Los Angeles, California – (The Hosting News) – May 17, 2006 – Performance web hosting company, Globat.com, has purchased advertising space on a Lancaster, PA man’s neck for an undisclosed amount.
Robert Reames, III, 27, is a father to three young girls aged 8, 5, and 2 who provide the drive and inspiration behind Robert’s tattoo idea. His wife, Jammie, is disabled and the family’s finances have been tight. After seeing previous Globat.com promotions, Robert contacted Globat.com and made his case that a permanent tattoo advertisement might help the family raise enough money to buy a car.
Ben R. Neumann, President and CEO of Globat.com commented, ”Being able to travel is important for a young family. Without access to a car, Robert’s family is forced to pay high prices for necessities at local convenience stores and have a limited range of travel, especially with three young children. Globat.com is delighted to support Robert and we’re sure he’ll have a lot of fun answering questions about his tattoo!”
Robert Reames, III said, ”I will wear Globat’s tattoo as a badge of honor, and as a representation of the distance I will go, and the commitment I am willing to make for the ones I love. My family and I are very happy, and truly grateful to the entire Globat family for this opportunity.”
Globat.com has recently launched a wave of unique sponsorships and events such as a hamburger eating challenge and a sponsored birth under the banner of ”Defying Gravity,” with the ultimate goal to launch at least one such special event in each of the 50 states.
DefyingGravity.com is dedicated to new, unique, outrageous, and sometimes slightly crazy marketing ideas and events. Globat.com founders Ben R. Neumann and Chris Ueland started this marketing trend and web site in early 2006 as part of their vision to bring new and exciting marketing trends to life, while bridging the gap between modern and traditional media. Word-of-mouth or evangelist marketing was and is in the forefront of this new and exciting venture, which plans to sponsor at least one outrageous marketing event in every one of the 50 states.

Neumann, a two-time Entrepreneur of the Year award nominee, was a pioneer of the budget web hosting industry in 1994 when he founded Icom.com, which was sold to Interliant in 1998 and is today owned by Interland.
