5 Rapid Fire Ways To Grow Your Caravan Storage Business

By Gavin Shields on

From selling insurance and enabling online bookings to local SEO tactics, content creation, and strategic price increases, there are a range of techniques that can boost your revenue quickly. We've taken a look at some which you can do today and start seeing results almost instantly!

1. Sell Insurance to your customers.

Self Storage operators in the UK typically see 10-15% revenue increases purely from the sale of insurance to customers. If you can sell insurance, do. If you are using Stora for your online bookings, you can sell insurance by simply clicking a button.

2. Turn on online bookings and payments.

Customers want to book and pay online. Adopt a software solution that will let your customers book and pay online. With Stora, you can be set up for this in less than 30 minutes.

3. Do the easy local SEO steps.

Register for Google My Business and do a few posts. Try and do a weekly post there. Make sure your phone number and opening hours are correct. Set up a Facebook page and make some posts. These two steps alone will help people find you online.

4. Put 5-10 blog posts on your website.

You want people who search on google for "your town" + "caravan storage" to find you. Write articles that mention your town and caravan storage, then put them on your website. If you don't have a website that enables this, we can help!

5. Carry out price increases on existing customers.

This is a long-tested growth tool in the self storage industry and should account for 10%+ revenue growth per year. You can do this manually or you can use an advanced software tool (like Stora of course!) to do it for you.
