Nextdoor.com

If your a contractor, this is an excellent resource.

This is a social media site for neighborhoods. For my neighborhood, there are posts about coyotes, garage sales, someone is having surgery and needs their dog walked and finally, anyone know a contractor who can do this...?

When someone asks for a referral, you can chime in and say, "me me me!" but of course it's better if someone else recommends you. Being the first responder is a big deal.

It's free.

I get more work from this site than any other. I even tried traditional advertising in newspapers and it wasn't even close to my Nextdoor referrals.

Couple things, you can only join the neighborhood you live in. They have a pretty strict verification process. For example, my home neighborhood is good but not the best. I tried to sneak into one of the top neighborhoods and there was no way around it.

You can advertise one post per 6 months.

If you can get one person to be an advocate for your company, it helps immensely. By that, I mean someone that will refer you, provide a reference, speak up. For me, I had a guy ask for a reference to seal his basement walls after water seeped into his basement. I met him and told him it's a big rip-off and he needs to divert water from his house instead. He thinks I'm a good guy and is constantly helping me out.

I answer as many posts as I can. If someone wants a roofer, which I don't do, I recommend one. If someone's dog was eaten by a coyote, I tell them I'm sorry etc.

Many many people read these but never post anything. Those people hire me. Being a jerk online would be a good way to never get any work.

I have used this before.

There was a conversation in one neighborhood that there was a man that was constantly following women in the neighborhood. So we started following him around.

Just kidding.

We have had neighbors post on Nextdoor that they lost their pets, and other neighbors that had found the lost pet would find the post, and return the pet. Pretty cool.

I didn't know that you could do ads on it though. I am sure people on here can take advantage of that. Thanks!
