We believe in results.
When Uptrade Media first started, we aimed to improve business-to-business barter with an innovative new cryptocurrency.
Guess what? It didn't sell, but it didn't matter.
We kept re-inventing ourselves until we found what did sell, and we're getting even better at it by the day.
Each client we work with is given a full consultation on the opportunities a new web-facing solution can create, and how they can utilize their new Uptrade tools to achieve better results. Our duty as your total digital platform creator doesn't end when the platform is finished- it's just starting.
Our goal is to fully integrate your product and brand into multiple facets of your customer's life over a period of time.
Present them with the content they want, and where they want it. It all starts with your digital representation. When they look for you, what are you showing them?
Even further, once they're looking, how do you get them to buy? Smart calls-to-action, credible branding, and data analytics. Empirical evidence and historical feedback are smart starting points for any design project, but what happens next?
Take digital marketing to the next level and maximize sales through interactive feedback testing. Modify the digital experience as the data shows needed direction, and create a digital playground for consumers that makes them spend more money right now.
Born in the Queen City
Uptrade Media was founded in September of 2017 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
For founder and CEO Ramsey Deal, choosing his hometown to put down business roots was an easy choice.
There were more glamorous choices, sure. It's been well over a hundred years since Cincinnati was a true leader in innovation, or viewed as a pinnacle of modern civilization. Competing cities offer more amenities, better weather, or larger investment pools to attractive startups.
Why here, then?
There's a unique energy in this city. A collective desire to regain what was once lost, and expand beyond it.
Starting with the rejuvenation of the Central Business District and Over-The-Rhine, life is being restored to the downtown area for the first time in a century. Companies are evolving to today's modern standards of business, and local governments are giving them the green light to make change.
For those of us who planted our flag here, Cincinnati is an opportunity to create something. Neighborhoods that were once derelict and abandoned now teem with life; neighbors work together to reduce crime and improve the community.
Uptrade Media proudly supports our community as a partner of Grant Park Over-The-Rhine. We're teaming up with other local organizations to improve the quality and usability of public parks and private real estate in the historic area north of Liberty Street in OTR.

Cincinnati is our home, but it's also our path into the future.
