@jcp I see many leads and jobortunities (IDK what else to call them) that are priced as high as $70. It does not sicken me, per se; just makes me cautious. They may turn out to be a viable lead, or not. I never accept them as the ghost rate is still high. My cap is @$25 and accepting even that is largely based on how that price is determined. I have a firm policy of not paying more than 5% of any event's potential revenue. As Mike Brady, L.A. Architect says: Caveat Emptor.
Over the past two weeks, I haven't received any leads is there a software issue. If I'm not getting leads than Thumbtack isn't getting my money lol
@jcp because this thread's purpose is for discussing the aspects of the new Price Assurance. I want to insert a quick reminder to please try to make sure your contributions are related to the specific thread where you post. In the future, if you want to discuss a different topic (like the cost of leads) please try to find a more related thread.
It's true that the cost has changed, but so has what you're actually paying for. Back when you were paying lower amounts, it was likely to send a quote with no guarantee of any response. Or the lead reached out, but we didn't have pro preferences to see how good of a match it could be. Now pros only pay if a customer responds or reaches out to you directly which has shown overall to hold more value, hence the higher prices.
