Making a Difference in a Texas Rocky Economy
Posted By Justin Small on Feb 21, 2023 :: 0 Comments :: Back To Press Releases

The self storage industry in Texas, like many others, has been hit hard by the recent rocky economy. However, there are steps that storage owners and operators can take to make a difference and ensure their businesses survive during these difficult times.

First and foremost, it's important to focus on providing excellent customer service. In a challenging economy, customers may be more price-sensitive than ever, but they still want to feel valued and respected. By providing outstanding customer service, storage owners and operators can build a loyal customer base that will stick with them through thick and thin.

One way to enhance customer service is by investing in modern technology. For example, self-service kiosks can streamline the rental process, making it faster and more efficient for customers. Online booking and payment systems can also be highly convenient, allowing customers to easily reserve and pay for storage units without needing to visit the facility in person.

Another way to differentiate oneself in the self storage industry is by offering unique amenities. For example, some storage facilities offer climate-controlled units, 24/7 access, and on-site security to set themselves apart from the competition. Additionally, adding extra services like package receiving, truck rental, or moving supplies can increase revenue and customer satisfaction.

Marketing can also make a big difference in the self storage industry during a rocky economy. By investing in digital marketing strategies like search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) advertising, storage owners and operators can increase their visibility online and attract more potential customers. Utilizing social media platforms to showcase the facility's amenities, provide customer testimonials, and highlight community events or initiatives can also be highly effective.

In addition to focusing on customer service, technology, amenities, and marketing, storage owners and operators can also take steps to reduce costs and maximize efficiency. This may include negotiating better deals with vendors or suppliers, optimizing staffing levels, and implementing energy-efficient systems to reduce utility bills.

Finally, storage owners and operators can make a difference in their communities by giving back. Supporting local charities or sponsoring community events can not only generate positive PR, but also help build goodwill and foster strong relationships with customers and neighbors.

In conclusion, while the rocky economy may present challenges for the self storage industry in Texas, there are still opportunities for storage owners and operators to make a difference and thrive. By focusing on customer service, investing in technology, offering unique amenities, marketing effectively, reducing costs, and giving back to their communities, self storage businesses can weather the storm and emerge stronger than ever.
