    Default Howdy from SpareFoot's office in Austin

    Hey guys, thought I'd drop in to introduce myself. I'm Rachel in Austin, TX (transplanted South Florida native). I handle marketing stuff like PR, blogging and social media for SpareFoot and SelfStorage.com.

    One of my blogs, The Storage Facilitator, is a relatively new resource for operators. It's focused on smart web marketing ideas and tips specifically for self storage. Check it out, and comment/tweet/FB us any time with questions or feedback. We'll chat.

    Nice to meet ya'll!

    Rachel,

    Welcome to SST. I can't wait to hear the ideas that you have to share with us all.

    They are not just ideas, she wants to sell you something. We use them, no calls so far. How many people do you know that type in SpareFoot when they are looking for storage?

    A-Team, I am aware of SpareFoot. I used them when they were free.

    However, on SST, even those that work for companies that want to sell us stuff will often give us ideas here on the forum. Maybe to get us interested, or more likely because that is the spirit of the forum.

    Therefore, I gave Rachel the benefit of the doubt and welcomed her and her ideas. I have no doubt that she will adhere to Site Rule #3 and not attempt to sell anything here on SST.

    Hi everyone! I promise I won't be trying to sell you anything here, though I can understand the concern. A big part of my job is writing blog posts and newsletters with tips, advice and marketing ideas. We want to provide value as an info resource for the industry as well.

    A-team, just as an FYI: Most of our site visitors come in from search engine queries for storage in their city. We work hard to rank for search terms like "city storage" so customers in your neighborhood will have a better chance of finding you. PM me if there are any other questions! Thanks guys.
