Why have qualified leads virtually disappeared (again)? For most of this year I received more qualified leads than I could handle. Suddenly I've now gotten exactly one in six weeks, and that was a ghost. Has Thumbtack exhausted its advertising budget for the year, or is there some other reason for this dropoff?
Thanks for reaching out about this @yeeditor I have passed on your concerns on to our product team. With the holidays and such coming up, it could very well just be a slow time of year for your service. Definitely keep an eye on it and keep us updated!
Book Editors: Have any of you experienced a dramatic dropoff in leads? For most of this year I received more leads than I could handle. Since mid-October I have seen one qualified lead and it was a ghost. Previously I was getting more than 1000 views per week. This past week it was zero. That is virtually impossible. Something had to have changed internally in Thumbtack, but when I called I was told that it is probably just "a lull". That makes no sense. The same thing happened in 2018 when I didn't receive a lead for six months while TT was changing the manner in which it displayed the "Editing"category. I suspect something similar has happened again. Since I obtain 90% of my business through Thumbtack this literally puts me out of business. Feedback welcome.
I remember a big deal was made a few years ago that TT was doing a nationwide marketing campaign.
I saw a total of 1 TV ad.
I have yet to see anything else in Phoenix, AZ.
No TV, web ads, print, billboards. NOTHING.
TT is now a $1.3B company. Can't they do something FOR the Pro's instead of just taking?
