Local Friends and Benefits

Manly Social

As locals we saw a gap in the market for an organisation to help locals connect with other locals and Manly businesses through a range of benefits, fun events and activities. Locals are the heart and soul of Manly and the foundation supporting local businesses throughout the year when tourists and visitors are gone.

We know and you know that traditional advertising doesn't work as effectively as it once did, and we all need to find new and engaging ways to connect with your target audience.

People are increasingly becoming more community minded in this world of social media and we believe social enterprises like Manly Social are the way forward.

We'd love you to get involved, here are the key benefits:

Web Enabled Social Intimacy
