It’s that time of the year again! We are so excited to announce our newest class of Top Pros: the Top Pro class of July 2019!

Top Pros are among the most popular and highly rated pros on Thumbtack. Being named a Top Pro is a huge accomplishment. Less than 4% of all pros on Thumbtack currently qualify - quite an exclusive group!

If you've just been named a Top Pro, please introduce yourself! Reply to this thread with the name of your business and where you're based. 

We’d also love to hear your #1 tip for becoming a Top Pro, so that other pros can learn from your success. You can include your tip in your introductory post below, or consider uploading a video of yourself just like this one.

Congratulations again! We’re so proud of your hard work. And we hope you are, too.toppro_widget_2.png

Thank You! It wasn’t easy! Especially with all the changes the last year. Though Marcos announcement email said “your thriving”, that is far from the truth. I managed to get Top Pro status this year, which I worked hard for, but it has cost me greatly. The profit margin is not as it once was and the cost To get those bookings has tripled. Tripled. Fact. We all know that and all feel that change. The system needs major changes and I hope to see those soon. Filtering customers properly so those on promote stop wasting their dollars needs to be addressed and more efficient. Why is a customer clicking on “are you available” when I am being filtered to them only because I am available! Why is a customer asking me for a estimate when the estimate (in most services) shows them the estimate? Customers shouldn’t even have these buttons to click. This is a sample of many simple things that need adjustments. I hope within the next month or so we see these changes that have been promised. I truly want to root for Thumbtack again. I want to refer to friends again! I really am grateful for this site that has allowed for me to expand my passion. Changed my life for sure. However, this last year has been truly disheartening. Anyway - Congratulations to all of you that made Top Pro. I tip my hat to each of you! And thank you to all the customer support staff who have worked with us during this last year of dramatic, challenging changes!

My one strong piece of advice - your profile photo needs to represent you professionally. I’ve seen some profile photos that I question and are confused by. So that is what the customer sees as well. A nice friendly, professional photo. Don’t oversell it or be too creative or weird or use just a logo. This is a image based site so put you best efforts in representing yourself first.

Hi Everyone! Kristina Reynolds with Pro Push Fitness. We are a personal training and small geoup6 fitness gym in Gilbert, AZ.
My tip for making Top Pro is respond timely, be on time to appointments and ask your client for a Thumbtack review "through the app" by the 2nd workout (not in person because they forget).

Hi Fellow Top Pros,
I am honored to be recognized for representing Thumbtack and
Xtraordinary Images Photography as businesses that provide exceptional service and products to our clients.
I believe one important reason my clients consistently rate me highly is my commitment to great communication with them. I try to anticipate their questions and answer them before they ask.

Thanks again Thumbtack!

Did not even realize we even qualified because we respond the same way online as we do in person or on the phone and that is to get back as fast as possible to at least let the customer know you are interested.
