Chiswell to Speak at Georgia SSA in October
Jim is available to talk or correspond with you to see how he might be of help to you and your self storage business.  
I have witnessed and participated in the evolution of our industry for over three decades. On the Development side, we  have moved from a "Build It and They Will Come" philosophy to an understanding that the mantra must be caution and  conservative assumptions. Detailed due diligence has never been more important whether you are building new or buying an established self-storage facility.

On the Marketing side, we have shifted from the old school total reliance on Yellow Page advertising to interactive websites focused on Search Engine Optimization considerations and click through rates. Facebook, Twitter and YouTube visibility along with email and text messaging strategies have also been implemented.  Self service kiosks and web based facility software have been added to management options at the store level.  However, I still believe strongly that there is no substitute for a customer service focused professionally trained manager with a sincere smile  and a warm handshake. 

I would welcome the opportunity to talk with you to determine how I could apply my years of experience and industry  expertise to you current needs. Send me an email or give me at 434-589-4446 to discuss the self storage issues and challenges you are facing.
