    Content Darwinism°

    We believe that purposeful measurement applied to digital content maximises a brand’s return on content investment. Content Darwinism is how we ensure that every single piece of content is performing its specific role in the path to purchase. A proprietary algorithm, content strategy, audit, and measurement processes allow us to continuously optimise a brand story in real time.

Our History

To know where you’re going, you must know where you came from

Seventeen years ago, five forward-thinking agencies joined forces to create an alliance in Direct Marketing and CRM. Calling themselves Proximity to reinforce their dedication to bringing brands and consumers closer together, those offices organically grew into a premier global agency network of world-class creative and technology experts. Today, we share the same passion as our founders to leverage data and help our clients build deep, personalised relationships with customers in the modern, connected world.
