Why Your Self Storage Facility Needs a Modern Website

July 24, 2018

To capture online traffic in self storage, you need either great SEO, a well thought-out pay-per-click campaign, or both.

Studies show that between 70-80% of people research a company online BEFORE visiting the small business or making a purchase with them.

But what happens once that traffic makes it to your self storage website?

Along with great SEO and a well thought-out pay-per-click campaign, your website should turn web traffic into paying tenants.

It is important for those leads to be able to quickly and easily find your self storage rates and move in online

Offering online rentals is one of the most effective ways to go from lead to lease.

Why have a modern self storage website?

Self storage owners and managers need a modern self storage website for several reasons.

1. Look Professional

Online perception is equally important as physical perception nowadays.

You wouldn’t neglect your landscaping or signage for years, and you should show the same regard to your website.

2. Return on Investment

A modern website not only acts as a funnel to capture new self storage rentals, but it has the tools to analyze the returns.

You can’t have one without the other -- an outdated site with analytics is like a gun without ammo, and a modern site with no analytics is just as bad.

3. SEO

Search engines take user experience (UX) into account when indexing your site.

That is judging which results your self storage website will show up on, and what ranking.
