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

#1 Communication and Education.

I believe in education and training, nevertheless, all customers should educate in the services they frequently request, knowing how, when, and why to communicate an project and project budget is the leader in saving money on expenses and services that are not needed and simply an Luxury.

Thanks! I appreciate the kudos!
As redundant as it may be, my No. 1 tip to success is the C word. COMMUNICATE!
If I've heard it once I've heard it hundreds of times... they didn't show up. They didn't call. They were late and didn't tell me. Many of my REPEAT customers call me out for my communications skills...it ain't rocket science folks...it's Business 101.

Today more than ever, today's customers, whether retirees or young professionals, live by a schedule. You inject yourselves into that routine when you throw out a response to a job request. OWN IT. You show respect for your prospect when you give the a quick text or call as to when you will be arriving, or it you are going to be late. Heck, they feel respected when you reschedule! They may not like it, but by communicating even bad news, it is more well received than not meeting expectations by omission or neglect.

I guarantee that if you COMMUNICATE WELL you will generate more business and income.

Keep it simple. Be transparent about everything from the start. Don't show up dressed like a thug (this includes wearing your pants up around the waist,). Don't act or talk like a gang banger wannaBe. Don't talk to a customer with a cigarette or chew in your mouth. Don't show up to a job with rap music or profanity blaring for the whole neighborhood to hear. Never ask for money up front. Customers are more likely to hire you if you give reasons to trust you, rather than have doubts about you if they see you acting or talking like an idiot. If you say you are going to do something, do it. Don't make excuses. Don't procrastinate. Don't cut corners. Don't be sloppy. Don't be lazy. It's not hard to be successful. It just requires effort and common sense.

My name is Leigh Hancock,
My business is Pin Up & Go Mobile H&M in Las Vegas, Nevada
Thank you so much for making me a Top Pro again this is the 4th time I’ve made it!
I specialize in Pin Up Hair & Makeup but 80% of my business is weddings and it’s a tuff industry in Vegas with a lot of local artists competing how I make it work is first and foremost listening to my clients and understanding their needs being on time and setting a fair price for services and always promptly answering those emails.
This is my best advise to new artists
