Digital Marketing & Self Storage: Where to Focus Your Efforts?
Christina Alvino, FineView Marketing

With so many marketing channel options it’s hard to know exactly where to focus. Based on the current world events we know that your digital presence and visibility online is going to be more important than ever. During NeSSA’s third installment of the Virtual Spring Retreat Webinar Series, we’ll discuss the most important marketing channels to master as a self storage operator, including basic and advanced tips about search engine optimization (SEO), local search marketing, social media, and more. The goal isn’t necessarily to make you the digital marketing expert, but give you the ammunition you need to ask the right questions and have an educated conversation about the marketing efforts for your business.

If you have additional questions, want some advice, or just need a professional opinion about your current marketing efforts feel free to send me an email and I’ll be happy to set up a 15-30 minute one-on-one chat.
