An enterprise self-storage company serves both personal and commercial consumers in the United States. They sought a way to grow their brand presence and improve their market share.
Challenge: Building Content Authority Across a Variety of Locations at Scale
The self-storage brand’s marketing team maintained an extensive library of hyperlocal content and wanted to leverage what they already had on their site. Optimization of this content proved cumbersome and oftentimes required time-consuming research for hundreds of self-storage location pages.
They needed a way to confirm that the locations they were targeting with their content actually fit the needs of their audience in order to improve the search experience and therefore their SEO market share.
