Self-Storage Managers Love Las Vegas ... Especially When the Trip Is Free
As part of a special promotion for the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, Self-Storage Talk, the official online community of ISS, hosted a contest to give away two Las Vegas travel packages. Site managers were invited to submit their most innovative and potentially successful ideas for generating facility revenue via the forum. The authors of the two best ideas were awarded with a free expo-education package, paid air travel on Southwest Airlines, and three free nights at the Paris Hotel & Casino, where the expo took place.
Here SST Community Manager John Carlisle (middle) poses with the winners of the contest, which was sponsored by Chateau Products Inc. Patty Sheridan (left) hails from Washington State, while Monica Miller manages a facility in Florida. To read Monica's winning idea about capitalizing on "Storage Wars," click here. Penelope’s idea about introducing a "dollar menu" of add-on items is here.
The winning entries were selected for their originality, creativity, clarity and economic practicality. The entire thread of revenue-generating ideas is still available at SST. It’s a good read for anyone looking to boost business.
