    Self storage facilities, for the most part, serve local renters. We satisfy the needs of our community. That's the basic composition of local business, even if somewhat oversimplified. We know, however, that things are really more complicated than that.

    Technology has changed the way consumers find and relate to businesses and brands.

    StoragePug is a modern marketing company for self storage. We create intelligent marketing websites that allow you to rent units & take payments through your facility’s website.

    Local SEO is one of the most important things you can do for your self-storage business.

    About 80 percent of your potential customers will search online for self-storage companies before selecting one to call and give their business.

    What did we do before the Internet? We listed in the yellow pages, advertised in local newspapers, rented billboards, and maybe ran a radio spot or two.

    But the Internet has changed everything. You can rent units on your website!

    Today, when prospective customers need self storage, the first thing they are likely to do is run a Google search for units in their geo-location.

    However, sitemaps are quite important in terms of SEO.
