Self-Storage Talk: A Community That Cares! Really!

We’ve boasted about the wonderful-ness of Self-Storage Talk forum on the blog pages numerous times. We’ve written about how forum members swap stories, offer each other advice and occasionally vent about customers, bosses and co-workers.

Last week, forum members pulled together to help the son of a family member. SST Moderator Storman’s son plays high school football. When the team was in the running to be the featured “Game of the Week” on a local TV station's website, he asked his forum friends to vote via the Web. If featured, the two schools playing would also receive $500 from Wells Fargo.

“Our school district is in such dire straits that they canceled all high school sports this past summer, but the outpouring of financial support from the community and athletes allowed sports to continue, at least for fall sports. We need every penny we can get,” Storman wrote on the forum.

The outpouring from the forum was AMAZING. Not only did forum members vote, they voted multiple times. Hopefully, the Self-Storage Talk forum members contributed to the team’s win. Yes, it was only a simple website vote, but had it been a charity or fundraiser, I’m positive forum members would have gotten on board to help.

The Self-Storage Talk community has swelled to more than 2,000 members. If you’re not an SST member, I encourage you to sign up and see what all the talk is about. Membership is free and only takes minutes. If you have questions about marketing, a legal issue or just want to relate a funny story, SST is the place to do it.

If you’re a “lurker,” join in the discussions. Your opinion is valued. That’s one of things that’s so great about the forum—the diverse views from people of all walks of life. And if you’re a regular forum contributor, THANK YOU for being a part of this incredible community!
