2018 Veterinary Marketing Benchmarks // Nextdoor


Nextdoor Business Listings for Veterinary Hospitals



Percentage of iVET360 hospitals with claimed Nextdoor listings: 100%

The What:
Imagine that your hospital has 45 people recommending your services. These are the clients that live in your local community—they are the people next to you and who know you best—they are your neighbors. Now picture that you had no idea about these reviews or about any of the feedback. Or worse, imagine that you were receiving unfair, negative reviews that you didn’t even know existed.

This is why it’s so important to claim your Nextdoor listing—there are hospitals out there that are unaware and defenseless to what people are saying about them on Nextdoor, all because they haven’t claimed their listing and haven’t been active on their account.

The How:
How to claim your Nextdoor listing: To claim your listing, you must (of course) first be affiliated with your hospital, then you need to create an account, search for your practice and click “Claim”—make sure to claim it as a business.

Then enter your name, email and a password. Once you claim your page, you will have to go through a basic phone verification protocol to confirm you are who you say you are. When you are finished claiming your hospital, you can see what people are saying about you, respond to comments and update your profile information.
