How To Promote Your Home Service Business With Nextdoor
As a home service contractor, have you ever thought about creating a Nextdoor business page? Nextdoor is a social platform that is designed for specific neighborhoods and surrounding areas. It allows neighbors to communicate with one another, post on a neighborhood bulletin board, and get feedback or referrals from their neighbors.
If you're not on Nextdoor, you may be missing out on potential customers. Referrals are super important, especially to a home service contractor. In this article, I will guide you through the steps of creating a Nextdoor business page and provide tips on how to promote your page.
First, let's create your Nextdoor business page. If you don't already have an account, go to nextdoor.com and sign up using your home address, email address, password, name, and phone number. You'll receive a four-digit code via text, and then you'll need to agree to “be a good neighbor.”
Once you're signed in, you can search for your neighborhood and see the conversations taking place. Nextdoor is a great place to be, especially if you're a service contractor in multiple neighborhoods around your location.
To create your business page, go to the business section of Nextdoor and claim your listing. If your business already exists in their database, you can claim it. If not, you'll need to create a new business page. Enter your business name, address, phone number, website, and choose your business category.
Once your business page is set up, you can start promoting it. One of the cool things you can do as a business on Nextdoor is set up local deals and create offers. You can offer a percentage off, a fixed discount, a buy one get one deal, or a custom deal.
To create an offer, click on “content” and “create a post.” Select the type of deal you want to offer, write a description of the offer, and choose the duration of the offer. You can also add a photo and a redemption code or terms and conditions.
When your offer is ready, you can promote it by choosing the action you want the customer to take when they read your offer. You can prompt them to call, email, message you, or get directions to your business.
In conclusion, creating a Nextdoor business page and promoting it can be a great way to get more referrals and customers. Take advantage of the platform and be where your customers are. Remember to keep in mind that Nextdoor is a social platform, so be a good neighbor and engage with your customers in a positive way.
