We’d like to highlight the experience our team member Yesenia Wilhoite has had so far with the San Diego East County Chamber of Commerce. Yesenia began attending meetings at the Chamber over the past few months in an effort to network with local businesses, get involved in the community, and hopefully get the word out about the vacancies and great deals at StaxUP Storage on HIll Street.
“We have a lot of vacancy right now,” said Yesenia. “Obviously we want to get our occupancy much higher and fill those units with good tenants who need storage.”
While it is still too early to determine the types of opportunities this could create for Hill Street, Yesenia the first self storage professional to join the Chamber. She sees this as an opportunity to educate the community about self storage.
“I’m the only storage person that attends these meetings,” said Yesenia. “I went to a meeting for a recommendation group. They refer one another to each others businesses and they’re very loyal. So for example, if there was a mover there, I would recommend our customers to them, and they would do the same for us.”
Given an audience that is not particularly aware about the ins and outs of the self storage industry, Yesenia has quickly earned an opportunity to educate the group about storage. But more importantly, StaxUP Storage.
“They weren’t really sure about how storage works or what it even is,” said Wilhoite. “Next month I’ll be doing a ten minute commercial presentation to the group to fill them in on what storage is all about.”
As part of the Chamber, StaxUP Storage has a profile page on the Chamber website. Check it out and be sure to stay tuned for more information on Yesenia’s presentation to the Chamber next month. Thanks again to the East County Chamber of Commerce for being such great new friends!
