We live and work in Michigan, and we happen to like it. But large or small, every business owner in the state is facing tough times right now
Traverse City, MI (PRWEB) August 4, 2009
Be relentless. It's a simple sentence, one that is spoken inside Michigan-based digital marketing agency Oneupweb's global headquarters daily. And now, it's that attitude that they will take on the road, embarking on a 5-day tour of the state in a 1970's motor home. The goal: to help Michigan businesses makeover their online marketing plans.
"We live and work in Michigan, and we happen to like it. But large or small, every business owner in the state is facing tough times right now," explains Oneupweb CEO and Founder Lisa Wehr. "We wanted to do our part, and help Michigan business owners continue to work and operate here. And that's when we came up with One for the Road."
Wehr explains that in order to help Michigan businesses, Oneupweb is going to drive right to them. And they'll be offering their nationally recognized online marketing consultation services to Michigan businesses-for free.
"We're going to be making stops throughout Michigan, inviting businesses to meet with us for free online marketing consultation and advice," says Wehr.
She goes on to note that those who do join Oneupweb on their road tour will be given real help, the kind of help that translates into something a business owner can take back to their office that day and turn into sales.
Oneupweb's stops include:
August 18 - Ann Arbor - Gallup Park
August 19 - Lansing - Sharp Park
August 20 - Grand Rapids - John Ball Park
August 21 - Traverse City - Oneupweb Global Headquarters
According to Wehr, Oneupweb will be at these locations each day from 11am to 6pm.
And the help doesn't end there. In an effort to unite Michigan businesses, Oneupweb will be collecting business cards at the various stops to create a new, free Michigan Business Directory. The directory, Network Michigan, will be posted online.
For those companies that are unable to meet with Oneupweb, a hotline has been setup. By calling 1-877-833-0667, you can reach Oneupweb for help and advice.
"It's time to chart a new course, one that takes us back to our roots as a prosperous state filled with smiling faces, hard workers and a love for our natural surroundings. To get back to that state, we're committed to helping businesses advance their online marketing plans, despite size of budgets," says Wehr. "We're not going anywhere, and we want to make sure no other business has to, either. And we're relentless about that commitment."
Oneupweb will hold a kickoff event on August 17 at noon at the Oneupweb Global Headquarters in Traverse City.
