Re: Censorship

When 400 views in a month only develop into 7 leads, then you know that most of the views are tire kickers. The ratio of views to clients is absurd

I just checked my insights over the past month - 6775 views, 24 leads. For this week: 950 views, 2 leads. And the large majority of those leads vanish after the first contact.

If we as pros can not have a conversation here, why even have a forum.

If I as a pro express some sentiment and others may feel the same, why delete my post. Why not permit the conversation because maybe we can all learn something.

Why is my freedom to express myself being denied here?

 

Re: Admin Deleted Post

I've had post deleted myself I found that it's all about how you word them . If you got something to gripe about put it on here but offer a solution to whatever it is you're having issues with and they shouldn't delete it that was their reasoning behind deleting mine anyway. So when I rewrote the post with a little different wording and what I thought was a good solution to fix the problem it did not get deleted. See customer chose you and solution post on here and that was one I'm talking about

Re: Censorship

I have a story that almost proves ThumbTack generates its own lead.

I call Thumbtack in the AM regarding why my profile did not show up in searches vs other pros ( this was before the Promote change). The support " specialist " after some very condescending remarks suggested I add Military Discount to my profile as a way to STAND OUT.

The next " LEAD " I get that same afternoon the question that the " LEAD " ask me that get me charged $$$ is, you guessed it " DO YOU OFFER MILITARY DISCOUNT". 

The client never responded again no matter how many responses I sent.

I called Thumbtack again and the support " specialist " tells me that life is just weird and random, tells me a sad story about how he never knew his father until one day he met him by chance !!!!!!!

All of this to get $$$ out of me... 

Now you tell me what do you think.

Re: Censorship

@MarioRamirez it wouldn't make sense for us to generate fake leads, that goes against everything we stand for. This situation really does seem to be just a coincidence. How long ago did this happen? Can I get the name of the customer? I'm curious about this and want to look into it further.
