I wanted to share with you something maybe you've known about it maybe you haven't heard about this. It's a website called next door, what that is? It's a website that like HOA people, like the residents who live in HOAs, it's a site that you go to, and if you live in them or if you live around them you can kind of go to the site, enter it in where you live, and it'll kind of tie you into those neighborhoods.
What it is? It's almost like a Facebook page, kind of thing in a way similar to that, that's a little bit different, and it's got some really good content in there. It's a good way to advertise your business in those HOAs, and I'll kind of show you what I'm talking about, I'll kind of show you the front, the first opening page. Let's take a look at it.
How the NextDoor website looks like
That's the front when you first go to the page nextdoor.com, it's got you put in your address, and it finds your neighborhood, and kind of puts you close to where you're at, as far as those neighborhoods go.
I know the way that kind of sadness was a president of our HOA we live in, he told me that might be a good idea for me to look at doing this in my business. He said there's a lot of residents that are currently signed up, so I was checking it out and we didn't sign up for it.
It's actually pretty cool because I can go on there and I'll show you in a second. There's like a classified section where I can go in and say I'm offering and leave the cleanup, so you know special for this neighborhood is going to be X amount of dollars. We're starting that to come out of dollars, and it's a good way to hit a lot of homes without the walk around and knock on a door, or you know passed out like a flyer, or a card.
NextDoor make tie into the ones around you
This site makes it simple and easy, just plug it in and it goes to not only your neighborhood but it'll tie into the ones around you. So currently where I live it works out great because there's like five HOAs right around me. Let's Show, you're going to see that the computer is kind of covered up on what part, the reason being is there's people's names and Street, not really addresses but the streets they live. I'm not going to put that on here for their privacy, I don't think that'd be very fair, so have this really kind of blocked off just for that purpose.
But I'm going to show you the other part, where it has all like the different tabs and stuff you can use, so let's take a look. You got to like your neighbors a map event calendars, were like stupid stuff's going on recommendations, that's another thing where residence will recommend, they've used your business, they can recommend that.
NextDoor help on business
I might go on there and say 'hey I'm looking for a lawn care company for the season'. They'll put recommendations out of companies, so that's where you get your name going out there, getting anybody's neighborhoods, you can get a lot of business, just off of this little next door site.
Next, you kind of have that's the neighborhood I live in sterling farms, and then see it's got the classified area, that's where you would go in and you know advertise right there with other stuff like climate safety in the neighborhood, free items as such, like that, but that classified section right there is the one I kind of want to tell you about.
It's a pretty cool, site email is you, anytime someone like post anything in there at all has any responses back, you can create a business page also on here, which I did, I just started using this, so I can't really tell you any statistics.
NextDoor provide more possibilities
As far as you know as my phone ringing from this or this or that just because the time of the year is kind of slower, and I am diving back to working part time with my other job, so I'm not really advertising much this fall, but this is something I'm really going to use next year a lot, because I want to stay in these neighborhoods. I want to get my route discipline down, I want to make more money not driving around as much.
The key to that would be is hitting these HOAs because if you could just get five or ten in each one, I mean you got it in them you know and a bag of for me, these are Bellavista Quin less than a mile or a mile tops from where I live, which would be even better to someone.
NextDoor is a nationwide thing
Let's share with you if you ever checked it out yet I would definitely check it out, see if it's available in your area. I'm pretty sure it's got to be a probably a nationwide thing I would think. Let me know if you've used it before if you've had any success with it.
I think this is something that relatively new, because I know in my neighborhood we only have study nine members, and there's probably about three hundred houses in here. So I know it's kind of new to us in the Midwest as far as me hearing about it or know anything about this at all.
I thought I'd want to share it with you something I thought was cool, something I thought that was different I haven't heard anybody else talking about this site yet. And I think it might be something really positive for a lot of people. If they can get into it and use it and use as a tool to advertise, it's free.
