If you’ve been thinking about getting some technical marketing help and are wondering if you should reach out to us, you’ve come to the right place.
We’re ready to talk and even if UpBuild doesn’t end up being the right fit, we’d love to help you find someone who is. If you’re ready to start a conversation, you can skip to the fun part now.
Working With UpBuild
Our goal with every engagement is to become an embedded part of your team. We want to help you reach your goals, provide the technical marketing support you need, and just generally try to make your work life easier in whatever way we can.
Working with UpBuild is like having a Director of Digital Optimization on your team. You’ll have a dedicated Senior Marketing Strategist (a complete expert in SEO, analytics, CRO, and more) on your account. They’ll serve as your account manager and be the person doing the heavy lifting day-to-day. Above and beyond that, your account lead will also have a battle-tested support team to collaborate with and provide backup as needed.
All of our engagements have a 3-month minimum* and average out to around $7,500 per month (for more on how we scope and price engagements, read “Our Discovery Process” below).
Ready to roll? Get in touch.
* Ask about “UpBuild Ad Hoc” if you need help with a more advanced and/or technical short-term project. We’re always interested in tackling special challenges and can waive engagement minimums to do so.
Our Discovery Process
Here on the web, moving quickly can be critical. However, it’s just as important that we take the time to ensure that there’s a great mutual fit. Our new client discovery process can take anywhere from 3–6 weeks, but every day spent here pays dividends further down the road.
Here’s a basic chronology of what our process and timeline look like:
- Discovery Call (within 1 week)
After you fill out the contact form on our site, we’ll reach out to set up a time to chat with you. We’ll use this time to pick your brain, get a sense of your marketing goals and history, and tell you a bit about who we are and how we like to work.
- Team Vote (3 business days)
When you engage with UpBuild, you have our guarantee that the team working on your account is going to be excited about it. We assure you of that because we vote on every client. We allow each team member to weigh in anonymously on Effectiveness (can we get great results?), Alignment (can we honor our values while doing the work?), and Interest (are we intrigued by the subject matter?). If we see a great fit across all three, we know we can do some really exceptional work together.
- Optimization Discovery (1 week)
We’ll spend a week exploring your website and building out a custom engagement plan for you. We’re not going to try to get you to buy our “Platinum SEO Package” because we don’t have one; we customize every engagement plan to your site and your needs.
- Proposal & Pricing (2 days)
We’ll build out a formal proposal for you and determine engagement pricing based on our recommended plan. For a general feel for our pricing, explore our Pricing page.
- Proposal Review & Feedback (3 days)
We consider every proposal that goes out to be a V1 and we want to hear your feedback. Based on your thoughts, we can tweak the proposal and/or plan as needed until everything feels well aligned.
- Mutual Acceptance (1 day)
Sign on the dotted line — we keep paper use to a minimum and you can do this all online. Welcome to the future! Once mutually accepted, we’ll give you a PDF copy of the proposal, get you configured in our systems, and send out the first invoice.
- Kickoff Scheduling (1–2 weeks): We’ll schedule a formal kick off so we can introduce you to your UpBuild team. This is when the fun begins!
