Hi Kyle and congrat on your grand opening of your coworking space.
Me too I’m in the same situation as you are. I’m ready at 80% with the space (today installation of air conditions…) and will open in mid August.
I will plan visit and pre-enroll in June-July and opening only in mid-Aug as I’m taking my last vacation trip to Hawaii as an employee (still at this time I’m writing) in July (my company free trip), then will be back for the opening and as an entrepreneur (quit job).
I’ts been 2 months since I’ve started.
I’m also interested as well as Kyle for marketing solutions from experience coworking managers here.
I don’t plan to do Facebook ads as it is too wide for my local area. I want to really focus or target local independant entrepreneurs.
I will contact local universities and share my space so students that start a new career as an entrepreneur can join my coworking place.
I plan to advertise on online classified ads, have a meetup event or contact local meetup groups.
I think you really must focus on your target clients. Coworking is a niche market. Can be mom at home, freelancers…
It’s weird because I’ve been years in marketing and advertising (my main job) for companies and for myself I have no clues on how to do marketing for coworking! Simply incredible! Might come with ideas but need your help and advices.
Kyle I’ve visit your site and FB page and I suggest you add pictures of your coworking spaces, desk… so people have an idea where they will work. It’s like selling in real estate, the more nice pictures you have the more they will be interested.

First wanted to thank everyone who participates here as you have helped us tremendously while working on our plans to open GoWork.
Check us out at www.goworkcowork.com. If you have any feedback on the site, we would love it.
So far we are just getting started but have run both Adwords and Facebook ads to get some awareness going. We’ve been setting up tours and getting people interested. If anyone has had good luck marketing on FB or Google, we’d love to discuss what works and what doesn’t. Diving into both opening a business while marketing it has been challenging but a ton of fun as well.
We’ll keep you updated on how we’re doing and any good ideas that come from our operation.
