Thank you for posting for all to see. So that it gets better visibility to all pros, would it be possible to post this in the front page of the Thumbtack Community Site perhaos as a highlight or something that the users can see when they enter the community pages?
Thanks in advance.
At 20:13 of the live chat video Marco said "If I'm sending you something that you look at and say 'Not worth my time, not worth my money', we haven't done our jobs right."
I've been asking Thumbtack to stop sending me Wedding Videography leads for 2 months now.
What say you Marco?
@StoriesUpSTL I know that this is something you've discussed and shared frustrations about with our teams on more than one occasion. I just want you to know that your feedback has been passed on for review.
That is one of the most frustrating things about Thumbtack. I complain about something that:
A) Is a waste of MY time
B) Wouldn't be that hard for your coding team to fix.
Over and over again, you and @Meckell say my "feedback has been passed on for review."
I'm not bidding on these jobs. I don't have Promote turned on for Wedding and Event Videography. So this has ZERO monetary effect on Thumbtack. In fact, I'm guessing that the time you are spending responding to me and reading this message is greater than the time it would take your coding team to create and impliment a change.
I've tried many different things to solve this issue on my end because the "team" is of no help. I'm going to say that I charge $10K/hr for Wedding Videography and see if that stops them coming to my inbox. It is absurd that I should have to do something like this rather than you creating a system where I get to opt out of the type of jobs that I don't want to see (both in notification form and having customer ask me for a quote).
@Kameron I'll also add that MANY videographers do corporate events and DON'T DO weddings. Now you've updated the system to where we Pros can't fine tune the settings (Travel areas, Job types, and times) unless we choose Promote. Ok, then separate Corporate Event Videography from Wedding Videography. I'll turn Promote on for Corporate Videography if you let me set a minimum budget. I could then remove Wedding Videography as an active service. Many pros have been asking for this for months and you guys are not changing it.
