Recently we have talked with many of our clients about NextDoor.com and how it is a VALUABLE tool for your business.
Here is some information about NextDoor.com, our recommendations, and how you can take advantage of this extra exposure for your business at no charge to you!
What is NextDoor.com?
This is a social media platform designed to work for communities and neighborhoods. After signing up you can see information nearby to you, what your neighbors and doing, asking about and recommendations. We are noticing that neighbors are mostly using the site to ask other neighbors about recommendations not who to avoid. So its interesting, because its not any kind of a rating or review website. Go ahead and sign up and check it out.
How do I get involved?
Once you are signed up, search through your neighborhood and see whats going on. You can then follow the links to claim your company profile. You’ll have to verify your main phone number in order to claim your company profile. This is valuable as you will then be able to add your company name, logo, address, contact information and an brief welcome message. Go ahead and get this all set up. Remember if you are having trouble getting your logo to fit properly, let us know and we can help you out.
Once you have a login and claimed your business, go over to recommendations and see if your company has any. Of course you can recommend your own business, but its far more valuable to keep a look out for opportunities to promote your company. How so?
Watch for when people ask a question…can you answer or recommend? For instance someone is looking for a pest control company, gutters on their house or a real estate agent they can trust. If your company offers the services your neighbors are looking for, recommend your business! Join in the conversation.
Ask for Recommendations!
When your business has satisfied customers, can you ask for a recommendation? Tell them about NextDoor.com and see if they will. When your company is recommended in a neighborhood, your profile will then be active. Which means that by searching for a company that offers your services, you profile will be available to be viewed in that community.
