Artists and Illustrators, Leads are mostly a Game of Chance

Just read the new targeting policy in effect July 14th. I've been with TT for many years and obtain most of my business here, but being forced to turn on targeting if I want to show up in search results may just be the last straw for m... Read more

New Targeting policy hurts consumers as well.

When a consumer looks for a service on TT they assume they are seeing a fair representatin of pros in their area that are a pretty good fit.  They do not assume that the list is filtered by those who are paying to appear on that list w... Read more
