Lake Leelanau, MI (PRWEB) November 15, 2006
Oneupweb is the Best Search Engine Marketing Vendor, according to the results of ClickZ.com's Marketing Excellence Awards 2006 released today. The ClickZ Marketing Excellence Awards recognize the technologies, companies and campaigns that made a positive difference in the online marketing industry in 2005, moving the industry forward by providing brilliant examples of what can be accomplished. Winners and finalists were nominated and selected by ClickZ readers and editors in online voting. Oneupweb, a leading national search engine optimization (SEO), paid search marketing (SEM) and podcasting firm, has set an industry record with three wins and four nominations in four years.
"Every year, our competition for this award grows in number and knowledge," explains Oneupweb CEO, Lisa Wehr. "Being in search marketing already means you're on the cutting edge. Leading our industry requires more than visibility; we have to deliver on our reputation because there are hundreds, if not thousands, of competitors trying to take our place." No other search engine marketing finalist for the ClickZ Marketing Excellence award has been nominated as many times as Oneupweb, giving a clear indication of Oneupweb's ability to consistently stay ahead.
Wehr credits her team with three critical characteristics that propel its ongoing success: innovation, collaboration and perception. Oneupweb has developed advanced technology that allows its managers to focus on client strategy. Proprietary tools include ROI Trax® marketing analytics, ONESource™ paid management technology and the recent, breakthrough podcast tracking technology, PodTractor™. The company's flat structure and flowing facilities encourage communication and collaboration across all departments. And, Oneupweb trains project managers to think like its clients and apply every effort against a focused, tailored strategic plan based on client objectives.
Additional accomplishments over the same timeframe include:
- First to invent podcast analytics that can track individual iTunes subscriber behavior 2006
- First to provide optimization insight on podcasting--Principles of Optimizing Podcasts (also presented at eCom eXpo, Oct. 2006)--and the first to offer SEO and SEM papers via podcasts

"Repeatedly, clients tell me that our team gets more out of an hour than anyone they work with," says Wehr. "And that's our goal: satisfied, successful clients. I believe that our team truly sees things from the client's perspective and they never quit looking for improvements. That Oneupweb passion, commitment and high-touch level of service--that's what makes me proudest. And that's what keeps us ahead."
