Measuring advertising impact on consumer behavior with Foursquare and Nextdoor

Consumers are more and more engaged in their neighborhoods than ever before. They’re tapping into their local communities to influence their purchase decisions, whether it be picking up a quick dinner at a neighborhood favorite restaurant or heading to a local store to stock up on essentials. Whatever the purchase may be, consumers are not going far and increasingly leaning towards local options.

Nextdoor is the neighborhood network that connects neighbors with each other and everything nearby. It is a platform for advertisers to create meaningful connections with a uniquely engaged, influential audience. Foursquare provides a way for advertisers to then measure the effectiveness of their advertising within Nextdoor’s community platform.

For several years, Foursquare and Nextdoor have been working to provide an understanding of consumer behavior across verticals, including QSR, Retail, CPG, Food & Beverage, Telco and more. From ad exposure to actionable insights, Foursquare Attribution enables advertisers to measure Nextdoor users’ resulting path to purchase while driving measurable outcomes. Businesses are taking advantage of Foursquare’s measurement solution on Nextdoor to garner a better understanding of where their consumers are going and the results are showing.
