For the third month running, users of Self-Storage Talk (www.selfstoragetalk.com), the self-storage industry’s largest online community, set a new participation record for the number of users online at one time. The new record of 760 was set earlier today after the forum’s monthly newsletter was delivered to recipients. That number trumped the previous record of 675, set on May 14.
“The record is significant because it shows the increasing appeal of the forum across the industry audience,” said John Carlisle, community manager. “Our goal now has to be to get more of the guest users to register account names and become members so they can fully participate in the community.”
Unregistered guests can read and scroll through much of the content, but they cannot post, ask questions or respond to any of the discussions until they have registered a username. Registration is free, however, and doesn't take long to complete. New members can join at www.selfstoragetalk.com/register.php.
Self-Storage Talk is the official online forum of Inside Self-Storage, the producer of self-storage publications, conferences and tradeshows, and the Self-Storage Training Institute, an online education portal for industry managers and owners.
The forum currently contains nearly 23,000 posts, 2,850 discussion threads and 3,040 registered users.
