Good news: The Storage Facilitator receives award for ‘Best Online Newsroom’

The blog you’re reading right now, The Storage Facilitator, has earned a big honor in Ragan’s 2014 PR Daily Awards. The awards program recognizes PR and marketing excellence in the business, nonprofit and government sectors.

Judges in the awards program named The Storage Facilitator as the winner in the “Best Online Newsroom” category. Our competitors in this category included Coca-Cola, adidas and Nissan Americas. Past winners in this category include Nikon and the Michigan Economic Development Corp.

“Self-storage may not be the most exciting industry out there, but the Storage Facilitator does a solid job of providing the kind of practical information an operator needs every day,” PR Daily said.

The “valuable service” provided by The Storage Facilitator in delivering news, information and advice to the self-storage industry made our well-designed blog “a worthy winner” in the “Best Online Newsroom” category, PR Daily said.

The Storage Facilitator offers self-storage professionals a “reliable outlet for interesting and informative news every day,” according to PR Daily. “News outlets for the self-storage industry aren’t common, but the Storage Facilitator website aims to change that,” PR Daily said.
