Thanks for using Thumbtack!
After 18 quotes and only 3 hires I'm not 80% satisfied. When looking over insights it's apparent customers want a pro but are not serious about hiring one. I've underbid 95% on the average spectrum to see not one pro was hired. We are required to pay to quote. The customer searching should be required to pay to find a pro. They'd take it more seriously. And Thumbtack has frozen several times opening my app on my Apple IPhone slowing this Pro down. Not to mention I spent a good 45 minutes filling out answers to my profile saving each one for a request to pop up and delete my work!!! And keep reading more reviews.....you'll become suspicious. Watch out for customers who live out of town and need you to clean that want to mail you a payment want your mailing address and a resume only to steal your info or fraud your bank account by cashing their check! Just saying there's some pros and some cons!
It has helped my business substantially, great company to work with!
I started with Thumbtack almost 2 months ago; its very easy to use as a Pro. It's a great way for those of us who are in-between jobs to earn money using the skills we already have. I appreciate the simple credit system; once you buy/use the credits to quote, that's it - no further commission or obligation to Thumbtack!
I've used the app for a couple of weeks now. I've gotten hired about 4 times. Over all I'm happy with the experience. I wish it required the owner of home to enter more information. And pictures. It's hard to give a quote on what heater install without more information or a faucet install without getting more info. The credits can be a bit expensive depending on the job. I bid on the ones that are 2 or 3 credits. But I've seen a few that were higher. So it seems the prices have increased. For 50 credits they now want 100 bucks. A few months ago I think it was around 65 for 50 credits. Plus they have increased the cost of sending quotes. I just say a water heater install they want 7 credits so that would be 14 bucks. That's nuts!
I started with Thumbtack about a year ago. It was a slow start but has picked up to be a significant portion of my business income. The things I like best is that they do significant advertising nationally to promote use of the consumer end. Recent improvements such as a scheduler and direct customer communication add even more value. Yes, paying to bid seems like a bit of an annoyance but its quite a bit better than other forms of advertising in that your bid goes to someone looking for your service. My advice is to get the background check and don't expect it to swamp you with business overnight. It will take about six months to get established and for your reputation to grow. But you end up with an effective and dedicated marketing/communication platform in the mid to longrun.
I use thumbtack to help generate more customers for my business. I love the app.
Thumbtack is great for small businesses just starting out that don't want to spend a lot on advertising and still want to be able to get their Company name out there and get reviews. It would be better if you could send the people submitting requests one templates message though when you need them to clarify more information before you can actually provide a quote. Then you don't have to waste a credit just to request more information before knowing if you are able to perform the job or not.
Thumbtack was an app that I felt like was easy to conquer. After I sent a countless number of quotes I felt like I was not reaching people the way I wanted. As I was on the verge of giving up on the app, I decide to create a game plan and a different approach to each request and since I've done that I've landed 5 big time jobs out of the 8 quotes that i sent in a two week span. Overall I have landed many new fitness clients. And from those connections I've made even more connections. Thumbtack was a way for me to connect with the people that used to close their doors on me or just not take me seriously. If it's not working for you, don't quit, some times you just need to tweak your profile or your quote. No matter how good you think it is, someone else may see the exact same thing and say it's terrible. Don't quit.
Very expensive credits for developers and designers! And you have to pay for people who replay to ask how was my day? It is ridiculous! I spend more than 500$ in credits for almost nothing in earnings! One project is 70 credits. The worst thing is that I suspect that they create requests for us to send our quotes and they replay us with stupid things, so is the way we lose our money and credits. So upset and disappointed!
Aldo thumbtack is my main source of advertising I wish costumer service was live, sometimes I feel like the quotes are fake, the same ppl are aloud to quote over and over for the same service using a different (fake) name, there's no way to have fake reviews removed,
I am a violin teacher who has signed up for numerous websites like this. I've already gotten seven students through Thumbtack and zero from all of the other ones. The phone support staff I spoke to were all very friendly and helpful.
As a private piano teacher, I have found Thumbtack to be a great way to get students. I've used Thumbtack for five years, and many of the clients who have hired me have become long-term students, thereby making the cost to buy credits reasonable. I would definitely recommend Thumbtack to other private/free-lance teachers.
I teach guitar and violin lessons. This app has helped me get my name out there and has given me the opportunity to make new contacts. Love it!
Smart and savvy business for smart and savvy business people. I couldn't be happier with this app. Bring this app to Canada!
Thumbtack is a great way to get leads for a cheaper price than most. Although they just raised bidding credits and make you pay for the customers you don't get my company does make 20k-30k in extra revenue.
Great way to get started in business and a great way to maintain a workload. Simple to use and easy to figure out! It has helped me fill in the holes of a workload and has allowed me more leads then I could have drummed up initially!
I spent $29.99 received 20 coins and was able to bid on 11 jobs. I didn't win any of them. Maybe it's me. But regardless, I'm not spending any more money or going to both with this. There is potential. I wouldn't mind paying higher commission for deals I win. I don't like paying for quotes that someone probably discarded immediate. Again maybe it's me, but I think you should have to pay a commission for wins not loses
This app is awesome I've been doing a lot of jobs through it with the reviews that people give what we do a good job that's the best recommendation I recommend this app to anybody is doing any type of job at work
I've loved my experience using Thumbtack for my business. It's simple and easy to operate. They give you a ton of tips and expert advise for how to use it effectively and it works! I've been hired several times.
