Nobody knows better than you that being an entrepreneur is really hard. In addition to the work itself, you also have to think about finding new customers, hiring and managing employees, handling the finances — the list goes on and on. Unfortunately, it isn't always easy to get the information and the support you need. And there's no designated place to get advice, work through problems, or celebrate victories.

That’s why we created the new Thumbtack Pro Community, a space where pros just like you, from across the country and in every industry, can come together to ask questions, get answers and share ideas. Because, while you might be independent, you’re certainly not alone. Welcome to your new small business hub.

Connect with other pros.

The Thumbtack Pro Community is your home base, where you can connect with other pros and talk about — well, whatever you want. That includes everything from “How should I respond to a bad review?to Which tax deductions should I claim?You can also find inspiring stories from other Self Made pros and network with other pros in your industry or city.

Win more jobs.

Thumbtack has changed a lot in the last few months. That’s why we’ve dedicated a whole section of the Pro Community to using Thumbtack, with discussion boards on everything from how to set your job preferences and build a strong profile, to managing your Thumbtack calendar and understand pricing and refunds. If your fellow pros can’t answer your Thumbtack-related questions, members of our customer success team are always ready to help.

Get up to speed.

If you’re new to Thumbtack, the Pro Community gives you a space to ask questions about how Thumbtack works and talk to fellow pros about getting started. We’ve also linked some really helpful information in there on how to setup your account, turn on Instant Match and succeed on Thumbtack today.

Talk shop.

Learn more about running your business on the Community’s Small business blog. We’ve created useful guides to help you take advantage of seasonal marketing, get more reviews and set your prices (to name a few). Are you an expert in any of these areas or on topics like them? Start a discussion on the Trending topics board to share your expertise and hear from other small business owners about what has and hasn’t worked for them.

Hone your craft.

You spend every day engrossed in the nitty gritty details of your work. Which type of bolt cutters will work best on a root damaged PVC pipe? How long do other limousine companies give customers to cancel their reservation? Have any landscapers found a mulch and garden supplier they love in the Charlotte area? The Pro Community is a place to talk things out with people who care just as much as you do.
