Self-Storage Talk Online Community Surpasses 7,000 Members


Self-Storage Talk (SST), the self-storage industry's largest online community, surpassed the 7,000 member mark this week, just one year after reaching 6,000 members in April 2013.

SST member 7,000 is a new self-storage manager who first turned to the community looking for information about facility-management software. User mhndz84 is the onsite manager for Sierra Storage in South Merced, Calif. She joined the forum after a recommendation from her facility’s general manager. “I have always worked in the customer-service field but never for a storage company, and I honestly love it!” she said.

SST members include self-storage managers, operators, owners, investors, developers and suppliers. They use the site to discuss a diverse range of topics, from day-to-day management challenges to legal issues to construction-related questions and much more. SST also includes state-specific forums, in which members can communicate about issues and developments within their local areas.

"To reach yet another milestone on Self-Storage Talk is amazing," said Amy Campbell, SST’s community manager and editor of Inside Self-Storage (ISS). "Our members are a welcoming bunch and are quick to share their knowledge with newcomers like mhndz84. Plus, they’ve truly developed a tightknit community in which they support each other through challenges and celebrate one another’s successes."

Launched in January 2008, SST is the official forum of ISS, a dynamic services company that provides publications, events and educational resources for the self-storage industry. In addition to its more than 7,000 registered members, SST features approximately 7,800 discussion threads and nearly 70,000 posts in 20 topical subforums. Registration is free at
