When Rita of Hurron Highlands in Ann Arbor, Michigan wanted to boost sales for Cheeky Spices, she started local with her Nextdoor neighbors and saw big sales.
Local business owners, casual service providers, and home service providers can all participate on Nextdoor. To list your business, first create or claim your Business Page that displays basic information about your business or services. If you offer casual goods or services (dog walking, babysitting) you will need official business documents to verify your Business Page in order to post messages to the nearby neighborhood newsfeed. If you do not have these business documents, you can promote your services from your member account using the new “Neighbor Made” or “Neighbor Services” options. Learn more here.
Nextdoor is the perfect place for businesses to connect with their most valuable, engaged, local clients. Share special offers and exclusive announcements to help connect directly with customers. Use this help article to quickly find tips on everything you need, from getting started to running ads on Nextdoor. Nextdoor Business Pages help local brands connect to their surrounding community and build their local reputation. Business owners can create Nextdoor Business Pages to advertise local deals, post to their neighborhoods, sell gift cards, share take out links, and most importantly, engage with their nearby customers, their neighbors.
To join Nextdoor business, you’ll need to claim your Business Page. You must be an owner, employee, or other authorized representative of the business.
1. Go to https://business.nextdoor.com/local and select ‘Sign up for Free’ or ‘Claim Your Free Business Page’.

If you don’t see your business page, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the blue link that says ‘Not here? Create your business page.’
