The Localpost story.

A note from the founder.

Kia ora, I'm Tom 👋

Over the past few years, I've noticed a growing challenge in how we connect with our local communities here in NZ. The usual channels—endless scrolling through a vast and overwhelming landscape of social media, or relying on print media that often struggles to keep pace with today's fast-moving world have highlighted a need for a more cohesive, focused approach.

And so, the seed of Localpost was planted.
Localpost has been built as the next-generation local community noticeboard for Kiwis. It is dynamic, entirely digital, and launching anew in 2024. We've designed it to be a seamless, all-in-one platform where Kiwis can effortlessly connect with the pulse of their local community.
Discover posts from your community on the latest local events, important notices, the hottest job vacancies, and sweet deals from your favourite local spots. It's all about keeping it local and genuine. No overwhelming flood of global news or viral memes to sort through—just the good stuff, the community content that you care about.

Here's the kicker: Localpost isn't just a passive experience. Create a post, share an event, or if you’re a business, promote your local special or a job opening — it's your stage to engage and inform your community. What's more, with our nifty upvote feature you're helping to highlight what's important to the community - it's like having the power to tell your local newspaper what should make the front page - now that's real community-driven curation!

Tailor your local experience: with Localpost, you're in control. Fine-tune your feed to show events, notices, deals and other posts within your chosen local radius – whether that's the cosy confines of your suburb or a broader canvas of surrounding areas. It's your local scoop, served your way.

Our Localpost journey is just taking flight, and like any new venture, we expect a few bumps along the way. If you encounter any, or if you've got an idea to make the platform better, please reach out! Your feedback is crucial for our growth and improvement, and we're committed to sharing our progress with you as we evolve.

Proudly built and run from the small southern township of Lake Hāwea (just a stones throw away from Wānaka), Localpost is a platform purpose-built for Kiwis and Kiwi communities.

So, whether you're keen to uncover the gems of your local scene, or you’re a local business ready to tap into the community's heart, Localpost is here for you.

Here's to keeping it local and making our communities shine, one post at a time.
