Hi @Claudia,

It's super helpful to hear your feedback - thank you for sharing it here.

We only want to match you with jobs that you want and are a good fit for you. Set your job preferences, travel preferences, and availability, so we know exactly what jobs you want. Since we know these are jobs you want, we know you’ll likely provide a great customer experience, so we’ll give you a rank boost. If a job isn’t a perfect fit with the preferences you’ve set, we might still show you in search results if we think you might still be interested. But if a customer reaches out to you, we won’t ever charge you for those until you accept the lead.

Well, Scott, I don't have any questions for you.  Thumbtack is broken for me now.  It was such a simple site to work, when I joined.......now, it is just too complicated & I do not want to invest so much time, especially now, when I am very busy........

I am wishing all of you at Thumbtack a very Merry Christmas & a happy new year!

How does the ranking system work (or, perhaps better stated, "How does TT envision it working," because it does not seem to be working so well)? In TT's mind, what makes this an improvement over how it used to (actually) work for pros?

I’ve been very disappointed with Thumbtack in 2018 when the automatic bids came out. As a photographer it’s been hard to get quality quotes that aren’t people just bargain shopping for cheap services. I used to get lots of clients through TT but the switch in bids meant I mainly saw cheap quotes, which do not match my services and pricing. Or I saw requests with no price listed and I didn’t want to quote services if they were just those bargain shoppers. So I’d like to know more about the ranking process allowing people to more directly see me and my company on TT. Are we able to stand out based on professionalism- like my services cost more but I’m licensed, have won international photography awards, and practice newborn safety for my sessions. So I’m not a “hobby” photographer, if that makes sense. How do we compete in the rankings outside of price or differentiate quality levels of services?

If I add more content in my profile will I rank in my local search engines?  I would really like this platform to work for me as I am a freelance designer and it would a really amazing way for me to get leads.

 

Thank You, Celia
