River Heights storage companies in Saskatchewan, Canada share some of the same problems all storage places in the world do. How do we fill up the building with customers? Many storage places do very well in filling up their buildings with customers. Most of the research we have done over the years has shown that many storage places have a good number of customers filling up their buildings. A small storage place may have around three hundred to four hundred storage spaces in them. These spaces are spread out in different sizes to please all the customers of a certain marketing area. In marketing, there are only a certain amount of customers out there who need storage. This is one of the basic ideas of marketing, that only a number of all potential customers want or need your product. Not everyone needs or wants a storage place. If you take the number of all potential customers and divide them all up, this is what all the storage places have to fight for. For example, most people need shoes. How does a consumer choose their shoes? Which ones will they buy? Why do they buy them?
River Heights storage facilities in Saskatchewan, Canada have the same problem as others do. For all the people who need storage, how do they get their share of them. This is called as you may have guessed by now, market share. If a million people need shoes this week, what shoes will they buy? Do Nike shoes have a thirty percent of that market? That would be their market share. Now, how do they make it bigger than that? In marketing lingo, there are the four P’s. This what a company can change to try to change the market share they want t get. The four P’s are product, promotion, price, and placement, or location.
River Heights storage companies in Saskatchewan, Canada need to think about this too. Location is so important in the storage industry that it is essential in the business. Building a big beautiful building in a location no one wants to go to, would be pretty dumb and the business would fail. We should not say the word dumb though, because it is a fine art to know where to build a storage place. Most people store their stuff within three miles of their homes. This has been determined by research and customer surveys. Knowing this, companies must find locations like that. Building these storage places in out of the way places that no one will go to, will not work. It may be cheaper to build these places in these out of the way places, but the business will suffer because of it. Get a good location, please. We have seen great looking buildings from years ago turn into ghost towns because no one wants to store their stuff so far away from their homes. The buildings are left alone, they decay, and become eyesores for the communities. There are entire warehouse districts in cities that are crime ridden, decayed, unsafe places, to have in the city. Many cities have been smart about these places and have made them funky areas of bars and food places and discos etc. Some used to be storage places. Good luck.
