Fort Knox Storage is a Queensland based family owned and operated business. They joined the well deserved rank of becoming one of Queensland's Best Businesses in November 2018. The team at eCentral had many meetings with the owners, shareholders and senior staff well prior to this date. Taking on eCentral as their Marketing Managers was something they had to consider very seriously and be reassured that we were up to the task. They wanted new, fresh and innovative ideas to put them ahead of their competitors. So, yes! They chose us and we began to take them on a new upward financial journey.
We began by reshaping their website with the fastest and latest technology and reduced their dependency on paid Google ads. Some of the team here at eCentral undertook a road trip to meet the Managers in various locations to gain a better insight into how each Fort Knox Storage site was operating. We wanted to ensure we took a highly beneficial and holistic approach to the changes that we were making.
Now, 70% of Fort Knox Storage's current business is coming from organic sources that has been very reliable, with more than 2 times the organic click-through rate than before, which is very significant to changing the nature of their business. The statistics continue to show that occupancy is well above the year on year results.
There were a range of problems revealed within the existing website during eCentral’s initial consultation with Fort Knox Storage. The new website now uses its UX and UI to convert more enquires and deliver superior functionality compared to Fort Knox Storage’s old website, and it was crafted in only 6 weeks. Designing, developing and delivering a hand-crafted website, created from scratch, that integrates all existing content while retaining SEO standing and ensuring all online quote and enquiry plugins continue to function within the Sitelink software is an outstandingly difficult task, making this an exceptionally fast build. Can you increase the efficiency at which your website converts business?

How many prospects have yet to see your business?
eCentral’s dedication to Fort Knox Storage’s success includes the weekly capture of more than 500 data points regarding their digital performance, all collected by hand. There are no unwelcome surprises waiting for Fort Knox Storage with this quality of information, making it abundantly clear where business is coming from and where any gaps might be forming. Organically-sourced business for Fort Knox Storage leapt from 20% to 40% after taking on eCentral as their marketing managers. Do you want to ensure your marketing is backed by the relevant data?
