When I think of a cemetery tour, I think of celebrities. Although a celebrity tour can be a wonderful draw to your cemetery, it is only the tip of the iceberg. Let’s discuss the numerous types of tours you can have and how you can present them to the public. Every cemetery in every community has a story to tell, and today’s technology helps you connect your cemetery and these stories with a much broader community.
The webCemeteries Virtual Tours and Mobile App allow you to quickly publish your tours for online and in-person visitors with photos, videos and stories that you want to share. New tours can be set up in minutes, and our account management team provides strategies for publicizing this content. So, what content should you share?
Tours in nature open up your cemetery to be viewed by the public. Cemeteries are public places, why not provide the visitor with a means to enjoy all of the history and beauty that resides in a cemetery. Tours open up opportunities for future sales, conversation and sharing.
If it is the activity you are looking for, then cemetery tours are the way to go. You will bring college students in for art studies and monument rubbings, birdwatchers admiring birds in their natural habitat, and historians will come by the droves to find their most notable burial targets. Cemeteries are not just for the dead. Cemeteries serve the dead, but they are destinations for the living. The cemetery itself leaves behind a legacy of lives, stories, art and beauty to be shared by all who enter.
