Some exciting SpareFoot developments have unfolded lately. We’ve partnered with two other leading self-storage directory sites: SelfStorageDeals.com and SelfStorageFinders.com. Now our advertising network is the largest in the self-storage industry— larger than all of our competitors’ combined (according to Compete.com, March 2011). This is an exciting milestone for a local Austin start-up to reach in a $22.6 billion industry. Self storage is actually larger than both the U.S. recorded music and movie industries in terms of gross sales. Boom.
SelfStorageFinders.com is the latest addition to the rapidly growing SpareFoot Network, which includes other well-known sites like SelfStorage.com, Apartments.com and uShip.com. These partners utilize our extensive database of over 5,000 storage facilities nationwide, as well as a user-friendly interface that makes it easy for consumers to find, compare and reserve storage units online. Listed facilities benefit from SpareFoot’s pay-for-performance model— they only pay when a tenant moves in after booking a unit through a site in the network.
“As key players in this milestone for SpareFoot, we’re excited to be a part of what is now the largest online marketplace for self-storage, said Matt Price, owner of SelfStorageFinders.com. “Through this partnership, we will generate even more exposure for our listed storage facilities. Meanwhile, it’s easier than ever for our consumer visitors to find and compare all of the best storage options in one convenient place online.”
“This milestone is incredibly exciting, and we’re eager to take our ideas and products even further in the self-storage industry,” he said. “Our goal is to help make consumers’ search for storage as simple as possible. In doing so, we can help storage facilities improve their online visibility and generate more tenants through smart online marketing.”
P.S.— Lead411 has deemed us one of the Hottest Austin Tech Companies! Yet another reason to pat ourselves on the back. Alright, we’ll stop now.
