@Dessi thank you so much for reaching out! I'm truly happy to hear that this change is something you're excited about for you and your business. You've been killing it on Thumbtack and I hope nothing but more success for you in the future. What are you most excited about with our new platform?
@Dessi I'm glad it works for you and you're happy with the pricing structure, you are one of the few. For me, the use of Promote would cost me considerable, unrecoupable monies. With 90% of my clients, I need to see their house, in order to come up with an accurate estimate for electrical work.
This morning's example, client contacted me, he wanted recessed light fixtures installed and some receptacles rewired, on the outskirts of my geographical area. He aready purchased the fixtures, receptacles, and switches, 'just needed me to bring my tools'. Once again, I would have to see, or at least speak with him, to determine if there was an accessible attic, if this was a ranch home, otherwise I'd be chopping walls & fishing ceilings. Knowing he's already purchased material, the job wouldn't be cost effective for me (I work on a fixed price, rather than hourly). Had promote been on, this job would have cost me $25 when the client contacted me and I still would have declined the job, simply knowing the above information.
As I 'viewed competition', this client had contacted no less than 9 other pros, two of whom replied to him.
I'll leave Promote off, that way I can pick and choose who I want to quote.
