West Des Moines, Iowa — Homesteaders Life Company, a national leader in preneed funeral funding, has announced the release of the sixth edition of Preneed Motivators. This publication provides information about the demographics, behavior and experiences of people who arrange and fund advance funeral plans.

“We’ve all heard the adage, ‘You can’t manage what you do not measure,’ a phrase that resonates more and more as successful business decisions are increasingly reliant on data-driven insights into consumers’ buying habits,” said Danielle Burmeister, Homesteaders Director-Marketing Communications. “Our newest edition of Preneed Motivators helps funeral providers make informed business decisions based on a detailed understanding of what motivates families to prearrange and – more importantly – how funeral businesses can leverage that information to serve more families.”
