Oneupweb Named a 2010 Michigan Economic Bright Spot

Oneupweb Named a 2010 Michigan Economic Bright Spot

Corp! Magazine recognizes the vitality of Oneupweb as the digital marketing leader continues to grow and give back to their community.

Traverse City, MI (PRWEB) May 4, 2010

More than 10 years ago Oneupweb (http://www. oneupweb. com) Founder and CEO Lisa Wehr started a small online marketing agency in her basement. She had only four employees. Now, Oneupweb is a nationally recognized leader and innovator in digital marketing with over 40 employees. They remain and are committed to operating as a Michigan-based company.

"Traverse City is where we live, where we work and where we play. We've made a home for ourselves here, and have vowed to keep the company in Michigan," says Oneupweb Founder and CEO Lisa Wehr. "We feel honored Corp! Magazine has recognized us for our growth and our dedication to the state of Michigan."

That recognition came in the form of being honored as one of Corp! Magazine's 2010 Michigan Economic Bright Spots. Michigan's largest business magazine recognized Oneupweb as a Michigan-based company that continues to shine. Since the founding of Oneupweb in 1996, the company has flourished into one of the nation's leading digital marketing agencies with a goal of giving back to their home state.

Perhaps the best example of Oneupweb doing just that came in the form of their One for the Road: Operation Michigan (http://onefortheroad. oneupweb. com) tour in August 2009. Understanding the challenges Michigan businesses are facing, Wehr and a group of employees packed into a 1970's motor home and traveled around the state. They made stops in four different cities, providing free digital marketing services to any Michigan company that met them along the way.

"The One for the Road tour was a truly rewarding experience. It was a simple concept of a Michigan company giving aid, advice and inspiration to other Michigan companies," states Wehr. "Watching business owners and professionals become more confident in their marketing strategies put a huge smile on all our faces, and that was all the reward we needed."

And as Corp! Magazine has pointed out; Oneupweb is certainly serving as a bright spot for the state.
