Why local businesses love Nextdoor

To me, Nextdoor is an online word-of-mouth platform. If you're not plugged into the conversation on Nextdoor, you're missing an opportunity to get your customers engaged with each other. None of my other social media has had the positive business impact of Nextdoor. Not even close.

Neighborhood Sponsorships are a great way to reach your community, to build rapport, and to gain the respect and trust from your community members.

If you trust your neighbors, you trust the people they recommend. The real value [to my business] comes from what people are saying on Nextdoor, from the recommendations from the community.

Word of mouth is really big for me and that’s where Nextdoor comes in. People go "I trust what my neighbors say... tell me who a great photographer is" and they listen to that more than just an advertisement.
