    Less Facebook. More Google, Twitter, Apple & NextDoor.

        I am interested in how you are using Apple as well.

          So I've been told by the marketing specialists that social media isn't that imperative for self storage as people go where' it's close and look at google reviews. We're going to work on getting the google reviews up .

            We got a window decal from Google when we verified our business. I haven't installed it because I don't want to junk up the entry doors. Google is a strong tool but I've just never had a ton of luck with AdWords. It may be something that I'm doing. What actions are you taking to boost google reviews? I have 11 reviews (all positive thank goodness) but my competitors have over 100... Maybe something I need to look into.

              So I've been thinking about the google reviews thing since my previous post. I came up with this idea and I'd like some honest feedback. Do you think its okay to flat out ask for reviews? I've just posted these two signs on our property to test the waters. What's your take on it?

                I think its a great idea to ask and offering the incentive will surely get you positive reviews. I wonder though if some may say that you are paying for these reviews?

                Personally, when reading reviews on anything, I take 1 star reviews with a grain of salt. Usually the customer didn't know how to follow the directions or he/she is upset over bad customer service or shipping. (Again, thinking about not just storage) I think asking for the review is the best way to get any positive feedback. I think we may do something similar when we get opened up.

                Great signage by the way!

                  Thank you Omega - I had the same consideration about backlash from "buying" reviews. I will do everything I can to earn a good review but I also understand that I'm not going to be able to make 100% of the people who walk in here happy. I would still pay in the event that I had a bad review but would work very hard to convince them to make it a good one.

                  I noticed that you're in Rogersville. My parents have a home not to far from you on Lake Norris. Lots of love for East Tennessee!

                    As a consumer, once I narrow down a product, I look at reviews. What impresses me most is when the company/manufacturer responds to a negative review. So every review, whether positive or negative can help build a reputation. AND yes, not everyone will leave review regardless of incentives.


                    I have been many places and fortunate to have been around lots of the US and East TN is one of the prettiest--well I am a little biased!
