Nextdoor UK’s first ever local business awards, Neighbourhood Faves, have launched giving neighbours a way to celebrate and support the businesses they love.
From fave restaurants and local shops, to go-to dog walkers and trusted plumbers, Neighbourhood Faves gives neighbours the opportunity to champion their favourite local businesses and give them the kudos they deserve. The awards, which are sponsored by global small business platform Xero, run until Friday 13th October and neighbours can vote for as many businesses as they like across the nine categories.
We all know that local businesses have faced unprecedented and challenging times over the last three years and so need our support more than ever. Recent research revealed that over three-quarters (76%) of Brits would rely on the recommendations from their neighbours when looking for a local business, proving just how important recommendations are to a local businesses reputation and longevity.
Our research also found that over half (53%) of Brits also rely on community groups to determine the quality of a local business and over a third (37%) of people prefer to take recommendations from neighbours more so than searching for a local business online (30%) and promotional flyers (10%).
Only eligible businesses with a Nextdoor business page can receive votes, so if you’re a business who wants to win the coveted title of 2023 Neighbourhood Fave, make sure you set up your page today by clicking here.
