Inside Self-Storage has revamped and reset its new Best of Business choice-opinion poll, originally launched on April 15. After feedback from participants about the online voting process, it was determined that a more secure user-verification procedure should be incorporated. Any votes made prior to May 20 have been nullified, and a more protected process has been established for the final collection of votes.
Voters are now verified via e-mail address as well as IP address. After confirming their e-mail address, they can proceed to vote in as many Best of Business categories as they wish, but they may only vote one time in each category.
The original award categories remain unchanged. Industry professionals will have the opportunity to choose their favorite companies in nearly 30 competitive areas such as Most Innovative Product, Best Customer Service, Best Self-Storage Door and many others. Voting is open to all self-storage professionals.
Voting takes place on InsideSelfStorage.com through June 30. The results will be published online on Nov. 1 and in the November and December 2011 editions of ISS magazine. Best of Business winners will also be honored during a ceremony at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, March 14-16, 2012.
For more than 20 years, ISS has provided informational resources to self-storage owners, managers, developers and investors. Its educational offerings include a monthly magazine, bi-annual tradeshows, an extensive website, an education institute and Self-Storage Talk, the industry’s largest online community.
