In this video, he demonstrates why it’s so much more than an online listing and discusses how to leverage its features, particularly the posting function. Though you might be tempted to dance into the TikTok craze, Ross argues that customers are much more likely to be looking for “self-storage near me” on Google. See if you agree!
