Posted on Jun 6 2013 - 12:53pm by Tony Gonzalez

One of the great benefits of the Internet is the ability for people to hold – and attend — online webinars. “Attending” an online webinar is much cheaper than going in person to meetings because expenses like airplane tickets, hotels, and per diem for food are not incurred.

There are two upcoming webinars that are of interest to the owners and managers of self storage facilities. They will find their time well spent by virtually attending these free webinars.

The first webinar will be held Wednesday, June 19, 2013, at 2:00 p.m. eastern time (1:00 p.m. central time, 12 p.m. mountain time, and 11 p.m. Pacific time). It is sponsored by the MiniCo Insurance Agency, LLC. MiniCo provides specialty insurance and products for the self storage industry.
Bill Hipsher is the presenter. He has over 18 years of experience in commercial real estate including development, property management, and oversight. He spent 6 years as the director of business development for His responsibilities there included social marketing, search engine optimization (SEO) public relations, and supervising content creation teams.

The topic for Hipsher’s webinar is “5 Ways the Internet Can Drive Rentals and Build Revenue for Your Facility.” He will discuss the evolution of online marketing within the self storage industry, current best practices, ‘must haves’ for online marketing, and preparing for the future and ‘hedging your bets with online marketing that may yield huge future benefits.’   Those interested in attending this webinar can go here to register.

Two other issues of interest to self storage owners and operators are tenant insurance and other sources of income. The Tennessee Self Storage Association (TNSSA) will hold a free webinar on Tuesday June 25, 2013 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. eastern standard time to discuss these two topics. Eddie Johnson, Tennessee Self Storage Association president, will be the presenter.

The TNSSA has worked to pass SB1147 and HB980 (limited license for the sale or offer of tenant insurance). Their webinar will explain what the passage of these bills mean and help self storage owners and managers find out if they are in compliance with the new law. Several storage owners will also share what they are doing to increase their financial bottom line.

Registration details will be announced. Those interested can visit the TNSSA webpage to find out more information.
