Kudos Media is a Sydney-based content marketing and digital marketing automation agency that began in early 2014. Using strategic foundations and the principals of behavioural science, we craft powerful narratives, create and manage communication platforms and optimise delivery to drive engagement and walk people through the path to purchase.

Campaigns are built upon deep analysis 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, along with prompt and punctual project delivery, campaign transparency and clear, concise communications.


  • We initially engaged Kudos Media to perform a comprehensive overhaul of our entire digital communications - starting with a detailed strategy to feed website content, design, management and distribution. We are thrilled with the results and continue to engage Kudos for ongoing communications management.
