We are blessed to be a blessing. Our team is wholeheartedly committed to giving back out of the skills, talents and resources we ourselves have freely received from God. We steward these gifts every day for those we serve, and continually commit both our time and resources to serving those in need.
CreateAthon® is one of our very favorite opportunities to give back to our community.
This is our eighth year joining other marketing agencies nationwide to host a 24-hour marketing blitz during which we gather like-minded local creative partners to provide FREE marketing services to nonprofit organizations throughout Hampton Roads.
Since becoming an official CreateAthon® partner in 2012, Proximo Marketing Strategies has worked with local partners to donate over $60,000 of marketing services to over 40 nonprofit organizations in Virginia.
This year's event will be hosted on December 7, 2021.
In the past, Proximo Marketing Strategies and our partners have provided:
- Marketing Materials and Graphic Design
- Social Media Strategies and Content
- Logo Designs and Branding Guides
- Marketing Budgets
- Website Builds and Updates
- High Level Strategy and Business Development
- Sponsorship and Fundraising Campaigns
We are excited to welcome new partners to our 2021 event that will offer:
- Professional Headshots and Team Photos
- Media, Script and Brand Messaging Strategies
Your organization should apply to CreateAthon® if:
- You are thirsty for a set of fresh eyes to help you move beyond your current season
- You have specific projects that have been stalled due to lack of manpower or funding
- You have a list of marketing to-dos that never move to the front of the line
- You feel stuck and depleted, wishing for a boost of creative energy that will move you forward
- You're lost on marketing and social media and know it's impacting your capacity to serve
- You are ready to level up on your marketing but don't know where to start
