Why businesses love Nextdoor

Nextdoor puts neighbors in front of nearby businesses. I’ve tried other platforms but they’re too big and too broad Nextdoor has helped me grow my business exponentially and about 50 to 60% of my customers are through Nextdoor.

Nextdoor has been such a pleasure to work with.  They have made it really easy to update our ads and grow into more territories. We are really excited for what’s to come from our continued partnership.

We’ve had a really good experience with Nextdoor ads. The quality of jobs we get from neighbors on Nextdoor is very high, and it’s been helpful to get the word out into local neighborhoods.

The ROI with Nextdoor is better than we’ve seen with other channels. We’ve found that leads from Nextdoor close at a much higher rate than other channels. We attribute that success to the power of recommendations from neighbors.

We've done a lot of direct mail, but Nextdoor Ads is much more effective and cost-efficient because members on Nextdoor are very committed to their communities and really want to support their local businesses.

How does billing work?

When you create a new ad, you will be billed upfront for the daily budget you select multiplied by 31 days. This amount will be automatically loaded to your account balance and ready for use once your ad is approved and begins running. 

This initial amount also becomes your “billing threshold”. Your billing threshold is the amount you will be charged once your account balance reaches zero. Each day, we'll serve your ad to as many neighbors as possible until your budget has been spent and your account balance reaches zero. If you choose a monthly plan, you can expect to be billed roughly every 31 days.

If you choose the option to customize your ad duration for less than 31 days, you will not be billed again when your ad reaches zero.
