What is Internet Marketing for Storage Units?

Simply put, internet advertising for storage units is a way to advertise products and services to storage units through online channels like websites, search engines, social media, email, or mobile apps.

Many storage units think online marketing is just another term for search engine optimization or PPC advertising. While both of those services are used in website advertising, neither fully explain the depth of a modern digital marketing program for storage units.

Today's digital advertising services often include dozens of internet advertising tactics, all working in tandem to help your self storage company improve visibility and conversions.

Some of the best storage unit online advertising strategies include:

  • Make your self storage company digital assets (apps, sales funnels, websites) more visible through search engine optimization, social media marketing, affiliate advertising, or paid advertising.
  • Create storage unit landing pages, sales funnels, and optimize your conversion rate to grow revenue.
  • Track how visitors interact with your digital assets to help you better understand areas of improvement, retargeting opportunities, or conversion rates.
  • Show the expertise, authority, and trust of your storage units through content marketing, video production, backlink building, review collection, social media proof, and website improvements.
  • Create and nurture relationships for your self storage company with email, SMS, and social media.

SEO Strategies for Self Storage Companies

To bring your website into the first page of search results for competitive phrases you must take a holistic approach to SEO within your storage unit internet advertising plan. A comprehensive review and optimization of your off-page, technical, and on-page SEO is necessary to demonstrate value to search engines, as these three components work together.

As we bring on new clients in the storage unit field for digital advertising, we commonly discover concerns related to page performance, content quality, and the backlink strength. To tackle these search engine optimization challenges and improve your search optimization, technical, on-page, and off-page SEO optimizations can be utilized. Let's explore more about each of these self storage company search engine optimization services:

  • Technical search engine optimization includes factors such as website performance, website security, XML sitemaps, website architecture, structured data, Open Graph tags, and broken pages. These factors influence how Google interprets and navigates your content, as well as how visitors engage with your storage unit website. To tackle technical SEO challenges, the help of a web developer is usually required since these problems are often tied to your storage unit website's platform or theme. We employ a team of website developers with expertise in widely-used platforms like WordPress and Shopify.
  • On-Page search engine optimization encompasses various elements, including images, keyword research, content silos, content writing, internal linking, competitive analysis, frequently asked questions, page titles, meta tags, and images. By improving these components of your on-page search engine optimization, you can enable search engines to gain a deeper understanding of the worth of your content and acknowledge your self storage company as a reputable source on the subject matter. In addition, it will help increase important metrics like "time on site" for your visitors, which shows search engines you provided something of value to the search user. Never underestimate the value and importance of content creation within your self storage company internet marketing plan.
  • Offsite search engine optimization encompasses various factors that determine the quality and naturalness of your backlink profile, including the number of backlinks and referring domains, the relevance and authority of those backlinks, link velocity, social media signals, and more. By establishing natural backlinks to your website and internal pages, you can communicate to search engines that your website and content are reputable and deserving of recognition from third-party sources.

To make sure your self storage company digital marketing plan is effective, it's essential to take a comprehensive approach to SEO that addresses all the important areas, rather than just a select few. If you build an incredibly fast website without useful content or quality backlinks you will likely never see the first page of search results, except in unique circumstances. The same is true for other scenarios where two areas of SEO have been optimized, but one was neglected. To prevent your self storage company from being surpassed by competitors who have completed all the necessary search engine optimization checklist items, it's essential to allocate your focus equally.

Self Storage Company Link Building Tactics

Most self storage companies tend to overlook the importance of creating authoritative links in off-page SEO, which is why it is worth emphasizing this aspect of search engine optimization.

Large retailers in product-specific searches and long-standing service providers in local search results are often the top results for competitive keywords and long-tail phrases on the first page of search results. Upon further analysis of the exact pages that show up in these search results, you'll typically find that the number of backlinks pointing to those pages far exceeds the number pointing to relevant pages on your self storage company website. That is because search engines use backlinks to determine how authoritative your self storage company website and content are on a particular subject.

To improve your own web pages, you must build quality backlinks to your homepage and interior pages using white-hat search engine optimization link building plans. It's important to recognize that this is a sustained effort for the digital marketing strategy of your self storage company. It's important not to get overly excited for a few weeks and build dozens of backlinks, then abandon it for months or years. Instead, you should view this as a long-term commitment for your digital advertising strategy. Skipping the long-term commitment of building high-quality backlinks will hinder your chances of appearing on the first page of search results. You need to establish a link-building plan that will provide consistent and steady growth of quality backlinks from relevant websites and social media platforms. Most of all, you need to keep your backlink profile natural by not overdoing exact-match phrases, buying numerous backlinks from private block networks (PBNs), or participating in any black-hat link-building methods.

