About Us

Put simply, we are here to provide digital marketing that works.

Our founder, John Onion, wanted to see better digital marketing by combining extensive digital expertise with specialist sector knowledge:  A company of channel specialists with a process of working closely and openly with clients seemed the best way.


upriseUP was registered in November 2011.


In order to deliver the best campaigns, our commitment is to:


  • Stay at the top of our game. With training, research & development, recruiting the very best and always holding ourselves to account.
  • Remain nimble and agile. Avoiding high overheads and a top heavy management structure. We adapt to the technology and the needs of our clients.
  • Focus on the data. We thoroughly monitor campaigns and are constantly reviewing, tweaking, refining and pushing for that extra yard.
  • Be accountable. We ensure the data is completely transparent. If we were to miss an agreed target, we wouldn’t charge. But we don’t, because…
  • Make an impact. We are driven to discover what will really make a difference to our clients’ businesses and then to continuously improve it.

Our Growing TEAM

On the basis of our reputation we have continued to enjoyed significant growth. By the end of 2012 we moved into our office in Buckinghamshire (on the Metropolitan line). In 2016 we moved to a bigger office – and today there are twice as many people as there were then.


Very much at the core of our success has been the growing team that has contributed towards it. Across the group we have a range of skills and experiences, but we are united by a passion for digital marketing and a real desire to make it work for our clients in a way that maximises on results.

John worked at some of the UK’s largest media agencies on blue-chip clients such as BT, Intel & Barclays. Realising that traditional agencies struggled to respond to the constantly shifting digital landscape, he created upriseUP to focus on the growing needs of clients.
