Saving Hong Kong from
ineffective Digital Marketing
It’s my business to grow yours.
Hi, my name is Amir. I’ve spent the past 10+ years working for digital marketing agencies and servicing some of the world’s most succesful companies.
One day, a friend told me about his website and how he had been spending thousands of dollars for his digital marketing with very little to no return of investment.
Inspired, I decided to do something about it. I started UPtimiser with the one goal in mind: to save clients from ineffective digital marketing.
Join me and let’s restore some balance to the world.

Finding the right digital marketer isn’t easy.
There are so many variables to consider, like whether they can actually deliver promised results or if they just charge a monthly fee with very little to no return of investment. Also you might wonder what a reasonable monthly fee might be or whether you could manage your digital marketing yourself.
The truth is, the right digital marketer can help you get a return on your investment at a fraction of the cost you’d have to spend to hire an in-house team.
Sharing this case study and the strategies I used to achieve an incredible ROI should serve as a demonstration so that you can get a better feel on my approach and my abilities to delivery great results.
