Saint Louis, MO (Vocus) October 13, 2010
Captiva Marketing, a BBB Accredited Business, was recently recognized by the business monitoring organization for its business and customer service practices. Captiva will be presented with the 2010 Torch Award for Business Ethics at a luncheon in October. The company is being recognized along with other St. Louis businesses and organizations such as Monsanto, Commerce Bank and The Magic House among the 10 companies and 2 charities receiving the award.
“Captiva Marketing’s business model is centered on becoming viable marketing partners for our clients so that we can use our talents to help them build sustainable businesses,” said Mark Forst, President of Captiva Marketing. “We have learned that the best way to grow our business is by keeping our clients’ interests in mind first. We try to recommend services that we think will make measurable differences for companies and will be worth the investment of our time. In essence, if we can help our clients succeed; they will in turn become better clients.”
This method of doing business has helped Captiva Marketing continually grow throughout the years. Founded in 2002 by Mark Forst and Bill Brasser, the search engine marketing firm began with a handful of clients. Today, many of these original clients still remain with the company that has grown to 21 employees with five company departments. Captiva Marketing maintains a high level of customer service and ethical business practices by recommending initiatives based on solid research and testing in order to determine the best course of action for each company.
“The one thing I think says a lot for our company and the way we work with clients is the fact that much of our new business is gained through word of mouth and recommendations. Activities like search engine optimization, web design and social media are still very confusing concepts for many companies. By helping these organizations understand the methodology of our work and placing a high value on results, we have generated both satisfied clients and a committed team of employees that feel good about what they do,” said Forst.
