This month is 5 years I started using Thumbtack, and top pro nearly every single quater since. it woud appear that in that process come up with a way to make as much as they can at my expense. Am I the only thinking this way? It appears to me that all the changes they keep making are outrageous, lacking logic or common sense. If there are any of you usisng the platform for over 3 years having more success today than back then? I've already had many conversations with custumer service, they are always pleasent and professional, but don't have any leverage or power for real change. I'd like to hear your experiences. Thank you. Francisco firstname.lastname@example.org
You are not the only one. You only need to browse the small business talk>trending topics or the pro lounge>forum sections of the TT community to see that many of these changes have chased a lot of us away.
Thumbtack was so useful to me when I initially started my business, so I check back periodically to see if things have improved, but I'm largely getting my work elsewhere at this point.
No, you're not the only one.
I'm also a Top Pro.
I've only been with Thumbtack for a year; however, suddenly in July the number of jobs I got dropped dramatically. Before that, I had no problem finding work. I would put in a few hours on the computer and I had jobs lined-up every week. Now, it's crashed. I have only one job for October, two in November. I sent out bids to 73 people last week and I didn't get back any solid replies. Those that I got back were fake and I was charged $50 for them.
