Profile Consultations

The better your profile, the more work you’ll get. No one knows your business better than you, but sometimes you just need a fresh perspective to put your best foot forward. That's why we're creating a new forum to get profile feedback from other pros like you.

So how does this work?

Step 1: Ask for feedback

  • Post a link to your public profile
    • Go to your Thumbtack profile tab
    • On the right top corner of the page, click “Share Profile”
    • Copy the link and post it below by clicking the "Reply" button under this post
  • Add 1 to 2 sentences on any specific areas where you’d like feedback

Step 2: Give feedback

  • Choose at least two profiles posted by your fellow pros.
  • Share some feedback on how you think they could improve

If you don’t know what to say, here are some questions you can ask yourself:

  • What’s already working well on this profile?
  • What phrases, photos or reviews make you want to hire this pro?
  • If you were a customer, what questions would you have after viewing this profile?
  • Is there anything you can’t find on the profile that you’d want to know or see?
  • What are three things that would make this profile even stronger?

To give feedback, click “Reply” on the post you’re responding to. Tag the pro you’re giving feedback to by using the “@” symbol and typing the pro’s Community username. If you don’t tag the pro, they may not see your feedback.  For example: “Hi @MichelleHR! Thanks for sharing your profile with us! I have a few thoughts on how you can improve it…”.

We’re excited to see you share tips to succeed together -- that’s what makes this Community great.  Thank you for being here, and thank you for participating!

From December 3rd to December 7th, Thumbtack employees will join the forum to give some recommendations of their own. Look out for their feedback, too!

@TJUMz I think your profile is very marketable and has great details about your business. When it comes to length, keep your intro short and sweet. If you have more to say, add more detail in the Questions and Answers section of your profile. You could add more past projects to your profile to help you stand out to customers and show them work you’re proud of.  I recommend you complete our course on getting hired as well.

Your message got the point across but to me it just did not flow.  The cake is beautiful but it looked like it was leaning, you might want to retake the pic using a tripod to make sure the camera angle is level.  I am just saying it might make a difference to some people.

Is this guaranteed to bring more leads with Promote turned off? How does one condense profile and include personable messages for every customer/situation?
