About Kudos Media

Kudos Media is a Sydney-based content marketing and marketing automation agency. We craft powerful narratives, create and manage communication platforms and tailor delivery to drive engagement. Every campaign is built upon audience research and insight before being delivered using best-practice digital marketing technology in tune with content algorithms.

Director and founder, Tom Haynes, has over 15 years’ industry experience and is creatively driven yet intrinsically commercial.

We push the limits, but we’ll take a hard look over the edge before we leap. We are passionate. We are motivated and we will go the extra mile to deliver for our clients and their audience.

The foundations for our success are in understanding our clients’ businesses as well as their market so as to produce inspiring and targeted content on relevant delivery platforms. Prompt and punctual project delivery, campaign transparency and clear, concise communications are the cornerstones of the business.

Our vision

To become a leading Sydney media and marketing house for sourcing the finest information driven and awe-inspiring stories, purposefully delivered with impeccable finish through creatively exciting platforms. We strive to inspire passion and emotion and to facilitate change through pushing boundaries and never settling for second best, either for our clients or their audiences.

Our philosophy

We believe in honesty and transparency through all facets of our business. We believe you will engage our services because you want outstanding results, so we make damn sure that is exactly what we produce. We make sure we’re having fun; creativity thrives on it. We aren’t afraid to take risks, but we’ll take a good hard look first. We under-promise and over-deliver. We believe in the fourth estate and ethics in journalism.  And we believe in the power of stories.
