Captivate Earns Two 2019 AMY Awards Nominations

Captivate Nominate for Two AMY Awards

March 1st, 2019 – Captivate Search Marketing has been nominated as a 2019 finalist for two AMY Award categories in Search Marketing (SEO) and Paid Search Marketing (PPC).

The AMY Awards, which are lead by the Atlanta Marketing Association (AMA), are designed to recognize local companies and professionals who have crafted innovative digital marketing campaigns and produced outstanding results for their clients.

Captivate, having submitted two search marketing campaigns for Current Pixel in SEO and PPC, has been announced a finalist in both categories. While up against two much larger digital marketing agencies in Atlanta, Captivate’s strategic display of its Search First® methodology and compelling client outcomes make it a strong contender for both awards.

The AMA’s 2019 Amy Awards program will take place at The Fairmont on March 21, 2019. You can learn more about the Awards by visiting and you can see the full roster of 2019 Finalists here

About The AMY Awards

In its 62nd year running, AMA Atlanta looks to acknowledge those who have set themselves apart as marketers who have “taken ordinary ideas, situations, and products and made them extraordinary.” The agencies and individuals behind them who have cultivated unique ideas, and have executed strategic campaigns that resulted in superior results, are what embody the spirit of the AMY’s Red Pencil award.

On Thursday, March 21, AMA Atlanta will unveil some of the best work Atlanta has to offer. In determining its finalists and soon to be winners, AMA recognizes work that transcends the status quo and has a real impact. By acknowledging those who have made their mark on Atlanta’s marketing scene during the previous calendar year, AMA will choose winners in each category to be honored with an AMY Awards Red Pencil.
