With small businesses facing unprecedented challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, we at Nextdoor want to help local businesses communicate and connect with their best customers — their neighbors. With a free Nextdoor Business Page, businesses receive broad distribution to the people who live in the neighborhood in which they operate, and businesses can promote links to their gift cards, takeout/delivery options, and fundraising campaigns.
Letter from the CEO
The commitment of local businesses to their communities is incredibly moving. Johnny Doughnuts, a favorite in my neighborhood, is one of my first “stops” of the day. For a $15 donation on their website, anyone can send doughnuts and coffee to community hospital personnel (while also helping Johnny Doughnuts pay their staff during COVID-19 closures). Equator Coffees, which has powered the San Francisco Bay Area for 25 years, has been forced to temporarily shutter the majority of its locations and lay off dozens of employees. Their owner is hosting a tip drive for her furloughed baristas, and she spends part of her day delivering free coffee to medical workers.
I’m sure examples in your own neighborhood come to mind. Local businesses are the cornerstone of thriving neighborhoods, and we are committed to supporting them. Conversation about helping local businesses has been up 17X on Nextdoor during the pandemic. Neighbors on Nextdoor are sharing which of their go-to restaurants are open for takeout/delivery, rallying fellow patrons to buy gift cards, and organizing fundraising campaigns to help out-of-work employees.
When in-person business is difficult, or even impossible, we provide businesses with a free and easy way to connect and communicate with their most loyal customers—their neighbors. Nextdoor gives a business broad and instant distribution and enables them to share information with the people who live in the neighborhood in which they operate to build their brand, attract new customers, and maintain customer loyalty. We’re all in this together, and our team at Nextdoor remains committed to ensuring everyone has a neighborhood to rely on.
