    Thumbs up SST Membership Drive and Referral Contest: Win Free Prizes!

    Hey SSTers!

    I am excited to announce SST’s second membership drive and referral contest. We are getting very close to surpassing 6,000 registered members, and we want to blow past that as we converge on Las Vegas, April 2-5, for the Inside Self-Storage World Expo. By show’s end, I’d like to see us pushing close to 6,300. As per our last drive, we’re going to make this interesting and fun thanks to the generosity of our sponsor:

    Here’s how it works:

    1. New member sign-ups! Between Thursday, March 7, and 4 p.m. (PDT) on April 4, any U.S.-based self-storage professional who registers and is approved as a legitimate new member to Self-Storage Talk will be eligible to enter a drawing to win one of three great prizes:

    • A brand-new iPad 3 (16GB, Wi-Fi only)
    • The winner’s choice of a Manager Essentials or Owners Essentials 10-DVD education pack, which will be recorded during the expo
    • $50 in Macy’s gift cards


    IMPORTANT: To enter the drawing, new members must register for SST through the website. Once confirmed via automated e-mail (this occurs after the second SST e-mail you receive), each new member must post the words “New Member” as a reply in this thread. During the ISS Expo in Las Vegas, new members can also register for the site at the ISS booth during exhibit hours.

    2. Referrals are encouraged! To make this a celebration of all those who are already contributing members, we will also make U.S.-based referring members eligible for the drawing. To be entered as a referral, new members must also identify the referring member by their exact username when they post their “New Member” reply to this thread. Simply have them write: “New Member. Referred by: [Your Username Here].” We must be able to identify the referrer as an existing SST member to make them eligible. Each individual referral will earn the referring party one raffle entry. Yes, this means referring members can have more than one entry into the drawing. The more referrals you get, the better your odds for a prize.

    3. U.S. self-storage professionals only. No one outside the industry and no consumers. Do not attempt to register a duplicate account; we will catch you. You may encourage co-workers and family members to sign up, as long as they work in the industry. Anyone found to skirt the rules is subject to site discipline and will be made ineligible for the drawing.

    The thread will close at 4:01 p.m. PDT on April 4, 2013. No late posts will be considered.

    We will draw the winners at 4:30 PDT, in the ISS booth (#729), on Thursday, April 4. The winners will be announced in the expo hall by SST username only and invited to come to the ISS booth for a photo. Winners will also be announced in this thread after they are drawn on April 4. Prizes will be sent to the winners after the show. You do not have to be present to win.

    Finally, by entering the drawing, you are agreeing to all of the terms and conditions listed below. Please give them a read.

    That’s all there is to it! So get your referral on!
