Ben Vestal featured on local radio show!

September 21st, 2010

Recently, Argus President Ben Vestal had the opportunity to discuss the self storage asset class on Radio Colorado Network’s 1060 AM “Business for Breakfast” show.  Ben spoke about the investment climate for self storage properties and how it compares to other types of real estate assets.  This was a great opportunity to spread the word about self storage and to let people know how an Argus Broker Affiliate can help them find an investment that is right for them.  Check out the link below to listen to the interview!

Is Your Business Taking Advantage of Facebook?

September 2nd, 2010

Ok everyone, by now you all know how popular the social networking site Facebook has become.  What began as a networking site for college students has now become the most popular, most talked about, and most visited site on the web.  Everyone has a Facebook page (400 Million global users to be exact) and I would be lying if I said that I didn’t check my personal Facebook page at least 5 times a day!  But if you’re a business owner, have you set up a business page?

As an article on mashable.com suggests, if you’re a business owner and you don’t have a Fan Page set up, you’re risking being left behind as more businesses shift to social network sites like Facebook (Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.).   As the administrator of Argus’ page, I am constantly posting things on our wall having to do with our self storage business.  I comment about all of our new listings and our sales. I introduce our new Broker Affiliates and I post links about upcoming self storage tradeshows and events.  Just last week Ben Vestal spoke on a Colorado morning radio talk show, “Business for Breakfast” (click here for the audio file).

Over the past few days I’ve run across a few articles about the popular site and it’s importance on your business. One such article is entitled, “11 Mind Blowing Reasons Your Company Needs Facebook; if you need any convincing that social networking is KEY to the success of your business, read it, you’ve got nothing to lose!

If you don’t even know where to begin or how to create a Business Page refer to this article for direction :)

Good Luck!
