Using "Nextdoor" To Meet New Clients. It's Free & Awesome.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Compass 0524642

 

Nextdoor.com is a great website that keeps neighbors in communication with each other. The message boards allow the member to communicate about neighborhood events, warn each other about crime and to more importantly, “sell stuff.” These types of websites have been around for awhile, but Nextdoor takes it to a more professional level with a complete profile page, and host of options. In the site there’s a classified section, Crime & Safety, Documents, Free Items, Lost and Found and of course Recommendations.

 

This is a great space and opportunity to communicate with your neighbors and showcase yourself when the opportunity presents itself.  Currently there are over 400 neighbors  and 4,000 area neighbors around me.

 

I will be using the website as an opportunity to get to know people, communicate, make new friends and ultimately get more business and even promote a neighborhood listing. Past and current clients who have bought in my immediate area can help grow my business by adding me under the recommendations tab.

 

Check it out, for every person you recommend that signs up you get a $25 Amazon gift card! Sign up  your past clients. It’s a great site!

Hi Greg -- I joined NextDoor last year -- we are still trying to reach 100 members and I have yet to "do" much with it.  I received updates and welcome announcements but haven't seen too much value yet.   Looking forward to hearing some of your(or anyone for that matter) success stories .

Greg, We get the feed from one of the local Cincinnati neighborhoods (they haven't expanded into our main market area yet).  A lot of insight into the neighborhood's pros and cons.

Interesting. Sounds Greg like it could easily replace HOA web sites that are custom developed for neighborhood communication. Haha, laughed at David's thought.

I'll check it out! It sounds like it might be a good place for me to recommend some of my favorite service providers.

Greg - I have been invited to my neighborhood a few times, but was not sure how it could be utilized. At the time there were only a handful of neighbors registered. I will have to check back in with Nextdoor and see how it has progressed.

We love Nextdoor... really helped when a Bobcat was on the loose in the 'hood and when we had our bbq 'solar panel' party to provide neighbors with more information about going green.
