Having a Website Review Widget is a BAD idea!

I think its that thumbtack tries selling you on the idea of having a website review widget or badge installed on your website. Say a a potential clients lands on your website and clicks on the thumtack widget Thumtack will rout them to your profile. Your visiting client either can send you a direct message from your thumtack profile, OR they can click on the big shiny blue "request a quote" box and get routed to hundreds of other contractors on thumtacks platform.

@AGC

That's why I don't have any widgets from Thumbtack or any other site on my website.

@DJSrevie Especially if they are taking YOUR leads to their platform, doesn’t make sense.

Re: Having a Website Review Widget is a BAD idea!

@AGC many pros use the widgets to showcase their Thumbtack profile to possible new customers visiting their websites. If pros have a large collection of reviews that they’re proud of, it allows them to share that! It’s also a good way to showcase Top Pro status. It’s completely up to you whether or not you’d like to use the widget or not, but a lot of pros like having that option.

Re: Having a Website Review Widget is a BAD idea!

@Kameron These are good reasons, but I’m afraid thumbtack is offering us business owners a double edge sword here. Other lead generating platforms have monetization strategies for eliminating competitor ads from our profile. Thumbtack should offer something like that, this way we can use the widget to showcase our reviews and not be afraid of loosing a lead to a competitor on thumbtacks platform.
