Your Internet Connection
IFP can help member firms develop an internet site, and can provide valuable guidance to avoid pitfalls that other firms have discovered.
Research and Development
Market research is important in today's competitive business climate, but only if it is accompanied by a plan that works. IFP understands the funeral market, and can provide members with helpful Business Plans, Integrated Marketing Plans, and much more. We don't stop with the information—we can help our members implement action plans to succeed.
Information Source—On YOUR Side
At IFP, we analyze the trends in merchandise presentation, personalization, cremation preferences, and we study the programs that suppliers are trying to sell. In many cases, our marketing experts have been instrumental in developing parts of these industry-wide programs, and we can guide you to the ones that work, and tell you why. Our dedication is to the success of our member firms and improving funeral service to the public. Therefore, we are free to consult with our members honestly, and only suggest that which is in their best interest.
A Unique Approach, IFP
Supports Other Organizations!
IFP firms are often leaders in state and national organizations. Those associations serve a different purpose than IFP. By nature, they must lobby for all of funeral firms—small, large, independent, corporate, even direct competitors. We do not duplicate their efforts, but focus on our selected members. We do take sides in the local competitive market and help our members lead. But since we recognize the value of other organizations, we encourage our membership to take an active part. We provide a dues credit for members who also support their state organization.
