OUR STORY

Create/Captivate has one heck of an origin story, but in the interest of time (and space on this page), the gist will have to do.
Founder Kaycee McCoy has a wild passion and talent for digital marketing, but a decade ago she found herself working in toilet paper sales before getting a very random opportunity to start providing help to a small business owner. After a few short months she decided to officially abandon her full-time job and dive headfirst into entrepreneurship (maybe just a *smidge* sooner than she was truly ready for).
In March of 2017, Happy Kaycee Productions was reborn as Create/Captivate Digital Marketing. In the three years since then, C/C has seen incredible growth and we’ve had the opportunity to work with some of the very best humans around. As of 2020, our team now has four regular employees, and each addition has made C/C’s offerings more robust with the ability to help an ever-wider group of clients.
It wasn’t a straight line that got us here, and it won’t ever be one going forward, but that’s what makes us such a strong team. We pride ourselves on the resiliency, creativity, transparency, and candidness that allows us to help our clients in the best way possible. If you’re looking for honest opinions and powerhouse experts, Create/Captivate is ready to help!
Very few entrepreneurial ventures pop out of the ground fully formed and beautiful, and Create/Captivate is no exception. Founded in 2010 as Happy Kaycee Productions, C/C went through a turbulent five years of ups and downs before almost calling it quits, only to suddenly experience a series of chance encounters and one incredible opportunity for Kaycee to attend the Inc 5000 Conference as part of the Military Entrepreneur Delegation. Suddenly this solopreneur found herself with all the tools and motivation she needed to pick herself up, dust herself off, and launch her company forward to all kinds of new heights.
“We pride ourselves on the resiliency, creativity, transparency, and candidness that allows us to help our clients in the best way possible.”
Create/Captivate is highly involved in the community, especially in the Historic Ghent neighborhood of Norfolk, VA, and it’s not uncommon to see us wandering through events enjoying the festivities and taking pictures. Our services now include everything from social media audits, consulting, and full branding, to photography, copywriting, web design, and a dozen other options in between. Kaycee also offers one-on-one training, workshops, and speaking engagements. We are truly your one-stop shop for all things digital marketing.
