Why are we here? To provide digital marketing that works

upriseUP was formed from the belief that digital marketing needed to change. New technologies were still commonly untapped and there was significant opportunity for greater accountability and more collaborative working.


Digital marketing agencies needed to be better.


Our name was chosen because it indicates the disruptive revolution that we want to bring to digital marketing, as well as the continuous improvement in the results we get. We have come a long way since our formation in 2011 – although we still work with many of the clients that have been with us since the beginning!


Now, we take pride in being ahead of the curve, with a focus on continuously improving performance. Data is a core asset in digital marketing and we utilise this data at every step of our campaigns to test, learn, succeed and drive outstanding results for our clients. Throw in a dollop of creativity and you have the upriseUP team.

Arrow in Target Icon

Make an impact

We are driven to discover what will really make a difference to our clients’ businesses and then to continuously improve it.


Very much at the core of our success has been our growing team. Across upriseUP we have a range of skills and experiences and a common unified goal: to unlock the full potential of digital marketing for every client. The three things we look for in every employee are:

  • A passion for digital marketing
  • Extreme talent
  • A logical problem-solving mindset

As an agency we place a significant amount of focus on the data and utilising that to optimise campaigns. Our people reflect that focus, several are Maths and Science grads, but everyone has something of the curious scientist about them. Examining results, hypothesising, making amends, testing, learning and adapting is at the heart of what we do.
