Case Study: Brennan-Mathena - Topeka, KS

See All

Brennan-Mathena Funeral Services has been serving the families in the Topeka area since 1916.

With an ethos based on giving the utmost care and compassion, along with providing guidance on pre-planning, Brennan-Mathena were very excited about the prospect of being able to have a comprehensive guide to their services, which would be readily available for their families to access.

With years of experience on the effects of grief and the additional stress that can be placed on grieving families when planning a funeral at the time of need, they wanted a way in which they could promote their Pre-Need and Pre-Planning services.

How We Helped

After having a meeting with one of our venue coordinators, the provision of a Funeral Planning Guide, at no – cost to them was put forward. We were happy to welcome Brennan - Mathena to our product, namely a personalised brochure, filled with essential information that would give their potential service users a guide to the services available from them. Whilst also acknowledging the role that the home plays within their community.

The end product was a comprehensive guide, which covers the services provided by the funeral home, together with a choice selection of sponsors that will complement such services.

A few words from our client

A few Words From Our Client

“It is my pleasure to give you a testimonial about the services you provided to my firm.  I was fortunate to be selected as a privately owned funeral home in our area to represent our company in the community with other businesses that were selected by our firm.  The pre-need booklet that was provided is exceptionally well done and all advertisers were handled in a very professional way.  The books were very thorough in all aspects of pre-arrangement.  The advertisers selected provided a nice range of extended services that may be needed by our families on a pre-need or at-need basis and were all receptive to the idea on inclusion in this book.  I would highly recommend this company to any funeral home who is trying to enhance their pre-need program.”

We primarily use the planners for pre-need, as this suits our needs the best. The fact that we can provide this product to our families at no cost to us is the "icing on the cake"."

At first I was skeptical about whether or not we should consider Partner Plus Media and the idea of a magazine for our business. A funeral home friend and colleague highly recommended that we give it serious consideration, so I took the plunge. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. The magazine reflects who we are as a business in a very professional way. We were able to customize it to our liking and the process was simple and straight forward. An added bonus is that we have great business partners in the publication. Some of them are old friends, but others are people that are in the community that have become important new advocates. This has become a valuable resource in how we market our business and present ourselves. I enthusiastically recommend Partner Plus Media to anyone considering working with them.

We are very happy with the professionalism of Partner Plus Media, and the high quality product they produce. The opportunity to customize the guide with local area photographs, and photographs of our staff was a huge benefit. Our clients love them, and stop in at the funeral home just to pick up a planning guide for a family member or friend. Our pre-need representative gives them to every client he meets with. We believe that the guide represents our business well, and is a worthwhile marketing vehicle for the businesses who chose to advertise in it. We look forward to continuing our relationship with Partner Plus Media.

We have been with Partner Plus for about 4 years, and we love it. Families, businesses, Hospices, and churches appreciate the resourceful booklets. They are beautifully designed and professional. Partner Plus does all the legwork to contact local companies for advertising, and then inserts the funeral home photos and biographies. It has been zero hassle to the funeral home, with great reward reaped. Partner Plus is a dream to work with- all of the representatives have been attentive, helpful, and responsive. We would highly recommend a partnership with this company.
