Our History

Our company roots can be traced to 1999 when Mark Forst became obsessed with figuring out how to rank his company's website in Yahoo...the largest search engine at the time. For nearly three years, Mark and his right-hand man, Bill Brasser, worked tirelessly to learn everything that they could about search engine marketing and make their employer's websites lead generating machines. Based on their success, they left the corporate world and started Captiva Marketing in early 2002. Learn more.
