The Story

When storage powerhouse Lackland Self Storage approached Hudson in need of a rejuvenated digital marketing plan, our team was eager to oblige. Since 1977, Lackland has provided outstanding storage services to New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

Highlighting the company’s ability to adapt and evolve consistently over the years, Hudson’s objective was to showcase Lackland’s use of technology and enhanced security in a way that would resonate with current and potential customers. Hudson’s efforts surpassed Lackland’s expectations both in conversion and engagement rates.

The Results

Keeping in mind Lackland’s emphasis on increasing occupancy rates, the Hudson team kept this goal at the forefront of efforts. Prior to teaming up with Hudson, Lackland had a total occupancy rate of 85 percent across all locations. After working closely with Hudson for a year, Lackland’s total occupancy rate spiked to 93 percent across all locations.

After the redevelopment of Lackland’s Pay-Per-Click efforts, along with close account management, cost per lead dropped by more than 50 percent.

On the social front, Lackland’s Facebook fanbase more than doubled through both organic and paid efforts. Hudson developed a Facebook ‘Like’ advertising campaign that garnered a remarkable conversion rate of 85 percent with a cost-per-click of less than $1.
