We reached out to some of our most successful pros in the Miami area and asked them to talk about their business, share their tips for using targeting preferences to reach the right customers, and offer a piece of general advice for other business owners.
Here are some of the awesome video submissions we received. Check them out and add your voice to the mix in a comment below.
Bert is a military veteran, a 4-year Top Pro, and the owner of Home Inspections of Mid-Florida, LLC. Since joining Thumbtack in 2014, Bert has been hired more than 350 times and has received almost 250 reviews.
Marcela is the owner of Ville Clean Services. Legally blind and a first-time entrepreneur, she immigrated to Miami from Brazil with almost no English and used Thumbtack to build up both her language skills and her business over time. She has been a Top Pro since 2016, has 170 hires and 100 reviews, and now has a full-time crew of employees working for her.
Jeff C. is a Top Pro two years running, and has exponentially grown Precision Wood Flooring, LLC since beginning to use Thumbtack. From a husband and wife "mom-and-pop shop", they now have 7+ full time employees, multiple trucks, and growing. They’ve been hired almost 50 times and target 100% of leads.
Thumbtack has been very good for my business. However, to grow your business you can't rely only on thumbtack. It is important to go out and meet realtors. The best way I found was to go to open houses. When you drop information off at a realtors office it usually ends up in never never land.