We employ various white-hat techniques to build links for your self storage company as part of our online advertising campaigns. These include:

  • Utilizing the “Skyscraper Technique” to build better versions of a ranked content article from a different self storage company.
  • Composing detailed articles and having them published on third-party websites as a guest post, with a link that directs readers to your self storage company website, can help promote your small business.
  • Getting in touch with prominent storage unit websites and suggesting content enhancements for their current articles, which may have become outdated or overlooked a relevant topic, is a proactive approach.
  • Including your website in directories that are relevant to your industry can help expand your online presence, using valid NAP citations (Name, Address, Phone).

Online Reputation Management (ORM) Strategies for Self Storage Companies

Your online reputation is an important trust factor search engines use to determine rank positions, and your target audience uses it to make purchasing decisions. The significance of online reputation is ubiquitous, encompassing various types of purchases and decisions, including the selection of a service provider, online shopping, and the hiring of self storage companies. Positive and negative experiences of others with your self storage company are both intriguing to readers.

To raise the number of reviews from previous customers for your self storage company, we can support local service companies in creating a review generation plan as part of their online marketing service. This often involves collecting reviews on Google My Business, UpCity, Yellow Pages, Angi, Yelp, and other online review collection websites.

If you run an ecommerce-focused self storage company, we can help with the collection of product reviews and company reviews. When it comes to ecommerce, it is crucial to gather reviews that reflect both the quality of your products and the level of customer service offered by your self storage company. When shopping online, customers desire the assurance that the product they are buying is of satisfactory quality or usefulness. Additionally, they require the confidence that you will deliver the order and offer assistance if they have any inquiries after the purchase.

To maintain a favorable reputation for professional service providers, such as doctors or attorneys, we can support them in creating a systematic approach for procuring client testimonials as part of their website marketing plan, which will consistently showcase a positive image of their self storage company. This entails producing reviews, overseeing online reputation, mending impaired online reputation, executing survey campaigns, and enhancing social media presence. SEO can be leveraged to refine the top search results on the first page, which can enhance the online reputation of your self storage company.

The risk of ignoring your online reputation is the loss of long-term business, which often isn't noticed until significant damage has been accumulated. Take control of your online reputation today to ensure you always put forth a better image than your competition.

Storage Unit Strategies for Content Marketing

Generating and distributing pertinent blog posts, instructional videos, case studies, white papers, and other digital media through content marketing is a standard approach used by most self storage companies to captivate and retain a highly-engaged audience. By leveraging this digital advertising approach, your self storage company can assert itself as a pioneer in the field, dominate organic search results, and engage your target audience.

When your target rental customers begin to identify your self storage company as the source of valuable advice or guidance you will find it is easier to guide them through your sales funnel. We help storage unit internet marketing customers put together the right content marketing plan for their self storage company.

Prior to launching a content marketing plan, it is essential to determine your intended audience. By doing so, you can ascertain which content media format best suits your target audience's preferences, which may include comprehensive case studies, informative blog posts, informal whitepapers, drip email campaigns, or best-in-class listicles. This will also assist you in selecting the optimal delivery method for your content, which could include social media channels, search engine results, or alternative platforms.

We often help implement content marketing tactics for storage units that involve blog content, infographics, podcasts, videos, email campaigns, whitepapers, case studies, surveys, webinars, checklists, listicles, and lead magnets. We particularly like using the case study method because it is a powerful tool for showing expertise as a leading digital marketing service provider. These are all effective ways to market content if you implement them correctly for your self storage company.

Social Ads Game Plans for Self Storage Companies

The use of social media advertising in internet advertising involves paid advertising being run on social platforms like Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, LinkedIn, and Facebook. These social media channels offer a quick and effective method for connecting to your target audience by allowing you to select interests, behaviors, and demographics. However, the downside can be the added cost of setting up the campaigns, creating landing pages, building out sales funnels, and performing conversion rate optimization to ensure the PPC advertising function as a proper lead generation or sales generation tool for your self storage company.

By leveraging the data sources of social media platforms, self storage companies can hyper-target their audiences to deliver personalized content based on demographics, behaviors, interests, and other factors. While this is an enormous opportunity for most established self storage companies, it can be an expensive lesson for businesses that aren't ready to take full advantage of social media marketing.

