I'm not sure what you mean by ranking, but we have been affiliated with Thumbtack for several years. We are very frustrated with not knowing up front what our cost will be. We have wasted a lot of money on bids that go nowhere, so we are apprehensive about giving bids going forward. We have had to cut back because of the cost. Customers schedule tutoring sessions or music lessons with us then cancel before even beginning.
To my knowledge I had not received a Thumbtack lead in many months. I decided to look in my inbox and saw that I had a few contacts in October. In the past I have received a text and an email alerting me about the Thumbtack prospect. I am always quick to respond. My phone is in my hand or visable most of the time. Is there a possibilty that these leads slipped through your process.
I have would love to receive leads from your program. I have only sold one home and had one somewhat unreasonable listing appointment. I only say unreasonalble because they wanted full market for the home which needed extensive updating. I will not promise what I know I cannot deliver to make a deal.
Thak you for your time.
Well put!!!! After posting a reply today to "let's tak about how you rank in search result" I received the usual rhetoric about creating a great profile.... been there done that! They are not listening!!!!! My business tanked this year because of these changes. I ended up joining Home Advisor, sooooooo expensive. I can't afford it, but I was desperate. I'm so frustrated with TT.
Thanks for writing such a great reply.... our only hope is that someone in the grips of power will get their act together because TT is beginning to get a bad reputation.
I used to get new inquiries for service all the time. I no longer get any notifications. What ever changed has actually decreased any potential traffic I had in the past dramatically. I have received a new request in months.
So far I am not a huge fan of what has been happeneing. It doesnt appear to work as well as it did in the past.
I dont even show up in the search results in my area. People show up who arent even teaching what I teach and have zero hires. It appears only a few people show in the rankings and are getting all of the leads. Your algorithm is completely broken.
