We’re excited to announce the Top Pro Class of January 2020, and to celebrate this important accomplishment as a community!

Top Pros, please introduce yourself by replying to this thread with the name of your business, where you're based, and your #1 tip for becoming a Top Pro, so that other pros can learn from your success. 

Whether it's your first time in the Pro Community or if you've been here for awhile, we want to let you know that we've got big plans for 2020: 

We’re hosting VIP dinners in select cities to bring together Top Pros, key members of local communities, and Thumbtack leadership. Keep an eye out for an email invite to see if we’re coming to a city near you.

We’re also revamping our online community to build more opportunities for pro-to-pro learning and connection, so be sure to check back in for updates as we get closer to March.

Congratulations again and welcome to the Thumbtack Pro Community!

Hi there! I just started using TT during the summer last year for my new business, Vivian Maxine Photography (est. April 2019). This is my first time being a Top Pro on TT, and I'm very grateful! There have been rough patches starting out (anything marketing-related has been new territory for me), but I am thankful for the opportunities I have gotten through TT. My big piece of advice for pros is to underpromise and overdeliver. I love surprising my clients with more than they thought they would get, and they are also happier as a result! Another piece of advice is to really figure out your ideal client and hone in on how to best reach them using TT's tools and your own know-how; this helps with reducing lead waste, if you know what I mean.

Hi, I’m Vince owner of GoldHeart Studios in New York City. My first tip would be to try and respond to every quote as soon as possible. Not only would you be improving your chances of getting the job, you would also be helping this community to stay number one in quick responses.

Even though I am honored to be mentioned as Top Pro, I don't know how I became Top Pro again, as the leads have been far and few between. Perhaps it was that many of my bookings came earlier in the year and the reviews were after the events that I DJ'd in November and December?
