I am far from new, maybe to the community thread but I am a four time Top pro... I have had extensive discussions with Thumbtack and have watched it grow and stumble and try to improve its app...

I have been using thumbtack for close to 4 years or so. I started my business in 1988. Yes before all technology but I expanded services in time from housecleaning to care to model home walk through quality control..cleaning..staging..vacancy..to help with rentals knowledge of punch sheets..move in to move out..new homes..to residential with many needs thus my name changed with time to home services. I tried the internet..other pro web sites to help grow my business..nothing has come close to thumbtack. I am so very thankful we have connected it's kept this small business going..now serving the greater Sacramento area for over 30 years.

Hey how does this service work. Do I pay to make a quote or pay if I win the business or pay if customer contacts me.

My sister, who is an accountant and very astute about business and finance advised me that this would be a good vehicle to advertise my services.  And she was right....:-)  I've been doing quite well since then, however I am STILL waiting for my 2019 badge and can't understand why that hasn't been expedited yet.  Seems like a pretty simple request to me.....:-(

@nimblejack99 Thumbtack is here to help you make that first connection with a possible customer. They'll be able to find you through the filters they set for the work they need in the search results. When you pay will depend on how you use your account. If you promote your business you'll get a boost in rank in the results and a 20% discount, and the charge will be immediate when someone reaches out to you. If you're not promoting, you'll be able to choose if the lead is a good fit for you and accept the charge that comes with it. You can also express interest in jobs where a pro has already been contacted through the Jobs tab and will only pay if the customer replies. To learn more about how Thumbtack works be sure to check out our Help Center. I'll also be here in the Community if you have any other questions 🙂

I’m not new by any means! I’m a 4X TOP PRO. I have watched how the app has grown, stumbled, and gone from tiny and personal, to big and impersonal. We know and hear our clients, how much corporate has heard us as pros has made me scratch my head

I found Thumbtack on Facebook when we moved to Austin, Tx.  I had previously detailed cars for 14 plus yrs and after doing so for so long my hands began to get arthritis.  I stood and prayed for alternate doors to open and my prayers were answered. From that day forward there was no turning back.  One step at a time and thanks to Thumbtack the community sought our services more and more and I owe my success to Thumbatack and mostly my wife who has been the backbone of the company. She created and generated the company logo, brochures, letterhead, bid proposal sheets, invoices, uniforms and of course my profile page on Thumbtack.  She followed me from job site to job site and photographed my work product before, during and after in order to create a portfololio of my work. All while working her own full time job as a paralegal.  While there have been many changes since we first started using Thumtack to market our business we are proud to say that we have been a Thumbtack professional since 2014 and have earned Best of 2015 status and the Top Pro status for the last 4 yrs.  Our company has grown and we are in high demand and we look forward to many more years of success with Thumtack.
