About Our Company and Leadership


Our marketing agency is family-owned and operated by brothers John Kortes and CJ Kortes. With prior freelance experience building websites, they joined forces in 2011 to start The Kortes Group, LLC, the parent company to The SEO Contractor. After only a few months of building websites, they decided their customers needed more comprehensive online marketing. They expanded their services to add SEO, Social Media, and PPC, with a substantial focus on search engine optimization. To this day, The SEO Contractor believes first and foremost in the power company websites at the top of Google.

With John and CJ's ten-plus years of digital marketing experience, they lead a team of contractors and partners who make sure driving your new business is the number one goal. Our company believes the best person for the job is not always down the street; therefore, we work with professionals remotely throughout the united states. Our company competes with the most prominent digital agencies, but we keep small business values, so our customers get the results they deserve.

Time after time, customers come to us after the horrible experiences they have with larger firms. It's incredible how many corporate marketing companies cannot provide transparency, compassion, or results for small businesses. Businesses have come to us with horrible Google rankings, yet they have been paying for SEO for a while. We also have new customers who often tell us that no one has ever actually explained SEO the way we have. It's pretty strange the lack of transparency other agencies provide.

Since the beginning, many local businesses have been with us because we give them both results and transparency. If you want to see it for yourself, contact us for a free consultation today. We bet that no one has ever explained SEO to you as we will.
