We're seeing a lot of great suggestions on the "Let's talk about your profile" thread. If you have suggestions that pertain more to pricing rather than a profile, please send them here.
Thank you for asking. Rather than looking for profile Improvements I'm looking for a huge reduction in pricing for speakers. I would gladly pay say 20% of income from event if I was guaranteed a booking. I would pay not more than .5% to 1% of expected income for leads. I realize that others do pay your current fees... so I really don't expect a change here....
My name is John and I'd really like to start doing busines with thumbtack again, but I will NOT until we know what the price of the bid is going to be BEFORE we make it.
My first bid under your new guidlines cost $38.00 for a job that would have paid $250.00 had I gotten it. When I decided to jin your new biding plan I figured ok cool, probably be the same $5.00 to $10.00 per bid.
Now I have no idea how many others bid that same job with me, but I know of at least one the service that got the job and I am thinking they paid $38.00 too.
Home Advisor is starting to look good to me, I've done well with Thumvtack but I am not going to spend hard earned money on bid prices I don't know until after someone contacts me.
