We talk geek and human (also French)

Tech skills blended with creative thinking.

Digital marketing is not just about response rates, KPIs and search engine algorithms; it’s also about people. The technical tools of the trade are worthless without a healthy dose of creativity and an innate understanding of how people use the web.

Why 1UP?

Rather than an agency, we consider ourselves as an extension of your team. Here’s what we can bring to the table.

Responsive to change

Now and then, Google likes to throw everyone a curveball. We’ll stay on top of things so you don’t have to.

Two brains for one

1UP’s two founders bring complementary skills and senior level digital marketing experience to every project.

International experience

The web is global and so are we. We work with clients in the US, Australia and UK, as well as across Canada.

Agency level service

We provide large agency-level service and skills, but in a smaller, nimble and highly cost-effective package.

Careful with money

It can be too easy to blow through your budget in no time. We take care with your marketing dollars.

Low overheads

If you want to spend less while achieving more, give us a call. Coffee’s on us (hey, we’re not total skinflints).

Work directly with digital pros

With no layers of account and project managers, you’ll always have a direct line to the people doing the work—and you can expect a fast response. Monthly reports and phone calls are the very minimum to keep your campaigns on track. In fact, you’ll get sick of hearing from us. (Just kidding… sort of.)
