Getting Started With A Stand-up Desk

My Journey Into the Standing Desk While I’m not a huge believer in new years resolutions, I do find that the holidays allow you to take a step back, and reflect on changes that you want for the future, and one of my goals was to have a sit/stand desk for 2016. After some research, I decided on the Ikea Skarsta sit/stand desk (about $260 before taxes/delivery) due to it’s smaller footprint, and simple operation. In order to raise and lower the desk platform, you turn a handle that you pull out from under the desk. Having a motor would have made it easier, but it only takes 20 seconds to adjust the height and is not difficult at all. Here is what the desk looks like: 5 Tips for Starting To Use A Standing Desk […]

1UP has some fun with archery tag

Life is a beach We are a work hard play hard type of agency. Today, from 6.30am to 9am, we went to 6pack for a corporate team building event and ran around in the sand while playing archery tag. Breakfast Television was filming so you can see us in action: http://www.btvancouver.ca/videos/4027777644001/ Highlights At 0:25: You can admire Julien’s teasing dance followed by a failed attempt at catching an arrow. At 0:45: Phil goes for an aggressive run, jumps while firing an arrow, followed by some screaming from an opponent. I believe a successful head shot was to blame for that. […]

One Year of Digital Marketing

We are very thankful to all of our clients as 1UP Digital Marketing is celebrating its first anniversary this month! We thought it would be a great opportunity to look back on the past year of Digital Marketing. We will highlight a few of the big changes in SEO. SEO Algorithm Changes (Thanks Moz for the more detailed breakdown) Hummingbird came in late 2013 with an increased focus on semantic search with rich mark up. Sites that were well structured, and used Schema.org as a guide saw a bump in traffic. In the end of 2013, we saw the first decline in Authorship listings. About 15% of queries were removed. Page layout  became a more important aspect of ranking in early 2014, with Google favouring pages without too many ads above the fold. […]
