1) How can you have a "TOP Pro" Badge when the program isn't even launched ... nor is it described. Further...why are two different Moderators saying different things... one says it's not available, and the other says you can download it... What's more, the one who says you CAN download it doesn't provide a link. So, I have one, fairly straightforward question: What is the program all about, and where can I find information on it?
Hi @bobd2359 our Top Pro program is indeed launched and has been around for quite some time. Go here to learn more about it and let me know if you have any questions: https://help.thumbtack.com/article/the-thumbtack-top-pro-program.
Hey there, the Top Pro Badge/Widget will be available on July 25th. The Top Pro Flag (which is what shows up on your profile) was supposed to show up today, however, there's been a delay. The team's working on it right now and should be on your profile by the end of the day. We'll be keeping people updated in this thread: https://community.thumbtack.com/t5/Forum/Top-Pro-Badge/m-p/2705#M759
Oh for Pete's sake! This is another example of TT's goofy thinking. I honestly do not think more potential customers give a HOOT if someone has a "Top Pro" widget on their profile! If I were looking to hire someone, say, to plants shrubs for me, that would be the LAST thing I would look for in fact, I would probably shy away from that Pro because I would suspect all they did was pay a big fee to have this silly "Badge." This reminds me of The Girl Scouts, for heavens sake.
Potential customers on the whole look for several things, depending on the type of job. Price would be very important. For some trades, past experience or training would be key. It all depends on what your trade is. In house cleaning, people want a decent price, and many have other issues. They often look for honesty, sincerity, reliability, or even if the Pro likes their pets or minds being around children! They are NOT going to be impressed with a silly Top Pro Badge. Give me a break!!
@missannienow Receiving a Top Pro badge is a status many pros take great pride in. It is something we thought up, but not for some goofy reason. We want the professionals who are excelling in their field and on Thumbtack to be honored for their hard work. The Top Pro badge is a way for customers to see that we know these pros have made a lot of customers happy and are actively a part of our site.
