Targeting

I'd like to talk about this. I am a notary - as are many others - it is a simple thing for Thumbtack - but I find that I get hired maybe half the time - because THUMBTACK will ENCOURAGE clients to contact MORE THAN ONE PRO. I respond FAST to Thumbtack and straight to their texts.

This just doesn't seem right to me - If there was a way I could pay for more leads at once and get a discount, I might consider it.......but the direct targeting system doesn't seem to work in anyone's favor except for Thumbtack's. I think we should all have the opportunities and be shown based on our response time, etc.......but we should only pay if we get hired.

    I'd like to add that the option for the customer to select "allow pro to suggest other dates" doesn't expand the opportunities to get hired. When a customer is looking for a service, it's for as soon as today or tomorrow. The "other dates" thing definitely let's Thumbtack off the hook more often when the customer wants a job done and the dates they picked are the dates you're unavailable, but they also clicked the "let the pro suggest.." button. It hurts the trust I had in them as a company.
