Many neighbors have been stuck at home for several months while sheltering in place – and if the spike in Nextdoor searches for home improvement terms are any indication, it’s likely that funds that were previously allocated for summer vacations have been traded for home improvement projects. 

As a home service provider, this is good news! But, not sure how to stand out from your competition when neighbors are searching for you on Nextdoor? Check out some successful Local Deals from businesses like yours to inspire your next deal:

1. Offer a free quote or estimate to highlight your services that’s exclusive for Nextdoor members.
Do you usually charge customers when you develop a project quote or estimate? Consider offering this service for free to your local neighbors as a way to enable them to preview your work.
