Self Storage Talk, an online community that caters to the needs of self storage industry professionals, recently celebrated its 7th year in being arguably the largest online self storage forum. Self Storage Talk is operated by Inside Self Storage, another reputable and very well recognized leader in the self storage industry.
Over the past seven years, the online forum has grown to over 7,000 members, 8,000 threads and almost 75,000 posts. The forum usually attracts self storage industry insiders who get together to share tips on best practices, offer marketing advice and even help to solve legal and insurance issues.
The Self Storage Talk Message board covers four areas:
• General self storage forums – this includes topics like day-to-day management, marketing, technology and staffing and education.
• Specialty forums – this features a resource center where users can share sales scripts, maintenance schedules and staff policies and procedures. There is also information on ancillaries and add-on profit centers.
• Self storage marketplace – this is where site users can view real estate listings and investment opportunities. Self storage managers and operators can also sell or swap equipment, retail products and crafts.
• Miscellaneous – this area covers everything from government and economics to religion and philosophy.
Self Storage Talk members range from seasoned professionals to those new in the industry. Its members share stories about tenants, maintaining facilities and sometimes, just chit-chat in general.
Self Storage Talk is a valuable resource for just about everyone in the self storage industry. If you aren’t already a member, you can register for free to begin sharing self storage industry tips and news. The upcoming Inside Self Storage World Expo will feature a Self Storage Talk Meet-and-Greet where members of the forum will have the opportunity to interact in person.
We wish Self Storage Talk and its members all the best and continued success in the next seven years!
