    • What do you love about being a small business? I love the one on one attention we are able to give each of our customers. Being a small business means we see them as people, family, friends and not just $$.
    • What are ways people can support small businesses? Share, share, share! If you’re not in the market for what we have to offer share our info, our Fb posts, our website because someone you know is probably looking for what we have to offer.
    • How has Thumbtack helped your small business? Thumbtack has really been instrumental in helping us grow our customer base. It has also given us tools to better organize and align our services and explain what we have to offer to our potential customers.

    Thank you so much @John_Mctighe @Lemargriffinfilms and @Ejaco these quotes are great and we can't wait to feature these on our social channels! Can you all please share your email addresses (you can DM them to me) and share your social media handles? We just need to send you a media release so we can use these quotes on social media.

    • What do you love about being a small business? I get to create an amazing experience and connect directly with customers who have the passion for the services and results that I offer them. I am happy when making others happy.
    • What are ways people can support small businesses? Tell everyone know that we exist! Spread the word. This is especially true for those of us who might not know as many people in our local network (for example, I teach music online).
    • How has Thumbtack helped your small business? 2/3 of my clients came from Thumbtack. Thumbtack encouraged accountability and transparency when connecting leads to my business through their profile and chat service. It makes a difference for both the customer and the Pro to have a profile.

    I am sorry that I was late to the party, and these are very short answers! 🙊

  • What do you love about being a small business?

    I especially love being a woman in the construction industry - I love being able to show off my expertise in the business & empower others by sharing helpful, relevant knowledge. I’ve been in the industry since ‘93 but our company is only 2 1/2 years old and Thumbtack gives me the opportunity to grow the business with their exceptional lead services. I have found that Thumbtack, when compared to other lead services we’ve used, outperforms them on every level. We have an over 90%-95% closing rate with Thumbtack customers and the value for the money is so much better. This is something truly priceless with a limited budget of a small business. We appreciate the effort you all put out to help ensure our successfulness by providing good, solid leads & opportunities to network to meet others & gain valuable insight..

    @HarpersOKC I am sure @Meckell will be reaching out to you, but I would love to interview you to be featured in a Success Story on our website, too! If you are interested in doing that, let me know! I love hearing stories like this — especially from a woman in a male-dominated industry!
