Hey everyone! It’s Monday so that means it’s time for a new Resource of the week! 

Today’s resource is a 101 on all things targeting preferences. Many of you will already be familiar with the concept the article covers, but it’s always good to have a solid foundation of the basics.

Check it out and use this thread to share any questions you may have. Also let me know if you have any ideas for new topics you would like to see covered on Thumbtack Help.

@Drew Resource of the week is an interesting innovation. I am not all together clear on what it is about, though. I just noticed the existence of this thread and will stay current with it to better understand its nature and intent. 

Recently, I have dipped my toe in the water and have implemented the Target feature for my services. Two are set for very specific towns in my state, as keeping limited geographic options is most prudent. 

There is one facet that is curious: the minimum range setting for customers coming to me is defaulted for one mile. All my work is mobile; I go to the customer and never the other way around. I do not wish to be charged for any leads that match the other preferences and includes the aforementioned as a "preference". Thanks.
