SpareFoot, an online self-storage marketplace and provider of Web-marketing tools, has launched SiteBuilder, designed to simplify the process of creating and maintaining an effective self-storage website.
SiteBuilder users will get a customizable, easy-to-update website that’s proven to convert visitors into tenants, according to a company press release. Users simply upload their facility logo and photos and customize brand messaging. The tool includes an intuitive content-management system that makes it easy to complete website changes at any time. Storage operators can even point a new or existing custom domain address to their SiteBuilder page.
SiteBuilder websites feature details consumers commonly look for when searching for self-storage on their computers and smartphones. The tool integrates with a facility's existing management software to keep unit pricing, amenities and available inventory up-to-date. With complete performance analytics, operators can track website visits, phone calls and online reservations. They can even listen to raw feedback from local consumers through recorded calls and complete call statistics.
“Every self-storage company needs a website, an online headquarters,” said Chuck Gordon, co-founder and CEO. “Our Web experts designed SiteBuilder to be the best affordable turnkey solution. It modernizes your business, so you can reach and convert new tenants.”
SpareFoot is also the provider of GeoPages, a local search supplement for facility operators who already have websites, and AdNetwork, the company’s flagship product. AdNetwork grants facilities highly visible, searchable listings on SpareFoot.com, SelfStorage.com and more than 50 other high-traffic websites that serve storage and moving needs.
Founded in 2008, SpareFoot.com lists more than 5,000 self-storage facilities in its nationwide directory, which allows consumers to find, compare and reserve self-storage units online. Through multiple websites including SpareFoot.com, SelfStorage.com, Apartments.com and many others, SpareFoot helps self-storage operators find new tenants through a pay-for-performance model. This Austin-based startup company is backed by Silverton Partners, FLOODGATE and Capital Factory.
