Surpasses 1 Million Monthly Unique Visitors through Build-Out of the Tributes Online Obituary Distribution Network
BOSTON, MA — September 20, 2010 — Tributes, Inc., the online resource for local and national obituary news, announced on the 2nd anniversary of the official launch of its flagship site, Tributes.com, that the increasingly popular web destination, coupled with its growing network of media partners, now regularly supplies more than 1 million unique consumers per month with reliable access to obituary news. The Company's strong traffic performance has been fueled primarily by increased brand awareness through its expanding channel of funeral home partners along with the 100+ television stations that make up the Tributes Network and feature Tributes-powered obituary sections on their websites. In addition to individual station deals, Tributes has also established broad relationships with a number of television groups including Local TV LLC, Scripps, Belo and Allbritton Communications.
The Tributes Network is the only assemblage of broadband media in the country focused solely on the distribution of obituary news. Tributes credits its rapid penetration to its turnkey solution which allows television as well as radio stations and city portals to quickly launch customized, monetizable, high quality obituary content on their websites with no up-front costs. The Tributes sales team then works on behalf of each partner to develop and manage funeral home channel relationships in their local market.
"Tributes is able to provide funeral homes and their families a one-of-a-kind online distribution offering to communicate to extended family and friends about the death of a loved one," said Elaine Haney, President of Tributes, Inc. "The Tributes.com national footprint coupled with the regional reach of its network of media partners provides a much needed alternative to traditional print obituaries which are both limiting and costly."
Tributes recently signed an agreement with Ancestry.com to assist in the development of the family history leader's Obituary Collection, providing consumers engaged in family history research with access to Tributes' growing database of obituary records.
