Re: Has anyone been contacted by HomeGuide, a copycat of thumbtack?

Hi,  you replied to my post today on Thumbtack.  I followed your advice and signed up.  I just copied and pasted a post I did a few minutes ago on Homeguide to paste into this box, and oddly the top of the screeen says "Thumbtack"..... what is happening???  Please see my comments below.  Thank you. 
 
Re: Has anyone been contacted by HomeGuide, a copycat of thumbtack?

Someone told me about Homeguide today during a chat that was initiated by Thumbtack about how "promoting is working for you."  What a surprise.... it's not, says me and a myriad of other dissatisfied Thumbtack pros.  So, this evening I signed up with Homeguide.  I wonder if this is legit seeing as it is a verbatim copy of Thumbtack.  I filled in everything anyway out of despiration trying to breathe life back into my business since Thumbtack's changes has crushed it.  I did have difficulty uploading more than 5 images.  I spent a couple of hours repeating the process and even restarting my computer.... to no avial.  Finally left a message with tech support.  I'm anxious to see what happens next.  It was strange from the start of the process as to how there was no mention about how Homeguide works.  Because of my TT experience I knew where to look about costs etc., but no mention of the process up front.  Hmmnnn???   Any feedback would be helpful.

Yes, I have, I was wondering who they  were. I am not happy with Thumbtack new prices. I am paying $55 for a lead, are you kidding me? The pricing is ridiculous now and is not working.

When TT started going down the tubes for me in October, I also tried to get biz on HG and bought a credit pack: nada so far. When I questioned this, I was told it was "slow" in my area. Really am hurting as TT was the bulk of my new clients. Couldn't find a home office for HG--minimal info on the site. I'm a pet sitter, if anyone's interested in small biz type.

Re: Has anyone been contacted by HomeGuide, a copycat of thumbtack?

I signed on to HG last fall, after TT became so outrageously expensive. It hasn't been worthwhile at all! No leads or contact inquiries?!
