    replied to Toxic Co-Worker
    Once upon a time I worked with a fella and here are 4 things he asked me to do regularly:
    1. Read aloud and respond to his emails while he dictated
    2. Fetch more coffee / soda for him
    3. File paperwork that he had made a mess of
    4. Clean the restrooms after he had used them.
    This person was supposed to be...

    replied to Do you display others business cards?
    Iamkathleenj do you do a newsletter? that might be one place to advertise for other businesses. But you have to be careful you don't annoy tenants with your promotion of others. Social media is a great idea, one of our facilities regularly is featured in a moving companies videos, they move people into...

    I will have to admit that I did not even consider this until reading this message. Now I feel as if it was there staring me in the face the entire time. Great idea! Will now look into what it takes to be a member. Thanks

    replied to E-Mail Marketing
    Hi LauraGattis , we ran our last email marketing campaign at the end of the school year/ beginning of summer so our goal was mostly college students, not a lot of long term renters. We saw some of them but not a whole lot. Mostly we got more questions than rentals from our efforts....

    replied to Targeting Military Renters
    Contact a local base, they have programs, websites and print material they hand out when people are coming/ going . It might cost to advertise with them, but you'd also be getting directly into the military circuit this way....

    replied to Word-of-Mouth Marketing
    We encourage our Managers to provide excellent customer service. Even if tenants are moving out, a kind action can lead to a huge return when someone tells friends of their experience. Additionally, we offer a friend referral credit, that gets people $$ off their rent for sending friends our way....

    replied to Crying at Work
    I have cried at work, this was simply due to frustrations. Sometimes when attempting to communicate with others the meanings of words gets lost. This is very hard to overcome, especially when talking to someone higher up the food chain than yourself. However, I do think it is healthy but you have to...

    replied to How I Got Into Storage
    Currently I work for a company but I could see a future with my own facility someday. There's lots to learn and having someone else with knowledge show you the right and wrong ways is a big help. I came from an IT Help desk job which was not in anyway my ideal career, I am still trying to piece together...

    It baffles me that some people think they can just walk in off the street and demand things. Sorry, that's not how this works. That's not how any of this works....

    replied to Are You a Pack Rat?
    ! I like to hold onto things but not the normal things you'd think. I have a hard time throwing away paper so I will keep them until I have a giant stack, then I will take them to be recycled. I've been told its 'just trash, throw it away' - but I feel so bad that I can't. Someday we might use...

    replied to Fighting Tenants
    Hey Lillian , Sounds like you already know what to do. Ask the owner what they want to do then do that. In situations like this its best to remind yourself that can only do what you're allowed to do. Hopefully you won't have situations like this in the future.

    From what I've heard most of the tenants don't have issues paying with card or check/money order. Plus now we have one less thing for site managers to have worry about....

    replied to Cash Control At Your Facility
    We used to have cash but this year we implemented a debit card system. I don't know the particulars but basically each facility now has a card they use instead of petty cash and we no longer take cash payments as of the January this year. It's been an interesting transition with a little bit of push...

    We decorate for Mardi Gras, Halloween and Christmas . . . while I can get behind the 'spirit' of the decor it takes a long time to set up and take down. I'll try to remember to share pics, the office here decorates at about 110% ...

    Ours is here: TellusSelfStorage.com

    Third party vendors like StorEdge, Easy Storage Solutions and Automatit are pretty good to work with. We used to have a Wordpress site but decided to go with a vendor because of the SiteLink integration. On the old site we had a lot of custom code that...