We help self storage companies build out the necessary sales funnels and lead generation tools to make the most of their social ads. In addition, we suggest creating plans for conversion optimization and retargeting as part of our website marketing plans, as both plans can enhance the return on ad spend for your campaigns. Let's not forget to mention the freshness of your ad creatives. When running self storage company social ads plans, you must be mindful of ad decay and ad fatigue to prevent your campaigns from becoming stagnant and suffering from degraded performance.

Search Advertising Campaigns for Self Storage Companies

The use of search engine marketing in online advertising involves PPC advertising being run on search engines like Google and Bing. You will find that Google Ads and Bing Ads offer a quick and effective method for connecting your self storage company to an engaged audience that is actively looking for your products or services. The downside is the cost of setting up an effective and scalable paid ads campaign for your self storage company, which often involves the creation of landing pages or sales funnels that are optimized for conversion opportunities.

We help self storage companies of all sizes build out the necessary landing pages and funnels to get leads and increase revenue, which makes paid ads a cost-effective online marketing plan. For any search engine marketing campaign, we recommend creating a plan for retargeting and conversion rate optimization to improve your return on investment.

Developing Revenue Funnels for Self Storage Companies

A sales funnel, or purchase funnel, is the visual representation of journeys taken by rental customers with your self storage company. The illustration of a sales funnel, which is often referred to as a marketing funnel or revenue funnel, looks just like a physical funnel you'd use to pour a liquid into a container. The top of the funnel is always larger because it illustrates the large number of potential rental customers that might interact with your self storage company. The funnel narrows at the bottom to represent the various exit points within the sales process. Naturally, the bottom of the funnel is the smallest part because it represents the number of people who converted through the generation of a lead or the sale of a product.

The development of a sales funnel for self storage companies is more difficult than the explanation of its concepts. For example, some of the most successful sales funnels produce millions of dollars of value each day for their owners. To create a sales funnel that produces value for your self storage company, you must put thought into the goal of the sales funnel and the type of sales funnel you want to implement.

There are numerous types of sales funnels, including automated webinar funnels, lead magnet funnels, premium customer funnels, free plus shipping funnels, affiliate sales funnels, self-liquidating funnels, and dozens of others to consider for your self storage company. When you work with one of our storage unit-focused website advertising experts, you will have an experienced digital marketer to bounce ideas off to help you determine the best type of revenue funnel for your self storage company. Alternatively, if you don't have an interest in being involved in the process, we can research more about your self storage company to determine the best funnels to explore and test within your digital advertising service.

Conversion Rate Optimization for Self Storage Companies

There is almost no reason to neglect conversion rate optimization within storage unit online marketing services. This is a critical aspect of any type of website marketing for storage units since it directly impacts the ability of the marketing service to provide value for the self storage company paying for the marketing service.

Boosting conversion rates can have a huge impact on your bottom line. Before you pursue a CRO plan for your self storage company, it is important to understand what it is, how it works, and how to evaluate the service. This is a time-intensive process that involves plenty of iterative research and testing. What makes it most difficult is the CRO plans that work for one storage unit might not work for another storage unit.

The most common storage unit CRO strategies include reducing form fields on contact forms, testing different call-to-action phrases, creating appealing headlines, implementing a sense of urgency, fixing mobile site glitches, improving website performance, adding exit-intent popups, defining value for the visitor, and adding trust and social proof signals.

True conversion rate optimization for storage units can become much more complex. To really dive into CRO, we must fully understand your business offer, your competitors, the strengths and weaknesses of your value proposition, how visitors are currently interacting with your digital assets, the online reputation of your storage units, and many other factors.

Email Marketing Strategies for Self Storage Companies

You can use email marketing within a digital strategy to boost brand awareness, drive website traffic, get sales and revenue, bring awareness to your social media profiles, engage past storage units, and gain valuable information about your target audience.

We help our internet advertising self storage company clients use Mail Chimp, Campaign Monitor, and Constant Contact within their email marketing services. These are robust email marketing tools to create subscriber lists, segment your audience, and even develop email marketing drip campaigns.

The most important part of email marketing is developing a plan to increase your subscribers. We help email marketing self storage company customers build and nurture their email marketing lists by implementing email collection opportunities within checkout processes, lead magnets, exit-intent popups, checkout processes, squeeze pages, referral programs, and numerous other methods.

Lead Generation for Self Storage Companies

For local service providers, the most important part of an inbound marketing program is lead generation. Not everything can be sold on the internet. For a lot of products and services, a phone conversation or in-person conversation is needed to close the sale. For these types of business industries, lead gen plans are going to be critical.

