Since 2009, Oakes Writing has been helping small business owners with their content marketing online. During that time we have helped thousands grow their digital footprint and their business. Some we have helped include:

  • Lawyers/Law Firms
  • Real Estate Investors

Instead of a general library, we add industry-specific articles based on what we have learned over the years. Just as no two industries are exactly alike, their approach to online marketing often requires small yet important differences. Many digital marketing companies today fail to take this into account when creating plans for these clients.

By providing industry-specific articles, small business owners get personalized information that suits the needs of their company directly.

We strongly encourage you to bookmark this page and return often. Also, sign up for our free weekly Blog updates so you never miss out on important content marketing information for your company.
