First of all, my business is promoted; therefore I pay upfront for "blind leads."
In the last couple of days, it happened not once that I was not automatically paired with the right customer. When I checked to potential customer's request, everything matched with my settings. Yes, I double checked my settings!
Why do I pay for TT for being promoted if they don't match me with the right leads??? I had to quote manually which is fine, but by the time I noticed that there are new jobs, they had already contacted other PROs. It is not fun like this!
Anyone else has the same experience?
@Alitta to clarify are you saying that you're seeing jobs in the Jobs Tab that matched your settings yet you weren't contacted for directly? If this is the case then those customers likely chose to reach out to another pro through the search results, but they were sent to you in your Jobs Tab for you to quote on since you were also a good match.
Let's take a closer look to make sure we're on the same page. If you'll send me a direct message with any customer names and examples I can start working to clear up these questions for you.
@Alitta that's right, while promoting your business customers can reach out to you directly and the charge will be immediate. If they reach out to other pros directly, you may see the job show up in the Jobs Tab and you can still let them know that you're a good match. You'll pay in those cases if the customer responds to your quote.
... the question is, why I was not contacted? I think I am down in the ranking... =(
However, changing my Travel Preferences only brought me false customer contacts. People like to randomly hit the "when are you available" button just not to answer later at all. PROs should not be charged when a potential customer does not continue the conversation. If there were no automated answer options, they were forced to compose their sentences, and that would reflect more serious interest. Hitting an automated message button is to easy. Besides, I bet there is no warning next to that button that they should consider twice hitting it because the PRO must pay for it... (ha-ha, TT has no interest in doing that...)
@Alitta I've listed the ways to rank higher in search results along with some attached links. These can also be attributed to higher customer engagement. We’re here to support you, so if you’ve tried the recommendations and tips within these links and still aren’t finding success - let us know!
