Copy contents of current cell, make a small change, and paste it into the next column

I never use VBA but I'd like to make a shortcut to copy some text in cell A1,modify it slightly, and have it appear in B1 .
For example, in column A, I enter a message like: Go Team.
In column B, I put this message in a code snippet: "message":"Go team".
I want the cell in column B to be updated after I exit the cell in Column A.
Can any one help? Any info on how I'd install the code would help as well. I have Excel 2007.
Thank you.
