Support Nextdoor Neighbors During Spring Cleaning Season

Once winter officially comes to an end, it’s time to get started on spring cleaning – an annual tradition for neighbors everywhere. Nextdoor neighbors are extremely enthusiastic about spring cleaning, with conversations starting on the platform as early as February. 

From cleaning supplies and services to yard sales, neighbors discuss a variety of spring cleaning-related topics. More specifically, over two-thirds of all cleaning-related conversations on the platform are about donations or yard/garage sales1. Reach neighbors already in an active mindset by advertising your brand or product in For Sale & Free - a contextually relevant, trusted, and high-intent marketplace within the newsfeed.
