Why we’re different

At upUgo Manchester, we’re not about the one-size-fits-all approach.

Our Manchester team is an ambitious, dynamic collective. We work together to craft a strong SEO strategy directly suited to your needs so we can help propel you towards success.

Originating in Bristol, the team has grown rapidly. Not too long ago, we made the journey up North to magnificent Manchester, the land of Vimto, Alan Turing, and Corrie. But more importantly, Manchester is the Northern home of digital innovation. Earlier this year, support from Dragons Den’s Imran Hakim helped us reach new heights as we found the perfect spot for our Mancunian office.

As our own company has accelerated, we’ve embraced increasing opportunities to help other businesses expand. But we’re also eager to maintain that family vibe, making everyone feel welcome from the moment they join.

We’re lucky to have a talented team of high-flyers who have experience in all areas of SEO. With the perfect mix of focus and fun, we make the most of each person’s skills — from video virtuosos who’ll captivate customers and supercharge your clickthrough rate to SEO wizards who’ll put you in the spotlight. Our combined strengths help us create inventive, high-value campaigns.

We’re not afraid to try new things. Innovation is a big part of keeping up with the fast-paced world of SEO. We make sure we’re always one step ahead of the competition.

Transparency is vital, too — we won’t use any sneaky tactics. Your business and customers are at the centre of everything we do.

Perhaps you have a key area you want to work on. Or maybe a few aspects need sprucing up. Combining our years of SEO experience, our Manchester magicians can rustle up a unique marketing strategy aligned with your business goals.

That could be matching local SEO with bold content creation to uplift your Manchester customer base. Or it might be incorporating technical SEO and video marketing alongside snappy Digital Advertising campaigns to highlight new content.

Whatever the case, and whether you’re in Manchester or farther afield, we’ll build an SEO-fuelled launchpad that ensures you shoot for the stars.

How can SEO help your Manchester-based business grow?

Search Engine Optimisation, also known as SEO, is the practice of improving your website to make it more visible in organic (free) search engine results.

When it comes to SEO, the higher up you are on a Search Engine Results Page (SERP), the better. The more people see your listing, the more likely they are to visit your page. More visits equals more business and increased sales.

Often, your website is the first place potential customers interact with your brand. We want to support you in making a great first impression to up those conversion rates with improved SEO.

For the past decade, Manchester has been going through a digital evolution, highlighting the importance of your online presence. This thriving tech hub is up and coming in a whole range of areas, from communications software to web design.

We’ll keep the momentum going and boost your brand presence and search results ranking with outstanding SEO. We’ll give you a leg-up, whether you’re embracing the wealth of opportunities Manchester has to offer or are looking to scale up to stand taller than Beetham Tower.

We want you to reach those dizzy heights and stay up there! Our upUgo Manchester team can help you achieve sustained growth, and SEO is a smart long-term option. Unlike paid media channels, investment in SEO isn’t tied to user numbers or ad-spend — it will continue generating traffic indefinitely.
