.
Below are some of MY favorite aspects of owning a Gravesite Business.
You may have different interests and we cover a WIDE variety of services on
which you can focus.
Seasonal plot maintenance, erosion control, mowing, seeding, and
general grounds maintenance.
Floral decorations for
special days (Easter, Christmas, other holidays, birthdays,
anniversaries, family celebrations).
Tombstone and Gravestone
Our instructional video shows you proper grave stone cleaning practices.
Cemetery mapping using
your GPS, Cemetery Research, and Cemetery Photography. Our
instructional video shows you how to use these skills in your
Grave Care Business.
I know at this point you are asking:
"What, exactly, is a Grave
Site Maintenance Business?"
There are many services you can offer with your own
grave site business.
My team and I have developed a professionally produced training course that
shows you how to start and grow your business by offering many different services
to your customers.
In 1992 when the customer (mentioned above) asked
me to care for her husband's grave, I had never heard of Grave
Maintenance. Word got around of my work and people started calling
for estimates. At the beginning, I only offered plot maintenance
(mowing and trimming) but I quickly expanded into other areas:
Headstone and Plot Decoration
Flower Placement on
Special Days for the Deceased
Whole Cemetery Cleanup of
Old or Neglected
Plot Maintenance (grass cutting, trimming, leaf raking, general
Photography and Videography
Research, Documentation, Placement, and Record
Grave Sitting & Message Delivery
Many Other Services Included in the Course
My team and I have developed a guidebook and
training package detailing each of these (and other) services. We also
show you how much money to charge for these services.
ARE YOU READY TO START YOUR OWN GRAVE CARE BUSINESS?
As I am writing this, it is May 2013. The
summer season will be very busy with grave
maintenance, tombstone cleaning, and seasonal grave floral
Simple seasonal decorations and basic plot
maintenance are very profitable during the next several months. Our guidebooks and
video guides cover
decorating, plot maintenance, basic tombstone cleaning, and many other services to offer your customers.
The materials in this business training course will
help you start immediately.
You don't need to waste years of your life trying to learn this business
through trial and error.
We have already done that for you. :-)
