“The Self Storage Show,” an industry podcast presented by Jim Ross, owner of Self Storage Domination Management, will reach its one-year anniversary next month. To celebrate, Ross has launched a free streaming app, available in the Apple App Store and Android Market, providing access to new episodes as well as an archive. Features include the ability to mark favorite episodes and download exclusive extras including PDFs, wallpapers and bonus content. The app also allows users to download podcasts or share content, and connect with Ross via phone, e-mail, website, Facebook and Twitter.
The podcast’s more than 50 episodes provide insight to many self-storage operational topics including revenue management, marketing, lead generation and competition. They feature interviews with industry leaders including facility managers, consultants, real estate brokers, owners and others. They include discussions recorded earlier this year with speakers from the 2019 Inside Self-Storage World Expo.
“Since I launched ‘The Self Storage Show,’ I’ve learned so much by connecting with others in our industry, and that’s the goal of this podcast: for the listeners to learn and grow right along with me; to make their self-storage business as successful as possible by focusing on marketing, sales, revenue management and overall operations,” said Ross, who’s also co-founder of 3 Mile Domination Self Storage Services, which provides management, marketing, feasibility and consulting services.
Ross began his career in the self-storage industry more than 20 years ago as a facility manager. He later advanced to regional manager, overseeing properties in several states. He operated his own self-storage auction company for a time before launching 3 Mile Domination with co-founder Matthew Van Horn. The business partners also co-authored the book “Self-Storage Domination.”
