SpareFoot debuts blog for self-storage industry partner SpareFoot has rolled out a new blog devoted to news and analysis about the self-storage industry.

The SpareFoot Storage Beat is a one-stop destination for information about what’s happening in the self-storage industry. Self-storage topics that’ll be covered include public companies, private companies, industry trends, real estate development, facility acquisitions, and hirings and promotions.

The main reporter for The SpareFoot Storage Beat is Alexander Harris, SpareFoot’s in-house journalist covering the self-storage industry.

“In the United States, self-storage represents a $24 billion industry, and it’s an industry that continues to grow. The SpareFoot Storage Beat promises to leave no stone unturned in its thorough reporting on the self-storage industry,” Harris said.

Also contributing to The SpareFoot Storage Beat are freelance journalists from around the U.S., along with myself.

The introduction of The SpareFoot Storage Beat doesn’t mean that The Storage Facilitator is disappearing. To the contrary, The Storage Facilitator is sticking around, but its focus is shifting.

Now, The Storage Facilitator will concentrate much more on supplying information and advice designed to help self-storage owners, operators and managers grow and improve their businesses. A variety of subjects will continue to be addressed on the blog, such as facility security, marketing, hiring practices and revenue management.