There are many types of lead generation tactics to consider, all of which have been tried and implemented by our internet marketing team, for storage units and other professionals, at some point in the past. The most common lead gen strategies for storage units include the creation of helpful content, retargeting past website visitors, nurturing past contacts with email marketing, engaging visitors with live chat, developing free tools for visitors to use, creating referral programs and affiliate programs, creating video content that can be shared online, setting up free webinars for visitors to attend, or offering helpful downloadable content in a lead magnet.

For most storage unit online advertising campaigns where lead generation is a primary goal, our team will develop and implement one or more lead gen tactics in your digital assets to test what works best for your self storage company.

Video Marketing for Self Storage Companies

As a complete digital marketing company for storage units, we have our own in-house video production and video marketing department. This has been extremely helpful for self storage company content marketing plans that required creative video assets. More importantly, we've used our video production department for the creation of video ads on YouTube and video marketing within Facebook Ads campaigns. There are many great applications for video production within your online advertising strategy for your self storage company. You can use videos to demonstrate unique products, teach new concepts, and improve visitor duration. You can also implement videos within website advertising services to bring life to paid campaigns.

Why You Should Invest in Digital Marketing for Your Self Storage Company

For self storage companies that rely on selling products or services, marketing is an eventual consideration to get revenue. There are various justifications to weigh internet marketing against other, more traditional, marketing approaches for your self storage company. Let's go over some of the good reasons to implement our online marketing plan within your self storage company:

  • Digital marketing for storage units is often more affordable than other forms of marketing because it can be started at a low amount and scaled as success is measured.
  • Through the application of valuable reporting tools such as Google Analytics, you can acquire deeper insights into the quantity of visitors who interacted with your brand, the duration of time they were engaged with your marketing efforts, and whether they returned to your website in the days, weeks, or months after their initial engagement.
  • These days, individuals are consistently utilizing their phones, tablets, and desktop computers. Why not opt for a marketing approach and platform that has the capability to pursue your target audience wherever they travel in life?
  • Digital advertising offers much more versatility than print marketing, billboard ads, television commercials, or radio ads, which are not as easy to update.
  • Online marketing for storage units provides the best capacity for user engagement. It can be quite challenging to encourage people to comment, like, or share any non-digital advertisements for your self storage company.

6 Key Focus Points for Website Success

How to Develop a Website Advertising Program for Self Storage Companies

It is essential to devise a plan with specific business goals that can be measured prior to launching your digital marketing campaign for your self storage company. Ensuring that everyone involved in the digital advertising service understands the ultimate goal is crucial in order to avoid spending time on ideas that will not have a positive effect on your self storage company.

1.) Identify your target audience

With a clear set of business goals in place for your storage units, you can move on to identifying a target audience. Knowing your target audience is crucial. This enables you to personalize your internet advertising endeavors for your self storage company to the platforms your intended audience engages with, and make certain that your messaging resonates with them.

2.) Find out what your audience needs

With your business goals and target customer established, you can now make an informed decision about the needs and search intent of your audience. This can help ensure that your storage units target the appropriate keywords for your online marketing, and that your content marketing approaches are in sync with your audience's requirements.

3.) Start slower moving services sooner

If you plan to incorporate search engine optimization in the digital strategy of your self storage company, make that your first priority. The slowest moving website advertising plan for self storage companies, and even other industries, is SEO. It can take several weeks or months for search engines to acknowledge and implement the changes you make to your website, content, and backlinks that affect your rankings, especially for the internet marketing efforts of self storage companies.

4.) Creating high-quality landing pages or sales funnels should be a priority

At this stage, it may be worth exploring paid ads options for your self storage company website or other digital assets. It's crucial to create a landing page or sales funnel before sending paid traffic to your service page, home page, or product page. A common mistake with paid ads campaigns for self storage companies is directing traffic to a page that isn't optimized for converting a cold audience, which can result in high bounce rates and low conversion rates. Effective lead generation for self storage companies often involves the use of splash pages and sales funnels to guide visitors towards the desired marketing outcome.

5.) Create automated email sequences for retargeting

Now that plans are in place for bringing traffic to your self storage company, you should consider how to best interact with those visitors after they leave your website. Not everyone who visits your website, landing page, or sales funnel will convert on the first visit. One should explore options to create an email marketing list, give SMS alerts for new promotions, or establish tracking pixels to retarget people who recently browsed through your website.

6.) Make testing a regular process

With all of these internet marketing strategies set up for your self storage company, you can move into the testing and optimization phase. This involves ongoing evaluation of the success of your campaigns, identifying areas for improvement, and even trying out new ideas from case studies or white papers. You should always be in a state of conversion rate optimization throughout all aspects of the online marketing service of your self storage company.
