HOW IT ALL
From school mates to international business partners, founders Edward Coram James and Tom Skinner have embarked on a journey of dedication and innovation.
After exploring different directions in life and living across the globe from each other, they reconnected when Ed envisioned the potential of SEO, just as Tom was seeking to pursue a more innovative role outside of his traditional agency.
What started as an intuition about the possibilities and opportunities within Search Engine Optimisation, turned into a headstart on what has become one of the largest and most prominent tools on the internet.
From one client to three, three to five, and five to fifty, Go Up has grown to be one of the most established and well-respected agencies in London, servicing big name brands and household names such as Banham, Hackett, and Arsenal Football Club.
Go Up has recently become an international agency with an office and client expansion in the United States, launching a PR branch of the agency in Los Angeles, California.
