Over A Decade In the Making

Upright may be a new agency, but our roots were planted in 2008 by the founders of Adept Marketing. They disrupted digital marketing by placing measurement and accountability at the forefront of their business model. Today, Adept Marketing is a sought-after, award-winning agency that yields measurable growth. With Upright's launch, the founders are disrupting public relations by building an agency focused on trust. Existing public relations agencies aren't equipped to maximize the currency of the next decade. Upright's deep digital marketing roots give the agency the ability to elevate public relations yielding impactful results that build trust.

New But Not Unproven

While Upright may be a new company, the team behind it has proven time and time again to be reliable, dependable and more than capable of building trust for brands. But don’t take our word for it (because we believe in third-party validation). Hear it directly from the people who worked with our team members.
