Will Writing. A simple new revenue stream?

An increasing number of funeral service organisations are selling Wills alongside funeral plans. Gone are the days of passing this work over to Solicitors and Will Writers, these companies are now bringing the service in house.

Will writing, made simple.

As people look to organise their affairs by purchasing funeral plans, they may like to arrange their Wills too. Who better to help new and existing customers than the businesses that already know and serve them?

Not only this, but you are potentially sitting on a goldmine of data for those that already have plans with you. This is an opportunity to market to them – to continue a regular dialogue with your clients whilst enhancing engagement with them and their families.

Helping families protect their loved ones

With funeral plans, you are helping clients plan and relieve stress in what would be a very emotional time. Having a Will in place is part of the pre-death planning process and is just as important for the family when a loved one passes on  

There are two ways in which we can facilitate this revenue stream for you. Firstly, you can offer an Online Wills solution – a hands free approach to Will drafting. Secondly, you can write the Wills in-house using software that guides you as you draft.  

Both options are simple, inexpensive ways to expand your portfolio with documents costing as little as £5 each to produce. 

Option 1: Online Wills Software

This software offers a hands-free, effortless solution for you and your clients. It’s perfect for anyone with straightforward estate planning requirements who typically want a modern and secure solution that saves them thousands of pounds in fees for their uncomplicated requirements. Simply email them a link and they can complete their Will online for a nominated fee. 

Option 2: Will Writing Software

This software empowers Funeral Directors to deliver more comprehensive Wills for clients who have more complex needs. Its questionnaire style format has mandatory fields built in and a dual screen layout, to make drafting simple. It’s used by Accountants, Mortgage Advisors and Will Writers alike and could make a profitable addition to a business looking to expand their service portfolio.
