Tips for fellow pros

Just a few tips for my fellow pros and new group announcement.

1.use every tool available when receiving a lead phone text email. remember they may log off thumbtack and a phone call or text message can land that lead.

2. check your profile/bio making sure it’s up to date with all services you provide and information about your business or changes you may have made.

3.know your seasons some businesses can work all year with no setbacks or minor setbacks some businesses unfortunately have down times that make it difficult to stay afloat and with thumbtack lead charges it can be costly try to adjust something that will not hurt you long term or shortcut your services maybe a weekly budget cut on thumbtack or expand the budget for leads because the competition can be high your industry.

find a strategy that helps you respond to each lead it really helps to have a go to message when responding to clients.

hope these can help out someway!

    Thank you for sharing these helpful tips for Thumbtack pros! As a fellow business owner, I appreciate your insight and advice on how to optimize our Thumbtack profiles and lead responses. I particularly appreciate your suggestion to use multiple communication channels to reach out to leads and the reminder to adjust our Thumbtack budget based on seasonal changes and competition in our industry. Your suggestion to have a go-to message for responding to clients is also very useful. I will definitely keep these tips in mind as I continue to grow my business on Thumbtack.
