From startups to SME’s, SMB’s and large enterprise, no matter what your business size classification, there always come a time where you could be using Self Storage to help your online business grow.
We all look at the Amazon model and wish things were really that simple, but the truth is, most businesses are operating far from a dropshipping bliss, and we really do not understand the business model that Amazon has, except that the so called ‘model’ looks attractive. What is missing here is the countless years Amazon has traded and operated offering far more than just online shopping, with its successful fingers in online marketing services and databases (Alexa), web servers and services (AWS) and now in the billion dollar IoT industry, with Alexa and Echo at the forefront of home technology/entertainment, where manufacturers are using Amazon as their reason for development. They are actually more a cloud computing company than an e-commerce company, and they acquire well. That being said, a lot of online businesses use Amazon as an inspiration, and eBay too, to get themselves operating as an online business.
So, how could be using Self Storage to help your online business grow? The answer is convenient, manageable and clean storage as a solution. Using cost-effective self-storage removes one of the biggest issues that online business face, which is where to store your physical goods, while you are waiting for people to buy them.
