UK Independent Funeral Directors

Home» Case Studies» SAIF

SAIF is the UK trade association for independent funeral directors and has grown to represent nearly 1,000 members. It works to promote best practice in the industry and provide advice, support and guidance to consumers.

The Challenge

To raise awareness of SAIF within the industry, increase the number of funeral directors who join the trade association and promote the use of independent firms to the wider public. There was also an additional public affairs element to influence government policy.

The Solution

An integrated approach was taken which included PR, social media, SEO, web development, digital advertising and print marketing to promote key messages to relevant stakeholders.

The Outcome

The integrated campaign combined with a strategic rebranding process led to a steady growth in members joining the trade association. Extensive print and broadcast coverage also positioned SAIF as one of the leaders in the industry to both the industry and consumers.

“PLMR Genesis identified the key objectives we were trying to achieve as a trade association, including the challenges we faced, and developed a comprehensive strategy which helped us achieve our goals.”
