Right now, only four percent of all pros on Thumbtack are Top Pros. Customer love them. Other pros look to them. And anyone can become one, whether you’re new to Thumbtack or you’ve been winning jobs for years.
Here’s a little bit about the latest Top Pro class and what it takes to be eligible next time around.
What it takes to make Top Pro.
We select a new Top Pro class every six months, based on pros’ performance going back a full year. To be eligible for Top Pro status, you have to:
Receive at least five verified reviews from Thumbtack customers. (What does this mean? Read more here.)
Respond to the first message or call from interested customers within 24 hours at least 75 percent of the time — not counting responses to customers you’ve been refunded for. (Sound tricky? See tips for following up here).
That hard work pays off. Thumbtack Tops Pros are rewarded with a badge on their profile, priority customer service and exclusive invites to Thumbtack events and more.
Meet the latest group.
Top Pros are a diverse bunch. The current class include professionals from every corner of the country and in more than 200 occupations. Roughly half are earning Top Pro status for the first time — a major feat — and 66percent have been in business for more than five years.
Who better to teach you about what it takes to become a Top Pro than the Top Pros themselves? Respond to this post with a question (everything from ‘how did you make your profile?’ to ‘what should I do with add-on services?’ and more) and we’ll send it to our latest Top Pros. Next month, we’ll publish a post with a handful of those questions answered.
