WE CREATE CONNECTIONS
We’re passionate marketers and creative problem solvers, focussed on client growth through performance.
Founders Laura and Josh started Connected in 2012 – originally as a specialist digital agency, with a reputation for performance: a laser-focus on results and an obsession with the numbers sitting behind them.
As the marketing landscape has changed, so has our agency.
With the lines between traditional media and digital continuing to blur, customer journeys becoming less linear, and the need for more integrated campaigns, Connected expanded its offering to provide holistic strategy & excellence in execution across all channels.
As the lines between traditional media and digital media continue to blur, a holistic view allows us to deliver real marketing solutions to business challenges.
We've grown and expanded, but we've retained the hunger and heart of a hustling Independent.
We are now a team of over 20 passionate marketers based by the beach in beautiful Thirroul, just south of Sydney. Our unique location combined with the opportunity to work with fantastic clients has allowed us to attract some of the best marketing talent.
When you work with Connected, you draw on decades of experience from some of Australia's top agencies, publishers, tech companies and brands.
