We literally packed into my 1970's motor home and drove around the state offering our digital marketing consultation services for free. It was a great event.

Who in their right mind gives away their knowledge and expertise for free? Well, according to Oneupweb Founder and CEO Lisa Wehr, that's just good business. And it's that frame of mind that was recently honored by the 2010 Communitas Awards.
"We wanted to give back to the community, helping other Michigan companies in the way we know best. So we came up with the One for the Road: Operation Michigan tour," explains Wehr. "We literally packed into my 1970's motor home and drove around the state offering our digital marketing consultation services for free. It was a great event."
The Communitas Awards agrees. The judges found that Oneupweb clearly exhibits the spirit of communitas, a Latin word that means people coming together for the good of a community.
"What an inspiring story," says Communitas Director Ed Dalheim. "We all share our skills and resources with our families, but it takes a little extra effort and creativity to share with our communities. If we would all put forth that effort, we could fix our problems instead of running away from them."
And Wehr agrees.
"The One for the Road tour wasn't about marketing Oneupweb or trying to get new clients. It was purely about a Michigan business helping other Michigan businesses," she says. "It was a great thing to see those owners and professionals who participated leave with a strategic plan and a little more hope."
