Thanks for the heads up. ThumbTack keeps improving its service, so I look forward to seeing how this new showcase will work. My suggestion is to role it out first, then have pros like myself critique it. My only suggestion is to make it AS SIMPLE AS POSSIBLE with lots of check-the-box options, etc.--nothing complicated, or it won't get used. Good luck, and look forward to seeing the "new" ThumbTack.
Since introducing the new way possible clients see us in these lists. Perhaps placing the Top Pro's at the top of those lists to show their radius and availability, as they would be more likely to click on them for hire. Maybe a filter system would work too. As I see the list is shown at random of Pros within the area for the customer. Maybe have advanced search categories with this new search option for the client.
This is a great suggestion, @BlushPix. We're spending a lot of time thinking about how and where pros show up on a customer's list of results. Advanced search options and filters are definitely on our mind, too. Keep your eyes peeled for changes, and we'll keep you posted on any changes we make!
@notarylarry this is definitely something that is good to highlight by using the intro section of your profile along with answering the Q&A section. Keep an eye out as we work on ways to showcase previous jobs you've done in your profile as well.
I think there should be an option to sync reviews from external sources so that customers can see you have a track record even though you're new to Thumbtack.
Thank you for this idea, @Realtor_Ed!
We know that reviews go a long way in showing customers what it’s like to work with you.
We're excited to announce that all pros can now import up to 10 reviews from Facebook to your Thumbtack profile! To learn more about importing Facebook reviews, read our article Get reviews in the Help Center.
Soon, you’ll be able to import Google reviews to your Thumbtack profile as well. This will help you get a good start on Thumbtack and build a strong profile that stands on its own. We’ll let you know when this is available, too.
More work is being done on this front, so please stay tuned. We’ll share updates here in the Community.
Hey @dnovitsky, you can actually already provide a link to your website in your profile. You'll just need to visit the view of your profile and hit the "edit" button next to your business name. There you'll find the provided space to add your website URL. As far as a tracker, that isn't something we offer yet, but a great suggestion there.
