An Office Space That Blogs and Tweets??

So everyone who reads my blog knows how much I love unique marketing ideas. Well, here's one that I thought was not only hilarious but effective. There's this vacant office space in Tucson, Arizona that tweets and blogs and has a Facebook Fan Page.  Seriously!

A Lonely OfficeThe office, called A Lonely Office, is named Ralph and says he started his foray into the online community because he's lonely and the office next door didn't password protect their Wi-Fi.  Why is Ralph online?  He's looking for friends.  I'm not making this up people.

Not only does he blog and all that, now he's hosting a networking event in the hopes of getting people into the building just so he can feel like someone was there!  He calls it his "No-Snob Hob-Nob."

Anyway, I hope you'll visit him and become his friend.  More importantly, I think he hopes you will!

Certainly seems like it would be a good idea for many to explore--if the can afford it. (But maybe that cannot afford to NOT hire a virtual assistant)

That's a really different idea that could be loads of fun! I wonder how it will turn out for the owner's of this building.

That's pretty clever.  I wonder if some one is going to hire Ralph's space as a result.

Poor Ralph. I sure hope he has made some friends since you posted this. It’s not good to be lonely!

Renae, I read about this, too.  A great example of creative marketing.  We all hope Ralph soon found an appreciative tenant!

Hi Renae,
I love that idea.  I found your blog in searching for marketing ideas to share.  I know you're not really active right now, but your archive is a gold mine.   Thanks!
