In regards to what I would like on my profile. I think it's important to have people who are trying to hire me to have some sort of photo of themself and/or some way to make their profile verified. I've had a few spam clients who I've used credits on in hopes to get work, but in the end, it was just a scam to try to get my credit card information. I know thumbtack is doing all they can to make the site better, and I for one am grateful that you guys have made it to where I don't lose credits if people don't look at my profile.
I'd like to have flexibilty in the hours available. Different days.... different times. I don't like to pay when I'm not getting offers. Or that even when people just want to ask a question we still wrote.
I want my profile to show that I am a warm, encouraging music teacher who can help students learn to improvise and compose as well as read music. I will also help them to play beautifully, shaping phrases and using dynamics for expression.
@Monzo, this is an awesome suggestion! And yes, we created this Community so that you all can help each other out!
So feel free to start a discussion thread about any topic you'd like right on the communite homepage (community.thumbtack.com). Hopefully some of your fellow pros will weigh in!
I run a nationwide online business, and I would like the ability to say that in my profile. In addition, I would like a feature on my profile to increase the range where I'm able to get leads.
As of now the range only allows up to 150 miles radius. This makes me miss a lot of viable leads as an online business. At this time online coaching is a huge industry (that's continuing to grow). This would be a great option, and I would utilize Thumbtack a lot more if that feature was available.
