Funeral Guard Brand site

Our main brand website is funeralguard.co.uk. Some of our current lead providers achieve an 18%+ conversion rate on this website. The website validates email addresses; and both UK landline and Mobile numbers. This massively increases the conversion rate from Lead to Sale, and also reduces the number of returned leads due to fake, incorrect and hoax data.

We will expect a conversion rate of 7% or over from lead to sale. Any affiliates not hitting this quality metric will be given a chance to improve the lead quality or be removed from the program.
