Nextdoor, the free private social network for local neighborhoods, recently released a tool called “Offers” that allows local businesses to post special discounts and promotions. It’s a new way to gain new, local customers and drive your local target audience to your Nextdoor Local Page.

A Nextdoor Local Page, which is free of cost, helps to put your local service business in front of local leads. Any business or person who sells items or services can own a business page which allows you to:

Why is Nextdoor So Valuable to Service Contractors?
Nextdoor is highly valuable to businesses because all of the users are verified to reside in a given area. This makes their recommendations of your company more valuable and enables you to specifically target local residents, neighborhood by neighborhood.
In a modern market wherein people make more and more buying decisions based on consumer reviews and recommendations, taking advantage of this localized platform can be quite profitable for contractors that provide great work.
