Marketing is more critical than ever in today’s self-storage market, and facility operators have had to become much more savvy and creative with their promotions and advertising. To recognize the marketing achievements of today’s storage operations, Inside Self-Storage has launched its first “Best in Self-Storage Marketing” contest, open to all facility owners, operators and managers. Participants can win up to $1,000.
To enter, contestants must complete a simple application form and submit examples of their operation’s best marketing pieces or campaigns. A marketing piece can be a TV commercial, radio commercial, billboard, print ad, direct-mail piece, flier, printed promotional item, a YouTube video or other video. Submissions can be made as hard-copy or digital files.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, Aug. 28, and winners will be notified via e-mail on Sept. 9. The first-place winner will receive $1,000; second place will receive $300; and third place will receive $200.
The contest is sponsored by Tucson, Ariz.-based Professional Self Storage Management, which provides third-party management and consulting services for self-storage operations, including due diligence, feasibility studies and development.
