Episode 157: Nextdoor Ninja with Kim Angeli

With 15+ years of experience as an independent insurance agency entrepreneur, Kim Angeli knows the importance of connection in creating a successful business.   One of the more underutilized methods to do this is Nextdoor, an app for neighborhoods where you can instantly connect with people, businesses, and happenings near your home. Kim walks us through the best ways to use this app to build relationships and success.

Key Takeaways:

  • During the covid lockdown, people moved away from Facebook to Nextdoor as they were able to readily find information about what they needed locally.
  • Nextdoor has experienced significant growth and has added many features on the business pages that can be used to your advantage
  • You have to manage your reputation, so keep Nextdoor up-to-date with your branding, etc
  • Nextdoor allows two business posts a month, an equivalent of $3500 in free marketing
  • The cumulative effect on Nextdoor to get yourself the visibility you need
  • With greater SEO and AI, the more hearts that you can gather from local residents, the greater visibility you garner
  • National sponsors do not get hearts so local businesses are more prevalent on the pages
  • Have at least five hearts before you go and post your advertising or marketing from next door because it doesn’t look professional.
  • Hearts are the keys to the recipe of success for next door.
  • Interact with and appreciate those who gave you recommendations. Interaction is important in order to build those connections.
  • 68% of people will leave you and never do business with you again because they feel unappreciated
