AN AUCTION DIRECTORY DESIGNED FOR SELF-STORAGE ASSOCIATIONS
Partner With Us and Grow your Association & Business
TRUTH: If you aren't on the web, you aren't visible.
★ EASY TO USE RESOURCE ★
Offer your members an easy to use, central place to list their auctions on a website that appears to be a part of your association.
★ SEARCHABLE INDEX ★
Buyers can search
by operator name, location, city, zip code, auction date, even search for specifically sought items. No more cost-limiting descriptions like "Household Goods." Now post real descriptions
of sale items ─ up to 500 characters per listing.
★ FOR SELF-STORAGE ASSOCIATIONS ★
Created in 2009 by Richard Marmor
, member of the board of directors of the Arizona Self-Storage Association
and noted authority on self-storage lien law, and James Appleton
, Technology & Communications Chair of the Arizona Association, and technical expert in website design/development and search engine optimization (SEO), this was conceived of as a tool for self-storage associations
as a benefit for members
★ THE ARIZONA EXPERIENCE ★
Originally designed for the Arizona Association, www.selfstorageauctionsaz.com
lets Arizona members reach an exponential number of buyers for little money. It currently averages 3,000 visitors every week
! Within just nine months of its debut in February of 2010, and with only word-of-mouth advertising, nearly 300,000 auction pages have been viewed . . . in a state that ranks only 20th nationally in population!
★ OUR CHANGING LAWS ★
The legal requirement to have commercially reasonable sales
, and the current trend nationally for modernized lien statutes
eliminating useless and costly classified advertising are creating a need for a means of reaching potential auction buyers.
★ FLEXIBLE PRICING ★
This resource is free to your association, or you can underwrite the low-cost service and offer it as a free benefit to members.
★ MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT ★
The site is designed to appear as a part of your organization's website, even customized to include your logo and color scheme. Use non-member listing surcharges as an incentive to build membership.
★ A REVENUE SOURCE FOR YOU ★
Your Association can earn money multiple ways. As a partner with us, non-member surcharges are returned to you. Advertising revenue is shared with you as well. On-line advertising is big business. The growing popularity of storage auctions makes the website an opportunity for non-industry advertisers to reach a healthy cross-section of consumers. And with a current average of 7 pages viewed and 4.5 minutes viewing time per visit makes this a unique and attractive advertising vehicle.
★ WE ARE YOU ★
Most importantly, we are in the self-storage business just like you, and we are members of the very active Arizona Self-Storage Association. We designed this around our responsibilities to the industry as a whole and compliance with lien laws. (We even wrote some of them!) We are now offering it to other state associations who are looking to provide the same value-added services to their membership, and as an incentive tool to grow their membership as well.
