Together Online to Capture Renter Leads in an Increasingly Competitive Industry

Kansas City, KS – June 23, 2010 – The largest privately-owned self storage company in the United States and Puerto Rico has teamed up with the self storage industry's most comprehensive search engine for web marketing and related support.

Simply Self Storage (http://www.simplyss.com/) has signed the majority of its locations up for premium service at StorageFront (http://www.storagefront.com/), becoming one of the largest self storage companies with listings on StorageFront.

"Self storage owners know that the web is today's yellow pages, and Google essentially controls which pages people will flip through,” StorageFront president Rich Cray said. "Unfortunately, climbing to the top of Google and converting leads online can be a costly and time-consuming course for a company of any size. That's why even the largest and most sophisticated storage facilities across the U.S. are turning to StorageFront. By offering Simply Self Storage comprehensive web marketing solutions, StorageFront is helping them more effectively connect with prospective renters.”

Cray added that Simply Self Storage is a forward-thinking organization, pointing out the fact that the company was recently ranked No. 1 in Entrepreneur Magazine's Hot 100 Fastest-growing Businesses in America. Joining StorageFront, Cray said, should help Simply Self Storage continue to grow its business.

"We joined StorageFront because they offer great online presence and many useful and user friendly tools for tracking conversions,” said Christina Furnia, Director of Marketing at Simply Self Storage. "StorageFront's tracking capabilities, Internet presence, web interface and price point were major attractions for us.”

Simply Self Storage has locations across the U.S. and locations in Puerto Rico.

"We are delighted to be selected by Simply Self Storage for web marketing support,” said Marc Smith, Director of Business Development at StorageFront. "Our expertise in web development and search engine marketing will ensure that Simply gets first-rate results in an increasingly competitive market.”
