Have you ever wanted to get to know your neighbors better but didn’t want to intrude? Nextdoor.com allows you to meet your neighbors in a way that you’ve probably never considered – online! All you have to do is launch a Nextdoor site for your neighborhood. And you can get a FREE $25 Amazon Gift Card just for the effort!
Nextdoor is a social networking site just for neighborhoods. It is very useful for things such as lost and found pets, giving away free items, or reporting suspicious behavior. In my Nextdoor neighborhood, we have helped a woman find her lost cat as well as discuss random people knocking on doors. It puts me at ease knowing that my neighbors are looking out for each other and it allows us to discuss what’s going on without having to find a meeting place and arrange a meeting time that works for everyone. We can talk from the comfort of our own homes.
So how do you launch a Nextdoor neighborhood?
First, join Nextdoor. When you put in your address, you’ll quickly find out if there’s an existing site or if you can launch your own. You are only eligible for the Amazon gift card if you launch a new site BUT you can refer friends to create their own and get a gift card that way if there’s already a site for your neighborhood.
Second, verify your identity. Nextdoor offers several options including the super simple method of receiving a post card with a confirmation code in the mail. They just want to make sure you live where you say you do.
Next, invite people in your neighborhood. You only need 10 members to launch your site and get a $25 Amazon gift card. This is pretty easy to do! You can hang up flyers, talk to people you already know, and send out free post cards from the website.
You have 21 days to launch the site but if you don’t, you can always request more time. Once you launch your site, you’ll receive your FREE $25 Amazon gift card within 30 days! No money required – EVER!
So what are you waiting for? Launch a Nextdoor neighborhood today! If you need any help, please let me know!
