In appreciation of new and existing customers, The Lock Up, a Chicago-based self-storage company with 32 facilities nationwide, wrapped up the year by giving away a new Apple iPod Touch at each of its locations.
The Lock Up launched the sweepstakes in November, offering visitors to the company’s Facebook page the opportunity to enter to win an iPod Touch. Winners were chosen Dec. 15.
Facebook has been a popular marketing avenue for the company, enabling The Lock Up to post storage deals and campaigns, as well as garner any comments or suggestions customers may have, said Andrea Carnes, vice president of operations.
"We realize consumers have many choices with regards to self-storage options, so we really strive to go above and beyond their expectations in terms of customer care," she added.
As part of its ongoing commitment to demonstrating customer appreciation, The Lock Up has a full slate of discount specials, events and additional Facebook sweepstakes planned for the new year. “Our goal for 2011 is to not only offer the best service and most creative and competitive promotions, but to continue our public outreach via social-media outlets as well. We really look forward to building a greater rapport with people nationwide so we can listen to their suggestions and tailor our services to their needs,” Carnes said.
