Thurman (1912-1994) is known for many things, including his work as a funeral director, and he is also a member of the Georgia chapter of the National Funeral Directors Association. Thurman Funeral Homes is a family-owned and operated funeral home, which has been family operated for over 42 years. They have been serving the communities of Atlanta and Gwinnett County for over 30 years.
Thurman Funeral Homes was recently ranked as the #1 funeral home in Atlanta and #2 funeral home in Georgia. I love being able to say that. Not because I feel superior, but because I feel like I can relax knowing that my friends and family are doing so much better than me. And I’m really glad to be included in that group.
I hate to break this to you, but funerals are for people who have money. If you want to be a part of the funeral and memorial industry, you need to start saving money and get in touch with the right people. We’re not talking about rich people who have a million and a half bucks to spend on a casket. We’re talking about your local casket company making money.
We all die. We all die. We all die. We all die. We all die.
I think it’s okay that you are a part of the funeral industry if you understand that there is profit to be made. That’s what we’re supposed to be doing. We’re not here to make money. We’re here to talk about the next time we die. We’re here to talk to the people that we think died with us. We’re not here to make money.
People who have a million and a half dollars to spend on a casket.
Thurman funeral homes are the same way. They make money by selling a casket. I know this because my cousin, who is a member of the Thurman company, has a large family and they all have a large family casket. They all had to go to the same funeral. We all had to go to the same funeral.
Why is this relevant? Because there is a large, growing number of companies that make a killing by selling caskets. The Thurman funeral homes are those companies’ worst nightmare.
There is such a thing as “bad publicity,” and there is such a thing as “good publicity.” As the New York Times explains, “publicity is the key to successful sales.” A good public image can make or break a company. The same is true of caskets. If you’re the only one who’s seen it, you won’t really care.
In a few years the funeral industry will likely be one of the best-paying industries in the United States. The key to selling caskets is to ensure that they are widely viewed. There are a lot of people out there who are not only interested in viewing the casket, but also in buying it. Folks will be happy to pay much more for a “perfect” casket, but most of them are going to prefer to pay less for the actual casket.
