Compass Self Storage Launches Advanced Marketing Strategies on the G5 Marketing Cloud™








Cleveland, OH: Compass Self Storage, a member of the Amsdell family of companies, today took another step forward as an innovative company by launching the G5 Marketing Cloud to create tailored marketing strategies by location, inclusive of paid advertising, reputation management, and an optimized online presence.

“Compass Self Storage is a forward-thinking company that stands out in the self storage industry by being data-driven and creating a digital presence that embodies their brand and gives prospective customers exactly what they’re looking for when they’re looking for it,” says Dan Hobin, Chief Executive Officer for G5. “As their marketing partner, we’re always striving to work closely together to deliver the best results, and Compass Self Storage is doing it right.”

Compass Self Storage began partnering with G5 in 2008 to strengthen its digital marketing strategy. Now, they’ve leveraged the G5 Marketing Cloud to launch their new website built for optimal user experience, with an easy-to-navigate design and detailed information that allows users to make informed decisions quickly.

“We’re excited to provide an enriched and efficient experience for our visitors,” says Todd Amsdell, President of Compass Self Storage. “With people researching on the go from their mobile devices, and often after hours, it’s important that we provide an experience that’s as close as possible to an in-person interaction through our website and across every digital touchpoint.”

This launch enables Compass Self Storage to reach their target audiences through improved search engine optimization, and to make website improvements in real time based on data, while getting better website speed for greater performance across all devices. “And because Compass Self Storage is always thinking ahead, they’ve set themselves up to easily implement G5 Uber Leasing® with Centershift,” says Hobin, “which will enable their online customers to search, find, and buy, all in one mobile-friendly page, simplifying the leasing process.”
