According to a recent report from IBISWorld, the Australian self storage industry is worth an incredible $1.1billion.
With established major players such as Kennards, Storage King & National Storage dominating about a third of the market, that leaves a significant percentage of the industry to local small storage businesses such as Gold Coast storage experts Elite Container Storage.
In the report, senior industry analyist Tristian Williams says:
“the industry has benefited from several factors, including the fact that more Australians are moving to major cities and into smaller apartments or townhouses. The report found there was an increasing demand from people relocating short-term for work or study.
Demand from business, especially smaller online retailers who need somewhere to store stock, has also risen in the past five years, he says.”

This creates an intriguing landscape in the self storage market with many fragmented local markets.
Nearly 1 million Australian’s now operating a home based business, taking advantage of the convenience, cost savings and lifestyle factors that come with working from home.
However, with these benefits comes some drawbacks in regards to privacy concerns and portraying a professional image to clients.
In recent years we have seen a steep rise in the popularity of Virtual Offices to combat these concerns. A Virtual Office provides you with a professional mailing address, dedicated business phone number with professional call answering, access to professional meeting rooms and much more.
Here’s just 3 reasons why Virtual Offices are becoming so popular:
- Lower Overheads – Compared to paying an expensive CBD lease and all of the associated costs, Virtual Offices are a fraction of the cost.
- Professional Image – Your clients will appreciate the professional meeting spaces. No more holding confidential conversations in noisy coffee shops! Additionally, having a corporate mailing address adds to the perception of a successful business.
- Privacy – Displaying your home address online can be risky. It may sound extreme but do you really want disgruntled former clients, your competition and criminals knowing where you and all of your valuable equipment is?
That’s just 3 reasons why a Virtual Office is a smart choice for home based businesses.

We’re aiming to put on a comprehensive summit in 2017 with speakers from all leading SEO and Digital Marketing Organisations sharing invaluable insights into the Australian search industry.
Quite often much of the spotlight is directed towards industry developments in the USA and Europe, however we believe that Australia has some of the brightest search engine optimisation minds in the World. A select few of these individuals will be invited to share the stage at the inaugural NSBS late in 2017.
The 2017 NSBS will be the largest of it’s kind ever seen in Australia.
