Our Story

A little bit about the best web design & marketing agency who always provides southern hospitality!

Why we do it

Welcome! At Oak City Technology, we focus on the results that matter most for online visibility, performance and profitability.

We’re a full-service web design, development, and digital marketing company, and we’ve been providing outstanding solutions to clients in the Carolinas and across the United States for more than ten years. Located in Raleigh-Durham, NC, our office is in Research Triangle Park, the renowned hub of technical excellence.

We’ve proven that clients can outsmart rather than outspend the competition, and consistently succeed in the digital marketplace.

Utilizing the right digital platforms (and avoiding technical missteps and strategic errors) can quickly transform your business goals into realized objectives. We specialize in leveraging the right digital channels to cut through the clutter and move online audiences to action- faster, more reliably, and more affordably.

In achieving that goal, we avoid canned solutions, underperforming options, and technologies a version or two behind current needs. By implementing proven, battle-tested processes, we’ve generated valuable results for our clients. And through measuring our success by how well our clients are doing, we’ve built long term client partnerships. The core values of collaboration and teamwork will always be at the heart of what we do.
