Our Company's Story

In 2011 our digital marketing agency was born as The Kortes Group, LLC by brothers John Kortes and CJ Kortes. We also formed a DBA name, The SEO Contractor, and began delivering digital marketing services to local businesses. We have been in business for ten years, and our company and our services have grown. We have expanded to New York City after one of our owners relocated to the greater New York area. Our digital marketing agency offers online marketing for your business, like websites, SEO, and PPC.

We would love local New York businesses to gain more business through online marketing. We deliver a complete marketing package, and while we work to get you to the top of Google, it also makes sense that we bring you traffic and exposure with paid ads.

John and CJ are still the head SEO specialists with ten plus years of experience each, and we lead a team of contractors and partners who make sure your business success is the top priority. New York City customers should come to us if they've had horrible experiences with larger firms. It's incredible how many marketing companies cannot provide transparency, compassion, or results for small businesses. We have seen websites come to us with horrible rankings, yet they have been paying someone for marketing work.

We love helping local New York businesses, giving them both results and transparency. See for yourself, and contact us today for a free consultation.
